Hi! I’m Holly, creator of Never Quite Perfect. I am a mom to 2 daughters, 4 dogs, 2 cats and 1 bunny. It can make life a little crazy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love animals and can’t imagine a life without them around. I won’t talk much about my daughters here to respect their privacy, but I will definitely talk about my furry kids from time to time.
I started keeping a journal back when I was in college. While my journal style has changed a lot over the years, journaling has still stayed a consistent habit. Journaling is a huge help for me mentally and helps me to unwind at the end of the day as well as clarify what is going on in my head. I would be lost without my journals. At this point I have been journaling for over 20 years and have several tubs full of completed journals. For me, my journals go hand in hand with my planning as well. During the week I always start my day with at least 20 minutes of journaling time. Of course I can also be found journaling throughout the day and even in the evenings.
Planning is another necessity for me. I currently have weekly, monthly and yearly planning sessions. These help me to stay on track and keep up with what is important to me and where my energy needs to be focused. There were many years where I did not plan and sadly not much was accomplished during those years.
Tea has been my drink of choice for as long as I can remember. Hot or iced, it doesn’t matter. Since I drink so much tea, I love trying new teas. My younger daughter joins me in this endeavor and has fun tasting and rating the teas with me. We’ve had a YouTube channel doing tea reviews for awhile now and both enjoy trying the teas and sharing our thoughts on them with others.
