Creating a vision board is one of my many self care practices. It is this cutting and pasting that I slow down and become more centered. Day to day life tends to have me running at a quick pace but when I sit down in front a stack of magazines my energy shifts and I am ready to explore.
When I sat down to create this vision board I had the intention and focus of 2016 and how I want it to look and feel for me. What came together on the paper surprised me. There was more than one image of a beach and women gathered together. A long table inviting others to sit, break bread, and share their stories. Beautiful exploration. And an invitation to change your story and enjoy the ride.
Everything about this vision board feels comforting and aligned. I know that I want to dig deeper into connection; not just through the computer but in person as well. It is time to step away from the screen and see each others faces. The beach is my sacred space. It heals me and fills me up. And finding the magic and sparkle in my own backyard is something I am really looking forward to as we continue to take steps towards building.
This vision board is a road map for me. Inspiring me to take those steps forward, step out of my comfort zone, and leap! I have chosen to hang it in my kitchen so that I can look at it every single say. I want to be reminded of the dreams I have in my heart so that I can take the small steps in making them come true.
Have you ever created a vision board? They are really simple to do. Grab a stack of magazines, any ones will do. Set an intention for what you want to vision. Then flip through the magazines and cut out the images and words that are aligned with that intention. Do not labor over each image, let your heart do the deciding. Some things may surprise you but go with it. Once you have all of your images cut out, past them down onto a pieces of paper and hang it up where you can see it each day. This visual reminder will help you set your wheels in motion. Go ahead .... see what dreams emerge for you!
