Welcome to the Planners 2021!!

Welcome to the Planners 2021!!
This year is going to end soon with the beginning of a brand new year. People like me got another chance to do experiments with their planners. This year(2020) I had decided to use a planner designed by me according to my needs. It was a really fun, rustic, and relaxing experience. Although I faced some issues due to lack of time. So I decided to go back and start using planners available in the market. I thought it is the best rustic way for me to deal with the next year.

On the other hand, the Internet is flooded with a variety of such planners. You can even gift them to those who like stationery products and are fond of this planner system. I know it is costly, but just divide the total amount by 12, to get the monthly expenditure of your planner. If you still think it's not economical then you can always go for a handmade planner. Click here for a free course about journaling that includes how to set up your own bullet journal/planner.

Let's have a look at some of the famous Planner 2021 available:

  • Alicia Souza - The 2021 Ultimate Planner & Pocket Planner: I have used the previous versions of this planner. One thing which I can predict, with just my experience only, is that it will always motivate you to open this planner. The quality, design, and everything is pretty tempting. It has its undated version too as you can see below.

December 2020 : Bullet Journal Cover

December 2020 : Bullet Journal Cover
Hello! This is my December 2020 Bullet Journal Cover. Due to some time constraints, I prefer this simple one. Although after finishing, it is looking very cool just like this month. I don't know what I liked more: Its combination of colors and black or its simplicity. It has falling leaves plus growing ones too. 

For this month, I have this theme: "Action>Words". It is the end of the year. We have to start preparing for the next year. So its time for action rather than just using words. We have to lay foundation of next year to get maximum from it. To know more about this theme system click here.

The Hidden Thorns

Hello everyone! Today I am going to share a short story with you...

It was a beautiful day. I decided to give her a special surprise. What could be better than a perfect bouquet of roses? So I bought it, removed all the thorns, packed it beautifully, and sprinkled her favorite fragrance on it. I knew that she would start jumping after having this surprise and would definitely add those flowers in her project whose final presentation was on that day itself. That project was very important for her. I was well prepared and made very clear instructions to the courier person.

Lockdown Lessons !!

Well, I don't know when will this lockdown be lifted completely. But staying in our homes have made me realized a few things which I would like to share with you :
  • I have learned a new meaning of family👨‍👩‍👧‍👦. I mean Living with them 24*7 inside one house, with all having one common agenda of staying safe, have made me understand their perspective better. Now I know there is no prominent member of a family. Each member is important in their own way and has a perfect role here which cannot be interchanged with others.
  • Another important thing I have realized is that the most important part of a house is the Kitchen. Yes !! It contains real treasures🎇🎇. And there is no limit to exploring it. You can try making new dishes every day through the internet or any other source, and still, there will be so many new recipes left on this planet. It will never be over. But the fun part is that now I feel Like a Kitchen King  - Ready to fight hunger🤴.

Mother - A living Goddess

Every year we celebrate Mother's day on the second Sunday of May. Mothers 👩‍👧‍👦are the most special person in our lives.

 I was wondering that in our whole lifetime, we see many goddesses in our mothers. We just don't realize this and take her for granted. Here I have names of few goddesses ( according to Hindu mythology ) that we see commonly in our mums:
  • Saraswati ( symbol of knowledge ): Our first teacher is our mother🤱. She taught 📝us when we were just newborns. She will be the one who will always try to teach you despite of your age.

Golden anniversary of Earth day

Since 1970, Earth day🌏 is being celebrated every year on 22nd April. So now in 2020, it is 🎇Golden anniversary🎊 for Earth Day. 


Our nature has its own way of restoring balance between its every components. We humans consider ourselves superior than other components and try to rule over them😓. As a consequence, we are locked up inside our homes.

Fireflies

Don't you think fireflies are magical creatures.They can glow 🌟on their own. They don't need battery 🔋or anything. Darkness is never an issue for them. This is called being self dependent😎.


When I was a child, I used to think that if they can glow then it means that they are having any heat or 💡electricity source. And going near them will burn us😅. Now I know that this light is their signal for communication. So may be as a child I used to scare them and through light they used to shout for help😁.

The Story of my HAIRFALL

One of the various side effects of adulting is hair fall😞. Earlier I used to take this as a normal thing, but then slowly this ignorance changed everything.
 But the good thing is that I finally realised what is good for me and my hairs😌. And now I am at a better condition and more satisfied.

Hope

Hope is a desire for a particular thing to happen.It is like a ray of light in the dark night.  It is a sign of optimism😇. Having hope is like having a charged battery which will push you for a longer period towards your goals. This charged battery 🔋can result into either something constructive or something destructive.

Too much of anything is always bad. When you hope a lot of things then there is 100% chance that you may fail and the result can push you away in a land of strange feelings😨.

Reflection

I was wondering about types of reflection🌗 we see in our day to day lives.Then I found one beautiful example of reflection- children👧👦.



Unlocking Lockdown

Lockdown is the present need of  the world. But some people call it house arrest and give it a total negative shade. Well it is negative  to some extent. Living full day inside our home 🏡 with bunch of few people who we call a family👪 where everyone has a different frequency.One simple task will become debatable.It is not that we lack understanding , but its like we don't want to understand each other anymore may be because we have found some other people who understands us better but unluckily they are also trapped in their house arrest ⛓.

Right APPROACH towards solving your problems

Sometimes we get very confused.Either there are many options or no option. Either we have to start something fresh or just need a fresh start of something old.We spend days and days in doing nothing. Then we start getting irritated on even small things. We even try asking for help from everyone and sometimes this makes things worst.

The road not taken

This was the poem by Robert Frost.
  Its a very lovely piece. I think author was trying to tell how one decision can change your whole life and the maximum chances are that you can't change that decision after making it.

Deal with PROCRASTINATION

Procrastinate means ( as in dictionary) to be slow or late about doing things that should be done earlier. In my opinion , it is a deadly virus which spreads very fastly into your mind and once you got infected your happy blood cells starts decreasing at a very alarming rate. It can even lead you to miss many great opportunities. Such failures will ultimately make you depressed.

Women's Day

People call it a women's Day to celebrate independence and empowerment  of women. But are women really independent and empowered ?? Does a woman need a man to tell her that she is independent??...There are many such questions..

Importance of GOAl in Life

Life without goal means just breathing oxygen in and carbon dioxide out... Or like a black and white movie to which GOAL adds colours.
There is this special quote by Abraham Lincoln - " Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will Spend the first four sharpening the axe. " In our case chopping down trees means living and sharpening the axe means to increase your creativity for which you should have some kind of aim.
