I hope you are experiencing beautiful weather wherever you are. The last couple of days here have been absolutely amazing. Lots of sunshine, a warm breeze, blossoming flowers and singing birds. What more could you ask for? It’s just perfect.
As you can tell, I love this time of year.
For me, Spring represents forward movement. It’s truly the season I experience intense creative bursts of energy. It is also the time I seem to make most of those important life-changing decisions. And based on my past, it also appears to be the time of year I take the most risks.
And honestly after years of writing in a journal and keeping copious notes, I have found Spring time to be the best time to sit down and reevaluate my goals. My priorities. And to realign myself, if necessary.
So yesterday, I sat down with a pad of paper and wrote this at the top of the page:
What is it I really need this season? For the rest of the year?
I know, it sounds corny but for me this is very effective. It allows me to see what I have been neglecting, gives me the opportunity to reexamine my goals and dreams and helps me fine tune my needs and wants so I can put myself into action.
What I typically do is breakdown my life into 6 main categories. Below you find the categories in bold and then you will see some of the ideas or actions I plan on implementing this season and this year.
Note: This is not my exhaustive list nor have I included how I break down each goal if necessary. Hey, what can I say? A girl has gotta keep some secrets to herself. 🙂

So, what would be on your list? In each of your categories? I would love to hear them.
I was once told the more people you share your goals, ideas, and dreams with the more likely they will come to fruition. So let me hear them!
