Do YOU have a vision? Well, of course you do and a great mind like yours can be enhanced by creating a vision board! I made my first one over 15 years ago (yes, I still have it!) and since that time I've been a believer. Over the years, however, all activity stopped. Each of us have "ebbs and flows" that require us to renew the practices that help to live our BEST lives; the most important thing to remember is to not get down on yourself and simply focus on moving ahead. Fast forward to 2015, I was invited to my girlfriend Sharon's home for a vision board party. I rally had a blast! She provided great food, art supplies, and a helpful Prezi tutorial. Ultimately, we learned how to create our own creative "dream" masterpiece. I plopped down right in front of her wood-burning fireplace and went to work until I was finished and my back hurt (note to self- sit with your back supported next time.) That day, I not only walked away with a tangible reminder to mediate on throughout the year but also an experience that renewed my soul.
This year, another invite by Sharon appeared via text. The event? Vision Board 2016!! With a New Year already in full swing, reluctance set in at the thought of adding yet another thing to the calendar. I pondered, waited, delayed, and hesitated but in the end, I went! So many special people came with their personal stories to share. More good food, same supplies, add in a great playlist with the same general seating by the fireplace (but with my back supported against the couch this time). I once again found my groove and once again, glad I came.
Now here's the BIG question, what's come true? Glad you asked:
Based on what has come to fruition, I've learned to: be specific, a BIGGER THINKER, creative, and to know that the sky is the limit! Complete your board in one sitting, if possible, and once you've created it, display it somewhere you'll see it everyday. If you travel often, take a pic and use it as your screensaver. Most of all, have fun! This experience is best when spent with friends (and a glass of wine or refreshing spritzer).
What does this all mean? Ultimately, it needs to make sense for you. Hopefully my sharing will inspire you to truly dig deeper for what you really want.
