I love New Year's! I love the thought of a fresh start, the new possibilities. It's a clean slate. I always feel like I can do anything that first week of January! Anybody else feel like that? AND THEN the second week rolls around! I get distracted and start forgetting my goals and my high hopes!
A few years ago, I was introduced to a fantastic concept called Dream Books! I got together with a bunch of friends with a 3 ring binder and a stack of old magazines in hand! My friend in charge of this event had glue, scissors, more magazines and colored paper for us to use. She then set out the plan:
PUT YOUR DREAMS ON PAPER AND THEY WILL BE MORE LIKELY COME TRUE!!!
She shared with us that 85% of the things in your dream book would come true, if you kept that book out and looked at it often throughout the year as your are living and working toward your goals.
In my opinion, 85% of my dreams is pretty darn good!

Now, you can make a book with different pages and some sections (like money, personal, business, home, spiritual, etc), or you can make a board of any size and fill that up to hang on your wall. Use whatever method will help you keep that focus. I use the boards for my kids because I can hang them on the wall by their beds and they can stare at it as they are waking up or going to sleep. (and maybe by osmosis whilst they sleep???!!! ;D)
I made a book because I can add more to it and focus on topics. Here are some pictures of our work to help get you inspired to get your goals up and in the open, so you can make them happen. Your family will see each other succeed in making dreams big or small come true! What an awesome thing to teach your children. Decide what you want, and go for it. Work hard to make it a reality.
Here is a great goal-setting printable from Homeschoolapalooza! Go print it out to keep a laser focus on a goal.
And finally, I have sprinkled in some of my favorite quotes, and a link to where you can pin them or buy them! (I am not affiliated with any of these fine shops, by the way. I just truly love their work!)
Happy New Year!
GOOD LUCK MAKING YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE!
