THE WEEK THAT WAS
I had an absolute blast during my week of congruent self discovery – I hope you did too if you were playing along. I definitely have a clearer idea of the things that I value most and would like to focus on in the next few months. I know how I’d like to spend my time and energy and where my strengths lie.
Living a well-aligned life is always going to be a work in progress, but it certainly helps when you sit down and figure out a little bit about who you are, what you want out of life and how you want to get there. Often we think we know ourselves relatively well, but will have our minds blown when we really explore what is going on inside those gorgeous minds and what satisfies and nurtures us deep down.
But Kim, it’s already the end of January, why bother doing vision boards now? I know, I know, I’m a little behind the times but I think any day is a good enough day to get inspired and piece images together that will get the creative juices pumping and your motivation flying!
I was really blown away by this stunner of a vision board put together by Rach of In Spaces Between and longed for the day when I’d have Photoshop and be able to use it to create something (almost) as gorgeous. Well kids, I have Photoshop Elements (the poor woman’s Photoshop) and have spent a number of hours working out how to use different bits and pieces.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a very visual person. I like to be able to see what I’d like to achieve/create in front of me, so I have a clear picture of what I’m aiming for and what I’ll have to do to get there. Sometimes it is as easy as believing in yourself and focusing positive energy on your hopes and dreams. I’m a little ‘new age-y’ when it comes to things like affirmations and manifesting your desires.
I’d like to work on a handful of vision boards – 2012 goals and affirmations, health and wellbeing, career and one consisting of lovely spaces.
Here’s my first attempt: a Summer Vision Board – what do you think?
Have you got a beautiful vision board you’d like to share? Add the link in the comments!
