Hello 2019! Who doesn’t love a fresh start?! I love New Years because it’s a great time to refocus after all the holiday craziness!!
If you’ve followed me for a while, you already know my New Years drill! But if you haven’t I’m going to fill you in on a little family tradition!
For about 11 years now my family has held the tradition of all getting together after January 1st and making a dream board! This is a place where all your goals for the year ahead (or your general future) can be visualized and serve as a reminder when placed somewhere that you will be able to see it everyday!
We all get together, have a yummy dinner & sit around the floor with piles of magazines, scissors, glue, and poster board! We flip through the magazines and cut out anything that has to do with any of our upcoming goals, needs, & wants. Then we place them all over our board! … for some people this takes 5 minutes, or if your neurotic like me it can take 3 hours!
Things cut out for me are normally words, pictures, and phrases. And they don’t always have to be just for that year – I place things on my board as well that I want to see in the future. For instance, going to Greece has probably been on my board since I can remember making them! It’s been about 11 years! I’m SO excited that this year will actually be the last year it’s on my board & I can make room for a new dream spot! Me & Ryan will be officially hitting Greece in September …. I know I will cry when I get there 😂 it has always been my ultimate dream vacation.
Here’s a photo of my dream board this year! I’ll be sharing another post more in-depth about my goals in the next few days!
This tradition is so fun to me and I love that we all get together and do it! If you guys make one or need any help getting one started let me know!!!
