A vision board for the new year...

Have you heard of a vision board? I had but hadn't really done one until this past year at work. I wasn't so sure about at first, it seemed a little too "hooky-pookey- new-age-find-yourself" but once I got started I had a TON of fun!!

The whole idea is based on 'The Law of Attraction' which says that anything we give attention to in our lives we will attract, and it can be both positive or negative. I know, I know, pretty feng shui type stuff. But when I really think about it, I do tend to get whatever it is that I put my mind to or that I really really want. So does this mean that when I really want something I am able to get it through simple hard work or sheer determination, or is that I am attracting those opportunities via some great unseen new age energy of the universe?

I'll tell you something, when I was younger all I wanted to do was be in the entertainment industry. It was something I wanted so badly I could taste it. Have you ever had something like that? Something you want so badly you could feel it in the makeup of your DNA? That you dreamed about it so often it was your reality? It was really the only goal that I ever had. A few years after high school I moved to CA and started to work towards that goal but took a detour when I decided that instead of this goal, I was only to move to Oklahoma to follow a boy. Silly, I know. Once I got back on track, lost the boy and moved back to AZ I was laid off from job. Man! Tough break, right? No. I was volunteering for a film festival and started talking with a woman who lived in LA and worked for movie studio. I talked my way into her giving me job which I did until I decided that maybe that I needed to get my degree.
At which point I was promptly able to get a job back in AZ...working for a college...where I can get my degree.

Now, is this just my ability to get what I want? Or do I attract what I want because of some sort of law of attraction? I'm not sure. But what I do know is, I'm not taking any chances. All hail the new year and my new vision board!!

What do you think?
