Happy New Year!
How were your holidays? Absolutely marvelous I hope!
We had a great couple of weeks off. Okay, so technically LG was the only one off. I worked most of the time. And by worked, I mean I showed up. I can neither confirm nor deny my productivity levels.
So, let’s talk resolutions. I know a lot of people scoff at the idea of resolutions, but I think they’re a great way to put out in the universe those things which you are hoping to accomplish over the next 365 days. Sometimes resolutions work, sometimes they don’t, but I’m certainly not going to knock them.
I did a vision board this year. A physical vision board. I went to H.obby L.obby, grabbed a french bulletin board and got to work. I bought LG one and she’ll do hers in the next few weeks. Last year I did a virtual one on Pinterest, but I never really looked at it and decided this year I’d better do something a little more concrete. On my vision board are: my Bible verse for the year, a travel quote, a quote about God, a piggy bank to represent my increased savings, an exercise motivator and a PhD visual. I may add a few more pictures, but that’s pretty much it. I hung it beneath my window and it is now the first thing I see when I roll over in the morning.
In addition to those things, I will be more deliberate in the choices I make regarding my health and I will read at least 50 books (including the Bible).
My overarching goal for this year is to be more conscious of the words that come out of my mouth and the thoughts that I have – to make them more loving, kinder, positive, uplifting. No wonder then that my verse for the year is Psalm 19:14.
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.”
What are your plans for the year? Have you written them down? Will you?
This is my vision board. I’m going to add a few things to “pretty it up,” but these are my areas of concentration for the year.
