This is our fourth year of doing our popular Casual Resolutions Goal Setting Kit. Every year it’s updated with new ideas and inspiration. This year’s is extra special and I’m quite proud of it. If I’m honest, I create these for myself. Then I share them with you. This past year has been particularly challenging for me so I really needed some inspiration and perspective in order to take what I learned and move forward into the future with hope and happiness! This little kit helps do that without creating a sense of stress or urgency… which I don’t know about you, but I want less of that in my life. I don’t believe we need another “list” of stuff to try and get done. We need things that inspire us in joy to make positive choices in a way we can handle it. Even if you decide to do something and don’t do… no guilt allowed! Life is ever changing as are our needs and capabilities. We need to do what we can and forget about the rest.
I’m inserting a tag line for this and future years. This year’s is “Create a Life You Love”. This year we also have two quotes instead of just one. The first is one that I found particularly empowering for myself: “She created a life she loved.” (And a “he” version.) The second is by Emerson: “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” Both embrace self-empowerment. We create the life we want and hopefully this little kit will help you on that journey in some way.
This fun kit has all you need to get you going on your goal setting. You can punch holes in the appropriate pages and place them in a thin binder or put it in a colorful folder. You can also stick the calendar on the fridge or wherever you like.
Our kit has printables to keep your goals fun and stress free! Remember: The goal setting choices you make are things you’d like to accomplish during the year. Those might change as the year progresses or you simply might not accomplish some at the end. If that’s the case, no big deal. Feel good about what you do accomplish and let the rest go, because there’s always next year! Also, feel free to change goals or add more when needed. We tried to find unique ones for our kit as everyone know the standards.
If you didn’t grab this already our Motivational Quote Kit with ten free quotes and a DIY display stand DIY might be fun to make for added inspiration. Also check out our Burning Bowl Ceremony post and Spicy Black-Eyed Peas A Delicious Bit of Luck. The start of a new year is also a great time to start a Family Time Capsule.
