It’s been a while huh? Well, I’m still here. Work been keeping me busy, and when I’m not doing that it’s a headache to do anything blog related. Finding inspiration to keep going gets difficult at times, but I try my best to continue this journey. Giving up is not an option.
So, let’s get into today’s post *which should also serve as an inspiration*:
What’s your future lookin’ like?
The point of a vision board is to illustrate visually what you’d like your life to be like in the future. That may include: family, career, travel and other life goals. Pictures may be taken from the internet, magazines and other illustrations you may have at home.
Designing a Vision Board
If you’d like to make a physical vision board all you’d need is a bulletin/foam board, pictures, adhesive and other decorative items you may desire. Pinterest is definitely your place to check out for ideas and proper planning methods.
I always wanted to make a physical vision board, but like the procrastinator that I am it never came to fruition *yet*. In the mean time I decided to settle with a digital version in which I can place as my laptop background. *In hopes that I may see it everyday and decide to work on something towards achieving those goals*
So one day I was on Adobe illustrator clueless as to what to design, then I decided to finally start this long-awaited vision board.
Digital Vision Board
Just because it’s done digitally doesn’t mean it’s any less of a Vision Board.
You’ll first start off by:
- Deciding the time period for you board – is it short-term goals (3 months, the current year) or long-term? Maybe a mixture?
- Finding a theme – you may want to focus on a specific goal as opposed to all your life goals. In this instance you can create multiple, smaller boards and then join them all together.
- Gathering images/words/phrases from a source which represent your goals; you can also attach affirmations to your board for further inspiration and encouragement.
*P.S you can search for Vision Board Printables online or on pinterest for pretty cool designs you can use.*
Ideas of themes to include on your board include:
- Relationship goals (friendship, family etc)
- Finance/Business goals
- Health/Fitness goals
- Travel/Passion goals
Below is a picture of the vision board I created in March on my first try. I’m not totally happy with it, so I may revisit it and do some tweaking. As you can see I tried my best to give each theme its own space; the ones I focused on were education, summer fun (carnival) and travel. Good Vibes Only happens to be my motto for the future.
Creating a vision board is all fun and exciting, but IT DOESN’T STOP there. You have to put in the work! Everything you came up with as a goal needs an action plan. Place your board in an area where you’ll see it regularly and be tempted to act on it.
To make your summer even more exciting why not have a Vision Board Party???
Collect magazines, foam board, scissors and extra supplies at your local craft store, gather the girls, get some food, wine and enjoy a night of planning for your future.
This can be an inspiring and exciting way to learn more about everyone.
