Are you transcending? How to Keep Organized & Motivated
Ok, like I said... I know I am supposed to be a "millenial" and all but I still do not 100% trust technology. My friend who is 30 and in college was saying how all the younger students in her class take all their notes on their phone. um WHAT? That could get deleted. You don't have a lot of control when you do things on your phone. Yes the cloud is great, but we all know that technology is bittersweet. Which is why I am and always will be a hand-to paper- planner kinda girl. I have a desk calendar, a wall calendar and my transcedingwaves planner that I carry with me in my purse.
This planner is fantastic because it breaks everything down by month, week and day. There are spaces for a to-do list, we all need those! And spaces for goals, aspirations, affirmations and for reflecting. Writing is very calming for me and when I can organize my thoughts or things I need to accomplish I feel like half my duties are done for the day. One of my favorite spaces is for finance to keep you on a weekly budget. Some of us shoppers need those :)
Just as important as it is to have and meet professional goals, it is just as important if not more to have personal goals. Sometimes they co-inside! I love the bounding of the planner as well, it's leather bounded and locked with a magnet. They do have some other designs as well you can check out in the link above. You can use my code STYLEMYMIND for 10% off. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Some of us, just like an old school way of organization, doesn't mean we're old haha!
Friday night and the lights are just right. That was the setting of this perfectly weathered evening on February 15th in Channelside, Tampa. Don Me Now & Bubbly Barchique was well lit, fully stocked and ready to welcome guests.
The night started out with a fine variety of champagne and rosÃ© flowing through the crowd of ladies and a few spectacular gentleman who graced our presence. Ladies entered, ordered their love-themed drinks and went straight to shopping! Of course there were many shopping-breaks to pose for the perfect photo in front of the Valentine's backdrop.
Well, I never thought this would be the first blog I would write in 2019. I had taken a little break but have written some new content that I have not yet posted for February. Definitely did not want to have to be writing this but she deserves for people to know what an earth angel she truly was.
I met Holly about 3 years ago when her step-son passed away at 27 years old from cancer. You may recall a past blog I shared about Ricky, my cousin Geena's boyfriend. He was a great guy and is still thought of everyday. During this tragic time, Rick and Holly were still able to smile and keep their faith, trusting in God that there was some sort of miraculous reasoning behind the death of their son. I admired their faith because mine was not nearly as dedicated and holy as theirs. They later told us, that they felt like Ricky passing brought us into their lives and that was the best thing he could have given to them.
But for me it's about a season that makes me feel safe, and loved and cozy. It's like being hugged by someone who loves you so much they just can't let go. Christmas represents Jesus and when I really started to fall in love was in 2012 when I really found my faith and learned the story of Jesus's birth.
