Set up a New Year project you can do with your kids. It's a great way for them to learn about goal setting and will also stimulate them creatively. Being intentional is a practice that benefits from constant reminding and updating. Get each member of the family to do this together; you'll be surprised at what you learn about each other. Firstly, get some supplies, you could go to a stationery shop ' we went to Merrypak in Ndabeni in Cape Town, they have all the coloured pencils, crayons, stickers, glue, tinsel, ribbon and everything you could ever dream of putting on your board. They also sell pinboards.
Then collect a pile of old magazines and have a pair of scissors ready.
Get your kids to think up some dreams - how they want their lives to be - specific things they would love to do or achieve. If you imagine a perfect day in a perfect life, you will get a good idea of what to include. Remind them that in vision land there are no obstacles or hindrances. Get them to decorate their vision boards with pictures and reminders of everything they want. By hanging up their visions boards in their rooms, they will be able to remember and focus on their desires and in that way bring them into being.
Merrypak is at 45 Morningside Road, Ndabeni, Cape Town, South Africa www.merrypak.co.za 021 531-2244
