December, 2014 2 Comments Career, Cover Stories, Family, My Gratitude Journal

Just finished creating our family dream board for 2015. Thank you Roger James Hamilton for the awesome idea! It was so much fun to share as a family what we want to achieve in the coming year. We spent the first few minutes sharing what we were grateful for in 2014 and then created the dream board.

If this is something you and your family would like to try, this is the simple process: Get pens and paints and start writing your dreams for 2015 on the board. Rotate the paper 90 degrees every 5 mins X 4 times so that in 20 mins all your dreams are mixed up together. You then video record what each person put down and review that at the end of the year (or quarterly if you like) to see how much of it was achieved. It’s great fun to do and share with each other.

Thank you to everyone that contributed to making 2014 an awesome year for me. Contrary to the belief that ‘women do not support each other’ I have seen lots of genuine support amongst women and have received loads of love this year from women in Zambia and across Africa, Crystal Circle, Girl Effect Accelerator, the Zoona divas and all the wonderful women across the globe that sent me messages of support. To you all I say thank you and God bless.

A big thank you also to the wonderful men in my life; my husband Sandras, my sons Mwenda and Mwai, my dad Andrew, the Zoona Men and all the awesome men in Zambia and around the world who’ve given me support. Let’s rock 2015!

    Hi Lelemba, thank you so much for this great idea. It’s the beginning of the year 2017 and as usual i enter it with many mixed feeling of anxiety and fear to face the coming year. So many decisions to make and on top of that unfulfilled in what i do. T the beginning of every year i tend to get anxious and feel a little overwhelmed at the prospect of going though another year. But i have realised that the anxiety is probably as a result of not achieving some of the things i should have because i simply wasted time on things not important to fill my time. So entering the new year just reminds me of what i have lost out on which i cant get back. Reading about your vision board makes me feel that i didn’t achieve much because i didn’t PLAN for the year! Light bulb moment here!! woop woop!!! Living your best life and achieving your goals requires you to plan and have a vision and a road map of how to get to where you want to be…and that means literally writing it down and giving yourself a check list to measure your progress and achievements…ummm why i am preaching to the guru herself?…errr…anyway, my mind is exploding with ideas that me and my son though only 2 can use to get started with our vision board… I have so much to be grateful for. Looking forward to creating wonderful memories for me and my son and living our best lives ever.
