Character Conversations #5: A World Of Saints & Sinners

This is the fifth installment of the Character Conversations series. If you haven’t read the other installments, that’s totally fine. You can read them here: convo #1, convo #2, convo #3, convo #4, although they will make sense if read out of order.

We live in a world with beautiful things and horrendous things. It’s a world of beauty and pain. It’s filled with saints and sinners. You can find that out by just stepping outside into the real world or by watching the news at any given moment.

[Tweet “Our world is a world filled with beauty and pain,  & saints and sinners.”]

Last month, Johan’s grandpa passed away. It was really sad. He went in for a surgery and made it through that just fine, but all of a sudden when he was in the healing process, his heart just stopped. It was so tough, especially since Johan was here and the rest of his family was in South Africa.

In that same week, our town was hit by a horrendous crime that made everyone very uncomfortable and took away that safe feeling that a small community has. A pregnant woman went missing. And then they found her body. Continue reading “Character Conversations #5: A World Of Saints & Sinners”

How To Create A Mini Desk Vision Board

I feel like art and the fit life have a lot connected to each other. Art, creativity, and inspiration inspire me to be a better person and when I work out and do the things that make me a better person, I feel more creative. I also feel like accomplishing more.

Today I want to show you how you can create your very own Desk Vision Board. It’s going to be something you can set on your desk at work to remind yourself of who you want to become and to keep your vision and goals fresh and on your mind throughout the day. This can be for fitness or projects you are working on. The one I made for example is to keep my story on the top of my mind. It will remind me to keep writing.

What you’ll need:
what you'll need devin joubert writing vision planning

  • Mini canvas + easel (I got mine at Hobby Lobby. The canvas and easel came together.)
  • Paint
  • Modge Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Cut out pieces of magazines, newspapers, print outs from Pinterest, and more.
  • Permanent Markers

Step #1: Think About Your Goals.

  • What are your goals?
  • What’s your vision?
  • Who do you want to be?
  • What do you want to accomplish? (Fitness and in life?)

Step #2: What Will Represent Your Accomplished Goals?

What will show your goals as though they’ve been accomplished? For example, I want to lose weight. For that, I’d find a picture of a healthy looking person. Or even some words that stand for the fit life I’d like to live. Or for my example, I want to finish writing this book, so this will serve as a reminder to get it done.

Step #3: Start Creating Your Masterpiece.

Put some Modge Podge onto your canvas and start decorating it with different things. When you are finished let it dry.

After letting it dry, you can come back and add more to it. Or you can add words and phrases with a permanent marker.

There is no limit on this. This is your masterpiece and it’s meant to inspire you to be the best you. Also to accomplish your dreams!

Step #4: Decorate Your Desk With It
