simple analogies + complex feelings

simple analogies

clean page

complex feelings

confused
in the dark
trying to listen
sad
not ready to let go

I try to face the new year as social media would like me to: inspired, energized, ready to kick butt.
But how do you prepare for God's story?
His narrative?

I've spent the past eighteen years of my life training. I've spent hours doing school, dancing, studying, playing music, singing, acting, talking, listening, learning.
Learning learning learning.

I've learned that my job is to listen.

Yet I'm told to plan this blank page of a year.
Take control.
Make my dreams happen.
Run ahead at full force.

Listen?
Wait?

Those are horrible resolutions.

but I will quiet my planner self.
I will breathe in and find rest.
and I will wait.

I will wait for Him to make sense of these simple analogies + complex feelings

inside my planner


I love looking at how other people stay sane. Mainly, I love admiring organization.
I loveeeee lists.
I lovvveee organization.
And I loveeee my planner,
Well, the feeling I get from using my planner. The planner itself is kinda meh, although I've grown to love it.

 This is the outside. It's a flexible plastic, which is great because it's very durable and easy to wipe stuff of off. Not that I ever spill anything or anything...
I drew on it with a gold paint pen, to jazz up the black cover. I sorta wish I drew something more interesting, but I also like the simplicity of it.


The inside is the neat version of my life. It looks full and clean and organized. And my life is full and crazy and complicated. Yet this planner is so helpful.
It's the other half of my brain most days.


I write quotes on the top of each week, and use them like a weekly moto. I also keep a little tab on my current week so I can flip to it easily.
I write my classes and anything else going on, but I don't use it for assignments. (I keep those on separate assignment sheets in the subject notebook/folder)
The planner has a month-at-a-glance feature that I try to use for blogging, but I'm not always full of inspiration at the beginning of the month soooooooo.

And that's about it! Let me know how/if you use a planner in the comments below!
