Needing more focus ....creating my Vison Board.....

Vision Board


As an artist we see things differently than most people....we are visual....so often times I find that writing down things and having lists works ...but when I need more focus in my life I need to visualize things....

I remember years ago when I used to go golfing with some friends that went all the time....I told them on the course to just visualize where you want the ball to go ....they would get so mad at me ....and laugh when I said it...but I ended up with better scores than the seasoned pros in our team....all because of visualization....

Things have been so busy around here that I thought I would take some time to re-focus ....and set up my visual dream board.....

All you have to do is the following.....
  • get a big piece of really thick paper....I used a huge 140lb watercolour paper
  • some art and magazines to pick things from....
  • scissors
  • double sided tape and glue
  • yellow watercolour paint
  • a photo of you that you like as a focal point
and do the following

1. Paint a yellow border around the Vision Board to help put focus and light around what you want to bring to your life.
2. Place your photo in the center
3. Surround the board with things that you want to bring to your life...show how you want to feel, where you want to go or want you want to have.
4. Make sure you have fun with it
5. Make sure you spend time every morning looking at your Vision Board and every night....when you look at each piece remind yourself what you want to feel, where you want to go and what you want to achieve.
6. Expect these wonderful feelings , places and achievements to manifest in your life in the appropriate time.

you can also add and update your board as you need to.....your life can be whatever you want it to be.....

FOCUS???
I'm supposed to FOCUS??? ;-D
you should see me this morning~~you'd have your laugh for the day, especially since the brain and fingers are going different directions! (seriously, I can NOT type this morning!)
I have always considered doing one of these and never got to it.
I am the Queen of Procrastination, alas!

XXOO~~
