I starting creating vision boards about 10 years ago when a group of friends and I would get together at the beginning of the year to make a collage to represent what we wanted to create for our year ahead. It was a social event and it was a good excuse to get together and share our dreams – whether it was a new job, new kitchen or new relationship or to let go of something we didn’t want in our lives any more.
I love this photo of Dame Helen Mirren by Robert Zukerman. I’ve seen this post floating around FB for a while. It appeared in my news feed again today, and once again, the words from Brene Brown quoted in the post deeply resonated. Helen Mirren is now a poster woman for aging gracefully and being sexy at 70 – “the new 40” apparently. Whatever Helen Mirren was thinking at the time this was taken or whatever it is supposed to portray, what I love is that it feels like she is saying “Here I am. This is me. Take it or leave it.”
