I’ve been looking for a printable like this for a while, a single page where I could set up my entire month and quickly refresh my memory of my monthly, weekly and daily self care & work goals at a glance. Having found nothing, I decided to make my own.
The “Word of the Month” box is where you will set your single word intention for the month. What one thing do you want to really focus on this month?
The “Monthly Goals and Habits” section is where you will list the things that need to be done at some point during the month. Single goals and/or to-dos that only need to be done once, with a single check box to tick it off once it’s finished.
The “Weekly Goals and Habits” section is where you will list the things that need to be done every week. I’ve supplied 4 checkboxes, one for each week of the month, for each item listed here.
And finally, the “Daily Goals and Habits” section is for those habits you want or need to do every day. Each item here has 31 check boxes so that you can keep track of your running streaks, motivating you to keep going with your daily habits!

The Dark Moon is a great time to look within and explore the deepest aspects of ourselves. To release those things that are no longer serving us or that we’re just ready to let go of. And one of my favorite methods of releasing and letting go is journaling. I put everything I have into it, I visualize these things literally flowing from my body, through the pen and into the paper.
So set aside some time to yourself, grab your journal and a cup of tea and get ready to set up your path for the month ahead.
Are there any places in my life that I’m expending too much of my energy?
Are there areas of my life that I’ve been ignoring that deserve more attention?
While there are a number of “Currently” type free printables already out there, I have been wanting to make my own with prompts that call to me for a while now. And obviously if I make something for myself, I have to share it with all of you! I like to fill one of these out about once a month then review and compare them at the end of the year. I could even easily see doing one a week if your life is particularly fast paced!
I’m very pleased to present my first free journal printable, 25 Things That Make My Soul Sing. I love journaling of all kinds but lists will always hold a special place in my heart. There’s no better way to learn how to love yourself than to sit down and make a list of the things you love the most. Those things you absolutely can’t live without. Once you have these things written down in one place, you can make sure you incorporate as many as possible into your life on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
Today is the day when we take stock of the lessons of the past year and let it go, welcoming in a new year and a new start. And this year we get double the bang for our buck with a new moon on the first day of the new year! Making the 1st the perfect day to plant the seeds you want to grow over the next year.
Like myself, many of you beautiful Goddesses probably did some releasing work on the Winter Solstice. And while the solstice is a wonderful time for this kind of releasing work, new year’s eve is also a great time for it, particularly for specifically letting go of the past year and preparing for the new one.

The New Moon
As I mentioned above, the new moon falls on the first day of the year making it a powerful time for manifesting all of your desires for the new year. I generally use the new moon to plant the seeds that I want to grow over the next month. However, this new moon is perfectly positioned for planting the seeds we want to grow over the entire next year.
The journaling prompts above are a great way to accomplish this. I’ve been doing a type of manifesting journaling that I call Journaling with Intent for the past few months and have seen some great results. I use statements that suggest my goal has already been accomplished (ie “I am healthy” rather than “I will be healthy” or “I want to be healthy”) and I visualize my goals actualized while I write. It’s a great, simple and effective way to bring about change in your life.
I’m letting go of any self defeating and self loathing thought patterns that occurred so often in 2013. For 2014 I’m planting seeds to grow my personal yoga practice so that I can start teacher training and focusing on making this blog everything I dream it can be!
