HOW TO MAKE A CRAP BOARD – GET FACE TO FACE WITH YOUR LIFE
My favorite workshop to facilitate is a program focusing on VISION BOARDS. I just love them. Vision boards have totally propelled my life into what it is today. I have used vision boards throughout my life whenever I felt stuck, frustrated, off track, un-loved & un-worthy. I think I came out of the womb knowing the power of a vision board. Heck, just the other day I layed out a vision board on my desktop and covered it with a piece of glass so that I see it all day long!
Staring at my vision board makes me happy...or merry! The words and images that I chose uniquely represent what I am wanting to attract. It keeps me focused on my goals and gives me a swift kick in the ass when I need it. Next, you have to hang your vision board in a place where you see it serveral times a day. This will insure that the images and words become top of mind awareness. Making you ready for all of the goodness that is about to flow your way. I usually hang my vision board in the bathroom or bedroom, this time I decided to create one my desk. Whatever you do, don't just make it and file it away. Things just seem to unfold and opportunities seem to be placed in front of me, crazy as that sounds. People call me “lucky,” I call me “prepared”.
Earle Nightingale says that, luck is just preparedness on steroids. I can do that. I can hold onto a vision and put things in place to allow for the flow to happen. But the caveat here is that I then am the one that has to take action. That part can be a bit scary because afterall, who am I to live such a beautiful life? What? Who am I NOT to? Nonetheless, it can be scary once things begin to appear or doors begin to open. There is a lot of head stuff that has to happen in order to feel worthy or ready for all the goodness the world has to offer. Vision boards can help with that.
Oprah has this to say about vision boards, watch it here:
Some people think vision boards are all fluff and are a silly waste of time. Where do you fall? Have you ever created a vision board? I have so many stories that have happened in my life which I can directly point to one of my vision boards for. And if you hang around with me long enough, you'll get to hear them all.
But for the non-believers out there…I suggest you do a Crap Board. Mark Waldman describes Crap Boards in this way, putting down on paper everything that is bothering you and thinking about it deeply, helps to release the worry. A kind of meditation, if you will.Take a deep look at the life you have. Write down everything you hate about your life. In detail. Pull out magazines and cut out images and words that reflect how you feel about your current sucky life and then...let that shit go!
Don’t miss a thing, use the acronym below to you make sure you have the bases cover:
Paste all of the images and words on a board and hang out in front of it for a while. So, now how do you feel? That’s what you've got. Now if I were you, I would take the thing outside and burn it and go back inside and begin to build a vision of the life you want.
Build it and it will come!

I'd be over thoughts like this but nope. There they were staring at me in the face. I wanted to keep sharing but I looked at this event as a lesson I needed to learn. What kept running through my thoughts was, "do what you love and forget the rest." Have you heard that before?
I had gotten so wrapped up in the social media thing that I wasn't loving what I was doing anymore. I had set up rigid deadlines for my on-line presence and had to learn new apps and programs to keep up. It was time consuming and totally inteferred with what I love to do. So, here I was faced with a dilema, so I became quiet to be able to hear what was about to bubble up.
On the bright side I found that it was time for a change anyway. Just like getting a new hairdo, I was ready for a new look and feel. But where do you start when you want a new you? Soul searching baby...lots of soul searching. And let me tell you, sometimes that ain't pretty. It was almost more frustrating to figure out this new path and get excited about the unfoldling, than it was to just scratch the whole idea. I started and stopped, and started and stopped. Until, the path became clear.
Finding a clear path that creates thoughts of abundance instead of scarcity takes time. It takes time to quiet the mind and listen to that inner guidance that always has your best interest at heart. Then as I listened, "Braving Midlife" came about as many of you (my followers) had been referring to me as "brave." That was scarey. I didn't see myself as brave and yet as I looked back through the years of journals that I kept, the clients I served, the people I placed myself in front of, I realized that I am all of that and more. I am excited about what lies ahead, no matter my age. I am doing more of the work that I love than ever before, all while living in a foreign country. And all I had to do was let go and listen.
So as I begin to pull together, define and refine what midlife means to me, I will share with you my experiences, the lessons, and the people that I meet along with way, in hopes that this will inspire you to step forward into the beautiful human being that you are and share that person with the world.
As time goes on, I hope you will have an opportunity to join me on my travels, so be sure to sign up for my newsletter. And as my programs begin to move to an on-line platform I will be sure to keep you informed. For those of you that have an inkling of becoming a midlife entrepreneur I have so much in store for you. My life is full from me doing what I love and I wish that for you as well.
