Resolutions….Viva 2015

Vision Board

Most people make resolutions for the New Year at the beginning to each year. They are excited for the new opportunity to “begin anew”, to try something outside of their comfort zone, and even more so, to challenge themselves. Some people vow to have better relationships, be more involved in their community, and pledge to a healthier way of life. Whatever your reason for beginning anew, makes sure your vision is aligned with your dreams, that your goals are measurable, and that more importantly, that make yourself accountable.

I don’t usually write down a list of goals or resolutions ( in this respect). Nor do i set them at the “beginning of the year.” Instead, I create a vision board that I can see each and every day of My Year. I avoid rushing to do one at end or right at the start of the year. Like you, i’m adjusting to the conclusion of a busy work year, entrepreneurial or home life; and then there its begin a whole new cycle.  Typically,  I’ll have my vision board hanging in my bedroom or hallway to some place that will be a daily reminder of life’s mission ~ a colorful plan on how i envision my success.

Vision boards create a visual stimulation as well as a more inspiring approach to achieving ones goal. You can use pictures, inspirations phrases, and a collage of words to hearten your motivation.

What have I accomplished? Throughout the year I used pictures to commemorate the goals from my vision board. So if you’ve follow me on social media, you will see that my pictures are refelction of my vision.

Built for This…

At times it feels easier to deny your reality than to accept your fate.  As long as you act as if  your troubles are indistinguishable, then your triumph will feel invisible.

Incredibly, in your unchanged effort to protect your feelings, you can chip away at your Presence.

Yes, days can be difficult and some night can even seem unbearable, but you must find the determination to be persistent in finding peace through your challenges.  You must remind yourself of your troubles and accomplishments, for both are valuable teachers.  You must learn to be your own motivator…. This is not due to the lack of support you may think you don’t have; instead, it ‘s in the reassurance that you were built for a world like this world. Your battles existed before you had anticipated them, You were built for failure to feats.

Mosaic: Our made up Life….

Mosaic Blend

Its hard for me to blend in at times. I am not driven to look, sound, or feel like anyone else but myself. Spending your days trying to fit into a mold which someone else created for you, will make life appear more difficult and unfullfilled than it was meant to BE.

Our younger self(s) was always unsure about who we are and what we will surmount to, but what we tend to forget are all those moments that make up joy of  LIFE.  It is important to be grateful and inspired by every moment in your life. When you do this, you will realize how much the goodtimes out way the bad, and how lucky you are to have such a wonderfullly made up life.

Dont try to blend. Dont try to be, look or sound like any one else but yourself; for we are all individually and wonderfully created.
