Good morning, here I am just like everyone else, closing out 2021 and making all kinds of plans for 2022. Will I keep and do any of the plans I make for the coming year? Have I done so in the past? If I be honest with myself, I have done much better over the years at doing what I say I am going to do. That itself makes me smile, I used to be concerned if others saw in me what I was seeing, then one day none of what they saw mattered. That too makes me smile.
The beginning of 2021 I held a small Zoom session with a few people on why I prefer Vision Journaling vs Vision Boards. I gave each person the opportunity to give a word or a phrase that would describe how they would move through 2021. As I looked back over those words and phrases, I see that a few people did what they set out to do, here I am smiling again.
The word I used for myself was INTENTIONAL. This word was going to help me do things on purpose, with no hesitation. Did I always hit the mark, NOPE but at least I was more aware of what I was supposed to do and decide if the reason I didn’t do it was valid or me being lazy. Being lazy was the winner the majority of the time. Don’t get me wrong, I knocked out so many more of the things I didn’t the year before because I was dead in my tracks with fear. Not in 2021 and most definitely not going to be the case in 2022.
Starting this blog was a desire of mine for so long and finally in the late hours of April I finally hit publish and went to bed. Well, not before making my cousin check it out first and give me her honest opinion. Being intentional in my thoughts and actions in 2021 helped me to move past a lot of insecurities I was facing not to mention I had a lot of people encouraging me and speaking positivity into me.
I think I am going to use INTENTIONAL again as my word for 2022 and see how far it will take me, because if it pushes me anything like it did in 2021, y’all better hold on because I am about to do some big things.
Be Safe and Happy New Year!!
