I want to thank you for being faithful here to me and to my blog. I’ve been praying about what God would have me write to you here on the blog, and I’ve been conflicted. As you know, this past week I launched Purposeful Planning on Patreon, and I introduced a monthly challenge for the month of January on the topic of Self-Care. During the time, I was working on this content and printable resources for Patreon, I struggled with knowing what I should post here on my blog. I knew that I wanted to continue here as well, but I didn’t know what I should be posting about. I also didn’t know how to make those printable resources available to you also in a way that made sense.
Now, I think I have my answer. I will be closing my Patreon account in a few weeks and transferring all of that content over here to my blog. I want it to be available to as many women as possible. My whole belief and intent with launching Patreon was to help women to be more intentional and purposeful in planning their lives. Patreon was a great tool for doing that, and it simplified things for me big time, but it didn’t make sense for me to have two separate tools for posting content on the web – Patreon and my blog. So now, I am consolidating the two into one and sticking with what I know.
I love the vision that God has given me for Purposeful Planning! I would eventually love to purchase a domain name and rename this blog, as I believe most of what I’m posting here does fall into that “Purposeful Planning” category anyway. It’s just who I am. That is my goal and something I will be working towards in the near future.
So… with all of that said – we are about to begin a Self-Care Challenge here on the blog! There are SO many different aspects of this that we will cover… Time Management and
Prioritizing our Time for what’s most important to us,
Determining our Core Values,
Discovering our Passions – what really fulfills us personally,
How to Care for our Physical Health,
How to Care of our Emotional & Mental Health, and
How to Care for our Spiritual Health & Well-Being as well!
Plus, we’ll cover several topics in between like how to “give ourselves permission to take time for self-care”, the “mama-guilt” we face, and overcoming fears that hold us back from doing things that we love to do.
I’ve created a Printable Task List for the month. Some things on the list are actual tasks that will require you to take the time to do or make a plan to do them at some point. Others are more of an internal decision for you to make and easy to check off the list when you are ready.
There is also a Facebook group available, and I would love for you to join us there! I really want us to be able to use this group to discuss the topics and resources more in depth so you can really make this all work for you and apply it to your own lives!
