Bring order to your life!

Plan your life, plan your future. How many times have we heard that? The idea of having concrete, achievable goals seem to be deeply ingrained in our culture. Consider this common belief: “You’ll never get anywhere unless you know where you’re going.” This seems so common sense, and yet it’s obviously not true if you stop to think about it.

Conduct a simple experiment: go outside and walk in a random direction, and feel free to change directions randomly. After 20 minutes, an hour … you’ll be somewhere! It’s just that you didn’t know you were going to end up there. How exciting is that?!

These days, however, I live without goals, for the most part. It’s absolutely liberating, and contrary to what you might have been taught, it absolutely doesn’t mean you stop achieving things. Living in the NOW means you are constantly achieving. Doing what you love takes you on unexpected and awesome paths you would never have discovered if you planned every minute of the future. In the end, I usually end up achieving more than if I had goals, because I’m always doing something I’m excited about. But whether I achieve or not isn’t the point at all: all that matters is that I’m doing what I love, always.

When you think you control something, you’re wrong. We constantly make plans that never actually turn out the way we envisioned. ‘If you want to make God laugh, make a plan,’ an old saying goes. When we are in the midst of chaos, let go of the need to control it. Be awash in it, experience it in that moment, try not to control the outcome but deal with the flow as it comes.

But that doesn't mean we don't need ORDER in our lives. We do. And my Calendars on RedBubble allows you to do just that, have ORDER in your life. Remember birthdays, anniversaries, keep track of important dates and when you planted that rose bush. And as a bonus, each month's page has a beautiful piece of art work on it, 13 images yours for the framing, at the great price of one calendar!

Printed to fit A3, with a size of 11.7" x 16.5", each calender has a tough wire binding and hanger and stunningly sharp digital printing on 200gsm satin art paper with a tougher cover. You can also start the year with the month of your choice.

To view the full range of my Calendars, please view ART : Calendars. I'm positive you fill find something that pleases you, if not, just enjoy!

"Don't be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of."
