plural noun: dream boards
1. A vision board or dream board is a collage of images, pictures and affirmations of one's dreams and desires, designed to serve as a source of inspiration and motivation, and to use the law of attraction to attain goals.
Do you have these?! I really don't. I have an idea. But I haven't been to Michaels yet to by myself some crafty shiz to widdle myself a dreamboard.. I mean its been on my bucket list.
I read something the other day.
"Remember when you wanted what you currently have"
Boom. Think about that. Although, Everyday leaves me wanting more. More life experiences, More laughter, More money, More thinnnnnngs. But why?!... Why are we allllways wanting more?! Life experiences are one thing.... Sky diving, Driving Fast, & pulling the ebrake and doing a 180.... Globe Trotting.... Somehow it seems all of the really fun life experiences everyone has on their beloved boards & lists are ironically the dangerous ventures that could potentially kill you a little quicker. Is that the part that makes it more fun? The thrill of it? To say you did it? Or maybe to talk about it for years to come.
Money is one thing. You can have a ton of it or a little of it. It sort of does make the ole world go round. But it's all relative. The more you make, the more things you have. Hence more bills...hence your prob still living paycheck to paycheck. Unless you're a legit millionaire. But then again.. Keeping up with the Jones's is a bish.. Not worth it. Now I'm not saying sister doesn't like a nice thing or two. I do. Who doesn't?! I seem to acquire a lot of things. I tend to be a little too generous with my money. But it makes me feel good to give. One of my New Years Resolutions is to save more money.... But let me tell you I'm gonna have to hide it from myself...In some foreign bank account that will require my first born to obtain a single dollar... My sister has always been so fiscally responsible...But I have a lot of fun... But that will only last until we are 70 and she is loaded and I'm broke. Joke's on jesca.
If I had a dream board.. Pictures would include :
A little red Alpha Romeo Convertible.
A lakeside Cabin in the Mountains.
A Kloset like Khloe
I'd say this is a decent start to my dream board. But when it comes to Bucket lists.. Is there truly anything I need to do before I die? Of course traveling is on there... Maybe Like swim with pigs in the bahamas. Drink an espresso on the coast of capri. A spot of tea at Buckingham. But would I just die if i didn't complete my bucket list? No. What you don't know, can't hurt you right?... So if i don't know how amazing it would be to have espresso on a balcony in Italy...What am I really missing?! Brings me back to what I read. "Remember when you wanted what you currently have" It's like everyone you chat with, they ask what you do for a living, if you're married, if you own a house...But they never ask you if you're happy. That's everything. I currently have the best job ever. I own a house that I don't actually live in.but What else could anyone need? What else could a sister dream for.?... A dream board is there to encourage you to work towards your goals... And girlfriend is all about that . But If I never have any of those things... I'll be alright. Because I finally have everything that I've always needed.. Sit back and reflect folks. It's my new fave thing.
