My Vision Board- It's with Me all of the Time Now!

My Vision Board- It’s with Me All of the Time Now!

When this month’s Cloudburst asked us to do a Vision Board, I thought… “Why not!”

After all, we’re all becoming more and more visual.  Look at the popularity of Pinterest!   I also wanted to do it as a personal challengeand I also wanted to try out a new iPhone app that I’d recently downloaded called Frame Artist.

Now the beauty of this is that I have it on my iPhone, which is with me all of the time.



Get back to yoga


vision board Simplify by editing

Call friends instead of texting and Facebook

What I want to do?

1. READ- I read quite a bit every daybut I have found that the ever present Internet has gotten in the way of just sitting down with a book (albeit one that is on my iPad).

2. YOGA- I’ve been working on it every day, adding a little more to my routine.

3. SIMPLIFY-It’s what we preach to our clients when selling their homes.  I’ve been editing everything and really going paperless.  All of this will free up my time to do more of the above!

4. CALL- I’m all for Facebook and textingbut I want to make an effort to actually call some of my out of town friends more.  

Well, there you go.  That wasn’t too hard!

Kathy, I'm all for simplifying and less technology. I feel the concept of being connected with technology is flawed ... it does not connect us ... we connect when we are 1:1 on the phone and having face time.

Love your vision board, and so glad you like yoga as much as we do.  We are each other's vision board. A

Hi Kathy - That's a great idea for keeping a vision board front-of-mind, although I'd do mine on my iPad - it's with me a bit less than my phone, but I can actually read the screen.

Kathy that is a very well balanced vision board.

But I do have to say this, if I was to get into some of those yoga positions I might not ever be able to walk again ..... LOL

It is good to see that you are planning to read more books. Great idea.

We also need to simplify our lives. It is easier said than done.

I've used vision boards for years... but this is a great idea... I also agree with you about the calling... texting is wonderful but doesn't replace a phone call or better still a visit... Happy Day

Kathy, I am loving how you put your vision board together. I am wondering if I can put something like this on my Android phone. I will check to see if it's available.

Kathleen- I don't mind texting for some quick questionsbut I had a good conversation with a friend in Texas and it was so much better than texting each other. 

Alexandra- I was so spoiled when we lived in Leesburg, my yoga teacher lived down the street from me and was so incredible.

Dick- LOL....  that's exactly why I had my husband get the Samsung Galaxy .. so he could read the screen!

George- If you do, would you take a "selfie?!"

Anna- it's pretty easy to use.  I love trying out new apps. 

Scott- be careful... it's addictive. 

Roy- I'm reading the latest one by Preston and Child and have to force myself to put it down. 

Richard and Beth- phoning or better yet, meeting in person!  

Jerry- I think there's an Android app for it.  Actually there are all kinds of apps that you can use.  Let me know if you can't find one.

I am a big believer in calling people.  I am not a big Facebook fan.  But, you really have a great vision board.  Maybe I will give yoga a shot, too.

Hi Kathy -- aren't you clever?   I'm not much into "vision boards" but I have a pretty clear idea of what I want and a written plan to achieve it.   I especially like your call versus text/email concept of communication -- it's really about getting back to basics of business and friendship.   Good post.

Kathy, I so prefer a call to a text. You can get your answers etc so much faster. That being said, texting does keep me in touch with my sons LOL.

Awesome Kathy! I need to CALL more too! Hmm, maybe I need to call you? Maybe I should wait until I'm over my head cold. It hurts to talk right now! :-(

Sometimes I look back and wonder where you get the time to do all of this Kathy.  Thank you for the continued inspiration!
