So, just a quick post, but I thought I'd share my latest project :) I've been working on creating an inspirational board that I can always refer to when I start getting unfocused or just overwhelmed.
Here's the pictures of it ;)
The photos on the right are the things of importance; Family, Temple, perspective, future children and marriage. They are things that overall, make my life the happiest. Nothing else compares to that happiness. Nothing.
And in the middle, the cross that magically started to form as I put photos on the board, are 6 photos that mean a lot to me. There's the picture of Christ in the middle - the center of everything I do and the main reason for everything else - and a photo of me as a little girl underneath, to never forget to be kind and nurturing to that child that is still inside, and three quotes that have helped me a lot in my life since finding them. There's the, 'Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway' which I use as a personal mantra whenever I'm faced with my anxiety or doubt or just generally everything. There's 'Strive for Progress, not Perfection' quote which helps me to put aside my perfectionism which can be crushing sometimes on my hopes and dreams. There's the Brad Wilcox quote about being shaped by God. And then there's the scripture, Romans 8:18, which is one of my favourites. All these things draw me closer to Christ, and that's why they are formed in that way :)
Slowly I'll add more photos, and as time changes and I change as a person, there will be different quotes and different goals (Marriage instead of a Mission, after I serve. Children instead of Marriage, after I meet my Future Husband, etc) but for now, it's a constant reminder of what I personally want right now, and the encouragement to work towards and not be scared :)
