Jason has been asking for a vision board for a few weeks. One side of our fridge faces into the kitchen, and I got the idea to cover it with chalkboard Contact Paper and make it a vision board. Chalkboard Contact Paper was harder to find than I would have thought, but I finally ordered some from e-bay (Amazon had it, too.) There isn’t much on the vision board, yet. Well, only the word Dream and some magnets, because now I’m intimidated. I want to make sure whatever makes the cut is worthy of the dream board. I asked Jason what he wanted to put on the vision board (it was his idea, remember?) He said, “I want all the leaves gone from the yard”, so I wrote “leaves gone.” But I think that’s a dumb dream so I erased the words once he left the kitchen and he still hasn’t noticed they are gone.
Am I making too much out of this? Probably. I need to just dive right in and dream. I think I’m going to go old school and tear pictures out of magazines and put them up. Kind of like an analog Pintrest. I have to be careful when I’m wishing for things. There is a fine line between hope and discouragement when it comes to these kinds of things. I want to make sure my board fills me up with “what if” and doesn’t weigh me down with “probably won’t.” It’s funny how much promise a blank space can have. I’m curious to see how a full space feels.
