I took a webinar class from Hannah Brencher last month. It was on discipline, and the nitty-gritty of making big dreams small realities. One of her homework assignments was making a vision board, so later that week I spent one whole afternoon flipping through magazines clipping out what I found inspirational and challenging.
Every quote and picture and word spoke to my heart and pointed towards my goals, especially for this season of autumn. I have the board nearby, but I see it most as my laptop screensaver almost every day. I truly love the way it turned out and that so little pictures can represent so much of the person I want to become.
This board inspires me to live like this and more:
being a happier person than the grump I was all summer.
looking and feeling more brave. regaining a sparkle in my eye.
working towards a lighter weight and whole health.
conquering loads of homework.
making tangible to-do lists that create more balance and less stress.
rest in reading and netflix. drinking coffee. writing letters.
praying about an upcoming trip.
being the best, truest friend that I can be.
making my phone my least priority, especially when people are around.
immersing myself in prayer.
growing into the person that six-year-old Emilee dreamt of.
being grateful to God. serving well and showing my thanks to those around me.
of course, my personal quote addition that I love so much: writing like flannery. dancing like usher. studying like dietrich. loving like taylor. dressing like audrey. smiling like adam.
living my movie! laughing and watching more jimmy fallon!
