*For today’s comment, I would love to hear your thoughts on the quote below…

My thoughts: This quote really struck a chord with me. I did not major in graphic design, let alone take a single art or graphic design class in college. I pretty much taught myself everything I know after I was a young mom with three kids. It was the passion I had for color & design that drove me to learn through online tutorials & lots of practice.  There have been so many times I’ve been ready to give up because I doubted myself & my abilities. Sometimes I would worry that other people would think I was a “fake” because I didn’t have a degree in graphic design. The funny thing was, the more people praised me, or the more jobs I got in the scrapbook industry, the more I would start to doubt myself & want to give up. The mind is a funny thing, isn’t it? That’s why I love this quote! When I first read it, it hit me that I was truly my own worst enemy when it came to doing what I love. I knew I had to start believing in myself in order to move forward. No amount of outside praise or criticism could help or hurt me…it had to come from within. I’m not saying I’m 100% positive with myself all the time now…far from it. But whenever that negative self-talk starts to creep in, I read this quote…and it helps…a LOT.

My thoughts: I love April’s quote because it is the key to change. It doesn’t matter how much we know if we don’t apply that knowledge. And it doesn’t matter how willing we might be if we never act. The only way we can improve & move forward in our lives is to DO! Let’s make 2015 a year of “DOING”!

My thoughts: I have to admit, I am naturally a last minute person. It would be so easy for me to say (and I’m sure I have before), “There’s nothing I can do to change that about me…it’s just the way I am.”  But I’ve realized that if I really desire to change something, it is 100% possible.  One way to inspire change is through thinking, considering, & acting on a quote that inspires you. That’s what this quote does for me.  It inspires me to want to make the most of each day. By doing so, I can positively impact the future days to come. I am super excited to challenge myself to turn this weakness into a strength!

What about you? Is this something you could work on too? Or if this is a strength of yours, any tips for the rest of us as we work on it? I’d love to hear your thoughts below!

*For today’s comment, I want to hear your thoughts on the quote (and *Side Note) below…

My thoughts: I love this quote for February because it’s the month of showing love for others. However, it can also bring out feelings of low self-worth.  It all depends on your focus. So this year, don’t wait around for someone else to make you feel special…go out & find ways to lift others. The blessings in return will be far greater than any bouquet of roses or a box of chocolates.

*Side Note: I’m thinking about hosting a monthly blog challenge to go along with the quote each month.  So, for example, in February we could focus on ways to serve others. Like picking a few people each week to give a “thank you” valentine to…expressing your love & appreciation for their influence in your life.  I want to keep it simple, but also challenge ourselves to focus more this year on what’s most important.  Any thoughts on this? Leave me a comment below!

My 2015 Life Planner – Sneak Peek #1…

For the next 30 days, I will be posting a daily sneak peek leading up to the launch of my 2015 Life Planner! The planner will be available for purchase on Wednesday, October 15th.

This year I will also have a couple of different options if you’d prefer to order the planner printed & shipped (as opposed to buying the download). Pre-orders for the printed planner will begin on Oct.15th & planners will be shipped by December 15th. Depending on the volume of orders, the printed planner will be available on a first-come, first serve basis. I personally print & assemble all of the planners myself, so I can only handle a certain volume during the holiday season…not to mention I’m expecting a baby any day now!

More details will be available as we get closer to the official launch date, so be sure to check back daily! I can’t wait for you to see what I’ve been working on!

Do you want a 50% discount on the download to my planner? Then be sure to comment* each day & pin the daily image to Pinterest!

(You’ll need to do this for all thirty posts in order to get the discount.)

CW_2015_LifePlanner_QUOTES_01_JAN

I’ll start out with my thoughts on January’s quote!  The reason I chose this quote for January was because it reminds us that we are in charge of our own lives.  Granted, we can’t predict or prevent everything, but we can create a life that we cherish, regardless of what comes our way.  So this next year, don’t be a “victim” of your life’s circumstances, choose to create something beautiful & meaningful…the choice is always yours.
