Keeping up with life, Organizing my to-do list, and Dolly Parton's words of wisdom

So its been a busy couple of weeks, but I have been trying to keep up with life, and making sure not to be too hard on myself when I do not =). The planner is going well, and I have been trying different ideas to keep my daily to-do list in order.  If you didn't get a chance before to check out some of my planner pages here is what the to-do list looks like, and you can download it here  and you can check out my other planner pictures here

So I tried using a highlighter to organize the order of importance, I also always number the things I have to do, but since there is so many things to do itis hard to differentiate between everything. Then I got some number stickers that were pretty cool, but not always the best. I also have been breaking different to-dos into bubbles so it is more accurate and I can cross something off even if the whole project is completed. It also helps me organize the steps I need to complete big tasks on the list.

So far the highlighter and use of a multi color pen coupled with numbering has helped. I have also learned to break the projects up over days now. It helps to plan and look forward and makes me feel less stressed out like I have to get everything done today.

This is important; I have been trying to remember this, and I got some amazing inspirational stickers the other day (pics soon!) that remind me, but I have to be gentle with myself. I have to give myself a break and remember I need time for me too. It sounds weird to read that last sentence, but it is true.  Sometimes we all need a break, a time to recoup, and regenerate. So on that note I will leave you with this quote from Dolly Parton, Thank you Miss Parton for the words of wisdom.

“Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”

― Dolly Parton
