I have had a strong feeling lately that I need to bring in more positive and inspiring things into my life. I need to surround myself with beautiful, creative, authentic, and positive things and people. Leave the negativity, fakeness, and unkind things behind and look ahead with a fresh start. Winter is always an inward time for me and this year is no different. It is a time to reflect on my behavior, my surroundings, my passions, and everything going on in my life..good or bad. It is a time to stop living on auto pilot, slow down, and really focus on things that make me happy. One thing that I learned from an E Course I am taking right now, Inside Out, is to think about the things you do not value in your life, then let those things go so you can focus on the things you do value. Seems really simple, right? Well in concept it is easy and it is a really important practice, but it does take some time and inner work to figure these things out. I am slowly coming out on the other side with thoughts of strictly surrounding myself with loving, inspiring, kind, and authentic people. And with doing things that make me happy, foster my creativity, make me laugh, and evoke good feelings. I am also working on creating a home filled with light, positivity, inspiration, and lots of love.
With all this being said, it is what has led me to creating an Inspiration Board (and the advice from a good friend). I have made vision boards before, but this is different. My board will be filled with quotes, photos, and items that really inspire me to live life to it's fullest. To do what I enjoy with lots of laughs and good folk.
I just started this board a few days ago and it is a work in progress, but I am thrilled to have it in place. Thrilled to have a place to put my inspiring things and thrilled to have a board to look at to lift my spirits and get me pumped.
So, I am wondering...do you have an inspiration board or some area in your home that is filled with things that you love? Or...do you have a quote you think I should add to my board?
