Long have I resisted creating a vision board. I dislike visual clutter and I quickly get bored with images in my living space. But this past month, the idea of using one to promote healing has come up in several divergent places: conversation, a magazine article, a demonstration project I was walking by. Okay, okay. I get the hint.
I gathered images and words from several different publications over several weeks. I just cut out stuff that I liked, without giving too much thought to the meaning behind the images. But when I was putting the board together, I noticed some interesting things. I had cut out a couple of photos of butterflies (just because they are pretty, I thought) but they have long been a symbol of transformation. Hmmm.
In a month devoted to pink and red hearts, I cut out a page of pure white ones. Hmmm.
There is a lot of nature in those pictures, and I love being outside, but I spend a lot of time indoors. Hmmm.
I propped the thing up in the closet on top of the dresser, so it is not cluttering up my space.
