Happy New Year from a BUSY Bee

Many people watched the ball drop and started making their New Year Resolutions.  I have not made resolutions in awhile.. as they last me all of January if I am lucky.  What I have started doing the first of the year is creating a vision board.  My husband and I usually create a goal board before school starts (as this is how my years run)

Vision board 2016

I have lots of dreams this year.  My biggest dream is to get to Disney World in August!  But I really want to be more present in what I am doing.  I also have discovered that I am one that stays busy (I mean.. I already knew this.. but I am just putting it out there).  I LOVE being busy (much to the disdain of my husband sometimes.. I mean he loves me.. but I do stay busy!)

So, am I changing my schedule.. NOPE! I am even starting another Masters in a few weeks (which I am oh so very excited about!) I am going to be busy with a purpose.  In passing conversation people will often ask me (as I do the same to them) how you are you doing.  I usually answer with.. there are not enough hours in the day.  But there are enough hours.  We all have the same amount of hours.  I am going to change my answer.  I am going to be able to give specific answers to what I am working on or what I am currently into.  I have plenty of hours in the day to do the things that I want to do.  

My vision for this year- to be busy.. but be happy about what I am busy with.. and to be a champion for myself and for those around me. I want to read more.. I am going to journal every day.. and I am going to be more present when I am with the company of my friends.  I am going to enjoy life and continue to do those activities that make me busy... but also make my heart happy.

I look forward to an exciting 2016 with lots of new adventures and many more dreams.

Cheers to a New Year with the BUSY Bee!


  1. I love your change in response to "What are you doing?" That's a much more thoughtful response. I also like that your contemplating mindfulness; it's something I've been working on for the last couple of years. (I type this as I watch TV with seven different tabs open.<--irony?)

    You are, as always, an inspiration.

  2. On behalf of myself and my research paper writing assistance office colleagues, my hearty belated New year wishes to you all. In this fast moving world, all the people are wishing that all the people in the world should be fine on only one day which is noting but the new year. The very main reason is, on remaining days, they are concentrating in earning more money in a very short period of time. So, let us be happy forever and also please make all the people around us to be happy forever.
