Brand New Life Balance Planner Available Now (Free)

For the longest time I wanted a school style planner for adult life and I never found one that was right for me, not to organize my doctors appointments or write gratitude, but to plan my goals and organize my thoughts and projects. I finally made one after seeing another blogger go to the hospital with heart issues it made me more aware that getting better at self care will only continue to wait so long before my body will turn on me like an unfed feral cat… so I made this planner for myself, but it would be easy to adjust it by simply clicking what is there and retyping or even copy pasting images from the computer, if anyone is interested I can give a tutorial on adjusting it, but really it seems pretty user friendly, so I’ll wait to see if there is any interest and if there is I’ll try to cover that.

A NOTE ABOUT EMOJITHUSIASM:

For me, the emojis pay homage to our different, but equal psychological “lens” of the world and celebrate my respect to diversity…

I’ve was a huge fan of symbology before emojis even existed. 1. They tie the left and right brain together for me, but 2. they are different for everyone’s systems, I actually love that, so what looks beautiful to me, may not work or may be ugly on your system. It sounds like a flaw in article or web design, but to me it’s a reminder of how much our soul’s lens color our world (a lot, but not completely).

I love looking at my blog from my phone, tablet and computer and seeing it differently.

I prefer the emojis to not be broken, but when they are, it reminds me of ancient sutras with certain words that are lost to time, rendered incomprehensible by language shifts.

I find it beautiful, freeing and healing to so easily add some color and beauty to the black and white words (which have beauty of their own). I use emojipedia.org to access emojis since I write from a computer.

WHAT’S NEXT?

I’ve started up again drawing after a long hiatus, I am supposed to illustrate for my sister’s book project “The Brave Peafowl” and I’ve been enjoying a small bit of gardening, but I’m also starting to go over the previous posts for glaring grammatical errors which impair clarity and take a few notes about topics I wanted to expound on or images that I wanted to create myself. I had the privilege of needing an image about Lokahi (life balance) and unintentionally finding myself (my own blog) for the first time on Google’s first page and it was a boost to find that people (like me) are looking for things I have here that are not yet find-able elsewhere, meaning it does matter a little bit what I do here, and I feel good about facing my shyness to speak about things that otherwise may be left unsaid and thus to an extent unspeakable.

Take an imaginary heart with you, they’re for you reader!
