Chocolate and Ice Cream

Here we are at the end of our little mini-blog series and I have to tell you that this week spending time with my family hearing them share about their 2019 Connected Canvas outcomes has meant more that I could ever express. And perhaps someday, I’ll be able to share that with you. But right now, I have one more canvas to share.

A Connected Canvas Story

My husband, Josh, experienced his first Vision Fest last year. He created a board that he felt good about, he believed that his Connected Canvas told the story of what he truly hoped to manifest in 2019. His board spent half of the year displayed by his desk in our office at home and then the second half of the year it hung on the wall in front of the treadmill. 

Josh sat down with his Connected Canvas and shared with me that it truly did tell the story of 2019. He also shared that the Canvas provides hints of what is to possibly come in 2020.

Happy Board Highlights Happy Moments

Last year my girls showed up at Vision Fest due to a lack of childcare. Josh really wanted to experience the event. He’s such a supportive hubby but I digress. While the girls were hanging out watching tv, they eventually came out to see exactly what we were doing. After seeing all the tearing, cutting, gluing and painting they demanded that they be allowed to partake. I honestly didn’t have the heart to say no. 

Once they got situated and ready to create they asked, so what exactly are we making – what do we do? Hmmm… good question. My forte is teaching adults not children, so my go-to tactics were not going to work here. Instead, I gave them one simple prompt, find images that make you happy and together we created Happy Boards. 

As Maddy and I chatted while looking at her 2019 board, she shared with me that the board reflected several key happy moments from the last year.

My Medical Qigong Go-To’s

In two weeks, I’ll be doing my first talk of 2020 on Medical Qigong. I love being able to share this incredible self healing practice. The question I am most frequently asked after these talks is for follow-up resources. People attempt to google key terms from our discussion and end up overwhelmed by the large amounts of information with no real way to truly filter and find what they are seeking. Therefore, I wanted to take a moment and share my personal go-to’s when it comes to resources for Medical Qigong. I hope this list is beneficial and serves in your healing journey.

A Decade in Review

Marie Forleo has been a member of my Mental Advisory Board since day one. Not sure what that is, no worries, that blog post is coming later this month. But I digress, this month Marie proposed a Decade Review to close out 2019 properly and be fully prepared to welcome 2020. This review facilitated a process that challenged me to determine the most significant outcomes for myself personally over the last decade. More importantly, I had to also explore why these outcomes were so significant.

I was a little overwhelmed initially at completing this task, knowing that the last ten years included my wedding day, the birth of two children, the birth of my business and some pretty huge educational and professional milestones – how would I ever narrow it down to three. But like most exercises in the personal development realm, the outcomes are never what is expected. Major life events don’t automatically transfer to the most significant and impactful for our growth. So what does make the list? Let’s take a look at mine.
