I haven't created a new vision board in years but last week was inspired to do so again and I'm very pleased with it. It was so nice to be able to include an AirdrieLIFE magazine image of the painted utility box project which I enjoyed creating so much that I hope to have an opportunity to do that again sometime.
Some of the images and words in this board have been with me awhile. I tend to keep images I like in a folder for no reason whatsoever, just knowing that I'm not ready to let them go yet. And it's interesting to see how well they all work together. It's how I've always decorated my homes. By gathering things I like, both furniture and art, they somehow go together. I guess they are a reflection of myself and my family. When I added the pendelton blanket to my board, it was only as a symbol of warmth and comfort. And then, on Sunday at the museum with my family, I stumbled upon one almost identical in the shop.
This board is more symbolic to me than material. It's based on how I want to feel and live rather than on physical objects I want to own. I realize that things don't give me joy, but experiences and being content in all I do does.
Yesterday I had a fabulous lunch with a dear friend and then an evening chat with another. Today I'm working on an article for another magazine, for which I am absolutely grateful. I know I've said this before, but even through and in spite of all the struggles of this life, which sometimes seem to occur daily, I do feel blessed.
