Full disclosure: this is not my original idea whatsoever, I got it from Aileen of lavendaire.com on her Youtube channel which you can find here.
But even if it isn’t my original idea, I really thought that it was a good one. So I wanted to do it myself and show y’all how to do it too! With this new year and all the possibilities before us, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to map out what I wanted this year to look like. Some of these things that I put on my Future Self side may not entirely come true, but I agree with Aileen that putting what you want down in writing is a good idea. I also thought that her idea of comparing it to who your Current Self is would be beneficial to committing to the change needed to get where you want to go.
So I’ve attached a picture of what my Current Self vs. Future Self looks like in my 2018 Motivation Journal below. If you want to know any further details about what this exercise is and how it should go, I recommend that you click the link I have to Aileen’s video and check it out!
This is a short little post, so I’ve included it with the post about New Year’s resolutions, so today you get two for one, Happy Holidays. 🙂
Over and Out,
(P.S. I know the doodles of myself aren’t fantastic, but they’re just doodles, you can make yours as realistic as you want)
