Last week I started noticing the difference
strength balance on uneven surfaces
smiling I recall how far I have come
motion smooth and easy for me now
anything I want abundant energy walks dances and bicycles
around me as I move through the world
Red apples green avocadoes yellow orange squash
a rainbow of vegetables satisfy me as I dream
I remember last night's dream
vivid colors words swirling movements flowing like silk
in dreams and life I am master of my destiny
movement walking running even
head sitting on neck on shoulders strong
flexible bamboo green and healthy
better today than yesterday

Step 12: Post your final visualization or “poem” to the community board. Declare your vivid vision of the future.
