Well, I did it. Last month I created a vision board in my bedroom, filling it with all the things I want for my cartoon business Ladytooner: the HP Laptop, the creative software, the messenger bag and planner to run my business from, pictures of my cartoon characters, rows of dollar signs ('cause I want to make money!) and a quote from the artist SARK.
So why am I, a practicing Christian, doing something as "New Age" as a vision board? There's a Bible verse, Habakkuk 2:2, which says (and I'm paraphrasing here), "Write the vision and make it plain upon tablets, so that he may run that reads it." Well, instead of writing the vision, I used pictures--and my heart runs laps whenever I see the board!
Since that time last month, things have started happening. I got the commercial art jobs from Diana and Bertha, with whom I'm still working. I discovered Film Annex, where my animations can be seen. I have a new HP laptop now (actually it's used but it's new to me) and new software; it's slow going but I'm getting the hang of using it. And I am seeing dollar signs more often in the form of FA revenues and pay for art jobs.
I am definitely not a "New Ager"; I just put up the vision board to remind me to "go for it", whatever "its" I'm going for. So I can testify that the board gives me focus, and obviously God blesses the focused!
