Happy new year, friends and frenemies! I hope you all had a lovely night, whatever you got up to. I spent New Year’s Day in the foetal position and tonight in the shower, I discovered a large and mysterious bruise on my knee. Good times!
So, a while back, I came across Sarah Yates’s blog, a house in the hills. It’s a really lovely space, full of bright photographs, healthy recipes and outfits that I would wear in another life in which I was way cooler than I am in this one. When Sarah posted the vision board that she had created, I was intrigued: imagine the life you want and it will manifest. It’s all very The Secret-esque, but while not being head over heels in love with the state of my life at the moment, I decided to create my own vision board for 2013.
Obviously, my skills do not lie in graphic design but you get the idea.
In 2013, I want love, travel, good times, to improve my style (image is everything), break a lifelong habit of nail biting, a place to call my own, health, a job with a publishing company – or perhaps to have a publisher, and to keep writing the novel. The images of text are reminders.
I’ve set this picture as my desktop wallpaper so that I can see it all the time. This is the life I want. This is the life I’m going to work for. They’re also kind of new year’s resolutions but nothing really specific that I’ll inevitably fail to achieve over the course of the year.
Do you have a vision board? Or are you making resolutions?
