Passion Planning: CELBANPrep 2018- Part II

Ok, Passion Planners!

Have you had the kind of week I have had? It is already Thursday and I am wondering where all my lofty plans and goals for this week went! It is not that I have not been productive! I have been. Each day I have accomplished so  much. But, what about my goals? (One of mine was to write this two days ago!:)

That is what I love about the Passion Planner; it embodies self-compassion. It reminds me of the quote from Anne of Green Gables, a famous Canadian story. In it Anne says,

“It is nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it.”

Passion Planning: CELBANPrep 2018

Dear Friends,

This morning I set out to plan the next two  months, before the release of CELBANPrep 2018 and all the other things that have been peculating in my being. I went to Facebook and found this:

FB-11-14-17

My heart was completely filled as I began my day. I took out my notebooks, my planner, plain paper, pencils and other various items. And then I realized something. I am planning for 2018!

I am planning for 2018!

It has been several years since I actually had a glimmer of hope into the vastness of the future; and, usually I start my planning for the new year on January first! I love getting out my new wall calendar, and day planner and planning away. I am ready for it. But today, November 14, I didn’t have what I needed! 2018 is two months away!

► Passion Planning with Kim!

Dear Friends,

Yesterday I shared with you the e-mail that inspired the Dear Kim Sessions. I wrote, ” I don’t know how it will go… but it is an idea, a way to connect with IENs, like you suggested” based on this blog.

Today I spent much of my day, at a cafe, working on my goals for the 2016 year, figuring out how to integrate my New Years Resolution of creating 6 new YouTube Channels, excited to use my Passion Planner.
