These past couple weeks have been quite busy so, thank you to all of you who continue to find new things to read on my blog! Make no mistake, however, I have been keeping busy finding new things to love this month! My goals have also been keeping me on track! More on that though, when the month ends!
Habits I am loving:
I’ve never been great at developing habits and keeping them around. I do think, though, I have nailed these and they will be sticking around.
I have always keep a journal off and on. I definitely miss it when I am letting life get in the way. More importantly, this month, I recognized that even when life is busy, there is never too much craziness to identify what I am thankful for. The best part is often times, it leads me to open up more and continue to write. Overall, having gratitude be the topic each and every day can provide a healthy mind.
-Hello Morning Devotional-
Along with my journal, I often seem to push aside time for devotion and time with my dude Jesus. However, Hello Mornings created a 3 minute morning routine that has been instrumental on getting me back on track. I would highly recommend checking them out here if Jesus is also your dude and you struggle with finding time to devotion.
-Stretching in Silence-
Let me just put emphasis on the silence part. It honestly has taken me so long to slow myself down in the morning, where I simply enjoy the silence. Let be even more honest, the stretching part has taken me even longer to create a habit out of. Stretching in silence has given me balance, awakening and even more importantly, self-awareness.
Listens I am loving:
As many of you know, I have a pretty hefty commute of an hour and well, there is only so much Pandora and radio that gets me fueled for my day. Podcasts have rapidly become a daily commute favorite and I truly feel so much more fulfilled.
-The Secrets to Success-
Dr. Eric Thomas is a renowned motivational speaker, author and Michigan resident that came from nothing to something with hard work, dedication and perseverance. His podcast, YouTube and Pandora stations have changed my way of thinking and the way I perceive my days of past and things to come.
-The Productive Woman-
Laura McClellan is a fantastic podcast host with so much advice, and guest speakers with wonderful topics, that I have gone back and binge watched since she started her show. She is light hearted, candid and honest about the things we, as women, really NEED to hear. P.S. She also hosts a Facebook group titled: The Productive Woman Community.
Blogs I am loving:
We all know by now that I am no stranger to binging on some blog reading. Lately, I have been trying not to be on my phone so much, so with that, comes a shorter list of binge worthy blogs. Let me make known that this is the only reason why.
-Career Girl Daily-
I can’t even remember how I stumbled upon this gem but it has me binge reading! There is a wide array of topics, tips and tricks to keep me trying or reading something new!
-Liz Marie Blog-
I have her on repeat consistently. She is my farmhouse inspo and her stories are always amazing! She is a Michigan gal, which is probably the number one reason why I adore her. Liz and her husband truly have a special farmhome.
Planner Things I am loving:
My planner is probably my most treasured item. I have been a planner girl since I started doodling. My current obsession is my happy planner (yep, I hopped on that bandwagon-and you should too!) and all things planner related, especially free printables.
-Monica Marvels Printables Facebook Group-
She is a wizard that has decided to share her planner obsessed capabilities with the planner community here. There are also some other fabulous planner girl creators that post inspiration and printables. Shout to my girl Gretchen for adding me to this group. She is always my best enabler.
Also enabled by Gretchen, Victoria has become my go to for all things free printables. Because she does this for free, she does have a cute little coffee supply button that you can donate whatever you would like (if anything) to the caffeine that supplies her creativity for the printables. Ha!
I hope that as I continue to share my current loves, that it will inspire you to either recognize what you are loving this month or find some new ones through my recommendations!
