I took a break from writing because I wasn’t feeling inspired. Ever felt like you’ve been working so hard doing absolutely nothing of what you desire to do?! Well, I’ll be the first to admit, that’s how I was feeling, how I’ve been feeling. I’ve worked hard for my degrees, my job and now I want to work hard for my purpose. Doing what makes me happy, feeling good and inspired. It’s such a process, it’s not an easy one, but it’s possible.
It first starts with a vision. I visualize myself waking up in the morning. I thank God for blessing me with the ability to be up and alive again. I stretch, I stir, and I still lay down for a minute. Then I feed my dog. Next, I shower, brush my teeth and listen to someone motivating me with their words of wisdom and scriptures on youtube. Next, I grab my favorite drink, hmmm, my Cafe Bustelo or my Teavana. Coffee it is. I place it on a tray with my favorite fruits; mangos and strawberries! After dodging my dog, because he wants to be my shadow, I head upstairs. I open the door to no other than my at-home office. Y’all following me still?!
So, I open the door, and I see my framed vision board staring back at me. I look at it, nod, and take in all the progress I’ve made since creating it. I sit on my comfy futon-like couch. Ikea inspired, and then I look at my office decor. Oh, yes, I’ve placed my tray down at this point, in the center of the room on my small coffee table. Across is my wood and gold desk with my new Mac desktop. Now, believe me, I’m a budget shopper, but I’m going to need this $1200 plus to get me through. Especially being that I'm not the greatest at maintaining a computer. I can't forget my huge bookcase, taking up most of my wall space! I can’t tell you how many books I have, but trust me, you’d find a book that you’d like. I sip on coffee, munch on my mangoes and strawberries, and start up my computer.
I began to pray before I log on to my business site. Praying to God to guide me in helping me, help these women with their lives.
Therein lies a piece of my purpose, my vision. Now it’s time to visualize yours.
