Let me share a story that rocked my world today, and which I also found to be really interesting. I do Dream Boards, and have for several years now, and I think they are simply magical!
I have this amazing young woman in my life, her name is “Jane”! She is a young mom, hard working, smart, and wounded. I noticed after not having her in my world for quite some time, just how much I missed her. We have done retreats together, several in fact over the years, and I have watched her blossom and wither and blossom again, over this time. I feel motherly around her, like she was a past daughter in a past life somehow. And now she is back - as God’s timing is perfect.
I first got to hear her pain one night among a group of young woman, and recognized my pain in her once upon a time, and invited her to do some “work”. She has forgotten to see herself just like I did. Beautiful, smart, talented, formidable, capable, determined, resourceful, kind..... and so it goes. So to the point, and here is where the dream board comes in to the story. We chatted for a while in my kitchen before we headed upstairs to my office. I’m sure she was not feeling comfortable, as the hardest place to be is in that place called vulnerability, you know that place where you look at your truth, even if it hurts.
Okay, now for the magic moment, I was showing her my new Dream Board and my old one. And on my old one there is a list of “50 things to do, have, become” that I wrote down from 2012 that I carry forward! As I’m glancing at it, I see #18, it says “mentor Jane”! OMG as she sits next to my dream board hanging on the wall it hit me, the perfection of life. I at one time mentored her, and here it is happening again, she is back in my life for a beautiful reason, and that is to give. Interesting that my word and focus for this year is “RELATIONSHIPS”! What I think about, I bring about.
I encourage each of you reading this to do a DREAM BOARD - start by gathering magazines, print pictures off the internet, steal them from your doctor’s office (okay kidding, ask for them). Do something to put into words and pictures, the feelings you want to create this year! Do it now... it’s amazing how they come TRUE!
The purpose of my business is YOU - I want to assist you in seeking, finding and achieving your ambitions, dreams, desires, hopes and dreams!
