I have just completed my new vision board. It is ready to be put on the wall of my
personal office once I get home from Malta.
A vision board helps me to stay focused on what is important
in my life. It helps to give me
direction and it is where my dreams first see the light of day.
When I begin the process (which normally takes a few weeks)
it always feels like goal setting, which I did many years ago in the corporate
scene. But then as I start to make the
vision I hold for my life part of my meditation and as I start to collect
pictures and sayings from magazines, the process softens and bends and begins
to go in unexpected directions.
Normally when I make a new vision board I take the old one
down from the wall but 3 years ago my vision board was about the people in my
life and in history who have inspired me and why. That board is still on the wall and all new ones are put beside
it as these people continue to inspire me to live my best life.
Some of my vision boards have lasted months and some have
lasted years. But the process of
acknowledging I need a new vision, of creating a new board and letting go of
the old one is always a great period of personal growth for me.
