I think the vision board bonanza inspired my mom. She gave me this the other day and said, “This made me think of you. It’s a different kind of vision board.”
I love it. Immediately, I positioned it in my bedroom where I can see it first thing in the morning and right before I fall asleep. And it’s working. I find myself looking at this board whenever I’m in my room. Each time I glance at it a different message stands out. Somehow whichever one I see seems to fit my mindset that exact moment. Other messages decorating my world? “Live the life you’ve imagined.” “If you can dream it, you can do it.” “Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.” And this one, “Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow,” is right by my door so I can see it before I venture out for the day.
Am I going overboard with all these visions and positive messages? I say no. I say bring it on! Surround yourself in the sublime.
Instead of just carrying around those overflowing to-do lists, I think everyone should plant inspirational affirmations or positive quotes that can sprout up throughout the day. It can be post-it notes in your wallet or purse, the wallpaper on your phone or signing up to receive an uplifting quote in your email. Sometimes these messages make me smile. Other days they motivate me or remind me to stay hopeful. And that is never a bad thing.
So why not try it out? It might just make your day or at least point it in a new direction.
