Using community to help grow your dreams and vision


It is important to have dreams.  It is important to protect your dreams.  It is important to know who in your community you can trust with your dreams.  When you do know who to trust within your community, this will be the Foundation of a Sweet Life.

As the year come to a close it makes sense to start looking forward to new goals and dreams for the new year. Take stock of the past year - evaluate what you did well and what you need to change for the new year. 

One of my favorite activities in January is to make a vision board.  I love it because it is a creative process that you can share with friends.

It is a word and pictorial view of what you want to create in the upcoming year.  Look for pictures, words, or phrases that symbolize your goals and then glue them to a poster board. Pick symbols of positive attitudes or things that you want to manifest in your new year. 

Before creating a vision board think about your goals in several categories: personal, financial, career, travel, social, and family. Once you find what you want, paste them to a board.  Hang it somewhere where you can see it each morning as a reminder.

Anyone can create this wonderful process.  Share this experience with your community to make it a social experience.  Brings food or something to drink and settle in for a couple of hours cutting and pasting.  This process can take a few hours or a few days depending on how detailed and how big you want to make your vision board. 

It is a fun way to focus on what you want and you can do it with your community.

If creating a board is not your thing then make a book, or write down your goals on a chalkboard.  What is important is to be able to see it every day to remind you what you want to create. Try it and send me a post about your experience.
