.Do you remember this one? I painted this little elf a couple years ago. I entered it into a face painting contest put on by Illusion Magazine and guess what?! I won first place! Later I decided I would call it my Elfie Selfie.
Speaking of Elfie Selfies, I have been seeing all sorts of pictures on Instagram of people sporting their sparkly Elfie Selfie shirts from H & M. When I see shirts like these I think to myself, "Oh man, what a great idea! Why did I not think of that? That person is making a ton of money!"
Which brings me to the point of this Christmas Eve blog post. I think of awesome things all the time! In fact, my brain is brimming over with ideas just like these Elfie Selfie shirts! Some of my ideas I take action on and some stay in my "parking lot", which is a notebook filled with these ideas.
For 2016, I really want to take more action toward making my ideas a reality. So, the first thing I am going to commit to is to finish creating the vision board that I started this morning. I am creating this board because, I want a place whereby I can see all my ideas and dreams and goals for 2016 in one spot. I am going to place this vision board somewhere visible so I can look at it all the time and remind myself of where I am going and what I want to see happen in my life.
Having this vision board up where I can see it, helps me on the days my spirit feels low. Sometimes, I am full of hope and inspiration. Sometimes I am not. In face, sometimes I feel hardly any hope at all. (Thank God for friends) No matter what state my spirit is in, I want to head in a faith-filled, creativity-filled, love-filled and abundance-filled direction.
So, to whoever came up with that Elfie Selfie shirt, I say, "good for you!" You inspire me to keep bringing the beautiful visions I have in my head and heart out into the world.
Therefore, in addition to finishing my vision board, I would like to start taking action on an idea that I have had in my head for a long time now....to write my autobiography and have it published! I also desire to have my business, Mandy's Art and Soul, at the point where I am busy with face painting, body painting and belly painting all year long!!!!
Merry Christmas Eve Y'all and may this new year be a year filled with many wonderful ideas that do not just stay in our heads but also get out into the world too!!
Together, let's paint the world!
