And like that…It’s November.
What in the world? It’s November! I just got used to writing 2017 as the year. We are in the thick of holiday season (or very near to the thick – is that a thing?) and I am definitely relying on my minimalistic weekly designs to guide me through this busy time of year. I decided this month to start at the beginning of the month instead of half the week’s spread from October and the other half as November. So I ended up with a couple of half-week layouts.
I had big plans for the start of this month
My big plans were to start this month off beautifully. I even went grocery shopping this morning to get ahead on…well.. life without having to drag my three kids along. All those good intentions were met at every turn with something just trying to bring me to my knees.
You ever have one of those days you know, the day that just won’t quit? That was today for me. I have worked very hard to simplify this next month and show more gratitude. I firmly believe that if I wouldn’t have tried so hard to include these two things in my life today could have quite possibly knocked me down for a good part of the month. It was that bad. I didn’t realize I would gain strength from simplifying my life and having an enhanced attitude of gratitude.
This week has just five boxes on this page plus a ‘to do’ section – it’s strange how a minimalistic design can bring such peace and tranquillity amidst chaos.
What do you do for tranquility?
So I would like to know what you do that helps bring tranquility to your life when your whole day goes awry.
Do you meditate?
Do you exercise?
Binge watch your favorite show?
After I post this, I am going to go mindlessly doodle. Maybe it will be amazing. Maybe not. Today it doesn’t matter because I need it to mentally recharge. Regardless of the outcome of my doodles, I feel like because I planned – not just my day but planned my month to live beautifully I am able to overcome and bounce back ready for a new day with renewed resolve.
Dimensions of the Spread:
Here are the dimensions of the single page plan – this could be used for a work week with just 5 days and fit two weeks to a two-page spread. Sign up below for the free printable (Letter & A4 available). I created two layouts – one with one side blank + a version with two mirrored sides.
Save to Pinterest for later – and while you are at it, follow me on Pinterest for more inspiration!
Remember to plan your life so you live beautifully.
