Body, Mind, and Soul Planner

While Skyping with Nan she told me about an idea for a planner that combined items to feed body, mind, and soul. She asked me for some suggestions so she could create a personalized chart. Suggestions were for small steps that over time would become habits. I wasn't sure what she meant but sent her some items for the lists.


A few days after our Skype session, this fun envelope arrived in the mail. It was the only piece of mail for the day, and it was for me. And it wasn't a bill! 😸


Inside was this happy chart. I love the lettering and the mermaid. I really like the sentiment. Progress, not perfection. This saying fits with Wabi Sabi, the philosophy I try to keep in mind. Wabi Sabi: nothing is permanent, nothing is perfect, nothing is complete. Thanks, Nan for letting me play along with you. I hope I can keep up.

  7. What a wonderful gift.
    I'm not familiar with Wabi Sabi, but I like the nothing is permanent or perfect.
    Have a great one.

    1. It's a Japanese concept I picked up from listening to the martial artists discussing their katas/routines. I realized the concept applied to life.
