A Glimpse Into My Planner – What Happened in November

I got a new planner this year and so I started a series that I titled “A Glimpse Into My Planner”.
Each month* I’ve been giving you a glimpse of what’s been happening, because I now keep EVERYTHING in this planner since there is a space for EVERYTHING.

a glimpse into my November planner

Just to recap:

Each day not only has lines for my to do list, it also has 3 sections that I love:  

  • The Big 3 – This helps me prioritize.  What 3 things MUST I get done today?
  • Wellness – Daily workouts.
  • Gratitude – 3 things for which I’m grateful on that given day.

I also make note of things the Lord shows me during my daily quiet time.  

This new planner has reduced my desk by 3 books, and I have it all in one place and I love it.  I also love going back through my month to see what worked, what didn’t, what I got done, what I still need to do and so on.

By the end of November, things were starting to settle down.  God was getting my attention and it was time for me to heed my own advice and start turning my holidays into holy days.

Life Lessons Learned Playing Pokemon Go

I recently started playing Pokemon Go.  I know, I know. You don’t have to say it.  You’re thinking that is so yesterday, right?  

Lessons from playing Pokemon Go

When it was all the rage, I had no desire to get involved nor did my son.  But about 2 years ago my son started playing, and recently he thought it would be fun to set me up with an account.  So I let him. {Side note: Moms, if your 15 year old son wants you to do ANYTHING with them, you say yes. Am I right?}

I’m still learning, but within the first few days some lessons jumping out at me.  I started finding lessons for life from playing Pokemon Go. Even if you have never played the game, stick with me.  I’ll explain it in my simplistic terms and show you how we can learn a little from it.
