Saturday’s vision and a prayer!

May 25, 2013

Until this week I was blissfully unaware of ‘vision boards.’ A day or two ago Bodhisattva in training  a dear follower ‘popped up or in’ with post that explained the concept .  

It seemed like fun and a nice way in which to mark and celebrate my second anniversary of blogging.  

When began 2 years ago I had not written a word creatively since leaving school 50 years ago. I was even less experienced in ‘social media’ or indeed blogging.

I hit the floor running and began a virtual journey of a lifetime, woven with a turbulent psychological excursion and real-time passages to Brazil and Europe, not forgetting a full-time career and family commitments with grandchildren and aging parents. So posting each day has been a mean challenge.  

Over the last few weeks especially since returning from Brazil I have struggled most days not with ideas or indeed the blog in general; just a nagging fear that at some point I would run out of steam and the blog would die.  It became a recurring nightmare and I was getting anxious until each day when I pressed ‘publish’ and then the nagging doubt would begin to bubble up again,

However the fear seemed to subside and  a sense peace came back. Nonetheless, with this time of uncertainty and then the relative calm I began to consider making some changes to the blog.  It has always been my dream to be a little more creative.  I have even  dabbled in poetry and added some of my own illustrations as a relieve from photographs.

This might be time when I take a leap in faith and perhaps have a weekly ‘creation’  

So here is my attempt to demonstrate a vision board with my dreams of the moment  and a prayer.

May this Vision board resemble my hopes and dreams, that one day soon my posts will become more creative and imaginative. 

Thank you Readers have  good day and please comment!

    Hi helen, your blog is great, I hope I can manage to be as avid as you soon! Can I ask, where did you get the materials to do this type of printing? I’ve wanted to try it for a while but have no idea where you can get supplies. Hope you have a great weekend! X
