Welcome to Week 3, Day 17 of the 365-Day Creativity Challenge! This week that leads up to the Thanksgiving holiday we are practicing creative exercises centered around giving thanks. It’s a new moon tomorrow (Nov 18th) and the perfect time to acknowledge all the good in our lives, to be thankful, and to set new goals. For Days 17 and 18, we are going to create a new moon vision board. In case you are wondering what a vision board is, think of it as a visualization exercise + pictorial representation of your goals. The goals could be short- or long-term and could involve any area of your life. Family and relationships, work, other projects- whatever you want to focus on. To periodically take the time to go inward (carried over from yesterday’s prompt), to acknowledge and be thankful for all the people, situations, and things life brings to us, and to get clear on our goals helps us take concrete action towards them.

For the Day 17 Prompt, we are going to start collecting pictures from old magazines, catalogs, etc, for the vision board that we are going to create tomorrow (Day 18). What do you want to work on? What would you like more of in your life? Be as specific as you can get. As an example, the vision board that I created for 2017, I wanted to focus on my creativity (definitely doing that!) and on setting up a volunteering practice (I have been volunteering regularly since spring). Today, take time to think about what you’d like to do and how to best capture it using pictures and words. Tomorrow, we will bring it all together. To share how you are interpreting these creative prompts or following the challenge, please use the hashtag #ctea365 on social media and /or leave me a comment below. Have a wonderful rest of the day! – Priya
