The year of pause has gifted us with so much opportunity for processing: our relationships, self-love, inner child, friendships, and values. We all felt the rollercoaster of emotions, because there was no other choice but to surrender and let go.
A couple of weeks ago, I hosted an online goal-setting & planning session with some creatives that I worked with/mentored this year. Normally, I start the goal-setting session by looking back on the previous year. This time, I tried to make it focus on the present, and to practice the art of honoring ourselves and where we are at.
Sharing with you here the condensed version of the planning process we did at the workshop!
THE 2021 PLAN
The 2021 Plan starts with a few prompts to ensure that your goals are aligned with your truest self, and end with notes or prayers that you want to remember for the rest of the year. Under Plans & Prayers, I recommend listing down aspects of your life/revenue streams/personal projects that you want to continue and start.
On the right side of the page is a blank calendar to plot out personal deadlines and targets.
the 2021 CALENDAR
Happy to share that I collaborated with Primex Printers and IFEX on this Limited Edition 2021 Desk Calendar. It features 12 of my watercolored illustrations and patterns, paired with life lessons that plants teach us:
Grow as much as you can—there are no limits. Be happy by being yourself. Small growth is still growth. Move at your own pace. Weird is wonderful. Take only what you need in order to thrive. Your companions matter. Give as much as you can. Breathe in and purify. Help others, heal others. Find the light. Be the light.
