Last week I wrote briefly about choosing my ‘one little word’ for 2014. Shine. I wrote that I wasn’t sure where the word would take me. I signed up for Ali Edwards on-line class to give me a bit of motivation. I’ve enjoyed the beginning of the class but as is often the case with me, it took a ‘real life’ friend to really get me going.
I have been having monthly lunch dates with my friend Donna for years now. Sometimes we have set goals for our get togethers or read books together or just talked. This year we decided that we would do something creative each time we met. Today, Donna came prepared to lead us through creating not a vision board, but a vision card. Something to motivate but something small enough to display and carry and move.
I have been wanting to do this my word but it definitely took Donna to get me going. As we talked and worked, I realized that there are, as I suspected, many layers to my word. I found that Shine means giving myself the chance to shine and in order to do that I want to set goals and actually ‘make it happen.’ The thought of setting public goals gives me a bit of a tummy ache but it seems that maybe this is the year to do that. We’ll have to see…
Donna’s word for the year is Move and she found all sort of amazing things today too.
Below are a few pictures of our process.
Thank you Donna for the motivation and inspiration. I can’t wait to see where the year takes us.
