Feeling Anchored Through Change

What word comes to mind when you think about change?

I recently asked people this question on my Facebook page and the responses were all so different. They ranged from “Woohoo!” and “Really?” to “Fear” and “Work!” Every single one is true.

Change is everywhere. If it’s not around us, it’s in us. And it can really make us nuts sometimes! Like when your husband says at 7:30 p.m., “I have to work late, can you take over my bedtime duties with the kids tonight?” just as you load the last dish in the washer and sit down with your favorite book.

Or when someone backs out of a parking space at the mall …straight into the side of your car as you leave the parking lot. That’ll change your plans for the day!

Changes like that, along with the much larger, life-altering ones full of grief and loss, can really throw us off unless we have something to keep us anchored. Always on the lookout for tools to help me keep things together in the midst of change, I was amazed recently by a tool I’d never thought of in that light: the Vision Board.

I highly recommend taking some time to create a visual tool like this for yourself as you continue through this New Year. Check out my short video for more on how to construct a vision board, and how they can keep us anchored during changes we face in our life.

Have a great day!

    Laurie, you are an amazing woman, wife and mother! Thank you for reaching out and investing in others (including me), especially on days when it might seem easier to withdraw into your own very full and demanding world. You are truly an inspiration to me. Thank you for sharing about the vision board. It gave me an idea how to embelish something similar that I do. Your and your family are often in my prayers! Blessings to your and yours.
