Afrobella recently re-posted on her Facebook page an article by @NecoleBitchie about creating a vision book which got me to thinking again about the Vision Board I created March of this year. For those that are saying what the heck is a “vision book/board”, it is pretty much a collage of pictures representing your goals, things you want to achieve or personal items you may want.
I must admit I thought my friend was crazy when she said lets take a day and make a vision board. We both had some things going on in our lives and I can’t even remember before that the last time I pulled out a glue stick and made a collage. Reluctantly, I went to her house with my magazines and we spent a few hours on the floor bonding and making our vision boards.
I can not thank her enough for “forcing” me to do that. The vision board itself was a creative way to get everything that was going on in my head down on paper BUT the fun we had together helping each other was priceless. Sitting together, clowning around and helping each other find pictures was a lot of fun. I definitely encourage creating your vision board/book with 1 or 2 of your closest friends.
I think the choice is yours as to whether or not you want to do a vision board or book. For me, I prefer the Board. My board has more of my long term goals (within the next few years). It included things from the length I want my fro to be to the book I want to write – and of course, inspirational words to get me through. I hung the Board on a blank wall in my closet so I can see it every morning. Next to my vision board is a dry erase board where I list some of my more immediate goals. When I complete one I don’t erase it I just put a line through it.
As I looked at my vision and dry erase board today I realize I need to get back to a few things 🙂 Instead of making that New Year’s resolution that you probably will forget about by the time we are into the 3rd week of 2012 why not make a vision board or book.
What do you think New Year’s Resolution or Vision Board/Book?
