I did a thing this week. I made a vision board to show what it is I wanted my life to look like. I actually used a notebook that I always have with me so I could keep looking at it as often as I wanted.
I had heard of people making these before. Targets and motivations to strive for and that emphasize the power of the mind. The photo above was one of the photos I chose. I won’t share the rest here…yet. Maybe never. I am not sure.
What I do know is how happy I am to have used this photo and then realized that I am living this part of my vision board out loud; in present time. So many times I hear people tell me they wish they wrote, or they want to write, or they do write but they won’t put it out anywhere in the world. I am proud that I do. I am proud that in this vision, my writing is not just a vision. Its not just a wish. Its not a someday if I weren’t so busy. I am a mother of 4 (3 of whom are completely dependent), I work part time at my children’s school, I work at my husband’s business, I have 2 children in travel sports that we have 5 days a week and 2 times each day of the weekend. Our little Spicy is a swimmer so that is sucking up time. I also run a part time online business plus I run a household….Can I get an Amen to that? Bills, laundry, dinners, all lunches packed, groceries, cleaning, etc. I get busy. Believe me! Yet, I still find time to be what I believe God calls me to be. A writer. Who actually writes.
I encourage all of you to create your own vision board. A tangible one is best. One you can craft and hold and see each day. BUT, if you are even too busy for that, make one on Pinterest. Start making a plan today for what you say you want. Have your vision become reality. It is empowering. And don’t we all just want to feel a little stronger in our own skin?
