For the past few years I have gotten together with friends to work on our Vision Quest (Vision Boards) for the year. We always do this in early January as it is a great time to reset and to envision what we want for the year. It is also just fun to get together with friends, catch up and have some lovely snacks. We plan to get together again halfway through the year to see where everyone is at and to visit with each other.
As most of you know, I retired from my full time job with CMHA at the end of December 2018. I was so surprised to see this on my Vision Board from 2018. I had no plan to retire and in fact was planning to work for two more years.
Vision Boards are So Powerful!!
Vision Boards are not for everyone. It can be a bit overwhelming to think about what you want to have on your board and what you want for your life. Some big questions for sure. It can be helpful to do some work on this before getting together to start the work of putting your board together.
It can be really important to be grounded before doing this work with a meditation or smudging with sage as it is good to be in the right mindset. It is good to have a focus and perhaps to narrow it down to a few areas in your life. It could be Work, Relationships, Family, Personal Growth for example.
This year I worked on both sides of my Board. The first side is the personal aspect of myself and what I want to work on and the second is the work I want to do. As you can see it is a work in process.
Our visions and intentions for what we want will change over time and we are always a work in process. I really love the flow of this and believe that where our attention goes is what will grow for us. Writing down your goals and looking at them everyday is something that will help you to be able to make the changes in your life that will help you to move forward.
