Vision boards are a great way to plan out your year...manifest what you hope to accomplish and gain from the year. I usually cut and paste things randomly on my board but this year I decided to organize it into categories: travel, health, self-love, and finance/adulting crap, lol. What's going on your vision board this year? What kind of things inspire you?

If I didn’t learn anything in 2019, it was to be intentional in everything I do. Being intentional is about identifying your values, dreams, priorities, goals, etc. and aligning your actions accordingly. Once I was able to clearly establish this, everything started working and flowing in my favor.
1. Be mindful of the media you consume
2. Choose to be kind
3. Do something that brings you joy
4. Ask “why” before you buy
5. Practice active listening
6. Make time for self-reflection
7. Do something you can be proud of
8. Question you “have to’s”
9. Prioritize rest and self-care
10. Reevaluate your relationships
After you’ve defined what you want and desire in the New Year it is extremely important you create the space for it manifest. The idea of “creating space” can mean a variety of things. Schedule time and room for experiences, relationships, opportunities to come and go in your life. Sometimes it is impossible for us to enter new doors if we’re still stuck behind a door we should’ve left long ago.
This goes hand in hand with creating space but is important as a standalone factor. Decluttering means getting rid of ANYTHING that is in your way. Whether this means you need to clean out your closets and drawers or erasing negative thoughts from 2019—LET IT GO. It is nearly impossible to move forward in the New Year without removing clutter and negative debris from the previous year. Declutter your environment, your mind, your body, etc. Clearing your mind and heart of dead weight helps give you energy and allows you to focus on the path ahead.
Many of us rush into the New Year because we’re eager for fresh start and enjoy feeling like we can reset. It is very important we look at where we’ve been before we can properly plan for where we’re headed. Take time to consciously reflect on the major incidents of 2019. Ask yourself:
1. What did I do most to contribute to my successes?
2. What did I do to most contribute to my failures?
3. What would I do differently given the same set of circumstances?
4. Who were the people worthy of my time and effort?
5. Who did I spend where I received no value?
6. In what ways did I not measure up to my potential?
7. What do I remember most about 2019?
A new year is always refreshing but it can be daunting if you’re unsure of what’s ahead. The best way to overcome the fear of the unknown is to plan and prepare. This is the time to make commitments that you will keep. Be the person you truly want to be. My journey has brought me so much happiness and gratification that I was inspired to share these tips with you. Go into the New Year with hope and wonder. Who will be my inspiration this year? What new adventures are ahead? Where are the lessons to learn?
