I read a lot of blogs, and as the year comes to a close, many of them are doing some sort of "Year in Review" post. I'm not going to do that; her or on The Great Cakescapade. Why? Because 'm not looking back, only forward. Closing the door, completely, on 2012 will be the best thing I can do to get 2013 off to a good start.
I gave up on making resolutions several years ago. Instead, I've just tried to be better and do better than the year before. Last year, I made a vision board. A vision board is a visual collage to motivate you for the year. I'll be doing that again this year, only I plan to kick it up a notch from the cut up magazine page version I made last year. I also plan to do some journaling. I like the idea of a gratitude journal, where you write down one thing for which you are grateful every day. I also like the Project Life items, and the idea of capturing your life throughout the year, but want a more free form approach. I have a few ideas in mind, and plan to work on my 2013-book-of-whatever tomorrow. If I like what I come up with, I may share bits and pieces here.
I also plan to live by the following Maya Angelou quote:
"I can be changed by what happens to me. I refuse to be reduced by it".
Here's to a Happy 2013, and may your wishes, hopes, dreams, and prayers come true! See ya next year!
