The Vision According to Toast


"If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes."
- Andrew Carnegie


After several years of cutting pictures out of magazines, collecting images, reading self-help books, perusing catalogues and creating vision boards, I thought I had enough shots to make a proper This-is-What-I-Want board. Then the BBC* came over, bringing with them a NEW pile of magazines and catalogues and in the space of one afternoon I had it. My vision. And it all (except the word *giggle*) came from the same place: Toast.

Boy do they get it, those Toast photographers and stylists. They tapped right into my psyche (and lots of other psyches at the same table!) They know what I want. I just want to be happy.

So what do I want to create in my life? Freedom, Creativity, Abundance, Serenity, and Health, with a little Laughter thrown in. Doesn't that sound good?

Sigh.

Yes.

It sounds absolutely delicious! How wonderful to find somewhere that feels just like home. And that picture in the lower right - when I first saw it I wondered if it was a photo of you that you had included!

May all you dream of come your way.

You have inspired me to start my own blog about living a true, authentic, passionate, happy life. I've been working on a vision board for a couple years now, and today I just completed it. Then, I went online and saw your last two posts. Serendipity... I look forward to following your blog. You are an exceptional writier. :)

Min said...

Hi Megg! I love your vision board ... it makes me want to breathe and relax :)
Also... I've done it!!!!! ... yep, a blog of my own. It's not too thrilling at the moment, but I'm so excited about the possibilities.You're always welcome to come for a visit :)
Night!

I thought of this post this morning when I open my new Olive Magazine, and out dropped a mini Toast catalogue. Despite the fact I am trying to hold on to the last grasps of Summer (which I don't believe should officially end until October at least) the images did conjure up thoughts of 'toast'y autumn moments and winter drawing in. 'sigh!' Sound so lovely but I don't want to give up my summer yet.
