Let’s do this 2013.

4 Jan


This is the kinda post that will make some of you think I am insane, but I’m ok with it. Here goes…I am a firm believer in the power of vision boards! I’ve been making them for the past few years and I swear they are life changing. There’s something very powerful about setting clear intentions and seeing the images and words that correspond with them every day. It keeps you focused. It keeps you challenged. It also keeps the universe aware of what you are wanting to co-create.

Last year, Brian and I spent New Year’s Day watching movies, vision boarding and drinking champagne. It was pure bliss. We loved it so much, in fact, that we decided to do it again this year. After sleeping in until 10 am, we moved to the living room to do just that all day. Minus the hour walk we took on the beach. It was a perfect way to reboot for the New Year.


I thought I would take a few moments to share some of my resolutions with you. The new year always feels like a fresh start and a new beginning and always puts me in a positive, excited head space.

I really want to get back into cooking and baking this year, especially with the new fabulous kitchen we will have in our new fabulous home. It would be a travesty if I didn’t, actually. I learned during the 365 til 30 project that being in the kitchen calms me. It’s also one of my favorite activities to do with Brian. One of them…

I want to start volunteering again. I didn’t realize how much volunteering affected my life for the better until I stopped doing it. I now know that when I am not giving back in some way, I find myself not as connected to the bigger picture and overly obsessing about my own life. I put volunteer as a big sister on my goal list for this year for the year when I turned 30 but haven’t gotten the ball rolling on it yet. It’s been six months. I have no excuse.

Have a fabulous happy wedding. I’m three months into this whole wedding planning thing and I can already see how it can become overwhelming and exhausting. I keep hearing horror stories from other couples about how you end up fighting all the time during the planning process and I do not want that to be our reality for the next ten months. I told Brian on our beach walk that I want not only to enjoy every single millisecond of our big day but I want to enjoy all the moments leading up to it.

Live a more healthy and balanced life. Lately, I have been feeling like I haven’t been making the best decisions for my health. Not just physical health but mental health. I haven’t been making time for yoga. I haven’t been meditating regularly. I haven’t been eating as cleanly as I could, and, with the holidays and vacationing I have been eating more sugar and imbibing more alcohol. So, as cliché as this sounds coming out of my mouth early January, I have decided to take a month-long break from sugar, gluten, alcohol and maybe caffeine, although I truly can’t imagine giving that one up…how would I get out of bed in the morning??? Lastly I am committing to myself that I will get to yoga three times a week and make time for meditation each day.

writing…writing…writing. Simply put, I plan on doing LOTS more of it this year. I want to finish my book and I want to get it published. I would love to have a few of my articles published in magazines. Oh, and I would die for a regular column. But most importantly I want to write every day. Even if it’s just in my journal.

Side note…did you notice the new heading on the blog just reads 365 til…?! I dropped the 30! Partly because I am already 30 and partly because the blog is so much more than that now. It’s 365 til everything in my life.

These are just a few of the things on my list (Frank) What are some of your resolutions?! Let’s keep each other motivated this year!

Considering we are fast approaching the New Year (I still can’t believe it) I have decided to spend the afternoon revamping my vision board. I have to admit I have fallen into a bit of a December fog with all the holiday stuff and need to refocus a bit. I have so many big desires for 2012 and I need to see them on paper! Brian happens to have today off and I have somehow gotten him to agree to do a vision board as well. Although in all fairness I think he’s rather into it after seeing so many images manifest off my last vision board. I’ll post pictures later! But, in the meantime if you are in the mood to create a new vision board for the New Year click here to see some pointers

People are starting to think I am a bit insane when it comes to Frank ( Minus my mother who now calls every French Bulldog on the street a “Frank dog”). Why do I think people are starting to think I am insane? Because everyone asks me how Frank is doing and I have to explain he is not real. Then they give me a concerned look and smile and say “Oh, that’s cute.” I can’t say I blame them, it’s probably not cute for a 29-year-old women to have a pretend dog. The truth is, I’m not sure how to manifest Frank at this exact moment because we can’t have a dog in our place! We are looking to move in the new year for this very reason. Maybe Frank is supposed to manifest closer to my 30th birthday and I am going to have to sit tight and get comfortable with the fact that people are going to think I am a bit insane.
