wheel of life/2010 vision board


for those of you that have been reading my blog for a while you probably recall my 2009 vision board, if you are new or need a refresher, click here.

for the last few weeks i've been playing around with making a visual wheel of life. while it isn't exactly in a "wheel" shape, you get the idea. if you are not sure what the "wheel of life" exercise is, you can check out a few variations & explanations here, here & here.

i decided to make an artist's date out of my visual wheel of life. i had magazines, construction paper, scissors, a glue stick, water with a slice of organic lemon (i am on a lemon kick recently), and the drive to make something beautiful and creative.

now for a little closer look into each of the categories...
finances
relationships
health
home environment
self-care
spirituality
creativity
career
(sorry for all of the glare from the glossies)

have you tried the wheel of life exercise or a vision board? why not combine both into one.

What a fabulous idea. Thinking of re-doing the wheel of life exercise as it is ages since I have done it and I my life is feeling lopsided right now. Thanks for the reminder and the inspiration.

This is fantastic - I love how you merged the wheel of life with the vision board :) Did you hang up your vision wheel with your 2009 vision board?

Mindy said...

Love this idea Melita! Collaging is the BEST! Your vision board is gorgeous :-)

I did my 2010 vision board over a painting this year. I haven't posted it on the blog yet... I feel like it is still a work on progress, but hopefully I will put it up there soon.

Such a great idea and great work. I love how colorful it is and how representative it is of you.

I love using glue sticks, don't you? I think we had the same creative vibe this weekend, because I also broke out my glue stick! :)

I love my vision board. So many things have come true in amazing ways. Thank you for sharing!

Is your vision board intentionally in an "H" shape or was that simply by accident? Does "H" stand for "Happy"? ;)

What a fab idea! The sheer act of creating your vision board would help define it more for you too. Looks like a lot of fun.
