I think being in love with life is a key to Eternal Youth

- Doug Hutchison

I was in the first year of college when I came across the Happy Planner. I had just
started brush lettering and journaling and made it a part of my daily planning. That’s when I
came across The Happy Planner. Initially it was just a pretty journal which I wanted to buy.
Since it was not available in India, I had to wait for my sister to send it from the States. I was
super excited when I received it and I couldn’t wait to start planning in it… but things changed
when I understood the real meaning behind the planner company and realized it’s moto –
Planning a happy life. It inspired to another level and since then I have been dreaming of
becoming a part of the Happy Planner Community.

Not all those who wander, are lost!

New Year New Me or maybe every day is a new me. I’m so excited for this year because I get
to plan with my Happy Planners. #TheHappyPlanner​

May is my birthday month and obviously I’m super excited for it ( Yes! Even in this
lockdown… I know you’re thinking how’s it possible… but I guess that’s me.) I took the month
layout of May to plan a self-care month. I’m so grateful for all the things that I can do during this
time.

Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it - because it does.

Oh Happy Everyday Planner Companion – Classic by The Happy Planner is an
amazing addition to my collection. I love all the accessories in it. The envelopes are super cute
and every day I write one thing I’m grateful for keep it in them. It includes a half sheet paper pad
which is great for writing down your brilliant ideas. The best thing about it is the charm bracelet
which is a great reminder that every day is a great day.

You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of
the world's problems at once but don't ever underestimate the importance you can have because
history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.

- Michelle Obama

“Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring to change a person’s life.”

– Jackie Chan

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.”

– Princess Diana

“Because that’s what kindness is. It’s not doing something for someone else because they can’t, but because you can.”

Believe you can and you're halfway there.

Self-care is an important activity in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and
physical health. I want to focus on self-care this month, so I made myself a self-care challenge!
Each day I’m going to complete an easy task that will leave me happy and less stressed. Always
remember that taking time to rest is productive.

Start each day with a grateful heart and every day is going to be a great day.
Throwback to the first year of college when I only had one planner and one sticker book and I
used to carefully space my stickers so as to save them.

Planning has always been a part of my life. The modes and stationary might have changed
but the basic structure still remains the same. I’m super excited when it comes to making lists
and checking off tasks… I love the Happy Planner sticker books as they have a sense of
positivity no matter what the theme is. This Planner Babe accessory book is great as it includes
both sticky notes and stickers.

I was inspired by Natalie Bell to share my name pages in my planners for this year!✨ I
used a Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen to letter my name in my planner! I’m grateful for all
these planners.

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”

– Charles Spurgeon

I think that’s what 2020 should be about. 2020 needs to be “the year of the self”. I have committed
to making this year about no one but myself. I have elected to focus a large part of my time
improving the quality of my life and the way that I think about myself. I am beautiful. Just like you.
We all are beautiful and special.
So, here’s the part where I challenge you to relearn the way that you think of yourself and the world
around you. Learn to love all those little things about yourself. Feel good about yourself. And I don’t
just mean to learn to love yourself on the outside. Learn to love that person within you that’s waiting
to burst out and greet the world. Smile. You deserve it. Just take it one step at a time and remember
that today’s going to be a great day. Because every day is a great day.

What you are thinking now is creating your future life. You create your life with your
thoughts. Because you are always thinking, you are always creating. What you think about the
most or focus on the most, is what will appear as your life.

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.

- Oprah Winfrey

Just breathe.!

Being grateful for all that we have in life is one of the keys to true happiness. By
recognizing all of the wonderful things we have to be appreciative for, rather than dwelling on
the negative, often those ‘not so wonderful’ things don’t seem so bad after all.

For me, the only things of interest are those linked to the heart
