Hi, I’m Marie!
Isn’t this the place most people put their hobbies, favorite foods, and how they “hate talking about themselves”? Telling you my favorite food doesn’t explain who I am as a person, or why I started this blog . Let’s skip the pleasantries and jump in head first, you know… the nitty gritty.
I will give you the basics of who I am in a nutshell here though, this way you get the gist. I’m a busy mother of two, wife, a full-time business student, and whatever else I’m elected to be on a given day.
I sometimes wonder how I manage to get things done without losing my sanity. Those around me may disagree… about my sanity… but that’s beside the point. To be quite honest though, that’s not how things used to be.
I used to find myself overwhelmed, and behind on everything. As time went on the workload began to grow and this only made me procrastinate even more. I actually considered myself the queen of excuses and procrastination, great combo, right?
Eventually I began giving up on everyday tasks, my goals, and quite honestly… myself.
People started catching on to my self proclaimed moniker, you know, Queen of Procrastination. They didn’t really have any choice but to notice, because my bad habits were effecting them, I mean who wouldn’t notice their lack of clean clothes and unpaid bills.
As much as I lectured my kids about getting their chores and homework done, I knew it was time to take a look in that mirror (covered in toothpaste). No wonder my kids weren’t getting their sh** done, I’m their role model. I wanted to be the best version of myself for my family. So, I wiped that toothpaste off the mirror and started some self evaluation! I actually wrote out my goals, and a plan… yep, me!
I began by writing out my daily, weekly, and monthly plans in my trusty planner I got from Target.. because where else would I go to get a planner?! Things started out okay, but eventually my planner wasn’t working for me. I needed more space to write specific information, and quite honestly something that wasn’t so cookie cutter. So, I set out for something that was better suited for me.
I seen a few standard journals, I’ll pass, apps for productivity, pass, and productivity rituals that were practically witchcraft to me… I mean literally you wold have to cast a spell on me for some of those crazy things to work. If I can’t even get my own sh** done daily what makes you think adding in meditation for 2 hours, and goat yoga will help me!?
