Vision Board

Last summer, I was perusing a newsstand looking for a good magazine to buy for a long roadtrip. The usual suspects all looked like they’d last about 20 minutes—and depress me in the meantime (there’s only so much you can read about doing things more perfectly)—but something on the cover of O caught my eye, and I bought it. Many hours down the road, I found myself reading an article on creating a vision board aloud to my husband. Not only was the article a fascinating look at an unconventional way of focusing goals and purpose, but it lead, tangentially, to hours of conversation the likes of which have been hard to follow through with since children arrived. The article might be six months old, it might be a little California for the average reader, and it might even propose an exercise in futility, but it’s still on my mind.
