Wine Wednesday: Vision Board

Vision Board

Finally finished! Doesn’t it look nice?  It’s my vision board.  I made it a goal to complete one of these before 2018 got away from and I’m so happy I did.  I started one of these years ago and never got around to finishing it.  I think the reason I didn’t finish my first one was mostly because I thought I had to find pictures and images that looked exactly what I saw in my head.  Impossible, half the time.  So, it was no wonder it never got finished.  I could never find exactly what I saw in my head in magazines or online.  But once I realized that the images placed on a vision board are supposed to be a representation of what I wanted, rather than an identical picture, putting this together become a breeze.

I plan to make three more of these, with more focused themes.

Plus, a number of articles state how powerful a vision board can be for manifesting the things you want from your life.  It’s not a “to-do” list, but a very powerful way of connecting our subconscious minds with our conscious efforts and actions.  Goals, ambitions, desires, whatever it may be.  Many have said it worked for them.  And this single and hustlin’ female is more than willing to see if all those claims are true.

Has anyone else created a vision board in which something from it manifested and become real in your life?  Please let me know!

 

(For those of you who notice the bottle of Merlot to the left side of the picture… you’re a person after my own heart.  Bay Bridge’s Merlot.  Consider this Foodless’ two buck chuck.  Literally! $2.79.  Got me a few bottles because I could and I wanted them.  And it’s bad for a Merlot in the middle of the week in the new year.  Just sayin’)

Wine Wednesday: Wild Horse Merlot

I was only supposed to be looking at an apartment.  Beautiful. Not as modern as I would like. Carpet flooring …ech! But, two modest bedrooms, one bathroom, upstairs unit, kitchen balcony, kitchen comes with stove and dishwasher.  Apartment has space for washer and dryer in the unit.  Huge living room closet. Questionable. $1,500/mo.  Location: San Pedro. Ugh. Why?

A friend of a friend owns the property and just had his recent tenant vacate the place in July. Beautiful view of the ocean and glimpses of Catalina Island.  Just an hour’s commute from my underpaying job. 

But when he brought out this bottle of Wild Horse Merlot, it perked my spirits right up.  I am not in a position to move 25 miles away from my largest income source – although that is a common Los Angeles practice – it doesn’t mean I should remove myself completely from the market altogether.   Two glasses in and I almost asked for an application.  Red wine does those kinds of things to you.  But I liked it.it wasn’t chilled but tasty of its tart flavored fruits. 

It’d be nice to find a new affordable place soon.
