I have to admit I’m the worse at making new friends. Once I have a solid group of friends, I just don’t feel the need for more (that’s so selfish and self-absorbed. I’m working on it, guys). But moving to a new city has taught me that there are always people God wants to use to expand your life. Our motto should be, “There’s always room for more”, instead of “I don’t need the extra drama”. This Galentine’s Day is the perfect time to water those new found friendships by giving them a small gift as a gesture of your appreciation.
Nothing says I care like a handwritten note. And Galentine’s Day is the perfect time to send the gals in your life a note letting them know you care. It’s a good time to reach out to those friends you miss and haven’t heard from in a while. Snail mail shows you went the extra mile. You never know what a little letter can do to make someone’s day or make your relationship stronger.

us forget to dream, to have fun, to get creative, and to build our future. Being
present is necessary. Being responsible is necessary.
But once in a while, it’s good to become a kid again. Break out the glue, scissors, and glitter! Let’s imagine and pray over the goals and dreams God has placed in our hearts.
For some reason, when we start seeing it and creating it and putting it on paper (or board in this case), these things start to seem possible. What we’re basically doing with this creative exercise is fanning into flame the gift of God, which He has given to each and every one of us (2 Timothy 1:6-7).
So, what do you need to create a Vision Board for 2019? Very
Ribbon, glitter, fabric, anything you can find at home that inspires you
Arrange all the inspiration, printouts, verses, etc. on your board
Place it in a space where you can see it every day.
Bonus: brew a cup of coffee, pick your favorite mug, sip on it while creating. This is just to set the mood 😉 Some music may help too.
The most important thing is to be honest with yourself. Ask
yourself what you want 2019 to look like. Maybe that means fitting into an old
pair of jeans. Maybe it means finally having the courage to get that haircut.
Maybe it means starting a business (what does that look like?). Maybe it means
starting a family. Or maybe it’s refurnishing and designing a room in your
Whatever you see, whatever you’ve written down as goals, translate them into pictures and visuals, and put them on your board.
