In the past two months I've been slowly working on my vision board, a cork board that represents my hopes and dreams with clipped out images and phrases. This was my very first time actually doing something like this, and I was open to the idea thanks to a few coworkers that insisted on how it's helped them achieve their personal and career goals.
Now, understanding that this isn't some miracle magic board that's going to make all my wishes come true overnight, this has helped serve as a daily reminder for myself, and keeps me on the path that I want to be and follow. It has dramatically strengthened my motivation and pushed me to a few levels I thought I'd never accomplish.
Having just starting this board in February, I've already achieved some personal things that I didn't expect to happen so soon. By envisioning certain events and ideal situations in my life, I actually started to feel how possible it can really all be. It inspired me to do more and continue with plans that I've had bottled up in my heart for so long.
I know the term, "you only live once," is used so often these days, but that's' exactly how I feel right now. This is the year that will be different. By December, I plan to be living in a different country, having that ideal job, and living life to the fullest. I know I can make this possible, and it'll all happen. I just have to let it fall into place and wait patiently.
I'll close this post now with this oh-so-wise quote that just so happened to be attached to my tea bag today-
