one of the pics on my vision board.
Yesterday a girlfriend of mine came over my apartment. Usually I don't let anyone in Mr. DE's and my room because we're both pretty messy people.(Hey, De's not perfect :-)) but my room was neat this time, and I wanted to show her some dresses I had just bought from Zara (love that store!). Anyway when she walked in, I saw her staring intently at my vision board. She apparently had never seen one. If you don't know what a vision board is, let me explain. It's a board where you literally put pics of things that you envision for yourself in the future. Since I know that my dream is to be a reporter/Oprah (I'll do both)I have the above pic of me, and a pic of Oprah with her audience and my head over Oprah's. I also have pics of people that I will meet one day. (Notice I say "i will" not "i hope" because if you believe it will happen, it will.) A few years ago, I was told that I could never even step foot in the news business, that they were actually firing people and not hiring. DE listens to no one except her heart. I now work in the news business. Still behind the scenes, but just wait, I'm sure I'll be coming to a tv near you soon.
If you have doubts about yourself, I encourage you to start your vision board. Put things that you know will happen soon. Mine has pics of Oprah, Michelle Obama, and Jennifer Lopez. It has pics of me in various reporting stances. It has pics of the house I will buy my parents once I make it big. It has quotes that I live by. It's basically my dream on a board.
I hope you'll start one soon.
Let me know if you need help.
