I began by sending positive energy to the universe thus creating what I call my B&B Center. Not a Bed & Breakfast, well maybe some day,however for now,my B&B Center is for Bills & Blogging.
Here are a few steps I took to start 2011 with an "intention" for newness, freshness, money management, organization, lightness , crafts and simplicity.
Here are the items in my home office to help motivate and energize me ....
Arts & Craft Book
To Do List
I figured getting check books representing our plight for better money management and future spending/saving endeavors would best symbolize our venture. I chose the SUPERMAN & Pebbles check books and cover. My nick name growing up was "Pebbles". With these checks I am reminded of my childhood where my money blue print was formed and took years to formulate correctly.The Superman is for Tito who loves Superman and has really done a "super" job learning the value of money. When we first met he actually didn't know the difference between a debit and credit card. He was brought up with a different set of money values hence the old adage "opposites" attract. Isn't that with most couples? It took many years to get where we are today. If we can do it, believe me any other couple out there can do it!
The Piggy bank next to the calculator represents a combination of savings and a family vacation. It's a cute Piggy with dream vacation spots handwritten in chalk ranging from Florida,England,Paris, Hollywood & New York.
The Red Candle on the top left,represents the fire in my belly to really make these resolutions come true.
I placed my inspirational books on Organizing and Arts& Crafts near the computer to move the energy flow.
The lamp represents the light I am asking God to shine in me,around me and out to the Universe.
Here is my NEW YEARS Resolution almost brought to life,not just on paper (take note of my "TO DO LIST " on the bottom left.
A BLANK SHEET TO FILL WITH MOMENTS THAT TAKE MY BREATHE AWAY.
