A Big Wow From My Vision Quest

Last week I did something I’ve never done before. I made a vision board. And it was fun, eye-opening, and I’ve already seen benefit from it.

Last Thursday, I attended the Vision Quest Live Workshop with Jenn Colby because, since retiring I’m looking for a new focus and the answers to “What do I REALLY want to do now?” My friend and On Pasture author John Marble was there for similar reasons, and to help him consider what kind of succession plan he wants for his ranch.

I was like a lot of the folks joining online in that I hadn’t really done the homework. Yes, I had downloaded the free ebooklet in advance, but I just wasn’t equipped to fill out a list of 30 things I wanted to do, to be, and to have. I was just out of the habit of dreaming. Instead, I sorted through my digital photos, and pulled examples of all the things that made me happy. I figured I could put them on my vision board as a way to get started.

Wow, did it ever work! When Jenn turned on the music and turned us loose to work on our boards, I started taping and writing, and suddenly I could dream again! Just seeing the pictures clicked something in my brain and my heart and I began developing ideas for what was important to me and what I wanted to have, to do, and to be. It was an amazing feeling!

Even better, I’ve already started work on some of the things I want to do. It’s like my brain sees the pictures and suddenly, without me even trying, it comes up with ways to get these things done. Again, Wow! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it wasn’t such a rapid change, that’s for sure.

I’m checking in with Jenn to see if she’ll offer another workshop because I want to work more on my board. If you’d like to hear when the next workshop happens, just download the free ebooklet to get on her notification list and then get started dreaming up your future. It’s really fun and so helpful.

Thanks for reading!


P.S. Here’s my first try at a Vision Board. It isn’t complete by any means. But every time I look at it I think about what I want to add/change/do more of.
