Create A Vision For Your Life

Create A Vision For Your Life

Though I love the beauty of serendipity and believe it has a huge place in our lives, I also believe that in order to create big things in your life, you need a vision — and a loose plan. Visions are an overhead view of the pieces that create a life you love.

When I look at my own big juicy vision, it includes work that lights up my soul, excellent meals created with my own two hands, passionate kisses, glasses of wine under the moonlight, and a ravenous consumption of novels in cozy chairs and poolside. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m also a realist.

 

In order to make my vision come to fruition, it needs two more things:  a plan and taking action.  You need a plan because without a target to aim at, it’s throwing spaghetti on the wall. And darling, if you think you can make a vision a reality without taking action, you’ll be stuck in the “dreamer” space.

Part of being a realist is understanding that sometimes I’m going to get dirt under my fingernails. You have to be willing to do the work. Sometimes, you have to know when to ease up on yourself. And sometimes, darling, you have to shake things up when a big chunk of your vision is missing.

While I know that nothing in life is certain. I know for a fact that visions and plans are incredibly valuable.  Without a vision, there’s no starting point. If you don’t create a plan, you’ll never discover what works and what doesn’t. Without deadlines, you will procrastinate.

Want to live the life of your dreams? Then you need a vision for your life.

Are you living life by the seat of your pants? Not sure what you really want? Feeling scattered?  Or are you holding so tightly to a plan of how things are “supposed” to look, that you’re about to snap that plan in half?
