Every once in a while, I'll assign a theme to the upcoming year. This year will be "The Year of Abundance!" I'm not just talking about financial abundance. I want 2015 to be the year where I abundantly experience everything I desire. Abundance of laughter, experiences, creation, joy, giving, inspiration, all of it! I just want my life to overflow with abundance. One way to ensure that happens is to constantly express gratitude for everything. Everything. When I remain in a place of gratitude, I receive even more. To him who has, more will be given. So I intend to remain in a constant state of being grateful for everything/everyone I have.
I heard a successful businessman once say that by the 15th of each month we should already have our goals ready for the following month. With a little over two weeks left in the year, I thought now would be a great time to create an intentions list for the year to come. Next year, I'll be focusing on "who I become" versus obtaining physical items. If I place full focus on becoming the person I want to be, everything else will fall into place.
So far, here are the intentions I wish to experience in 2015 and beyond. It's kind of like my online vision board. Take a look…
Always Look Your Best
My first priority for the New Year is to place lots of effort on my physical presentation. I've slacked mightily in this area but I got the wake up call of my life after having an impromptu conversation with a young lady who put everything in perspective. Looking your best is a form of investing in yourself. I believe that if we make this a priority for ourselves that our lives will CHANGE. New people, experiences and opportunities will come our way that wouldn't otherwise.
Elevate Your Environment
I probably should dedicate an entire post to the power of creating an ideal environment. But for the time being, I want to declare that in 2015, I will constantly be working to elevate the environment of my home. I desire a clean and clutter free space that fosters creativity and inspiration. That is what I will be creating in 2015.
Enjoy Healthier Hair
I have high hopes for my hair in 2015. Micro-trimming has been working out well for me and I imagine that I'll see the full benefits of it 6-9 months from now. This year I'll also try other methods of length retention such as braid outs and satin scarf sets. And of course, I'll plan to stay heavily focused on moisturizing and sealing.
Travel To Amazing Places
My last year was spent traveling to Japan, California and North Carolina. Since we live away from so many family members our spare time is spent traveling to see them. As a result, I haven't really done any "pleasure travel" in the past couple of years [outside of our honeymoon]. This year, I want to visit at least one new city (or country). Better yet, I want to make exotic travel a part of my life.
