I’m back! It’s been awhile and I miss blogging! I also miss posting for Inspiration Monday, but there’s nothing wrong with inspiration on a Tuesday.
With such big dreams and present opportunities, I am very excited about what’s happening in my life. My mind is always racing with new ideas and ways of making the most of this opportunity and that opportunity. Everything can really seem all over the place, making it easy for things to slip through the cracks. Not long ago, my mom went on a haul for vision board supplies and it was long pass the time it get put to use.
Why A Vision Board?
There were quite a few ways I could have gone about zoning in on my life and somewhat “organizing” these thoughts, but I chose a vision board over redoing an agenda or free writing in a journal. Here’s why:
- Creative Freedom – I used no sort of template when I started my vision board. I simply placed my magazine cut-outs around before pasting them and wrote with markers in different directions until my board was filled. If never any other time, this is the perfect time to let my creativity run free. There is no wrong way of doing my vision board.
- I Have Already Made My Dreams Come True – By writing my goals, dreams, thoughts, wants,etc on my vision board, I have taken them from my head and brought them into reality. Whatever I want is already realized on my board, now, time just has to catch up to it all. What makes this even more amazing is because I’m the one who wrote it down, I’m the one who made it come true. Essentially, my board is just a reminder that this happening and I need to keep up by doing the work.
- Trash It, Change It, Make a New One – If my first vision board just didn’t cut it, I can make a new one! Ideally, better, more fitting to what I want. There are NO rules and NO limits to how many I can have.
- Aesthetically Seamless – Though I didn’t go this route, it was definitely an option and will be of use in the future. I can choose to display my board as not only inspiration but decoration. Positive and pretty!!
How I Did It
Grabbed my supplies and went at it. Over a series of days, myself and others skimmed through magazines and cut out whatever caught our eyes. Use whatever else to decorate your board (poster, foam, etc). I opted for my Copics.
Thank you for reading! I hope this inspires someone else to make their dreams come true.
What is your favorite thing about vision boarding?
