As part of my ongoing effort to Mark Time Well, I've become a planner person this year. Recently, I transitioned to a Happy Planner
(more on that later) and have been creating some inserts that I'd love to share with others. I've shared the free June 2016 calendar and today, I want to share my Sweet, Sweet Summertime insert.
I have been thinking of this as a Bucket List, and I suppose it is. But it's not filled with spectacular events or even out-of-the-ordinary outings or activities. Really, this is a way to remember and make a bit more special things that my family will already be doing this Summer. I've found that just taking time to recognize and mark, literally, the GIFT inherent in our ordinary, every-day has the wonderful side effect of bring me more satisfaction and happiness. I feel thankful. As we pick raspberries in the garden or run through the sprinkler or play hopscotch this summer, just like we do every summer, the plan is to write down the date and take a moment to mark this time with gratitude and recognize the privilege of experiencing these things. (You can see in the pic that we had some summer fun already yesterday!).
If that sounds like a good plan to you, too, please feel free to download this list here.
