Aloha my scrappy friends!!
It is getting closer to the end of January. How has your month gone so far? Have you been able to stick to the plan you thought up? or have you struggled to stay on top of all those goals you wrote down hoping to obtain?
I am slowly and sadly realizing that just because you plan it, it doesn’t matter that you can really keep up with all that you hope to do. Appointments have you tired early in the evening, the kids struggle with you get finish their school work, the dog keeps stealing shoes and the kid’s toys to get your attention, and so many other things that are just apart of life happen. It’s natural.
I keep thinking about my One Little Word I choose for my year, Intention. Are the things I am doing this month, now that it is the end of the month, acting on this word? What changes do I need to make for the next month so that I can fully live out this word, Intention.
It is hard for me, to be honest. I want so much for this year!! It’s only January and already things are changing tracks from what I even imagined could happen and in a good way. (One of these things I will be able to share coming up really soon!!) I hate to think that it is only one month in and I need to slim down what I had hoped to do, but also being honest, if I want to get more out of this year I need to be easy on my myself.
So want does that look like for my channel, remember that amazing list of days I shared that I would be sharing?! I do, it has been yelling at me all this week. YELLING!! I have been struggling to post everything I really want to, and I even wasn’t able to finish my Podcast Inspired Layout. It is started at least, but I don’t feel like that really matters.
I am thinking I really can only commit to posting on Youtube Three days a week. So I am going to be posting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I am hoping to share the series that I planned to on those days. I may some weeks, when I have less DT stuff due, be able to post an extra layout or two. This week I do have a Midori PL video to share and a Bible journaling video too. Those will be posted this weekend, but my Scrap Bin layout may be late this weekend.
I know you scrappy fiends are happy with whatever I share with you, the pressure is very much the pressure I put on myself. And it’s strong, I want to give so much, that is just me. Though, I also need to be able to give to my family and myself too.
Today I signed up for Big Picture Classes, I really want to take some classes to learn more this year. The more I learn the more inspired to create. And that is a very good thing!!
Especially since I want to create a class this year too!!
I hope you are taking it easy on yourself and giving yourself grace to change your goals and plans this year to match what your life really needs. It is so necessary for us to do this on a regular basis.
I look forward to seeing you friends around this weekend!! I have a few things ready to share with you and I am excited to share them!!
Have a great and inspired Weekend!!
