It’s THAT Time of Year Again! Are You Ready?!



Every year I spend the week after Christmas creating my goals and vision board for the upcoming year. I’m getting ready as we speak (type) and I thought I would check in with you to see if you are planning on any type of goal setting ritual for the end of the year?

I think vision boards and goal setting (and dreaming) are essential to our life! And what a better time to begin; then the last week of the year?

So what does my year-end ritual look like? For the last couple of years it has involved a little more than just setting the goals to paper and creating my vision board. I will let you in on my secret yearly ritual…..

First I retrieve my present year list from my special box! (more on that later) I spend the last 2 weeks of the year writing down what I accomplished in this last year. Then I write those things I did not carry out or any other thing that did not give me pleasure in the past year. My purpose of adding the things that did not please me? Because I am going to do a releasing ceremony!  So here is what I do:

I take time with these lists, especially, for now, the less than pleasing items on the list.  Why? Because I am going to release them from my life and literally burn the list.  I pray over everything on the list, I thank God for the experiences and anything I may have learned from them. I accept that they happened,whatever that means, and I ask God to take it from here so that I can no longer think about them. And I burn the list and let go.  And I DO NOT look back! If you let it go;then let it go! And the burning part of my ritual happens on New Years eve; as close to midnight as I can get it!

After I have let go of the past years not so pleasing experiences; then I am ready to move into next years goals.  OH and I take the list of pleasing experiences and goals met from this last year and put them back into my “vision” box! ( there it is!)   This is a pretty box filled with my miracles!  Goals set and reached. My box is kept on my bedroom dresser and honestly I open it once a year!

Now I am ready to set next years goals and start on that vision board! These can be (and should be) any type of goal; whether dreaming or set in stone business goals, I write them down!  I put them in my pretty box to await next years ritual! If I need a reminder I can look in the box but for me, I don’t have to, because my vision board says it all! I can take one look at it and be reminded of every goal and dream I have set!

There you have it! My special year end routine!  What about you? Do you have a special routine you do to get started on the right foot each year?

As usual I would love to hear from you!


I’m talking to YOU!



“Maybe what you’re praying about is too small. Maybe God has something much better and He loves you so much that He won’t answer that small prayer.” ~Joel Osteen Ministries

One of my great pleasures in life is talking to other people about their struggles,hopes,dreams, etc…..

This blog gives me that opportunity! People reach out to me, sometimes daily, and I’m always humbled by the opportunity to talk with them about these things.

Recently I spoke to you….and you touched my heart. You have been on my mind this morning!

So when I saw this; I knew it was for you!  I know you will recognize it as your truth!

Bless you and have a good day!

And remember to PRAY BIG!

Always Grateful! ~Christine

Dream BIG!

All our dreams can come true-if we have the courage to pursue them.

~ Walt Disney

We all have dreams, but I think too many of us censor our dreams just as we censor our lives.

I wish we could all remember the dreams we dreamed as a child and then have the courage to live them.

Do not limit yourself! Do not be afraid! Never listen to what others say…as a matter of fact, don’t tell others what your dreams are if there is any doubt that they will encourage you! You need encouragement!  You do not have to share your dreams with anyone but God for them to come true!

Dare to dream big!
