Ummm, I can’t believe we’re in the middle of January already! Happy late new year people! I figured I’d share with you guys a little family tradition of mine, that helps put a focus on all your dreams/goals/plans for the future – both big & small!
I was always raised to stay focused on the bigger and better things to come, having goals and visions for what you want out of your life! I don’t remember how long it’s been now but every year sometime in the month of January my family gets together and has a night where we create “dream boards” aka “vision boards” whatever you want to call them! They are made to put in a place you’re in frequently, (mines in my closet because I obviously go in there everyday to do my make-up and hair) so you see it everyday.
We get out a white poster-board and sit around with a billllionnnn magazines, scissors, tape, glue and go to town cutting out and pasting anything that motivates or inspires us! Any goals at work, home or in your relationships with others! Things you want to look at everyday, and reminders of certain things that make you feel good! Some people have 5 things on their board and some have 50, sometimes I have the same things on my board a few years in a row! My dream vacation is to go to Greece so that’s on my board every year until I get my booty there, every year I promise I’ll clean up my bad mouth (again, still working on that as well) and everyyyy year, as most of us women do, I’ll promise myself I’ll have my best body ever!
The main thing here is that there are no rules, and seeing your dreams/goals everyday really can help you be more focused on those things and be more intentional. My last word of advice is that if you’re anal like me, you should lay things out on your board till you get it justttt right, and then glue! It’s an extra step but it’s worth it for your sanity!
Wishing everyone a great start to 2017
