This past weekend was a great Spark experience. I created my vision collage, keeping in mind my cheerleader, on one shoulder, and my dragon - previously described as a Jabba the Hut lookalike with clashing lipstick - on the other. It was pure fun, for lack of a better word.
I chose words and pictures that just made me happy and enthusiastic seeing them. I put them all on an optomistic, blue background. Anything that I originally looked at, that ultimately seemed a little critical or negative, (dragon-esque,) I discarded. Anyting uplifting got fit into the collage, from tiny lady bugs to a large photo of a not-perfect-figured woman doing yoga and seeming serene.
And after I was done, that energy and upbeat feeling carried over! I felt so confident in how I wanted to look at my life that I began culling through all the accumulated clutter around the house, removing things that I had just because someone else had given it to me (mom, dad) or because I was afraid that some day I would need it and I couldn't afford another one - despite hating the darn thing - and the whole house seems lighter and more likable! I even moved my desk - a drafting table - right into my bright, sunny bedroom so I could feel better working there, and clipped my vision collage to the top of it! Two hours of heavy cleaning later, I was a sweaty but upbeat mess, and not a hint of the dragon sliming around at all.
Sparkpeople, we are on a roll!
