KEEPING TRACK OF MY LIFE.

Keeping things all together isn’t easy for me. I feel like often times that I have too much on my plate, I don’t know my left from my right, and that I don’t know if I am coming or going. With lots of trial and error, I have finally found a system that works for me. It keeps me on track, keeps our memories, and lets me keep track of all of King’s milestones and growth in one place. I have had a lot of people ask me how I do it all and I don’t honestly, but having a good routine and system is what works to help me to stay on track and to know where I am going.
I always have two planners. I have a big one at my desk and a small one in my purse and with me all the time. I honestly write down everything twice. It helps me to remember better and no matter what planner I am looking at, everything is always there. I color code everything. Pink is my work schedule. Yellow is my nursing schedule. Blue is everyday life. Green is pay days. Black is birthdays or events. Red is deadlines. Purple is everything from King’s milestones to his growth. It took me a minute to get into my system and for it to be a habit. Now that it is, it is what keeps me going, knowing what I have, and where I am supposed to be.
Since we are building our new home, everything has to be organized. Things get super crazy with bouncing between my in-laws and my parents home so keeping everything written down and known about is a must. I write down everything from dates the contractors are working on our home, meetings with our builder, things I need to purchase for our home (hello farm house sink!), appointments for King, things that I need to post about on social media or my website, lunch dates, meeting calls, etc. AT-A-GLANCE is the best I have used to keep everything organized. I can write down super detailed information in the weekly pages, and a brief about the day in the monthly section.
I love the ending of one year and the starting of a new one. I get to look back through my planners and see all of our fun memories, King’s growth, what we have accomplished, etc. It is my journal. I keep all of them and it is one of my favorite things to stick pictures in (when I remember) and then have those in my planner to add to the memories in there. A new planner means new goals, new accomplishments, and new growth. Do you have a system that works for you? I would love to hear what it is!
The new 2017 AT-A-GLANCE collections represent different design elements and various formats, so there is a fit for anyone’s style. I love the floral planner for happiness and color into my out and about life. The grey is perfect for at my desk where I love everything to be streamline and clean. They both fit my personalities so well and they both help me to keep my life together.
