Wow! I was beginning to think that we were never, ever, ever getting back together (I sound just like Taylor Swift as I am sing this to myself. No really, just trust me on this, I do.) It has been waaaay too long since my last post and I have missed you sooooo much. Let’s never be apart that long again, ok? Deal? Let’s just say as a newbie blogger, I wasn’t prepared for the disruption that December presented to my regularly scheduled routine. Now I see why pro bloggers talk about planning out your blog post calendar. Yes, that is a good idea. I am doing that this year. On that note, let’s talk of calendars, organizing, goal setting and the awesome opportunity for a fresh start that is the month of January
My friend, Sage Grayson has an amazingly excellent 2015 planner that I am loving. Thank you, Sage! This is a fabulous way to reflect on 2014 and an inspiring, fun and adorable way to organize my goals, schedule and routines for 2015. Since the beginning of the year is a great time to hit the reset button and make decisions about how I want my life to look and what it will take to get from here (the cookies and eggnog induced stupor that is the end of December and first few days of January) to there (a year full of health, happiness and abundance), I thought it would be fun to look at the Edited Year 2015 Planner and do some of the exercises together.
If you don’t know Sage yet, she has a passion for helping driven, motivated women edit their lives by tweaking their habits, routines and mindsets so they can find balance and happiness at work and home. She is great at what she does! She is a life editor/coach with a gift for pinpointing the adjustments that women need to make to achieve their goals and live life on purpose. Her philosophy is that you don’t need a whole new life, you just need to make small, manageable edits along the way to create a life you love.
An outline of Sage’s approach to making big changes through mini adjustments
Look at what is already working in your life. These parts of your life provide a stable foundation to build on.
Whether it is a person, a habit or a situation you have to give it the boot, so it doesn’t take up space that could be occupied by good stuff. Make room, step aside, awesome people and experiences coming through.
Now that you cleared out the junk, you have space and energy for improvements. You can focus on creating your dream job, attracting a great partner, getting healthy or whatever other wonderfulness you desire.
If your life isn’t running smoothly you may need to take some time to rearrange the pieces and make your schedule work for you.
This is where you make space for rest, recharging and me time so you have the energy to kick butt and execute your Big Plans.
This is so key! Sage reminds us that life editing is an ongoing process. Life changes, people change, needs and wants change, so we have to take time to evaluate and continue to tweak things as we go along.
I love this planner because it has bright, fun worksheets where you can reflect on what worked and what didn’t in 2014 as a foundation for goal setting and planning in 2015.
I wanted more than just a calendar this year, I wanted a place to declare my big dreams for 2015 and a way to organize my to do list so I can really make things happen. This is no joke, people.

What about you? What fabulously cool stuff are you working on in 2015? Tell me, tell me!
Now that you know the what, this planner helps you figure out the how in so many creative ways, look at all these pretty pages of monthly, weekly and daily planning, to do lists, life edits and priorities…
I just love it because it is a constant reminder that you aren’t doing things “wrong” you are just making adjustments and figuring out the “right” answers for You, for Right Now. It takes the fear of failure right out of the equation and puts the fun back in setting big goals and making them a reality.
Sage also makes space in the planner for a reflection on what’s working and what needs more adjustment on a monthly and quarterly basis. It really gives you the sense that you have a life coach helping you organize your life, time and energy to create more of what you want in your life.
But here is what makes it really stand out…drum roll please…Sage gives you a free, 1 hour quarterly review strategy call as a thank you for buying the planner. Seriously though, who does that? She offers 4 hours of coaching with the purchase of a $12 planner! Yep, that is pretty amazing. I am constantly impressed with how generous Sage is with her time and her products. She is such a great resource for anyone looking to bring more happiness, productivity and balance to her life.
Sage believes in abundance and gratitude and it is so great to know her. I hope you look at this planner and love it and use it to create a life more awesome. And no, Sage didn’t pay me to say this stuff, it is just how I feel
