The 2015 Life Planner is FINALLY done!!!

CrystalWilkerson_LifePlanner_Quotes

I have to admit, I was beginning to think this day would never come! Life with a newborn has been wonderful, but also a HUGE adjustment! I just want to say how much I appreciate the patience you guys have shown me as I’ve continually pushed the launch date back.  You’ve allowed me time to enjoy my sweet baby without feeling overly guilty about not getting things done.  Hopefully your patience was worth it!

I am really excited about this year’s planner! I’ve made several adjustments over the years since my first planner launched in 2011. I’ve tried to listen to your suggestions & incorporate as many ideas as possible into the planner. One of the biggest changes to the planner this year is the size. After much deliberation, I’ve decided to only design an 8.5×11 planner.  There are several reasons for this…the biggest one is I wanted & needed to simplify my life.  The smaller planner has been a huge customer service issue over the years. I was getting a ton of emails from people who were confused about how to print the pages, line up the holes, print two-sided, etc. Also, I felt like it was really hard to squeeze everything into a small page & still make it something you could actually write on.  I know it’s more compact for carrying around, but I’ve found a solution for the larger planner size that I am absolutely in love with. I will be sharing my new system with you this week!  I will also be walking you through the different sections of the planner later this week as well.

For now, you can click through the slideshows below to check out the new planner & you can go HERE to purchase the download! It will be on sale for 40% off through Saturday!

My 2015 Life Planner – Sneak Peek #12…

UPDATE TO THE LAUNCH OF MY 2015 LIFE PLANNER…

I am working on finalizing the planner this week! I had a house-full of family last week for the holidays, so I wasn’t able to work on it, but I am SO CLOSE to being finished!!! Thanks for hanging in there with me! Since it wasn’t ready by today, I will have a special belated “Cyber-Monday” sale when it launches! Be sure you’re signed up for my newsletter so you don’t miss out!

Thoughts on December’s Quote: This life is all about the relationships we have with other people, and while we can’t control how others treat us, we can control how we treat them. I love this quote because it reminds me that people are best influenced when we show forth love through appreciation & encouragement. Think of yourself…are you more motivated to improve when someone is critical or when someone is encouraging? Personally, I find it much easier to focus on improving myself when I’m being encouraged!

Crystal Wilkerson's Life Planner Sneak Peek #12

Bring on the Cold Weather…

As the weather has gotten colder, my kids have been spending more time indoors. One of our favorite things to do on those cold, dark nights is to pop some popcorn, make a warm drink, snuggle up together on the couch & watch a family-friendly movie together. I have loved having Netflix available for just those occasions!  Below are some of the movies we’ve been enjoying this month on Netflix…

These are a few of our favorite drink concoctions for those cold winter nights…

 - Hot Water with Honey, Lemon, & Cinnamon

- Hot Cocoa with a Scoop of Vanilla Ice-cream (if you’ve never tried this, you’re missing out!!)

- Warm Milk or Hot Cocoa with Flavored Cream like the ones below…

Thoughts on November’s Quote: There’s nothing like a good dose of gratitude to gain perspective on life & to realize it’s not so bad after all. Cultivating the habit of gratitude is one of the single most important things you can do.

Recently, I’ve been using my iPhone to record every grateful thought that comes into my mind. This has helped me realize two things: first, there is a never-ending list of things to be grateful for, and second, the things that you focus on multiply. As my focus has been on gratitude, I’ve not only recognized the daily things that I take for granted, but I’ve also had happy thoughts & memories come back to me from years past…both have been a blessing to me.

Have you ever tried a gratitude challenge? If so, I’d love to hear about it. If not, feel free to use my idea above or you can check out my thirty-day gratitude challenge HERE.

My 2015 Life Planner – Sneak Peek #10…

There’s a new UPDATE to the launch of my Life Planner…read about it HERE.

Thoughts on October’s Quote: This quote has two meanings for me…

First, our thoughts control our circumstances more than we realize. It’s easy to blame everyone but ourselves for the situations we find ourselves in. Being a “victim” takes a lot less effort than being a “creator”. However, when we choose higher thoughts, we find that our circumstances improve also.

Second, we can’t choose everything that happens to us, but we can choose our attitude about it. There are so many examples of people who, by no fault of their own, find themselves in the worst of circumstances. And yet, they let those circumstances shape them into a better human being. Anne Frank & Viktor Frankl are famous for this very reason.

Viktor Frankl, in his book, “Man’s Search for Meaning” said he survived the Holocaust by finding personal meaning in the experience, which gave him the will to live through it. Through his research, he also found a strong relationship between “meaninglessness” and criminal behaviors, addictions and depression.

I find it so interesting that it is not the outward circumstances that influence our happiness, but rather the inner thoughts that run through our minds.
