Planning Your Future: The Timeline Project

 {planner-Target (last year) // notepad}

When I think about what life will be like next year with a little one, I can't help but daydream a bit about all the new things I want to do, and traditions I want to start as a family of three (ahem-four including Rocky!).

The other day when Billy and I were driving, we were talking about how far we've come (personally and as a couple) since we met 10 years ago. It's crazy to think about - the ups and downs! Our journey has taken us to new cities after college (for Billy), to getting a puppy, to living together and buying our first home, to a wedding, and now soon...a baby!

I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little intimidated or scared about how a baby will change the dynamic of things since it is such a big change, but to me, one thing that helps and keeps me on track is having a place where I can write down my goals/things I want to accomplish for the future. Maybe you have a journal at home with ideas... a note in your phone (you should see my notes section-it's pretty out of control)... something stored on your computer. Whatever it is, if you're anything like me it helps you feel more organized.

My newest favorite option, though, that you might not know about yet is The Timeline Project.

Wondering what I'm talking about? The Timeline Project is an online tool that's part journal, part mood board, and an info-rich resource. It’s all about making your dreams actually happen, by helping you focus on your goals. I love having something online that I can turn to for this, especially when you can make it as detailed as you'd like. It helps you take control and prioritize what's important to you! The project was actually developed by Bayer HealthCare, a leader in women’s health for over five decades, and proud supporters of women everywhere.

You can create your own Timeline to keep track of your goals and dreams here. It's not just limited to relationship goals either... if you're looking for a place to track weight loss goals, for example, you can do that here, as well. There are so many different life categories to pick from!

Now, to help with your future a bit, visit The Timeline Project and share with me a life planning step that you plan to work towards via the comments below.

PS: The winner of the Freshly Picked giveaway will be notified and announced tomorrow!

  2. Thanks for sharing! I'll have to check this out!

  3. Life with a baby is insane! It's so odd how things that mattered before you can care less!!
