Life... and my vision board

As most of you know, I'm doing the 100 day Co-Creating your reality challenge. One of the tools I chose to use was a vision board. I went to the craft store and bought a poster size foam-core board and cut up tons of magazines. I have pictures on there that depict most of the things I want in life... from a home to furnishings, to pictures that (to me) show organization, exercise, relaxation, etc.

My vision board has been added to over the past weeks. And I keep it on an easel, so I can see it all throughout my day. And yes, having a visual does help. I'm that much closer to attaining the things I want. And getting rid of things I don't.

It is not all-inclusive, though... I tried to cover my bases and put pictures on there for everything. But I had not planned to do an etsy shop, so it's not on there. I also had not planned to walk through my home and start to get rid of clutter. I took DVD's to my work and sold a bunch, am taking VHS tapes. We never watch them, but in the recent past have packed them into boxes and moved them from home to home 3 times. When we do move, we are setting up room by room, and I'm a minimalist more and more, so all the decor that we do not use is going bye-bye. It feels good.

My etsy shop can be found at and so far I have a couple of photos and my journals on there. I am expanding my selection real soon. I'm thinking about adding some milk bath for the holidays, and possibly some microwave neckwarmer things that I make. If you've been to my shop, thank you! If you've not visited yet, I urge you to check it out. And either way, check back to see what I'm up to next.

Part of this journey feels like a roller coaster ride. I have no idea what's around the next corner, but it's sure to be thrilling, and I'm ready!

Hello Robyn,

I think that the journey being like a roller coaster ride is just about right. Hold on tight -- and you'll come in for a smooth landing at the end of 100 days (and then you can begin another journey!).

If we didn't have the downs in life, we wouldn't be able to appreciate the "ups." So, here's to pushing onward and upward, even through a dip or two along the way.

I used to ride roller coasters until I got the lesson....I would be there, tense, trying to hold myself in - then I realized, I'm already strapped in and even if the belt breaks, I couldn't stop myself from going anywhere (my arms would be like wet noodles). So, why not just relax and enjoy the ride - no need to worry or try to control what I cannot control. I don't feel the need to ride them anymore...too much stress on the body. Besides, like you said, I'm already riding one!
