Writing today’s blog is making me laugh again as I start a NEW mood box for something I’d not even considered when I filmed this on Monday.
They can be used for moods (calm? confident? peaceful? courageous? sleepy? safe?) and goals.
Use all your senses – vision, hearing, touch (fabrics, stones…), emotions, even smells and (careful not to have things that might go off) tastes.
What’s will you put in your mood box?
What will you use for it? An old shoebox that you decorate?
Feel free to share below.
Happy New Year!
I’ve written so much about vision boards over the years, I’ve decided to keep this Really Simple (but, as with everything, YOU know yourself best so adapt accordingly):
- Spend some time gathering images and words that you feel drawn to. No need to judge or censor at this point, simply gather them together
- Ponder some of your goals and hopes for the year ahead. You may want to think about different areas of your life such as work, relationships, health, fitness, home, money, the world at large, your communities, travel, long held (or new) dreams, what your spirit needs – whatever crops up for you
- Stick the images and words down in a way that pleases you. I use a big canvas and glue. You might prefer cardboard and tape.
- Play with your design. The most important part of this whole endeavor is that it inspires YOU
- As you can see from my censored version of my latest above, apart from apparently wanting to become an elephant, I’ve written down each as if it were already the case. I like the affirmation starter ‘I am so happy and grateful that…’ so pop that on a bigger note near the top
- I scatter the other goals around the board, sometimes near images or words I’ve cut out that feel relevant
- On another larger note near the bottom, ‘Thanks for all this or something better’
- Play with it until you’re happy with it. Know nothing’s set in stone and it will evolve as you do
- Steve Harvey says he’s had words from his embroidered on clothes he sees each day. The more we can remind ourselves of our aims, the more likely we are to take practical steps towards them. I have a picture of mine on my laptop as well as the original hanging on the wall in World HQ (my teeny home office)
Have you created a vision board before?
What did you learn from it?
Have you done one for this year?
Feel free to share pics of yours in the comments below.
Wishing you a wondrous 2017 filled with all good things!
