I was really surprised at the direction my board took this year. I had been thumbing through every magazine and catalog that I found all month long . . . clipping images that appealed to me in some way, and then clipping words and phrases.
When I sat down last weekend to see what I'd collected and how they spoke to me, I was somewhat surprised at the sheer number of word-phrases I'd clipped! And how, taken as a whole, those word-phrases told a tale of discovery, exploration, and . . . yeah . . . possibility!
So I decided to go for simple and spare. I tossed aside the images. And I created a little "poem" with my word-phrases. Just in case you can't read it in the photo above, here's the poem that I created from a month's worth of word-clipping :
Wander with purpose
See the world through a different lens . . . go forth . . . get crackin'
Give it a whirl . . . off the grid
Spread your wings . . . rise and shine
Don't be chicken . . . chart an entirely new course
Change everything . . . go bold
Jump start a whole new ballgame
Roll out a new blueprint
Unleash your inner character
Go with the flow . . . discover the unexpected . . . no rules, just movement
Less can do so much more . . . do more of what you love
Time is precious
Crave good things
Create endless possibilities
Live in full bloom . . . be an inspiration
You've come a long way, baby.
Looks like . . . POSSIBILITY . . . to me!
