Can you feel it?
The excitement and anticipation of a New Year with all it’s hopes, dreams and expectations is beginning to fill the air.
I want you to have an AWESOME 2018 so I’ve got 5 ways you can start your New Year with a bang!
Review Your Year
Now is the perfect time to think about all the good things that happened in the past year, and to celebrate the blessings and accomplishments of the previous twelve months. Taking time to reflect enables us to feel more grateful and positions us to create an even brighter future for ourselves in the upcoming year.
(The Joyful Life Playbook has a fun Evaluate and Celebrate section to help you do this perfectly.)
Make a Photo Album
As part of my annual review I love looking through our family photos from the previous 12 months.
Throughout the year I use a Happy Planner for memory keeping each week, then at the end of the year I select the photos that best represent the highlights of our year and create a photo book.
So simple, but the annual family photo album is a beloved tradition in our home.
Choose a Word of the Year
We all know that New Year’s Resolutions don’t work, and honestly, they’re more of a tool of torture than an inspiration because we use them to beat ourselves up for all the negative stuff in our life.
But I’ve found a secret weapon that helps me focus on what I want to achieve in a more positive way:
Choosing an Inspired Word of the Year
This year I’ve actually chosen an entire phrase which you can see pictured above.
If you want a little help with choosing your word, check out the How to Choose an Inspired Word Mini Course, part of the 2018 Beautiful Balance Bundle HERE.
Make a Vision Board
One of my very favorite ways to end the year is by creating a vision board for the upcoming year because when you visualize what you want to happen, you will actually stay focused and work toward it.
Set a Financial Goal
We can probably all use a little check up on our finances after all the holiday expenses, so take the time now to evaluate where you are and where you want to go.
Our family will be focusing on saving money for a bathroom remodel we desperately need in our master bath.
As we enter 2018, if you’d like some serious help with:
- deciding your priorities for this season
- choosing a focus and Inspired Word of the Year
- getting your finances in order
- finally decluttering your home
