Living on Ideas and Inspiration…

I so enjoy the numerous blogs out there –from the inspirational and culturally informative blogs right down to the make-up and style blogs. I realized something ALL these blogs have in common –at least the thriving ones.  I realized all these blogs are full of someone’s ideas and inspiration.

 

In this New Year, as you explore and become re-acquainted with the amazing person you already are (betcha didn’t know I knew this about you huh?!)… Well…as I was saying. As you become more in tuned with your amazingness, I challenge you to write your thoughts down and make it happen.

Even if you’re not one for officially “journaling”, I still encourage you to take this year to write down everything you want to see happen in your life.  Now, understand, I am not saying that every single thing is going to happen just because you wrote it down.  However, what I am saying is there is something about re-visiting your writings and seeing how much has come to fruition.  It’s almost like it energizes you to keep pushing!  Also, it helps to see where your focus is or where it should be.

Do you want to be debt free? Write down a budget, make a money plan, read and research. You want to travel more, than get the plan written out. (Side Note: Write It Down, Make It Happen by Henrietta Klauser is a good read).  I don’t care if you write something to the effect of “2016, start a blog about…”, then explore what you want to start blogging.  Just do it!  Write down all the things that inspire you and all the ideas you have to get to where you want to go -no matter how extravagant or minimalistic it may be.

(Disclaimer: This post was also inspired by all those great ideas floating around about what to do with a Powerball lottery win). You are more likely to achieve your own personal goals, without winning the lottery, if you simply get serious about Y-O-U.  Invest those two bucks in a cute notebook.  Write yourself love letters; ramble about the exotic spot you want to visit; explore all your Pinterest ideas (I know you want to try EVERYTHING on there).

 

Care to share one of your Making It Happen in 2016 ideas? I’d love to hear it; comment below.  You can also tweet with the hashtag #MakingItHappen2016. There is absolutely nothing wrong with putting pen to paper and exploring!

Sincerely,

Your Restyled Mom…who is enjoying this adventure, taking notes along the way and #MakingItHappen2016!

 

Got Goals?

It’s about 49 days shy of being 2016.  What are your Top 3 Goals for the New Year?

There’s an Instagram post I usually see, around mid-January, which reads something like “if you’re just now planning your goals for the New Year, then you’re already late!”  I’m paraphrasing, but this statement is so discouraging!  However, this post is to ERADICATE the aforementioned ever applying to you; and in turn, ENCOURAGE you to #ShineIn2016!

I usually get started on my New Year’s goals in the New Year, of course.  Though this time, my approach to the new year will be different.  Last year, I completed my 2015 goals worksheet on January 1, 2015.  While I will complete my goals worksheet again for 2016, I have started early –comparing my 2015 accomplishments (some not so accomplished) to what I am working towards in the coming year.  Failure is not an option and there is no room for doubt. (Tweet This) 

Just as it takes time to break a habit, it also takes time to form one.  As of today, November 13, 2015, I have decided to go into 2016 already Rockin’ It!  With that said #RestyledMom, let’s not get so far into 2016 waiting for our budgets, our diets, our attitudes, our _____________ (fill in the blank) to fall in line before deciding to kick your goals into high gear.  You’ll glance away for what feels like a second, and before you know it, it will be 2017.  The only thing you’ll be kicking is yourself –wondering where did the time go?!

Jump start your goals now!  I want you to Step Out on Faith and Tweet @RestyledMom, to let me know how you are going to #ShineIn2016.  Don’t just bring in 2016.  Come in already Shining!
