I didn't make New Year's Resolutions this year, but recently I've seen other people post more creative options which has inspired me. Christina-Marie Wright of The Gonzo Mama has implemented A Year of Yes where she is pushing herself to do things outside of her comfort zone. It was her joining the roller derby in order to make connections with other women that resonated with me so much. I too seek those connections. Karen Walrond of Chookooloonks creates vision boards. This year she posted how she and her daughter create them together. I also LOVE her post describing her journaling process. Then I noticed the BlogHer Ad for the Own Your Beauty campaign, which asks each of us to think about what we're capable of achieving. They have a word each month to help guide you. Some people pick a word for the year. But I think it was Britni Danielle of This Side of the Wall that really provided the model for my project. It's my visual guide to what I hope will happen in 2011. It centers around the words "dreams" and "action" because I want to finally act on my dreams. First though, I had to be brave enough to actually give voice to my dreams. And here they are:
