Well here is my vision board. I've not posted it up yet. I think the laundry room will be good b/c I'm always in there! Just wanting God to be the big part of my vision, leading the way. To wherever he leads, to whatever we do, every step.
I love the phrase, when you seek me ye shall find me when you do so with your whole heart. He has always been there for me. I always want to seek Him and I always like when I find Him! Then there was this "together" notion - that when we do things "together" we are far greater in impact that going it alone. This one has multiple meanings for me. It's together with God, together with spouse, together with friends, and together with family - which ever ones will claim me. It's to remind me to serve more, to give more, to help more in this ever ugly world that is trying to emerge.
The vision will remind me that I want to remain active and well and be balanced in life and to have good nutrition and to be able to share this with others and help them like I have been helped. It goes far beyond Isagenix and what it has done for me but just the total spiritual, physical wellness to ease pain, lose weight, move again, feel good, go places, do things, avoid auto immune disease and eat the right foods and get the right nutrition in your body. Learn about nutrition and how to get the nutrients you need. When you know - you know and you don't look back. I want others to feel as good as I do.
I liked this one. I have always had good ideas about managing or running a business - I've just never had the money to start one. How many times on this blog have I gone to a place of business and assessed it? Reran the business in my mind and said "here's what I'd do". Of course you know my dreams are usually big - some things out of reach and some not. I am 55 now and likely not going to be starting a new business at this point of brick and mortar proportions. But I do have an opportunity to share with others and I'm doing that anyway - sharing what I'm learning about nutrition as a whole. And in the process God is telling me, don't forget to share me too! I will always run my life, my endeavors, and any business I'm a part of - whether at my day job, a personal business, or my own household with my entrepreneurial spirit. So this is to remind me to keep that spirit.
So I also have this adventurous spirit - it's a cautious spirit by default and that is probably a good thing b/c it has helped keep me safe so far - but I do have this side of me that wants to explore. I get excited about scenery, landscapes, and known to like a bit of shopping and of course experience new restaurants and cuisine. But to go places I've never been is one of the biggest things I get excited over in this life. And to be able to have a rolling mini house to go and see these things - to get out, get some exercise, see God's beauty, meet other people doing the same, and join that "network" or "community" is so exciting to me. The RV'ers have their own world. I want to be part of it. It's calling me BIG TIME. I mean it's all I can do to keep from just stopping everything and going to it right now. Believe me I'm trying to figure that one out. This just excites me. Watching Keep Your Daydream has changed my life. It's changed how I view retirement. This is far more fun than moving beach side. You get a changing environment every day and that would feed my soul. And I would get to do what I love - writing about it. So this is motivation - to try and figure out how we can do this. I have spoken with George about it - and I can say from our talk that he seems to like "this dream". This is most we've ever really talked about "a dream" except for monetarily planning for retirement. Buying an RV wasn't part of the planning but travel was. I'm not sure how it will play out. It would take some rearranging and extra $$ coming from somewhere. And I will try my best to do my part. At this point, I'm ready to get rid of a lot of stuff. I imagine one would have to downsize to a smaller home base - or perhaps no home base and just a storage unit - who knows. That's extreme. As George says "we can rent one and see if we like it". I'm floored. I would never want to do it if he weren't all in, but this is my dream now to explore the US, Canada - but George says "we ain't going to Mexico". I said "good cause I don't really wanna go there". But this is to remind me what my dreams are. Like I need a reminder. I mean I'm ok with weekend excursions but...I want it to be a way of life.
And to visit Napa and wineries and to taste good cuisine by excellent chefs. We could be cheap and eat in a lot but do side excursions and taste good food in various places as we like to do. At least once or twice a week.
This is reminding me how much I love to document! And if we traveled I'd be doing just that. You can make money while doing it. I'd want to be able to do that. I'd want a better camera, and a go pro.
Our website would be complete with blog and vlog! I want to learn to do the videos in a professional way. I don't really have to wait for that part. I can learn that now!
I threw in a small cottage! If we did travel and we sold our house - and did want a home base - I'd go for a smaller cottage style - cute and sassy. Don't worry, none of this is in the works now - this is just me dreaming. This house has a lot of outside maintenance to it with the 2 acres. I figured at some point we'd be moving or downsizing anyway - either to follow Kate or our dreams. So that part was inevitable at some point. On a rolling home one could visit where ever they wanted when they wanted!
And I put a pic of Jesus in there...because God and Jesus are at the beginning of the rest of my journey. And at the End.
So there you have it. Those are my dreams, my visions, my thoughts, my goals.
