So, I did a thing. After weeks of planning, I created my very own vision board. I know it’s nothing new. People have been creating vision boards for years now. I’m extremely late to the party, but I can definitely see this as an annual tradition of mine moving forward. There was just something so therapeutic about writing out my goals and then covering a board with visual representations of them. I’m telling y’all, seeing the finished product made me feel like I could accomplish everything in front of me.
It’s a new year, so it’s time to set new goals and face new challenges. What better way to do that than to create your very own vision board?
What You Need:
1 poster board, canvas board, or cork board
1 pair of scissors
Old magazines, newspaper, or internet (for those of you that can’t stay away from Pinterest)
Glue, tape, or pins (thumbtacks)
List of goals (long or short-term)
Step 1: Reflect
Reflect on all of the things you have accomplished so far. While you’re at it, reflect on the challenges you’ve faced as well. Did you accomplish everything you’ve set out to accomplish so far? Is there still room for improvement?
Step 2: Set Goals
Based on your reflections, make a list of goals for yourself (or your family). Whether long or short-term, anything you want to accomplish should be on this list.
Step 3: Representation
Once you’re done reflecting and setting your goals, it’s time to find picture representations. Old magazines, newspapers, and Pinterest are the best places to look.
Step 4: Trust The Process
Now that you have your images, it’s time to place them on the board .You can use any size board you’d like depending on where you plan on placing the finished product. Remember that this is your board, your vision, and your goals. It’s supposed to look the way that you want it to look. I believe wholeheartedly that we get what we put out into the atmosphere, and creating your own vision board is the perfect way to do that.
I used to make these when I was a little younger (and didn’t have small children incessantly needing me), but I love having a constant visual reminder of the goals I’m working toward. Yours looks great!
That was my first one and there was a little struggle trying it with a threenager around lol
I keep saying I’m going to do one as well…. one day I actually will. I do agree however that writing and having a visual of your goals, as opposed to just “knowing” them, does a little something different for you. Great idea.
I love your vision board! I make one every year and it helps me to stay on track. This year I made a family one and a personal one. Thanks for sharing!
I’ve heard a lot about vision boards, but I have never actually seen what they looked like or read up about them. It sounds like a lot of fun and a good way to feature some of your goals!
It was definitely fun to make.
I use to LoVe making vision boards back in school! I should start making them again – so fun
You should! I had a blast making mine.
Love this and love the idea of making it an annual tradition! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much for reading
