I have to laugh at myself at how often I change gears. I used to think this was a bad thing. Look at how fickle I am! Good grief. Now, I realize it’s simply my pivoting to things that might work and away from things that clearly aren’t working for me.
The latest pivot is around planners. I watched this great video about planners from the “How to ADHD” channel on YouTube. It’s a great channel – one of my favorites.
I was using the Christian Planner, which I still actually do love. I plotted out a verse a day (which I wanted to post daily here too, but stopped) and started using it for my daily routines, to-do’s, brain-dumps, sermon notes, and ALL the things. There were two problems with this.
- The binding wasn’t meant for that kind of abuse. Probably should have gotten the spiral bound.
- It’s a little heavy to tote around everywhere.
- It’s really pretty and artfully done. My daily grind is messy, scribbled, and covered in post-its! And I want it to be pretty and keepsake-y!
I’m thinking about getting another one to simply use as a journal – perhaps the Faith & Focus? I’m not 100% decided on that direction yet. Although the $9.99 sale on the 2022 planner is attractive!

For my daily grind, I found a simple Blue Sky calendar and target and loaded it up. It’s a hot mess and that’s ok! It’s not a journal. I’m not going to keep it forever. It’s just to help me process time. I even grabbed a highlighter and blocked out Mondays so I can more easily benchmark the weeks.
Moving forward, I might pivot again. I’m at peace with this. After all, the only thing in this universe that doesn’t change is God. That brings me great peace!
