For the New Year, my daughter and I made creative and inspiring collages to help us stay focused and reach our goals. Its so easy, anyone can make one!
First what we did is get a piece of poster board. Morgan chose red because colors really inspire her to get things done! I chose black because its simple and I wasn’t sure what I was going to put on my board!
Second you are going to need supplies to decorate your board with. Magazine cut outs, photos, ribbons, stamps, glue, tape, scissors, ect. Start putting things on your board! Have fun with it! There are no rules!
In my last post about a pineapple basil smoothie we talked briefly about Inspiration boards. They are wonderfully helpful for wedding planning, party planning, nursery planning, trip planning, new years goals and resolution planning & just plain inspiration!
What’s on my inspiration board?
Ideas that help me to find my voice, follow my heart and love unconditionally.

Gratitude is the open door to abundance.
Enjoy the little things in life… for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.
Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.
Pause for a few seconds to observe the flow of your breath. Become aware of a silent but powerful sense of presence.

Wow. That is a lot of quotes! Dare to listen to your inner voice! Visualize and make it happen! One thing that I did not put on my board that I would like to share with you is my cat Chester. I love this fuzzy guy. Chester Copperpot has lung cancer. Once upon a time, before we knew him, he was a stray kitty, wandering around Whitefish Lake trying to catch bluejays to eat. He was skinny and a little skittish at the time. My daughters found him and he became part of the family. Chester has always been a heavy breather and snorer but he seemed fine. This last fall after our other kitty passed away of old age, Chester started coughing. It seemed very uncomfortable for him, so I took him to the vet. He had a high white blood cell count which indicated infection. He was given medicine and was fine for a few months when the coughing started again. I took him in again thinking he might have allergies. This time he had an X-ray. The X-ray showed that Chester had a BB in his lung. We can only conclude that this happened to him before he come to our family, as we have never seen this sort of wound on him. The constant toxicity in his body has lead to the formation of cancer in his lungs. Chester inspires me because he is very receptive and he responds to the energy around him and he responds accordingly much like a shock absorber as he helps transmute and balance human energies on an emotional level. Anyone who has ever been upset and had a cat come and sit on their lap, know what I am talking about here. Chester has been an amazing addition to our family, if anyone has any experience with Kitty lung cancer, I would love to hear about it.
Whether is traveling, food, family, juice fasting, exercise, people, art, what inspires you?
What would you put on your Inspiration Board?
May many blessings fall upon your in this exciting new year!
