A New Year's Vision: 2022

 Happy New Year friends!

Resolutions have become oddly polarizing, haven't they? People either love them or hate them. I happen to love them. This comes as no surprise since I live for a good plan and checklist!

A few years ago, I started to keep the below template in Google Sheets and fill out a new one at the beginning of each year. I set aside a few hours of complete silence to dig deep into what my vision is for the year ahead and after I get it down I set a reminder for the beginning of each month to read through it again. I've found this so helpful in keeping my priorities and heart in line with the vision I have for the year. I've edited/left off the more personal ones, but below is my vision for 2022.

P.S. If you don't utilize Google Sheets yet, the app/desktop compatibility are a game changer. I keep my whole life organized by these sheets!
