  As you can see I’m done with my vision board. I will explain what each item means. There is not much but it is a very meaningful board.

The right side of the board has books, a sold sign, a bible verse,a radio show type of microphone, and a car. The meaning? Sometimes it may not be exactly what it seems; but I think in this case the pictures tell the story! The books? I want to be published but beyond that I want my books to be valuable and impact lives. The sold sign? In my real estate career I want to be successful. I want to close on many homes for many families! The bible verse? I strive to live my life in such a way as to be walking in Jesus’ footsteps. This verse helps me to remember that! The entire verse reads “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”  Microphone? I want to start either a Youtube channel or radio show on the subjects that I write about. The car? Yes…I would like a new car.

The middle part shows “happy clients”, a ring, and a cruise ship. The happy clients is just that! I want to have happy clients in both of my chosen fields; writing and real estate. I want to far exceed all expectations…give them more than their moneys worth! The ring? That is a symbol for my marriage. 2013 brought many challenges to our marriage, things have happened that need healing. The ring is a symbol that our marriage will be healthy (and sure…I wouldn’t mind a new diamond! ) The cruise ship? Simple…I want to cruise! I love cruising and wish to do so this year.

The left side of the board shows A bible verse and a bible.  The verse? This is my favorite verse and is always on my vision boards. The entire verse reads “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” I recite this verse as a prayer. It reminds me to let go and let God have it all!  The Bible? I want to stay in the Word and make sure it is a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path!

So there you have it! My 2014 Vision Board! It is meaningful to me; maybe more so than any other year. Yes, I would say more so. 2014 is bringing much change to our lives; hopefully good, but definitely change. I hope to achieve all that I desire and am willing to work for it. It is amazing when I think about what happened to me in 2013! These things that happened directly challenged everything I believe in and write about. The journey is not over but God has given me what I need to be an authority on forgiveness, unconditional love, and gratitude! And if you want to know what I am talking about you will have to continue reading!

A Rampage of Gratitude!

What can gratitude do for you? Gratitude opens you up to all the success, joy, and happiness that GOD (the Universe, Source) has to offer!

Knowing this; why would you wait another minute?? Start a rampage of gratitude in your life today!

Rampages are better than trickles….don’t ya think?

Overcoming limiting beliefs…

breakthechainsBreak the chains that bind you! Knock down those walls! Have an AHA moment! Breakdown to breakthrough! Any way you say it, we need to get to that place in our lives, where we know we are living the life God meant for us! One step in that direction is to over come our limiting beliefs (thoughts)

You know the ones; the ones which keep you from living your dream!  If you could design your life any way you choose, what would it look like? Would it look like the one you are now living? If so, congratulations! You have arrived and probably know what I am talking about!  You know that you have to overcome limiting beliefs in order to reach your dreams! And to sustain them! I know you know…because you have been successful in creating a life which matches your dreams!

But the rest of us, who are still struggling to get there, what about us? We need to overcome our limiting beliefs! We need to write a different story for ourselves. There are many books on the subject of “your thoughts create your reality”  one such book is written by Dr. Wayne Dyer “Wishes Fulfilled”   * just a side note here, some people may take exception to Dr. Dyer’s thoughts, in so much as he tells you, early in his book, to recognize we are divine beings. He talks about the great “I AM that I AM”…or to embrace the statement “I AM GOD” ,  at this point in the book some will throw it out exclaiming it to be heresy. I say, if you start reading, give it a chance,read through it. I am not a fan of saying that I AM GOD. But I found a way to embrace his philosophy without having to make that particular proclamation! I ask, and Dr. Dyer only asks, that you remain open to the words in the book, allow them to do what they will for you as you read them.

I have read a lot of Wayne Dyer’s writing. As a mater of fact, it is his writing, as well as a few others, that helped me get where I am.  He writes about our thoughts and how they influence our life. Definitely worth looking him up at your favorite reading place!

With the thought “our thoughts create our reality” in mind, let me ask you ” what do you think about when thinking of your life?”  is it positive?  Are you happy with your life? Are you encouraging of yourself? Are you encouraging of others and their successes?  Because, yes, how we feel about other people and their success makes a huge difference to our success! If we can’t be happy, genuinely happy, for others and their success, then we will have a harder time realizing our own success and sustaining it! We may glimpse it, we may get a taste of it, but we will not keep it. It will be like a bird and eventually fly away.  Are there exceptions to this rule? Of course! Aren’t there always?!?!

So I  work on these 2 things:

1. Creating the life I want by believing and acting as “if” it has already happened. I’ve a vision board, I use my imagination, I get into that place where I can feel my life as I want it, I speak positivity and encouragement to myself and about myself to others…….

2. I am genuinely happy for others when they reach their successes! And this is easy! I love when others are successful! It helps me to get in the mood for my success!

There is more we can do to get where we want to be. To break through those walls! But this is enough for today. I am pooped! I think I will go read a book!

Have a great rest of your day y’all!
