new year//new project

Happy New Year Friends!!! I hope 2018 brings so much happiness and love into your life! I have learned a lot about myself this past year, and something I have realized is how much what I surround myself with directly influences me. I have a wall in my room filled with signs and sayings of things that motivate me or just make me smile, and when I walk past it each day, it is an instant reminder to be the best I can be. They remind me to smile, and be a source of light in a world that can sometimes seem so dark.

I have always been infatuated with inspiration boards, but have never really created them. I loved the idea, but thought that they took too much time and weren’t practical to create often. Since this is the start of the new year, I have created my version of an inspiration board, and plan to update it on the first of every month to reflect goals, aspirations, or just images that make me happy.

I received this hanging, heart cork board for Valentines day, and I had a few quotes and some pictures on it, but I think this provides the perfect base for my inspiration board. I wanted to keep it very simple so that it was easy to alter each month. I cut images out of magazines and found a quote out of a book that I placed together and hung on this cork board. When I see it, I smile.

 It is filled with things that motivate me and make me happy. If every single person created an inspiration board, I would love to see the variety in each one, because I truly believe there is so much power in that fact that people are motivated by different things- it makes our population so diverse and complex.

 

 

So although my cork board for this month is filled with just a few things that make me happy: a bit of fashion, pink, ice cream, etc., I hope this inspires you to fill a board with what makes YOU happy. I plan to share my future cork boards each month so you can see the new things I am inspired by, and I hope that every time you walk by your inspiration board, you’ll smile too.

 

Enjoy your January and the fresh start a new year presents!

xoxo,

Anna
