I realized over the last several days how dull and humdrum have become. I’ve got this beautiful baby and buckets of creativity all around me and I have become ROUTINE! I hate routine. It is necessary for the baby but it is strange to me to live with such a schedule.
Instead of planning my whole life using Excel, I am going to take colorful makers and write it out on a big piece of paper and put on the frig. I write in my Franklin planner regularly scheduling out my life, setting goals. All of this I do with an ink pen and #2 pencil. Not today, I’m writing with gel pens-bright orange, green, and blue.
This morning, I put my makeup on differently, am wearing striped socks in stead of my usual white ones, and have made myself a cup of coffee. I never drink coffee.
Later, I must go to the bank. I always go through the drive through and with a baby it’s much easier to do just that. I’ve got business card sheets and will design a “You Rock” card to give to the teller in my deposit today. I am going to hand these out wherever I go.
There is plenty to do and it can’t be finished today, but I can start writing out a plan; a plan in rich vibrant color. With hope, faith, and love.
