2014 has eight days left before it finally ends. We'll be at the edge of an old year again, ready to close the chapter and move on to the next. Almost everyone I know is gearing up for the new year through earning stickers or browsing through book shops to have that "one perfect planner".
To be honest, I don't consider myself a big fan of planners. The last time I kept one was way back in my tween years in high school; back when Candy Magazine distributed their colorful and girly planners. I've managed to live all those years without "being organized". Though everything went well, I admit, it is still undeniable that being organized will make everyday a whole lot better. I don't need to use the super gasgas line, "I'm sorry! I forgot" for events and deadlines I've missed anymore.
I was one of those people who are in the search for that "one perfect planner" in the past few weeks. Some of my friends suggested planners from coffee shops, but I didn't like the idea of pumping caffeine and sugar to my body just to get a planner. I scrolled through Facebook and Instagram and stumbled upon an announcement from The Daykeeper. They were releasing copies of the 2015 datebook and I knew I should get a copy of it. It was definitely the one. I thought about all the creativity and energy draining events this year and said to myself, "I deserve this as a Christmas and New Year present for myself. It's worth it!"
I met the creative genius behind The Daykeeper last September during a camp. I've been a big fan of Katrina's work and meeting her was definitely one of this year's highlights. Do you know that certain feeling of happiness when you finally meet one of the people you look up to? Ahh! It felt surreal meeting her and hearing her talk about creativity and inspiration!
When I finally received my copy of The Daykeeper 2015 a few weeks ago, I can't contain my happiness. The navy blue hardbound cover, etched with gold letters screams simplicity and elegance. The pages are filled with lovely photographs (taken by Katrina), Bible verses, inspiring quotes, and spaces for your daydreams and musings. Plus, the beautiful manifesto that THE Abbey Sy has typographed means so much to me.
The Daykeeper 2015 has depleted its online stocks recently, but I think they still have copies in selected shops abroad. It's best to check out their Facebook and Instagram page for more updates. *whispers* They might have a reprint soon~teehee.
Whatever comes my way in the new year, I'll always be remind me that I should live my life in the light of eternity; that I should have the courage to make my daydreams happen; and that I should be a light in a place of darkness. 2015 is going to be one amazing year, folks! Cheers! :)
