One thing I love about the house I grew up in is that I eventually inherited a room that had all the wall and closet space I needed for my “vision wall.” Not content with just a corkboard or an illustration board of inspiring images, I used the back of a huge divider closet to tack images and goals that were important to me. This vision wall served as the foundation for my journey toward authenticity, at around the same time that I graduated from university and went on to “the real world.”
Since that time, dreamboarding has become an important activity for me, usually done during moments of deep reflection (and/or confusion), or preceding major milestones, such as my marriage. Now that I’m going through dreamboarding phase again–in preparation for a journey toward a more creative. authentic, and balanced life–I’m putting up here my recent dreamboards, to serve as reminders for the life I ought to be living and the elements that I would like to take with me on this journey.
Like I said, this is all part of a renewed creative journey, and my only wish is that I find the courage and the strength to stay on this path, so that I may reap its fruits and rewards–whatever form those may take.
