What I’m Using My Heidi Swapp Memory Planner For.

Some time ago you may remember I used my personal sized, Jamie Notes, ring planner for my positive life journaling. Here’s a little reminder…



In time I began to out grow this little planner. It was too small for what I had in mind. So I eventually set it aside and kept my eyes open for something a little bigger.

Then, just before Christmas, I saw the Heidi Swapp Memory Planner. It was love at first sight. As I drooled over images of it on all social media platforms my mind flooded with potential ideas. Then I remembered I still had need of something to document my journey to a more positive lifestyle. Heidi Swapp’s memory planner stole my heart and so I decided it was “the one”.

So, like every new year, January started with good intentions. And I committed to them all. That is until life decided to throw me some curve balls. I was tested over and over until I couldn’t take it anymore. I broke down in tears exhausted. So I set all my plans aside and I stopped. I learned enough by then to know sometimes you just have to do what’s right for your own wellbeing regardless of what your to do list says.

So began a fresh commitment to my search for a more well balanced, positive life. I knew my downer was all down to listening, once again, to all negativity and not feeding my soul. I was spiritually starving! I started to keep a journal in my Lyradori from Lyra and Co.


At this point, having a set of new principles and steps I was taking, such as keeping a record of things I am grateful for, answers to prayer, a commitment to putting into practice forgiveness, I needed that planner! So, better late than never I got out my Heidi Swapp memory planner and set about documenting each day.

I began by printing out photos of things I was grateful for, using my new Polaroid Zip.


Next I decorated this weeks spread using some washi tape and various stickers in my stash…



I then set about recording what I am grateful for and setting my intention for the week.


Within this planner I will be recording the following:

  • Affirmations
  • Intentions
  • Gratitude
  • Meaningful quotes
  • Answers to prayer
  • Miracles
  • Images, photos, and keepsakes related to any of the above
  • Anything else that comes to mind that is relevant to the journey

Last time I did this it was a really therapeutic process. It is also a beautiful way to document a journey you may be on be it a spiritual one, parenting, travelling, etc. Once it is full I have a wonderful keepsake.


So that is what I’m using my planner for. Who else has one and what are you doing with yours?

  1. What a great way to use this planner! It has never struck me as a ‘normal everyday’ planner and not many of us have awesome memories to record each day, but we all have stuff to be grateful for and all need to live with positivity. I covet your Heidi Swapp! 😁 xx

    1. Thanks Karen! I totally agree regarding it not coming across as a normal, everyday planner. I knew it had to be used for something special. 💗

  2. I started using mine for daily quote recording but didn’t keep up. I feel inspired to start something again now though. Thank you xxx
