The house from my Vision Board
I first read and watched The Secret in April 2008. At the time, I was new to Charlotte, NC, living in an apartment, and not yet working. I had a lot of free time (other than job hunting), so I decided to make a vision board. On the board I included things such as a car, a check from the universe, happiness, etc. But one of the things I was most focused on was being able to buy a home in the Charlotte region. We didn’t know which neighborhoods were the “good” ones yet, so I just randomly searched houses in our price range, and printed out the ad to a home that was beautiful. From the pictures and the description, it would be our dream house. Sounded like a good addition to the Vision board.
Fast forward to November 2008, when my husband and I closed on a home here, and were unpacking. I found the vision board, which I had not viewed in several months. I was in absolute shock when I looked at the house on the board. It was not the exact house, but the exact same model, floor plan, etc. The house in the picture is located around the corner from our new house! Without knowing anything about safe neighborhoods, crime, schools, etc, I chose a house out of 1,000s in the area for my vision board… and then bought the same model in the same neighborhood 7 months later.
I am definitely a believer! I’ll be making an updated vision board very soon.
