Revealing Your Vision
Do you have a vision for your life? What is it? Do you actually know?
What is "vision"––you know, when we're not talking about something which might involve your optometrist?
The definition of "vision" I'm talking about is:"The ability to visualize, think about or plan the future."
So, back to: Do you know what your vision is?
If you don't, I can at least tell you what your vision was yesterday, a month ago, a year ago.
You're sitting in it right now.
Yep, that's right.
The course, direction, circumstance of your life, as it is right this very minute, is the vision you've been working on. It's the one you've been holding in your mind and it's manifesting itself today.
Do you want to change that?
Here's the how-to.
First, think about what you want to have or do.
Next, write out a list with those aspirations on it leaving enough space on the side of each to write the obstacles preventing you from getting them. Those items next to your goals will be anything that is not contributing to, or is destroying, what you want to have in life. Include all the things that are stealing your attention, making you angry, sad, nervous or distracted. Include in the first column on the list the things you would be doing "if only __
". Include all the "if only"s at the side of each of those, too. Be honest and be as thorough as you can.
As you are writing out your list, notice that everything that you've written to the side of your goals is what you are putting your focus on instead of your goals. Those things are your current
"vision" for your life; they are what you are thinking about instead of the vision you really want.
It should be easier to see your vision for your life now, once you weed out the stuff that isn't part of your vision.
The cool thing is, every one of those things you wrote on the side of your goals is an actionable item.
You can actually do something about each one of them. Once you do
the actionable item, you don't need to have your focus on it anymore.
Some of them you can even toss away completely! Things like too much web-surfing, horrifying news stories, TV or games that don't contribute to your vision.
(If one of those things you want to toss away is your mother-in-law, you're going to have to be clever about it, though … ;o7)
Don't think that all the FUN is going to go out of your life when you get rid of things that aren't contributing to your vision, just be sure to include "Enjoy life" on your list ... :o))
Love posting to themes? You might enjoy these great themes with excellent curators! Themes and hashtags are not necessarily about getting more attention, but are a valuable indexing method, which help others find relevant posts via clickable links as well as a great way to meet like-minded people.
I tend to only promote those themes with active, caring curators.#PortraitTuesday +PortraitTuesday
