I needn’t state the obvious by saying that 2013 is right around the corner, but as it is, I thought I’d share a pre-New Year’s Eve activity idea. For those of you who believe (as I do) in the power of positive thinking and your thoughts creating your reality, a visualisation mood board may appeal to you. I have created many over the years and I am always astounded that they work so well! Among the dozens I have created, I recall particularly one I made just before I landed my “dream job”, another created just prior to my first successful pregnancy and another I stuck to the back of my bedroom door to keep me positive/help me heal whilst on bed rest after I received my high risk pregnancy diagnosis this year. Based on the incredibly positive results I have had from doing affirmations/meditation/visualisation exercises, I have every reason to believe that mood boards such as this help aid/affirm powerful intention, increase motivation and evoke feelings of positivity. You can easily create your own using a page layout program such as InDesign, make one using magazine images and ye olde cut-and-paste method or, if really pressed for time, why not create a Pinterest board called “2013” and cram it with pins of the things you’d like to fill your life with this coming year?
Here’s to 2013! And here’s to all your dreams for the year coming true! In the words of Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” xx, Miss Marzipan
