How to import notebooks from Evernote to Springpad

As much as I adore Evernote to organize my thoughts and for clipping great articles and photos, I still really wanted to use Springpad because I prefer it’s “Thumbnail view” for easier scanning. And you can never have too many backups, right?

I wasn’t about to go through all 200 plus notes and “spring” each one. There had to be a way to import all my notes, but how? Continue reading “How to import notebooks from Evernote to Springpad”

Has Helping Others Become a Trend?

What do you think of when you hear the the word “philanthropy” or “pay it forward”?

I’m a huge fan of making someone’s day better and was brought up to help others in need and to love everyone. It makes sense, to me, to do  this on a daily basis. Maybe that’s why I can’t wrap my head around the fact that a reminder to be kind to others is even needed. Has being kind and Philanthropy become a trend because of this?

Changes are scary. Changes are needed.

A new job was the change I needed.

The job was in a different industry that I had very little knowledge about so I  had to take a chance or take the safe route and look for yet another job doing what I’m used to, but didn’t really want to do. Continue reading “Changes”

Journaling for Yourself

Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in life has a purpose. ~ Henry David Thou

I used to keep a personal journal through Middle and High School. For some reason, I haven’t kept one since. And I miss it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a writer or not. It’s important to have a place to be yourself 110% and preferably with pen and paper you can keep completely private.

Until today, I didn’t realize how many different journals I had to keep certain topics separate. This one for Career and journey through life, in general, my coffee blog to share my passion, a Poetry notebook, and a Writer’s notebook for prompts and story ideas. And a diary to be myself that nobody sees Continue reading “Journaling for Yourself”
