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!

    Don't you love how the Universe is always talking to you, and giving you important this one? I did my very first Vision board 2 weeks ago! A group of women, 10 of us, only one I knew - from my Astrology class. It was a fantastic process...and I LOVE the vision board that resulted. Its up here on my wall, front and center.
    I also have the word Believe up on top of the page. (had to get up just now, to stir the oatmeal!) I've started making oatmeal, at least once a week - the real kind, not instant)....its healthy and filling. Anyway, I digress! The way we did it, was - we chose a few things we wanted to manifest, and also a few shapes that symbolized what we are working on...for me, it was a Square for stability and also, more of a focus on the Material world.
    Anyway, I would take a picture and post it, but don't know how...? But I have a picture of a woman with slim body, and she is so relaxed, getting a Massage. Oh yes. ...the words
    Change yr. Llife is also front and center.
