2018 WOAH Relax - 2019 Resolutions & Recap

YAY Happy New Year! WOW we made it, can I get an amen?! Seriously where in the world is time going? HOW are we already in the final year of the decade?! That seems so crazy to me. It’s been almost 10 years since I graduated high school. Oh what I only could have told myself then...hmm I’ll save that for another post ;) I hope you all had a wonderful holiday break and New Years celebration
All in all I cannot say just HOW thankful I am for my family and Chayson+future fams. This year I would have to say has been a year of unity, celebration of life, and love. There have been challenges, frustrations, why do things like this happen, and am I being normal? thoughts..but we all have each other to lean on and that is something I am always forever and grateful for. 

Well being that this is the final year of the DECADE we need to make it count!
As every article out there around this time says...Time to LEVEL UP and be Better. The last three years I have written down words or something that encompasses what I want to work on.
2017 - YES + Routines
2018 - Control What I can
2019 - Focus + Be Specific
This year I want to Focus on...
  • #OperationWeddingReady2020 - rounding that up in an upcoming post! 
  • Engage and share more on my blog-content and actually plan
  • Continue that self care life - Amazon and spas took all my 2018 $$$
  • Details Details Details and plan in all areas of life - be more calculated 
  • Read more Books!  Continue with blogs+Podcasts
  • Complete Whole30 #5 and #6
  • Find more productivity hacks - Time management help anyone?
  • Add greens to breakfast, lunch, and dinner - even if it means a juice shot or in a smoothie
  • Ask questions always
  • BE Positive and make it a point to do something nice for someone else
  • Visit another country
  • Try to plan and stick to small monthly goals (Friend dates, new classes, new books, attend an event, try a new date spot)
  • Say YES a little more - back to the 2017 life

To help me with this I decided to get a little crafty over the break and I made a vision book! I've been wanting to do this for awhile and finally got around to it. Basically it is a live tangible Pinterest board. Anything you want to work towards, hope to have, or would like to improve - cut and paste to the board or book. The live visual is a nice reminder each day of YES this is what we are improving. Looking at this as a fun work in progress kind of project - I'll probably add along to it as I go. 

I was going through my bullet note planner/IG stories and I love how it was so easy to pull together the highlights this year. Anyone else have any organization/planner tips?
