This year, I started the process of creating a vision board for 2017 and unfortunately got stalled because of time. This got me thinking… do I really want a vision board or do I want to do something else this year? So, instead of a vision board, I decided to pick one word that described what I wanted to “feel” more than any other word this year.
I choose the word “joy”. After 7 years of having babies, starting businesses, moving two states and writing my first book, I decided that it is now time to truly en-joy life rather than work so hard at it. With that in mind, I decided to choose one picture I felt summed up this feeling best and use this for my vision board instead.
My picture is of little boy on a skate board sailing effortlessly down the road. In this picture I see childlike freedom and innocence. I see sun and mountains. I see a smile and I see joy. It’s clear this little guy is having the time of his life- and this- is how I want to live in 2017. I want to spread my arms out and roll on down the street with a huge smile on my face and not a care in the world. I might wear the safety hat and goggles or I might just throw caution to the wind. But I will be experience joy.
What is your word for 2017? What picture would you choose to describe it?
