One of the things I try to live by is to never “wish my time away” – you know, when you say to yourself, “if I just make it through this month…” “I wish it was the end of the semester…” or “Is it the weekend yet?” Just a couple of those and suddenly you wonder where the last year went. One of the hardest things for me to do is to stay in the present and soak in what’s going on around me. Part of that is this Instagram problem I’ve developed (thanks, #bulletjournaljunkies), but that’s another story. Let’s talk about my December setup.
One area where that completely fails is around the 27th of every month and suddenly the month doesn’t matter because it means I CAN SET UP NEXT MONTH! YES! — and suddenly I’ve been in December for all of Thanksgiving weekend. Oops.
At the end of the month I look through the past month and assess what I want to keep, start, or stop doing to create a system that will work for what I need this month. From that review, I’ve learned a few things before setting up my December month.
So let’s set this up.
My mother in law saw these washi tapes and just had to give them to me – and now that it’s appropriate to be putting up Christmasy things… here they are.
What are the things you’re bringing into December? Anything else I should try? Happy December!
