If you’re looking for instructions on how to create a vision board where you slap a picture of a car onto a piece of paper, hang it onto your wall, and then cross yourfingers that this car will magically drive into your driveway the next day, then this this blog is not for you.
On the other hand, read on if you’re interested in learning how you can use magazine images and collage to tap into your creativity and intuition to create a vision for your life or business that helps you:
claim what you want from life or business
shape your direction and goals
smile and make your heart sing
fuel your motivation and remind you of where you want to go.
But there’s still plenty of time to take stock and work out what would bring you the most joy or relief to have completed by the end of this year. And then most importantly, to go ahead and make it happen :-).
If you’ve been following me on either Facebook or Instagram, you would have seen some of the work going on behind-the-scenes. You can also get a sneak peek by checking out my new website header above (a bit like the image below).
Today I’d like to give you an update on what’s coming up that might help you get your affairs in order or, at the very least, give you a little inspiration :-).
