Once I started putting everything into compartments, I was able to take a breath and see that it was all doable as I saw that it spread out over time. No wonder I felt the need to organize my life into sections to make it less overwhelming.
Thus, the different calendars. I wanted to see everything laid out for the month, but then I saw the need to start seeing just a week at a time.
As I became more organized with my events, I then wanted to start organizing the different subjects in my life. To Do for the week, To Do for the month, To Do for the year… grocery lists, meal planning, road trips, house upkeep, memories to record, movies I wanted to see, books I want to read.. and the list goes on.
It was so cathartic for me to organize everything that was going on in my life, and I found that as I recorded everything, my life became less overwhelming…
