Thankful Thursdays - Getting It together

Besides being super grateful that the weekend is so close. I'm grateful for discovering Filofax and all of the great organizational ideas that I've found from within the Filofax community. I've honestly been trying to get my ish together but I'm honestly so full of ideas and intentions and the follow through FAILS! I'm super scatter brained because I'm always thinking 90,000 thoughts at the same time.

My Personal Assistants & Brain Savers Cali & Dulce

Since I've settled into my Filofax I have a place to corral all of my thoughts. From getting this blog back up  to completing the smallest do-do list. Things are getting done now! Before I just used a sticky note app on my phone but I pretty much ignored the notes on my home screen.Personalizing and decorating my planner is what I have to do to make it the most useful to me. Who doesn't like to look at cute things? Since I'm looking at it all the time I'm seeing what I wrote and getting things done. It's becoming a part of my daily routine.

I'm still a little all over the place and I don't think that will change. By nature I'm a dreamer and I thrive when I have a lot going on. When I'm bored I feel like life is over!
I still have a lot of work to do on the inside but I feel like everything is falling into place and for that I'm very grateful.
I've even started journaling again. In my A5. Everyday I write down the Peak of my day and the Pit of my day and five things. That I'm grateful for. I think it will be fun to look back at the pages and see that I was thankful for grilled cheese and pickles on Nov. 19th :) I use the Week on Two Page diary to do this.

I was trying to sync my WO2P between booth books and it was overwhelming and unnecessary for me since my A5 stays home. I do sync my Month on Two Page Grid Calendar. I also decorate color lined A5 paper to encourage myself to journal. I've caught myself journaling a lot in my Personal Size Filofax and that made me nervous so every few days I take those pages out and stick them in my journal section in my A5 and use washi tape. If it's a two sider mega saga rant I just run the tape along the edge so I can turn the page.

I can't tell you all of my secrets :)


P.S. I really am a mess. I found a box of Lucky Charms in my fridge and my Brita Water Pitcher in the pantry. Sad part I wasn't too surprised... Truth, when I can't find something it's usually in my fridge or pantry... Weirder part I don't spend a lot of time in the kitchen.. If you ask me for a fork I will open three drawers before I can find one.  *le sigh*....
