Tools4Wisdom Planner 2017 Calendar



Tools4Wisdom Planner 2017 Calendar (8.5 x 11 Hardcover)
Use code MEKEEP50 on Amazon for a 50% savings


I don't know about you, but I like to try and stay organized...I say try because I am terrible at it 😊 I use a daily planner to put my appointments and work schedule into it...but I needed something more for a long term goal.

Not a lot of you know, but I suffer from anxiety and chronic depression. I currently go to counseling and one of the things that my counselor and I work on...is setting goals. Baby steps to help deal with the anxiety and feelings that I keep bundled up. She suggested doing a vision board or something similar so that I have something to fall back on when I am in one of my bouts of depression.

I had seen the Tools4Wisdom daily planner before and thought it was just another planner. But once I really looked into the details I knew this was something that might be able to help me to plan separately from my every normal day routine.



The pages aren't just filled with the normal daily text. In the front of every month, there is a place to add objectives to achieve and the biggest goals you want to achieve that month. What is the purpose of that goal and what the biggest outcome will be once you achieve it? The Tools4Wisdom Planner gives you simple tips to living life with purpose both personally and professionally.

This planner not only gives me suggestions on how to build myself up but it's that visual stimulation that my counselor and I have so often talked about. My "Vision Board" so to say. I can add my goals to the pages, lift myself up and begin to learn how to love myself and keep loving myself by taking those baby steps.

The planner has tabs that separate the months and on the back of the page, it's blank. I use that blank page to place pictures on that have to do with my goals. It's my vision board inside my life changer! I can put pictures of places I've been that made me the happiest, or places I want to go. Feelings I identify with that will give me positive feedback.




If you are looking for that perfect planner, Tools4wisdom has everything you need, wrapped into one wonderful hardcover book! Don't forget to use code MEKEEP50 for 50% off your new planner! Start planning your goals today and bring your life into focus.

Trusty Pup Dog Toys and More


Trusty Pup Dog Toys and More
You can find these at most pet stores and major retailers!
Connect with the brand:


When looking for a great pet toy or bed for our fur babies, you always want the best. As a dog mom, I want to spoil my fur baby with something she will not only love but that will last through her rough "tug of war" play.

My Kaia loves her little Dragon chew toy and carries it with her just about where ever she goes. I love that she enjoys it and that it's durable enough that she can't tear it apart. It also keeps her away from chewing on the things she shouldn't...like my socks 😈





Dogs chew instinctually to keep their teeth clean and as an outlet for boredom. Give your dog an appropriate alternative to your shoes with a durable chew toy.












Now at bedtime, we are trying to teach her that our bed is not her bed. (Yeah right she says) but she's doing pretty well... when the cat doesn't take it over. It's ok though, she loves to share with her fur sister! The TrustyPup pet bed is made with memory foam and is so comfortable that if I was small enough...I would definitely pick her bed rather than mine.







Many dogs instinctually sleep curled up because their ancestors needed to keep warm and protect themselves from predators. Bolstered and high-walled beds recreate this feeling of safety and warmth.



Kaia loved her bed so much, that we went out and purchased another one for downstairs! It's also got the memory foam and it's much larger than the other one we keep upstairs for her. That way she can share with her fur sisters no matter where she is! They love to curl up together.


So if you are looking for a great product to spoil your pets, then TrustyPup has got you covered. Thier products are durable and comfortable and keep your pets happy and active...well when they aren't sleeping on a comfortable bed!
