thursday thoughts: focus

Visualize what you want out of life. Your priorities are defined by where you spend your time and energy.  Focus on your goals.  Chase them.

thursday thoughts: la dolce vita

Dreaming is a form of planning

Maybe you saw this post last week from Paloma over at La Dolce Vita.  This quote has been ringing in my head ever since, so I had to repost.  Many times it’s perceived that letting our minds wander is time wasted, but really, how do we know where we are meant to go if we don’t take the time to dream?

Just something to think about.

thursday thoughts: make it happen

This post is in memory of my Great Aunt Janet, who passed away this morning.  She was everything I hope to be in life:  positive, witty, independent, well-traveled, insightful.

I was lucky enough to visit with her in December.  Her illness was progressing, and I knew it would be the last time I would see her.  She told me to always make time to do the things I want to do, because life goes by so fast.  Such a great reminder that if we want something, we need to make it happen!

i like things to happen. and if they don't happen I like to make them happen.  -winston churchill

my personal mantra for 2015

 

Here’s a few goals I would like to put out there in the universe for 2015.  I think sharing them makes you more accountable, so let’s do this:

My mantra for this year is to SIMPLIFY.

We live in a very complex world.  There is no doubt about it.  I’m an over-thinker and over-analyzer.  A person who always tries to take on more than they should.  A put-others-before-myself kind of girl.  It’s great.  It’s me.  But I need to simplify how I do things and that thought process behind it.

Other items on the list for this year:

  • Get back to my roots
  • Pass my design licensing exam
  • Be open to creativity and inspiration   (read:  Think outside the box!)

That is all for my little public service announcement.   If you could summarize your ultimate goal into just one word for 2015, what would it be?
