Have You Set Your Goals for February?


It’s that time again – time to create your monthly vision board and goals.

This ritual has become a valued moment of self-reflection for me each month, and the collages, which I create directly in my planner, become touchstones for how I want to feel throughout the month. I check in with the image almost every day, and it helps me to stay focused on my most important goals, and to keep my mood positive and my actions aligned with my greater vision for my life. If you’d like to learn more about my process and how to make a goals collage yourself, read this post. If you’d like to see my monthly goals collages over the years, go here.

As one of my favourite astrologers said, “For 2016, February is the new January!” I know I’m not the only one who spent January feeling just a little bit stuck in the mud. But as the calendar shifted, my mood lifted, and I feel ready now to jump in to 2016 with both feet.

What are you doing to jump-start your creativity this year? I’m back to my daily art journaling practice, focusing mostly on pen and ink and watercolour illustrations, and infatuated as always with food illustration. To keep myself accountable I’m following along with a couple of art journaling challenges: weekly challenges from Journal 52, and daily drawings with the #cbdrawadaychallenge. Fun!

Let me know in the comments what you are doing to indulge your creativity in the new year.
