Have you got a list started? If not, now is the time to start. In fact, now is my affirmation and resolution for 2012.
No big lists for me this year. No other word best encapsulates energy, exigency, and urgency as now. No lofty goals. No unmet expectations. Now is critical. If we can muster every bit of effort on what we are doing now, then everything to follow is a whopping sum of our best efforts and therefore the best outcome. Work hard now, reap success to come. Workout now, ripped biceps to come. So make and do, and make do — now. It is so simple!
And just as simple is the effort to make these digital magnets for your new year affirmations and resolutions, should you want to expand your list now (apart from “now”).
I spent $5 on five rolls of 1/2″ adhesive magnet strips at the dollar store, each roll being 24″ long. With just $5 and a bit of glitter from my craft drawer, I was able to make fifty-five 2″ strips and ten 1″ strips to make a set of digital magnets that can make sufficient characters on the fridge or whiteboard.
Just cut the magnet strips into 2″ strips, then make a few 1″ strips. Cut each end into a point. Then peel the adhesive backing and dip into glitter for a glow.
Arrange on the fridge or whiteboard with words and phrases that will remind you of what’s most important this year! Make those resolutions stick (if not for the remainder of the year, then at least on your fridge)!
