I am such a nerd; when school supplies hit the store shelves, I’m tempted to buy new pens and planners and folders, even when I have no use for them! I love the excitement and preparation that goes into a new school year, even though I haven’t been a student since I graduated college in 1999.
I don’t have any kids, nor do I have any school-aged children in my immediate circle of friends, so I don’t have any real connection to the school calendar, but every fall, I ask myself; “What do I need to learn? What would be fun to learn?”
This year, I finally made a dream/vision board, and I decided to make it according to the feng shui bagua grid. The bottom-left segment is for Skills and Knowledge. I’ve had fun finding images to represent the skills and knowledge I want to manifest. I also acted on a coupon that came my way for a local yoga studio, to go deeper with my yoga practice.
