Ideas for Resetting Your Memory Planner
How long can you say Happy New Year? It’s just the middle of the month and to me it is still a fresh new year. It’s a fresh start. It’s a reset.
Reset is just what today’s post is all about. Resetting Your Memory Planner. There are just a few ideas I wanted to share with you as I opened up this fresh Storyline Chapters Planner, looked at not only one blank page, but six months of blank pages, and started to reset the new year with a brand new beginning.
For one thing, since the new year started late in the week, it created an opportunity to just get creative with the very first page. Here is the idea: treat your planner page like a scrapbook page and layer away. It was a chance to just have some creative fun and in the doing make lots of layers. More on that in a moment.
Another way you can reset your planner is stick to a color scheme. I do this sort of off and on in previous Memory Planners. I was a bit more intentional this time. It felt even more necessary as the left side was a ‘scrapbook’ like page, and I wanted it to really connect to the right side page. I chose to pull together any hues of pink and some of that beige sort of color. Sticking to a color scheme creates a cohesive page. I feel like that mission was accomplished right here.
Back to the layers, I made several here on this first page. First I die cut one of my photos in a circle. I made a flap for the circle and then created a journal space underneath the first photo. On that DIY journal spot was another way I am resetting my Memory Planner this year. I wrote my personal ambitions. How I want to show up daily. While not a big resolutions girl, I am an ambitions and goals and motivation girl. I chose things I am doing everyday and want to remember throughout the whole year. Yet another way to reset your Memory Planner for the New Year.
But wait, there’s more…I crafted a larger flapped layer that all the photos were layered on. Under that flap I made a pocket. In the pocket are Storyline Chapters Tags. These tags hold journaling about my One Word for the year, goals for my family, and I even started a bucket list. This can be a great way throughout the year to even reset your Memory Planner monthly, writing down the things. Writing down the ideas. Writing down what you want to do with this one precious life and tuck it away in a pocket page.
Here is my number one advice for resetting your Memory Planner: write. it. down. What does Bob Goff say about this? “If you aren’t super intentional about writing down the things, you’ll miss the best stories of your life. These fleeting memories.” Ain’t it the truth! Write it down. Reset your planner. Tell your story.
