I love my moleskine daily planner. Throughout 2016, this thing made me very happy. It is not 100% perfect for me as a planner–but to keep track of everything on a daily basis–as I tend to get very lost without it–it is superb. So, I wanted another one for 2017–and I ordered one–so since I knew it was going to be just for keeping track of what I do in a day, I figured I would buy the smaller daily planner rather than my beloved large daily planner. I also knew I would be buying a planner to actually plan in separately–and that that one would be larger.
Well, the smaller moleskine daily planner arrived–and it is small…very small…as I flipped through my larger one, it struck me that I keep track of a lot of things on a daily basis…and the smaller one–was too small to fulfill my needs.
I am not throwing this thing away. I let it sit on my desktop for a few days–but the idea of a 365 project started to eat away at my brain.
No way am I doing 365 sketches or doodles. I let go of that right away. I know I will get too cranky and too busy and too–whatever–to want to do something like that every day.
I also needed to have something in place that would keep me 1 honest and 2 interested in the process throughout the year–it took over a month for what I can do and what will work for me for me in the long-term.
I came up with For Your Inspiration Fridays, which you can read about here.
Basically, I am going to write down one quote–mantra–affirmation–statement — something — every single day of the year. Then, once a week, on Fridays, I am going to post them here on the blog, for your inspiration.
I don’t really plan to have a theme, say, monthly, or weekly. I am just going to grab the quote that most speaks to me on that particular day.
I hope you come join me for the journey.
