Well hello. It is nearly a year since I created my first ever Vision Board.
I thought I would revisit it now, and this time share a photograph of it. I felt oddly unable to expose the images I had chosen at the time. I’m not sure why, other than the images are subtle indicators of what was important to me and perhaps I was afraid of what it said.
Now, after nearly a year of living with the pictures, I feel very much at home with them and am happy to share my vision.
Since completing the board we have been off on a tropical holiday, but that really isn’t new. I have also been working, on and off, at getting back into regular exercise. So I can’t say that the board has created anything *new* in my life, but I can say that I feel happy every time I look at it. It provides a nice, uplifting visual reinforcement when I take the time out to look at the images.
It has also spurred me into evaluating what new things come in to my life. It helped me make a decision that whatever things I purchased from then on needed to be things of beauty and quality*. I decided that I did not want to be surrounded by lots of okay things any more, the compromises for whatever reason, be it cost or availability or something else. This has been rather freeing. If I don’t love it, it doesn’t get in the house any more.
I’ve found it to be a form of self-care and if things are more expensive, then we just have to save longer and get them when the money is available. That’s just the way of it. At least we are not bringing more compromises and lesser things into our lives. And frankly, that is a very good thing.
How about you? Have you done a vision board yet? If you have, what did it teach you about yourself?
* as I define them, of course.
