Vlogmas week 1 Decoration and planning
This month time flies like crazy. I know it is December and most of the people are in the holiday rush to do all the shopping and present as soon as possible. If you are having kids I can totally understand it. Thinking about what to gift kids nowadays is way too hard. Sometimes I am thinking what will they do if they didn't have so many resources as they have these days.
Maybe that speaks only my nostalgia from 90-ties. We have so much fun and we were so creative. I think we didn't take too much maintenance. We were happy with what we had. The first of November is just too early for Christmas decorations. I apologize if I have offended you, I know there are people who can't wait to take down Halloween to decore after the 31st of October and put Christmas decore. But what has happened with autumn!?
Please at least wait until the 1st of December, but my Christmas tree will wait until the 24th of December. That tradition momently I don't have the intention to change at the moment. So, as the first Vlogmas of 2021, I have decided to decore my room and only my room.
I wasn't a much of the Christmas person, but this year I have some kind of desire to wake up my Christmas spirit. I think the bedroom/ office is decored with just the right amount of decorations. This year am obsessed with gnomes I think they are so cute.
Because is still the beginning of the month I like to do intuitive and regular planning ( on and off the paper). I don't know how long you are with me on this creator journey. But I have a lot of hobbies as well as trying new things. Last 6 months I have been learning about tarot and I see it as my guide to be a better version of myself, that is why I have started with intuitive planning first. It helps me to be more aware of my lessons and see things that sometimes I miss. Then when you go into retrospection after some event you get an AH-A moment. For me tarot is like some love writing down the journal, that's who I see it. This is the same but a little bit different, but you need to be open-minded and less in your head about taboo themes like this.
After, intuitive planning it's time for some regular planning and putting things into your calendar. I am aware that digital planning is not so popular as I have maybe hoped that would be. At the end of the day, everyone should build the system for their unique lifestyle. If you are thinking of digital planning. I will suggest that to invest in a tablet and a pencil so you don't lose that sense of writing things down. I only have an iPad and an Apple Pencil and I am obsessed with the scrabble feature. Basically, as you are writing things down on the screen of your iPad the pencil is converting that into text. How cool is that, I love technology!

Loved reading this article, Marcela! I didn't know you can do that with Apple pencil. Sounds so amazing! Thank you for sharing. I'm going to try it for sure. But I always love writing down my plans or the things I want to do. Thank you for sharing this post.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying reading this article. Yes, nowadays technology is amazing. I love writing but more and more I am gravitating to write on iPad with Apple Pencil
