They help me stay organized, prevent me from forgetting things, keep my goals on track and most importantly they help me to clear my mind so I can function...and sleep at night! Life is a bit busy these days with my scrapbooking business, work, upcoming travel, my daughter's wedding and a new little endeavor...2 actually...that I will talk more about soon. It can definitely all be overwhelming at times.
This morning as I was getting ready for work I was thinking about all that I need to get done in the next week. I admit, I was kinda freaking out a little bit. It might have been the somewhat random stack of vacation clothes and supplies my eyes landed on as I walked past the guest room or the pile of half completed scrapbook orders laying on my work table that need to get finished and out the door over the next few days or the box of wedding stuff that needs to get put in the mail to my daughter asap but is waiting for me to finish a little DIY project to add to the box first.
So as my hair dryer was working it's magic it occurred to me that my frantic state is probably because I have not taken the time to get everything down on paper. So I tossed one of my many journals into my purse and promised myself that I would get it all down in black and white (ok, probably blue and white!) TODAY.
And then, as if a prompt from the universe, I open my Pinterest account and see pin this from Janine Ripper's blog.
Of course, these ideas could totally sidetrack me so for now I will have to add "make new lists" to my current "to do" list...right underneath finish scrapbook orders and pack my bags. :)
