What is something you want to work on this year? What are some agreements you want to make with yourself?
For me, I agree to be gentle with myself and take one moment at a time. I choose peace and prioritize my health; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I want to work on feeling good about positive things happening to me and believing I deserve them when they happen. I believe in greatness for myself. I’ve worked so hard to make it this far.

The words that are themes for me this year, in 2022, are “intuition” and “boundaries.
As I actualize myself this year in confidence and freedom, I will listen and pay attention to my needs, wants, desires and intuition. I step forward with better understanding of my thoughts, behaviors, habits and growth. I continuously attract what is for my highest good and take opportunities that are best for me.
I am kind to myself as I navigate through tough emotions like frustration, shame, guilt and anger and I do so with grace and compassion for myself.
I grow in awareness of how to create safe and comfortable spaces for myself and do so regularly.
I am worthy of love and balance. I create the reality I deserve.
I welcome peace every morning. I am ready for each day.
Set a new year intention:
What word or words are your themes for 2022?
What affirmation, mantra, or agreement can you create and practice to help you to remember and stick to your intention?

Here are some details for the event:
Title My Goals and Agreements
Description “My Goals and Agreements” is a creative and fun event focused on reflecting on ourselves, our goals, and what we see for our year ahead. Starting with an ice breaker, we will sketch an image and write about an accomplishment we are proud of ourselves for achieving. The main activity will then be to trace around our hand and next to each finger write either a goal we want to set, an agreement we want to make with ourselves or an affirmation/mantra we want to remember this year. Lastly, we will close by sharing our works of art.
Materials Paper, writing utensils (pen, pencil, markers, or crayons).
As we move forward toward the end of the year into a new year, let’s reflect on all we’ve accomplished and the goals we’ve set. Getting to this point is nothing short of amazing. I’m so proud of my Pencil Case family. With celebrating wins and the creation of new goals also comes the things we want to leave behind us. The things that we don’t want to carry around anymore. What do you want to let go of? What do you want to leave in 2021?
Here is a list of what I want to leave in 2021:
The phrase ”I can’t”.
Any low-frequency thoughts that limit my power and potential.
Not speaking up for myself or my needs.

You deserve the best love, support, relationships, friendships, and experiences. You deserve abundance, wealth, and opportunities. You deserve to treat yourself with kindness and love. You deserve growth. You deserve peace. You deserve to find communities that understand you. You deserve to be accepted. Your voice deserves to be heard.
Note: This can be a dish you like to eat, cook, bake, prepare for others, or part of a family recipe. Share as many yummy dishes as you would like. If it’s a cultural dish, feel free to also let us know what ingredients are in the dish.
My favorite dish or meal is chicken with rice and beans. I also really enjoy eating a berries bowl with bananas especially with my breakfast!
