This Beautiful Life

Hello 2018

If you have been following my blog for a while now, you know that I start 2017 with the intention of completing a Happiness Project of my own. And, you also know that I didn’t get very far. Like everything else, life happened and I got a bit sidetracked.

While I would love to do something similar this year, I don’t want to set myself up for failure, either.

Let’s be honest…2016 and 2017 have been challenging years. Oftentimes I have felt the sting of failure, or the fear of drowning in stress and anxiety. These aren’t things I talk about often, because, you know what they say: fake it till you make it.

As I sit here and reflect on the last few years, I am tired, but I am grateful. I have my perfect husband, my amazing son, and a wonderful, supportive family. And, for the first time in a long time, I feel like change is coming. 2018 is going to be the beginning of the life my husband and I have been working so hard to achieve. It just feels different this time around.

So, today, I will not be setting resolutions that will inevitably be broken. I will not be creating a list of things I need to change. Instead, I am spending today working on a new vision board in which I simply highlight my goals, and create affirmations for growth and progress for the next 365 days.

I highly recommend vision boards. The process of creating them is cathartic in itself. For me, creating a vision board allows me to find some clarity in what it is that I really want.  Once I have my vision board all created, I will be happy to share my final product, my process, and my intention with you all.

In the meantime, I want to wish all of my subscribers, readers, friends and family a very Happy New Year! Take some time to set your own intentions for 2018. Let’s make this our best year yet!a
