End of Year Review 2019

The end of a decade has finally reached us. It is time to think ahead and imagine what the next 10 years will have. Personally, I am glad to say goodbye to the last 10 years. I feel positive and excited about the coming decade in all aspects of my life. From physical and mental health to implementing the starting point of making my dreams a reality!

First things first, let's review my 2019 vision board.

On paper, I was about 50% successful this year in accomplishing my goals. The ones I accomplished are:

- Peace of Heart
- Reading
- Being Active
- Determine Blog Content
- Creative Writing

I'm not too disappointed by not completing my whole list, but I did put in some effort. I'd still like to work on them so I'll be including these when making decisions for the new year.

- Homemade Meals
- Peace of Mind
- Morning Rituals
- Journaling
- Become Healthier

2o2o Vision Board

I decided to take a different approach this year with my vision board. In previous years, each block had a certain representation of what I wanted to address that year. Last year was titled “Human Defined” and though I didn’t display that via my blog, I did accomplish quite a bit in my personal life. I feel that the foundations of mental peace have been established and now it’s time to grow from it.
