Full Moon Dreamboard: More Than One Thing

From time to time I make dreamboards (collages of inspiring images) as a way to recognize my soul’s desires. Plus, it’s just plain fun to cut up magazines and assemble a collage like we used to do in school.

That urge crept up in my yesterday, so I once again scoured a pile of magazines for the images that resonated within me.

From the time I was in high school, I have questioned my purpose in this life. What is the thing (often translated as “job”) that I am meant to do? Jamie recently challenged me by asking, “What if your thing isn’t a thing? What if it’s things plural?”

So I’ve been sitting with that thought for a while now and it feels comfortable. It means I don’t have to force myself into one area of expertise. I can love the web and writing and nature photography and anything else I choose.

Now rather than stressing out about what I should be focusing on, I can focus on enriching my life in a multitude of ways. No doing one thing at the expense of another.

My new dreamboard is now sitting on my desk awakening my creativity with its vibrant colors and a message to “Do more than one thing and do them well.”

    What great words of wisdom about doing more than one thing. Most of the time I really don’t think we’re hardwired to do just one thing for our entire lives. I love this invitation you’ve given yourself to devote your efforts to multiple endeavors.
