Techniques to Start the Year on a Positive Note

So let's grab our coloring books, markers, and some dope tunes, and let's get in the zone!

Alright, let's start with one of my all-time faves: coloring gratitude pages. Gratitude is like the ultimate tool for attracting abundance and positivity, and coloring those gratitude pages is like taking it to the next level, feel me? As we color each section, we can think about all the things we're grateful for. Family, friends, our health, the roof over our heads—whatever it is, let's express gratitude for it and soak up all that good energy.

Next up, we've got my secret weapon for staying present and focused: mandala coloring. Mandala designs are like little worlds of intricate patterns and shapes, and you just can't help but be drawn into them. As we color each section, let's focus on the present moment and clear our minds of any distractions. It's like meditation, but way more fun and colorful!

Now, let's add some urban slang to our coloring game, because why not? We can use slang like "Stay fresh" or "Keep it 100" or whatever slang speaks to our souls—it's all about doing us, and expressing our unique personalities in our artwork. And if someone doesn't get it, well, that's their loss.

Another technique I love is creating vision board pages, but with a twist. Instead of just cutting and pasting images onto the page, we can draw and color them ourselves. So if our goal is to travel more, we can draw a little plane (or color it if we don't trust our drawing skills) and add some cute little clouds and a suitcase. It's like adding our own flavor to our vision board, and it helps us connect more deeply with our goals.

Oh, and speaking of goals, let's not forget about affirmations. As we color, we can repeat some affirmations that align with our 2024 resolutions. For example, if our goal is to be more confident, we can repeat affirmations like "I am confident and capable" or "I am worthy of success." It's all about rewiring our minds for positivity and success, and coloring makes it even more fun and powerful.

And if we're feeling adventurous, we can try some mixed media coloring. It's like combining different art forms, and the result is usually pretty epic. We can add some glitter, or maybe some fabric, or even some mini pom poms if we're feeling extra funky. The point is to make our coloring experience as unique and creative as we are.

And here's the kicker, my coloring comrades: it's not just about the end result, it's about enjoying the process. So what if we accidentally colored outside the lines, or if our drawing skills aren't Picasso-level? It's not about being perfect, it's about letting go of any expectations and just having fun with our coloring books. Each stroke of color is an expression of who we are, so let's make it count.

Now, let's get real for a sec. The new year can be pretty overwhelming, with all the pressure to make resolutions and change our lives in some grand, meaningful way. But here's the thing: we don't have to have it all figured out right now. It's okay to take it one day at a time, one coloring page at a time. The point is to stay focused on what we want, and let our coloring books be a reminder of our goals and intentions.

So, my coloring book squad, let's make 2024 the year of intentional coloring and mindful vibes. Let's color our way to abundance and success, and stay true to who we are. Let's express ourselves through our urban slang, our unique artistic styles, and our badass affirmations. And let's never forget that each stroke of color is a step closer to the life we want.

As we welcome this new year, let's trust the process, embrace the journey, and let our coloring books guide us to greatness. Stay lit, my coloring fam, and let's crush those 2024 resolutions like the legends we are!
