Freedom Friday: The Vision Edition

Write the vision, make it plain;
that they may run and not faint.
Though the vision is only for awhile,
it shall speak and not lie.

Hello Good People!

So over the last couple of days, I’ve had these confirmations about some next steps in my life.  At the end of 2011, I started feeling like I needed to prepare, not for a disaster or anything, but for a new phase in my life.  However, I felt like I needed more direction than a “feeling”.  So I started to write a list of things to accomplish in 2011…personally, professionally, spiritually, financially and healthwise.  However, it felt more like a “to-do” or chore list, which isn’t very inspiring. 

So as I was talking to my co-worker about some of these changes, I realized that I had completed my 7 year life cycle last year.  2o12 begins a new cycle for me, so I really have a fresh start ahead of me. 

And today, during my morning routine of checking Facebook,  a Facebook friend stated that they completed their vision board, and it was already working for them.  I said that’s it!  It is time for me to truly write the vision.  As a child, I used to have these “future books”, but they were really vision boards.  My mom actually still has them.  I think I need to check them out for some more confirmation.  And what is right on time, there are two vision board workshops taking place on Saturday, 1/7/11.  Click here and here.

For many of us, we tend to “wing it” each day.  However, just imagine that you can begin to chart the course for your life?  I believe that we can begin to harness our faith and our energy to really direct the course in our lives.  This isn’t about controlling everything or everyone around.  It is believing in yourself to being to make things happen in your life.  Many of us say we believe, but our actions and our language say something totally different…and I am not exempt.  Therefore, this year, I am challenging myself to begin to live powerfully and to walk confidently into my future.   And I extend this challenge to you, especially my mid-30 counterparts.  It is our time NOW.  All our experiences, good and challenging, have brought us to this exact moment.  It is up to each of us to decide if we are going to step up or step aside to do the work we are passionate about.     

Peace and Blessings, ThatKellieGirl
