Take your ‘VISION’ and run with it!


Take yourVISION and run with it!

The kind of vision I am referring to, are not to the gifted amongst us, who are able to perceive in lucid dreams. But more to our mental pictures, that have a practical application, needing our valuable, physical input.  Every so often, our ‘thoughts ‘too habitually go awry, because we are not in a position of focused thinking. Our lists, the ones in our heads and depending on our aims, are just endless ideas, with no real direction or commitment – A recipe for apathy and stagnancy. So, in order to embark on YOUR journey of actualizing your own, consider what a vision truly is…  

 ‘A vision is a collection of plans, formed in our imagination, using wisdom for future endeavors’.

Habakkuk 2:2-3


 ‘And the Lord answered and said…. Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak; and will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because, it will surely come, it will not tarry.’


You may be thinking…” well how do I get my ideas to become reality “?  “I could use a bit of help here”…

I suggest you ponder on these pearls of wisdom. The book of Habakkuk has just the answer! This is for much needed clarity, to the muddle of intentions and aspirations in our heads.  And an absolute gem, if ever there was one!


Imagine, how easy it could be, just by writing down a plan, which will then activate a proposed action! This maybe something you have considered, perhaps already doing, or is already seeing your ideas come to fruition – That’s great!!

However, to the ‘No Ordinary Women’, who got stuck on the fly paper, from all those ideas, buzzing around. {Lol}  Be encouraged, no one told you, what you’re about to commit to paper, is going to be easy either. Nonetheless, this is where the fun begins!

If you’re not familiar with a ‘Vision Board’ I suggest you read up on how this effective, yet simple resource can drive home, your planned goals to completion. It teaches us to Look, Focus and calls YOU to practical Action. Moreover, you can learn from others who have exceeded and propelled their desires, into action too. My interest in science and story – telling and one of our greatest assets, is to seek out, Positive Quotes and Affirmations, from people you respect and admire.  So here are two of my favourite ones;

Mae C. Jemison {First African American Woman to go into space, on September 12th 1992} ‘Never limit yourself, because of others limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination’    

{Author, Toni Morrison, Songs of Solomon, Sula, Beloved}  ‘If there’s a book you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it’
