Last year around this same time I was all giddy about creating a vision board. I was off to a pretty good start too. I had encouraged my bestie, Tasha, to do it too, I had purchased a board and I even began to cut out pictures. But being the procrastinator that I am I started to put it off and I continued to put it off until….well, this year. Pit-tee-full! I know.
Well about a month ago, Tasha and I were on the phone and the whole Vision Board discussion came up again. And ever since that conversation, I swear that God has been sending me signs left and right telling me do it for real this time. So I’m ALL in, like seriously! But there is still a bit of a dilemma…
What do I put on my vision board?!?!
I don’t even know what it is I want to do. Sad thing is, I’ve always kind of been that way too. I like to consider myself as a “fly by the seat of my pants, go with the flow, do stuff on whim” kinda girl. And over the years (ok, my whole life) that’s has worked just fine for me. However, I’m starting to think that whole season is over…On top of that, I’ve been a stay-at-home mom going on six years now and I’m currently at a bit of a cross-roads. I’ve always said that once my youngest started school full-time, I would head back to work, well next year that will be the case.
So what does all of that have to do with my Vision Board, right?
Everything! Vision Boards are great tools, not only for those who already have a “vision” but also for those who are somewhat lost, like myself. Last year when I began this process, I was pressed to have a perfect vision board and I think that’s what deterred me. I spent my time studying the pictures in the magazines trying to make them fit (into what, I still don’t know). But this time around I plan on using the whole “fly by the seat of my pants, go with the flow, do stuff on whim” approach to my advantage. Whatever excites me, woos me, stumps me or challenges my thoughts will be cut out without question. And in the end my completed vision board will be story of my most inner desires…yep, I went deep on y’all. LOL
I’ve already begun working on my Vision Board, for real this time. Like I said I already have my board (that I purchased last year…smh) and I’ve already come across a few things that have stood out as must-haves for my board. And even better, I have given myself a deadline! My goal is to have my Vision Board completed by December 20, no excuses.
So, will you be creating a vision board this year? Have you ever done a vision board before and seen results? What goals do you want to accomplish before the year ends?
