I've stated previously that I don't really make New Year's resolutions. I just reassess my goals and vision and figure out what I accomplished the previous year and which goals I want to accomplish in the New Year. I like to create a vision board as a visual reminder of the things that I want to do – land the job that I will truly enjoy (time to make my exit from the legal field?), make sure my health stays on track (#diabeticproblems), and do more of the things that make me happy. I put places I want to go – New Orleans for a Saints home game is high on the list this year (also going to London for one of the NFL International games. Sponsors welcome. *smile*). I also added a style icon this year – who else would I put for 2014 but Kerry Washington/Olivia Pope? I recently worked on my vision board (a work in progress) and I wanted something cute to add to the board. Well, during my last trip to Marshalls I was looking through the items near the checkout counter when I found these fleur-de-lis push pins and had to have them (Geaux Saints!). I must make another trip to Marshalls to get more so that I can continue to work on my vision board.
Along the lines of keeping my goals and dreams in front of me, I always keep a journal with me. I love to write down ideas, plans, goals, and drafts of future blog posts (I'm currently typing this blog post from a draft in my journal). Marshalls always has the best journals for the lowest prices. I can't go in Marshalls without looking at their journals and notepads. Oh. And see that cool jar on the left side of my desk? That's also from Marshalls. As soon as I find a piece of chalk and figure out exactly what I want to do with it I'm going to label it. Check back over the next week to see other goals I'm working on for 2014. What do you have on your vision board?
