Outdated Dreams and Evolving Desires
Saying goodbye to my dog, Scout, has me contemplating what the next 17 years looks like, and my eyes were suddenly opened to my environment.
The other day I looked at my vision board and realized it has become outdated.
While some of my goals have manifested, other goals are no longer important to me. As an example, I have self-published a book, but I no longer wish to become a public speaker.
My vision board became invisible, just like clutter or old-fashioned home décor. So, I have been organizing, tossing, and re-evaluating what is necessary for my future journey.
I began with my office and trashed old files, manuals, and CDs. I had so many CDs of books and courses. I don’t even own a CD player to play these CDs. In the garbage they went. I have two paper grocery bags full to bursting, ready for the firepit. A bonfire is much more fun than a shredder.
Next, I tackled my bookshelf. While I don’t have the heart to throw away books, I don’t need them all out in the open. I put most of them in my newly acquired cupboard space and left the most inspiring ones out for me to reference.
Lastly, I adjusted my vision board. I refocused my financial and business goals. I cleared items that were no longer dreams and added in new desires. My vision board is visible and tantalizing again.
Marie Kondo says, “Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest. By doing this, you can reset your life and embark on a new lifestyle.”
Organizing your space can be an act of self-care. Out with the old to make space for the new. As you evolve, so does your vision for the future. Make sure you don’t get stuck on a path that no longer fits.
Let this be a trigger for you to look at your space with fresh eyes.
What makes you happy? What needs to go? How has your vision changed?
