One of the last classes I took for my college degree was Senior Thesis. The theme for the class was “A Meaningful Life”. I did quite a bit of reading and wrote self-reflection papers on where I am today and where I want to be. One of the big take-a-ways, was to live in the prelist month, stay in the present moment and treasure that instead of looking ahead in anticipation or looking back at the memories. I read Cheryl Richardson’s The Art of Extreme Self-Care while away and learned that no matter how busy life becomes, I need to make time for me. With that said, we are blessed to have family and friends in our lives and very fortunate to be able to travel to spend time with them.
One of the things that I will be doing over the holidays is to take time to reflect back on my 2015 goals to see how I did. Then I will assess where I am today where I want to be tomorrow. Yes, I always want to accomplish a lot and I have to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the present.
One of the things I do every year during my goal setting time is to create a vision board to actually see my life in pictures. This helps me to have a visual reminder for what I want to achieve.
What do you want to accomplish in 2016? Let me know your personal financial goals, so that I may be able to help you achieve them.
