When I started my vision board on New Years Eve I was really excited about the project. I laid out all the tape, glue, pictures and craft things. I have an old motivational calendar that had all the right words written in the right size and in a really nice scroll. As I cut out my pictures and pasted them into place I picked the motivational word that best fit that picture and the trigger word I wanted to use for my motivation.
I had my board almost finished but as the night wore on and my guests and I started getting tired and running out of steam, it was a good place to stop, plus I was looking for a picture of someone doing yoga, the one of the girl, and under it I was going to place the word FLEXIBILITY which I had already cut from my calendar.
Well, a few days later, I found the picture I had been looking for and went to place it in the home on the board I had saved for it with the word underneath. I could not find the word, I search, I hunted, I went through my trash can, I started to get out of hand, ready to give up on the whole board because now it was ruined because I could not find the word....FLEXIBILITY! Oh, my, that was suddenly a wake up call. No wonder I wanted THAT WORD because I tend not to have it when I need it! Never did find the word, put Commitment above the picture and "the real beauty" under it. Finishing my board..Great...Not finding that word...well...flexible! Learning a lesson....priceless!
