Have you ever heard of a vision board? I’m watching a movie and there’s an interesting story going on. There is a woman in the movie who is at a place in her life where she has reached the pinnacle of happiness.
Meanwhile, her friend is having trouble figuring out what her happiness would look like, and therefore, can’t make it happen.
The woman lets her in on a little secret.
“The “vision board.”
If you drew or painted your personal vision of happiness, what would it look like? If you’re like me and can’t draw or paint, you could cut out pictures and paste them on a poster board.
I don’t think you are ever too old to have a vision board. Things that create your vision of happiness probably change over time. In fact, the older you are, the more important a vision board might be. Just going through the exercise will probably help you see where you’re spending your time and energy.
Would the result surprise you? Would your vision of happiness have too many or too few dreams represented.
I already know I’m going to have to pare down some. I’ll need to prioritize about fifty things I really want to do. I’ve been told by professionals that I go off on too many tangents. I can never quite wrap up all the things I start.
Wow!..I’m already having visions of what I want on my board.
Yes!…I’m going to create my own vision board. I’ll ponder it until tomorrow afternoon and then I’ll make one. Are my dreams worthy? Are they realistic and achievable? (I’ll leave singing off.)
I’m not lying Pinocchio!
What do I need to do to make my dreams come true?
I have a lot to think about. I’ll show you my masterpiece when its completed. We might all be surprised. That is if I finish it!
Too bad I got sidetracked and didn’t watch the rest of the movie. Does anyone know how it ended?
