A Fresh Idea On Organizing Your Life
As women, we are always trying to stay organized. And if you're a mother--you know exactly what I mean. Being organized and staying that way is not easy. I've come to know a lot of different women and how they plan.
Take a look at some of these planning types and see if you can identify yourself with one of these women:
The Task Manager Girl:
Task manager girls love to try using, tote-and-go planners. These planners work for a little while, but soon will find it unfulfilling. They are not conducive for managing a home, and will not keep a woman inspired, for their sole purpose is just corralling life's tasks.
The Post-it Note Girl:
We can see how this isn't effective! Sticky notes stuck everywhere to remember things we must do, only to neglect the whole
woman. Some women solely use them, others use them along with the task manager above. They stick them on their fridge, their mirrors, you name it. This method will stunt your growth to being a better you; again, by only following and trying to remember all of the tasks in life.
There are some who live by just a calendar and fill it all up until every square of their life is full. Using different colored pencils to coordinate everyone's schedule and using the family calendar as their means to live by. This might be a good way to keep all the kid's games and practices organized, but there is more to life; more to you as a woman, a mother, and a wife.
Lists a mile long of all and only their to-dos...and then forget where they put them. Women tend to love lists, because they find crossing tasks off after completion, exhilarating! But make no mistake, you are selling yourself short, even if you're good at completing tasks.
You know what all of these planning types have in common?
They only follow life's tasks.
These planning methods will never push you to be all you can be. You were meant to use all of you; not just a portion.
You were created to be all you can be: the best mother, the best wife, the best, you! And you simply cannot be a woman living on purpose, following your dreams, and be a visionary for your life following just tasks.
We are meant to live for so much more!
If you are a mother, I don't mean that our mothering is not fulfilling in its own right, because it most definitely, is; and to survive, we make lists run by our tasks, and try to be super moms as best we can. But basically what's really happening, is that unfortunately, we are leaving our motherhood and our lives to chance; we don't want to make this mistake.
We need to create the life we want to live and living a life on purpose and joy needs to be done with intent.
We should be organized, invigorated by our personal goals and dreams, and living life to the fullest. We were meant for more than following tasks, chores, and being our children's chauffeurs. And if we don't take the time to slow down and script our lives we vision...we will always be unsatisfied because all other methods of trying to be organized will ultimately fail.
The neglect of not taking the reins of our personal growth and lives will come to surface at some point; don't let that happen to you!

This method is where you are setting monthly goals every month. Instead of just writing down all of your to-dos...be thinking about everything that encompasses your motherhood and womanhood and your family.
