Where Are You Headed?

This past weekend was all about fun for me.

My partner was out of town for the weekend, and I found myself at home with no work obligations and lots of time to focus on self-care, play, and friendships.

So on Sunday, I had a group over to the house to make vision boards (which, by the way, if you’ve never tried, you totally have to check out making a vision board).

It was such a fascinating experience because there I was, looking at dozens of magazines including the Washingtonian, Architectural Digest, searching for images of what I want my vision to be for the next year…and it struck me that I didn’t really know.

Here I am looking at these glossy images—a professional coach—knowing what my tangible goals are, and I realized that I didn’t really have a clear vision of what I wanted my life to look like in terms of how I wanted to feel, the colors that represent the next year of my life, the words that call me forth.

And it struck me that this is probably a common experience for many.

We have a sense of what we want, but we are not sure exactly what that looks and feels like.

We need visions.

If we don’t have a clear vision of where we’re headed, how are we going to get there?

So, during that time that I had friends over for three hours, I probably spent the first hour and a half just page flipping through magazines to really get connected with what I want.

And I decided to give myself permission to not know! Looking forward to part two this weekend, when I’m finally going to put those images and quotes to paper.

If this relates to you, I invite you to start getting clear on your vision for what you want your life to look like this year. Think about it as a full sensory experience:

What does it look like?

What does it feel like?

Why do you want it?

What are the smells?

What do you hear?

What is the texture and flavor?

Really try to get clear on what your vision is so that you know what you’re manifesting into your life.
