Happy Monday, friends!
I hope your Lunar New Year was great. I love new year because to me it signifies new beginnings. What better time is there to look back on how you have been living your life and thinking of ways to not "improve" it per se, but to enhance it.
So this year, I have vowed to be a bit more organized and mindful of how I spend my time. That's why I have decided to start PLANNING!
The type of planner I chose is the Passion Planner. I opted for the "Classic" version because the "Compact" was a little too small. I got a new bag for my laptop and this planner fits in perfectly, so it all worked out. The reason why I chose the Passion Planner as opposed to other planners, (which I am sure are glorious in their own ways) is because each Passion Planner has an intro/orientation part in the starting pages which lets you reflect on your life and allows (actually urges) you to think of how you can make steps to achieve your goals. Each month has another reflection/evaluation section after it that asks how you did in the month, what/who you are thankful for and what your next steps are. This planner is great for me because I can doodle, write in inspiration quotes, keep track of daily habits, write out my plans, draw, paste in photos and other mementos, and keep track of homework and work schedule. I can also schedule in "no adulting rest days" because we ALL need them. Self care, people!
The other reason why I chose this planner is because a PINAY is founder and CEO! Angelia Trinidad hustled to make her dream of creating this planner a reality. Check her out on YouTube. I love referring to Passion Planner's YT channel for tips and suggestions on how to use the planner from Angeli herself and her Passion Planner team. I mean, a Pinay CEO though. How inspiration and empowering is THAT?! That in itself makes me want to fill my own planner with things to do, people to see, and occasions to celebrate...even if it is just "National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!"...which I have a sticker for. I like planners because it gives to something to look at and days to look forward to.
Despite my busy schedule, I am going to make 2017 a great one and the Passion Planner will definitely help in my journey for the next year. I am loving it so far. Do you have a planner? How do you use yours?
Til next time!
No, I did not get paid to write this post. I just love this product so much and I want to share <3
