Have you ever created a vision board? I used to make them all the time, and I decided it was time to bring them back! The premise of a vision board is to basically put your goals, dreams or just things that bring you joy somewhere where you can see them. (I used to keep them in my closet to see each day when I didn’t have a place to showcase them) This constantly reminds you of those goals.. in turn helping to make those goals and dreams a reality.
One of my favorite books is The Secret. (I actually think I may read it again this year, since it has been ages) This is one of the suggested practices in that book. The basic and super simple breakdown of the book is that if you think positive, positive things will happen to you. The book is so much more than that.. but I am not writing a whole post on the book. Anyway, I truly do believe in that way of thinking. Also, studies have found that visualization really works!
I wanted to start the new year by making over my desk area and I am really happy with the way everything turned out… especially my vision board. I started with two small rectangular cork boards I ordered off of Amazon. I decided to jazz them up with some gold polka dots… since who doesn’t love gold polka dots? It took me literally 3 minutes to do, and now I want to put gold dots on my whole world since they make me so happy. I found the cutest push pins on clearance at Target. Boom. Done.
You can decorate your vision board however you like. The goal is you want to look at things that motivate you, make you happy or just represent a way you want to feel. I started mine by cutting out phrases from magazines, that remind me of my ultimate goals for the year. I included some pictures and a few other things that don’t have a deep meaning or anything… I just liked it for whatever reason.
In the past, I just made a collage on a poster board and called it a day. That works fine too, as long as you put it somewhere where you can see it often.
I love how my whole desk area turned out, I just need some cute desk accessories. I got the pictures and the little spiky things on the wall from Target. Have you ever created a vision board? Did I at least pique your interest?
