We’ve been Priming the Pump for Our New Vision
For the last couple of weeks we’ve been priming the pump for creating a vision for our lives.
We’ve got our vision book/vision journal/focus wheel happening!
We’re collecting magazines for visuals and pictures that we feel drawn to.
We are also collecting great quotes and captivating words to encourage grounding thoughts.
We’ve started to clear the decks to get ready for creating our vision by getting our head straight and our heart right with Gratitude and Positive Affirmations.
We may or may not have began decluttering our space to welcome new energy in! Preparing for new energy is a lot like preparing for company and a great dinner! We’re whipping open the curtains, washing the windows, and clearing the table so we can set something beautiful and delicious!
The End of Year Retrospect
The end of the year is a sacred time to curl up and honor the time that has passed and reflect on what it meant. Writer Zora Neale Hurston once said, “There are years that ask questions, and years that answer” Which one was it for you? As you take the time to reflect on the past years, also take the time to reflect on the upcoming one, too. What do you hope for? What are you dreaming about? What would you like to change? Take in the lessons and the memories of the past year. Then, in your new year, plant more of what you want and prune away all that you don’t. It’s time to write your new chapter.
