Have you ever felt like you lost who you were somehow? I’ve been going through that a bit lately. Actually, I’ve been going through that for quite some time now. I work so hard at being a mom and wife, but somewhere along the way I began forgetting to work on me. And I don’t just mean weight loss here. That seems to be a never ending battle for myself and for many other women. What I mean is that somewhere along the way I forgot to pursue the things that I’m passionate about… And eventually, somehow, somewhere along the way, I just forgot altogether what made me, well, me.
So I decided to do something about it. I’ve always loved journaling and I decided to join a group that was dedicated to helping women figure out just who they are outside of motherhood. A group that uses journaling to get to heart of who you are. I’m not promoting the group (not an affiliate, not getting paid) so I am not going to put any links or anything. I just wanted to come on my blog and share a little bit about something I enjoy that’s making a difference in my life.
I love planners. When we moved to Wyoming, I discarded a lot of my planning stash because I just felt like it was too much and I wasn’t using it to be productive anymore. I started just doing some regular calendar planning in my traveler’s notebooks and that was ok, but I wanted another full blown planner (I prefer to just use the traveler’s notebooks for journaling). Then the Happy Planner folks announced their new line… And they just happened to have one that was a perfect fit for me!
Right now, nothing makes me happier than my Bible and my journal. I love spending time with God and with my thoughts. I love that He is speaking very clearly to me right now. His Word is speaking. Things happening around me are being used for Him to speak through. It’s just nice.
And you know… focusing on God is a good way to feel less obsessed with weight. The weight will go eventually. The Lord wants me now.
I was able to have a lovely day out yesterday with my mom. During our adventures to nearby Montana, we visited Michaels and I picked up some planner goodies. I love planners and journals and all that stuff. I feel that I have finally landed on what works for me best in my planner and journaling style. Do you like to plan and journal?
This sweet washi tape made me so happy. I love the thin washi and I’d never seen this pack before so I was super excited to get it.
