Nice to see you!

Three major events occurred for me last year (2010), all in the space of about 2 weeks. I turned 50. The following day I got married. Two weeks later, my oldest daughter became pregnant with her first child and my first grandchild.

Most middle-aged people will tell you that in their minds, they still feel 20 something. It's the same for me.

Wasn't it only yesterday that I was planning a night out with guys from the surf club? That gorgeous new perm. Flaired, cuffed denims and the red t-shirt with the off-the-shoulder frill. Corked platform wedgies. **sigh**

Suddenly I'm looking in the mirror and wondering how 30 years can flash by so damned quickly!

So here I am in cyberspace, sharing my genuine shock and horror with anyone who'll listen and maybe I'll even meet some other over 50s who find themselves in the same predicament!

Welcome to my dilemna!!

Happiest of Happy Abode

I did take advantage of my Sunday off by staying in bed and requesting my morning coffee.

But we had a big day planned at the shop, so I had to drag myself into action eventually.

Adoring Husband moved my white side board from our house to the shop and then spent the next few hours attaching shelving to the shop walls to display my photographs and other assorted wall art. He added a few hooks to some designated wall space and a mirror to the treatment room wall.

Primrose, The Motivator and I spent some time working out how to display our stock in the new layout and then stood back to admire our handiwork.

It deserved hugs all round!

The Motivator gave Primrose a lift home and she prepared lunch while AH and I moved the furniture back into place and cleaned up the mess we'd made.

It was a most satisfying day and I'm looking forward to going into work tomorrow to see the result with fresh eyes.

I'll take photos tomorrow (or today as you are reading this) so you can see how fabulous we look now.

I've spent the afternoon and evening trying to write up a flyer for our Vision Board workshops and printing out pages of symbols and pictures that can be used on the boards. I also found lots of examples of vision boards to help people get an idea of what they need to do.

Here is my draft -

What is a Vision Board?

A 'vision board' is a collage of your visions for your future.  It can be what you see for the coming year, 2 years or even longer term - an imaginative daily reminder of your wishes and dreams that usually swim around in your head and never see the light of day.

We will help you take those thoughts and dreams and put them where you can see them so that you can focus daily on your aspirations.

It's a sacred space that helps you be more proactive in creating a positive future for yourself, and to remind you of your goals in life.

Your vision board can cover all different areas of your life such as relationships, career, personal growth, health, finances, holidays and more.

You will create your sacred space to attract your attention from the robotic routines that normally fill your days.

Seeing your creation every day will inspire and motivate you to think about what you really want and helps you to both consciously and subconsciously work towards the goal and stay connected.

Your vision board will help you to notice opportunities and spur you to take action.

The workshop will be a fun, stress free way to recognise your dreams, hopes and desires. It doesn't have to be perfect because there is no right or wrong way to create your vision board. It just needs to 'be' to work.

So come and joins us, on your own or with a couple of friends. We provide all the materials for your vision board plus morning tea. You may have some pictures or quotes that you'd like to add to your board, so bring any special additions that you would like to add to your creation.

Where? The Happy Abode
When?  Thursday 4th January 2018  9am - 1pm
Cost?    $65 - all materials are provided plus morning tea

Phone 074193 4979 and talk to Roz or Tracey to book your spot

I did a lot of online research to help determine a competitive price and this is a very good price for what is provided.

I'm pretty excited about running the first workshop because I've created a few boards over the years and they have been really successful for me.

My first vision board helped me meet Adoring Husband. It helped me move from the country to the coast. It helped me manifest successful outcomes for my kids and it helped me find my creativity and artistry.

My last vision board helped me get my teeth fixed, lose weight, become healthier and stronger and spend more time with the Chicklet family.

My current vision board has already helped me create my website and start the business, travel for the 'journey' work, feel empowered and in control of my life and keeps me refocussing on my health when I stray slightly.

I love vision boards.

Now I need to focus on getting some sleep. I have a feeling that it's going to be a big week!

Nite all.
