Now that we’re a couple of weeks into the year, how are your new year’s resolutions holding up? Maybe you’re better than I am, but I know that when I’ve set resolutions they never last very long. However, if I set intentions based on what’s important to me, I find that they guide me through the new year in a positive way. I’ve shared before that I like to chose one little word for the year that I can keep going back to. This practice along with creating a dream or vision board helps me stay on track with making progress towards my best self.
When I shared the details from my New Year’s Dream Board Party, I also put it out into the world that my word for 2017 is CREATE. I fell in love with this word for its versatility. Creating is something that I’m passionate about, but the word is also a reminder that I have the power to create a life I love. Besides the obvious party projects that I want to create, I also want to create different kinds of art, precious memories with my family, healthy habits, and new work opportunities.
Viewing a visual representation of your intentions on a daily basis really helps to set them in your mind. Dream Boards are such a great tool for this! Be sure to include words, quotes, and images that will remind you of your intentions for the future. And the good news is that creating a dream board does not need to be done on January first. It can be done any time of the year, so don’t feel like you missed the boat or that you need to wait for another fresh year. If you think you’d like to make a dream board for yourself, I want you to have the printable inspirational cards that I designed for my party guests.
I found that printing these on 4×6″ photo paper at home worked really well. You can also just print the one you want on cardstock or regular printer paper. If you want to get fancy (or you just don’t have a color printer at home that you love) you can send the file off to be printed wherever you usually like to print your photos. Even if you don’t want to make an entire dream board, these inspirational prints would look fabulous in a frame. Pick the one that speaks to your intentions, pop it into a 4×6″ frame, and place it somewhere you’ll see it each day.
Enjoy these free printable inspirational quotes centering around the words create, dream, happy, family, love, and shine. Just click on the image you like to bring up the pdf file.
