It’s still a little surreal to me that exactly a month ago, my trip was underway, and I was on my way to London!
Habakkuk 2:2 says to write the vision and make it plain.
During my 16 hour layover on my way back from Nigeria, I had plenty of time to reflect on the previous 2 1/2 weeks. I soaked in all the experiences, and replaying everything over on my mind. The people I met, the food I ate, the weather, everything. All of a sudden my vision board came to mind, and I realized that my vision had come to life!
I’ve been hearing about vision boards for a long time, and I’m sure you have too. I’ve only made one, which I did at the end of 2016, and I’m excited to say that the majority of it has come to pass.
There’s just something about speaking and writing down what you want to see happen in your life. There’s lots of talk these days about laws of attraction, manifestation, and such. I just call it speaking things into existence. You can create the life you want once you decide to live on purpose, hold yourself accountable, and plan accordingly.
When I created my vision board, I didn’t only write about material things, I also included my spiritual life, and how I wanted my state of mind to be. I put words of affirmation on it. I put down words that were going to challenge me to get up every day and be present, not just going through the motions of life. Each one of us has our own interpretation of what being present means. To me, it’s interacting more with my kids, taking them on some of my trips so that they are exposed to other ways of living and environments. It’s not forgetting how far I’ve come regardless of all the mistakes I made. It’s taking the time to really think about the decisions I make, and not living in a fantasy world where everything will magically work out. It’s doing what it takes to live the life I want, and be the woman who I want to be.
