I just looked at a graphic which is about the 7 things you need to do for your “vision board.” I have NEVER been able to do one of these. I made a brief list of where I’m trying to go:
- House: no more culling required.
- Writing: projects finished
- Job: make $.
- Debt: gone.
I have no other goals. I have no pressing need to become someone else, create something others want, etc. I suppose that after 50+ years of trying to do something I eventually did, that is learn to deal (mostly) with the PTSD and the pain associated with it, the rest is anticlimactic.
I’d like to be DONE with the long-term projects: writing, house culling of stuff, and I’d like us to be debt-free because I worry about our retirement.
All that said? Do I have other things I’d like to do?
- I’d like to sell my crafts, more I’d like to sell articles about doing crafts, so that I don’t have to keep hauling STUFF to shows to try to convince someone to buy whatever.
- There’s some math things I’d like to play with.
- I’d like to do the tutorials I’ve had in mind: wood stack, using my cleaning plan, etc.
- I’d like to learn how to control my body so I can lessen as much as possible the effects of being anxiety-ridden from the PTSD.
Except for the 3rd one, they’re “pie in the sky” and I won’t be depressed or see myself as a failure if I don’t do any of them.
I know where I’m going and I believe that (eventually) I can get there. Why find another person’s image which is likely to not be very close and put it on paper? What’s the point?
I know people I respect who make vision boards.Maybe I’m different? Fighting to see myself as basically not a bad person for 50 some odd years and then getting there makes a lot of things others get bent about pretty unimportant.
That said? I wish I could do a vision board even for this much. But it seems silly to even try.
