Right now, you are probably still being bombarded with post on how the New Year is the impetus to a fresh start. You know, the whole trite New Year, New me motto. By the way, I’m guilty of using that in previous years. Yes, I know the turning of the number tends to invoke motivation and a sudden drive to accomplish those goals that you’ve postponed for years. Nevertheless, it can easily be a trap,
a repetitious cycle of short-lived ambitions that fade as the months float by and before you know it, it is December again.
Nope, I refuse to write another post about fleeting determinations. So, how do we change this detrimental, yet common habit? I have an idea. It may seem mediocre, but since we are visual creatures by nature. You know, the whole eyes being the entryway into our… you get it. Either way, oftentimes, seeing is truly believing.
My sister- in-law showed me her vision board over the holidays. A hot pink cardboard poster tatted with magazine printouts of symbols and letters that kind of, sort of resemble the stalker letters in the movie, “The Body Guard” when I think about it. Nevertheless, I was immediately intrigued and inspired. I have much I desire to accomplish, or finish up for that matter in 2016. The main thing is publishing my third novel. I am beyond excited about that! There are plenty of others things too.
- Become a better writer
- Focus more on my blog
- Apply for the Master’s program
- Attend the DFW Writer’s Conference in April (BTW, IS ANYONE ELSE ATTENDING?)
Okay, so it ended up being another post about a fresh start to the New Year. However, a vision board mapping out our plans may be that extra push we need to ensure we reach the finish line this time.
So, what about you? Have you ever created a vision board? Do you plan to?
