Adventures in Art, Motherhood and Inspirations

[22] Do you have a visualisation board?

I’m recently setting up my visualisation board and pasting pictures of things I had never thought I would want to buy. But amazingly the idea of visualising paired up with positive spoken words yield belief in everything. I’m putting everything I had wished for, now desire, in that board. A sea view bungalow in whichever part of the world we live, a BMW for hubby, a summer palace in India for retirement and many more things.

Recently I have gotten a habit of getting into stores and not be surprised or embarrased about the prices there. Ever since reading The Secret, I had stopped telling that anything is not affordable for me. Why yes, even a 1000 dollar dress is affordable for me right now, I just have priorities and I don’t want to spend 1000 dollars in a dress. I’d rather spend that money on a better laptop, or my monthly rental.

Couple of days back, I was at Loewe and found this long purse. I’m surprised that this is just what I wanted and hadn’t been able to find it elsewhere. The listed price was SGD 1100. Dear God, all my other purses I use are 20 to 30 bucks and the one I currently use, which I love too was a freebie. A few months back, I would have told the salesman that it’s too expensive and I would never ever think of buying it. But I did something different. I asked him if I could take a picture of it for my visualisation board.

And I said “We are definitely buying it pretty soon”. And saying that itself gave a pleasure of having bought a 1000 bucks purse. It is ready to be put on my visualisation board and my refridgerator.

And as I write this, I notice something. What am I saying my dreams aloud on the internet and making a virtual promise that I AM going to achieve my dreams. But that gives more confidence and more reason for me to shut down the computer and get out of my house right now to do some more business work.
