A few years ago, I decided to set several goals that I would like to accomplish before I hit the magical age of 40. I think, by the time 40 rolls around, I might know what I want to do with my life. (Though, that’s not looking good, so far.)
Anyway, due to a few minor setbacks, I have had to push back a few of those goals for a year, which is okay, because it gives me a perfect tag line for my vision board. 2020 Vision!
So here’s my confession. I haven’t exactly created the board yet. I know what I want it to look like. I know what I want it to say. I’ve even bought the poster board. But it is as blank today as it was when I bought it six months ago.
I’ve seen folks who swear by their vision boards. I know the power of seeing and saying. I know that I cannot achieve what I don’t believe, and I can’t believe what I do not physically sense. (The Bible tells me so.)
And yet today, I still stare at a blank page.
Neither the metaphor, nor the irony is lost on me. My future is a blank canvas. I’m too busy living my present to plan the future. Except, the busy-ness of my today is what is building my tomorrow.
I can’t actually see what the future holds, but perhaps that’s because my future is so bright I have to wear shades! I know that none of my daily activities are in vain. Everything is working together for my good, even things I can’t see. So my 2020 vision isn’t as focused or as accurate as I would like it to be, But I’ve got it in my sights. Full speed ahead!
