Vision boards are physical or virtual collages that reflect future goals/aspirations through a curation of intentionally chosen images and quotes.
Vision boards are a great way to visualize your long term or short term goals, as well as things you desire within your life. Unlike a New Year’s resolution that focuses on a list, vision boards allow you to lean more on the vision.
I made my first e-vision board in April of this year and a lot has happened since then. To create my e-vision board, I utilized Pinterest to find images that aligned with my desires and overall aesthetic. A positive/healthy relationship, more travel opportunities, business goals, a stronger spiritual relationship, a black belt, and other lifestyle based images were a few of my areas of focus. I then utilized Canva to bring my vision board/laptop background to life. I intentionally made my vision board my computer background because I am constantly using my laptop. When I open my laptop, my vision board is the first thing I see. A background for your phone is also another great place to house your vision board!
Here's an example of the entire process:

Prior to identifying the power of vision boards, I thought phrases like “manifest your reality ” and “I don't chase, I attract” were a crock... If i'm being honest. However, I’m now a believer and I’m ready to share my praises!
Since the creation of my vision board, I earned my black belt in early June! In July, I met the author of the book “Get Good with Money” (located in the top left corner) and I am now her mentee! I made a Tik Tok giving an honest review about her book and the video has well over 150,000 views (Which still blows my mind.) She wanted to meet me, which was wild, and in the midst of the conversation I asked her to serve as a mentor (from what I can remember.) Then in August, I received a partnerships with The Getaway Cabin and I was able to experience the solo cabin life *EXPENSE FREE.*
This is your sign to start a vision board! Answering the question “what do you want to be when you grow up” is anxiety inducing (for some), simply because we change constantly. I don’t know what I want to do, but I know what I don’t want to do. Overall, I aspire to cultivate a life I enjoy living! So instead of creating a life solely based on what you aspire to career wise, think about the life you want to live overall and what that looks like.
