Here I sit, in the warm summery town that I called home for many years, and contemplate the fact that in one hour and 2 minutes my fellow countrymen and women will be some of the first people on this planet to ring in the new year.
I have just completed my visualisation mood board for 2014. The one I made this time last year was so successful that, despite any challenges that we faced during 2013, when I look at it now I can honestly say to myself “Yep, this is pretty much how 2013 **felt** for me!”.
Visualisation works. It REALLY does.
So I absolutely had to create a mood board for the coming year too. And here it is… To copy and paste from my own NYE post last year (as I am running out of time to do the short run/yoga/meditation session that I want to symbolically do tonight before a glass of alcohol-free bubbly), “… mood boards such as this help aid/affirm powerful intention, increase motivation and evoke feelings of positivity. You can easily create your own using a page layout program such as InDesign, make one using magazine images and ye olde cut-and-paste method or, if really pressed for time, why not create a Pinterest board called “2014″ and cram it with pins of the things you’d like to fill your life with this coming year?”
And speaking of Pinterest, did anyone see the lovely gratitude jar idea that was all over Pinterest (and possibly your Facebook newsfeed) this time last year? Well, we tried that too! The only thing was that I was almost quadrupling-up on my writing. I religiously, obsessively keep various journals already… and not a day goes by that I write where I do not note things to be grateful for. So we did it for only a month. But the jar filled up very quickly nonetheless! Here’s to 2014! And here’s to all your dreams for the year coming true!
