Vision Board

Marie just noticed Chris and I have been talking about vision boards and she thought I had done a past post regarding that subject. Nope, not on vision I'm an authority or something--HA!! I think if you go to you can find out about vision boards and spirituality, but what they are about in essence is gratitude and appreciation for what you have, where you are at in your life and where you want to be, without regret and the intention that everything is working for the highest good. It is a positive affirmation.

I just feel it never hurts to pass on positive thoughts and energy into your work, to your blog and onto others that are receptive to that sort of thing. A very wise woman, my Mother, has always said, "what goes around, comes around," so I believe if you act in a positive manner you will receive the same type of response from others in your life. I think most of you will have to admit that if you meet up with someone that isn't smiling, appears to hate their job and where they are, that if you approach them with a smile, pleasant demeanor and open body language, you can diffuse their initial negative attitude over 95% of the time. It is that sort of thing where you project and that projection is reflected back to you.

So, if things aren't going well for you right now, treat yourself and your work with respect, acknowledge your self-worth and the value of your work, and develop the attitude that "all is well." Write it down, post pictures of your work and place it in a location you see regularly or put it away in a drawer to look at occasionally, then journal what happens.

Now, if you aren't in to this sort of thing just pretend I didn't post this...HA!!! If you are the least bit receptive to this thought process, give it a try!!!

Happy creating and may everyone be blessed and prosper in 2009.

Hi Laurie,

Thats exactly how I see the world around me. If you do good, you will receive good. My wise mom always said the same thing. I taught my kids the happiness code as we put it.

Bless all also to find peace and happiness in 2009.


Sonia ;)

(smiles, happiness, and positivity can be contagious if YOU let it spread.)

Wonderful post! My favorite saying is "What goes around comes around" and I may not see it but I believe it.

Thanks Laurie!!! Last year I had started to keep an "occasional art journal" but in the rush of the season put it aside. Just recently I've picked it up again and have been writing, drawing, and pasting pictures in it almost daily. I find it really does help in many ways. I'm also going to give this vision board a go as everything you can do to keep a positive mind is a good thing!
I've worked in retail for many years and I know what you mean about being able to turn that smile on and make even the grumpy ones into happy people by the time they leave.
Thanks for sharing!

Sorry I didn't respond to all of your comments earlier...been away from my computer! So glad you stopped by on a topic away from my figures and creating...although I must say the vision board is a creation in itself.

Thanks for the online info Darlene. I just back on the computer so I haven't had a chance to check on your link yet but you can bet I will!!

Have a great day and happy creating.

Awesome post Laurie!
I truly beleive that " Postive attracts Positive" and the same with Negativity. The idea of "What goes around comes around" or Karma,
is to me the absolute rule of life!..It's easy to get caught up in things sometimes, and I find meditation helps keep me focused :)
