Art gives us the perfect opportunity to see into our imagination. As we get out the colored pencils, paints, and pencils, we can express our feelings and make something from them that we can see visually.
Journals are great for this expression. I like to think of them more as a little peekhole than a big window - they capture how we feel in that moment. We can capture a brief snapshot of our life in even just a few minutes. A journal can be a private and safe place to explore without the pressure to create something that needs to be shared or admired.
At the other end of the spectrum is to create a bigger picture vision. Many have done this by creating a Vision Board, a collection of inspiring images and words that are glued onto a board. Instead of just showing a peek into “How do I feel right now,” a Vision Board gives a big picture view of “HOw do I feel about LIFE AND MY BIG ROLE IN IT”. But making a Vision Board can be both a good and a bad experience.
I am referencing Vision Boards in the book I am currently writing and would LOVE to hear what YOU think of them - the good, the bad, and the ugly -- especially the latter!! Please share here or on Facebook (link here).
