Having too many "things to do" can be confusing and frustrating at times. It makes you feel like not wanting to start anything because you don’t know where or how to begin. Or you end up accomplishing the less important tasks over the important ones. That’s how having a planner solves your dilemma. As for me, I have this favorite planner which I have been using consistently over the years! Wanna know what it is? It’s the Belle de Jour Power Planner for kikay bellas like me! :D

For five years now, BDJ has never failed to surprise me with new and exciting features. Aside from helping me organize my daily, weekly, monthly and yearly activities, BDJ helps me discover myself and encourages me to achieve my dreams. With the goals section, I can set my vision statement and enumerate my objectives for the year. There’s also a part where I can create my dream board. It’s really fun cutting out pictures that symbolize my aspirations in life! Haha! There’s a health checklist to remind me of check-ups. There’s even a menstrual tracker and other exciting tools varying every year. Another thing that I also like about BDJ planner are the beauty tips and articles for monthly read. Not to mention the exciting discount coupons from the best brands in our country! And there’s actually a whole lot more! Better see it for yourself. ;)

Belle de Jour is more than just a planner. It’s a community. BDJ has a lot of events and activities in store for the bellas for the whole year. I get to attend an event once entitled FEARS TO FIERCE and it was really fun! :)
BDJ is one of the things that I look forward to whenever the year ends because it's my time to purchase a new planner and get to see its new design and features. :D

How about you? Do you have a favorite planner, too? Try the Belle de Jour Power Planner, so you too can experience what I'm talking about! ;)

As we start our year, it is important that we take some time to pause for a while, look back at what happened in our previous year, reflect upon our experiences, internalize on what we have learned and think about what improvements to be done this year. Sometimes, with our busy schedule and with overwork we tend to be stressed-out. A moment of silence will allow us to freshen up and start anew.

I myself took that time of reflection. I even listed down the highlights of my previous year and wrote down the things that I learned. 2014 had taught me many ideas and realizations. And I'm sharing with you some of them. One great principle that I learned last year was the importance of knowing and pursuing our passion.  Nowadays, our world have set us a lot of standards on what career to pursue, what style to wear, or whatsoever, but we don’t necessarily have to follow them. We don't have to do what other people expect us to do. Rather, we need to seek through ourselves what we really want and strive for it. To pray about our desire is also a big help. It may be confusing sometimes, but realizing our passion will give us a sense of fulfillment. Success is not achieved in just being the best in our current career, but in being able to pursue our passion and the career that we really wanted. <3

Another principle that I am thankful I learned last year was the value of personal growth. I heard from some mentors that the key to success is not achieved through developing our skills alone, but through developing our inner self. We should continuously improve our character and the way we treat other people. If we strive to improve our personality, success comes easily.  It should be continuous as we live.  It’s never ending. :)

I actually have more to share but that’s it for now. :D How about you? Have you already taken some time to stop and think? What were the things you learned in your 2014? C’mon! Share me your thoughts, guys! ;)
