” Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe” ~Oprah Winfrey
I made my first personal vision board when I was around 15 and it wasn’t a vision board, it was more like a vision closet door. My vision board was just a bunch of cutouts from magazines that I liked. Pictures of celebrities, funny quotes, pretty patterns, clothes, makeup, etc. I was so incredibly proud of my door filled with dreams that I kept it up until college. Once college rolled around, I took a canvas and some Mod Podge and glued some print outs of my new dreams onto it and put it on my desk so I could see it every day. My dreams have since changed, as dreams do, and the board is gone.
By my 2nd or 3rd year of college, I got a cork board in my room, that became my new vision board…or more like a memory board. I put pictures of friends, happy quotes, posters and more onto the board, but now, as the trend implies, I have outgrown the board and have decided to give it a makeover. Which brings me to my current board.
This board is filled with places I want to go, things I want to do, motivational quotes, and things that make me happy. I figure that this board is the best way to give myself and any readers I have out there who care, some insight as to what I hope to get out of life and 2018. That being said, here is my Vision Board Tour of 2018:
Healthy Eat Inspiration:
When I started searching for images for my vision board, I know I wanted to put some healthy food pictures on it. I find that seeing really appetizing healthy choices makes me feel more encouraged and motivated to make good choices. Sure there are dozens of pictures of cool milkshakes and donuts on Instagram, but if I surround myself with better influences, I will make better choices more often!
More Crystals, More Happy:
I added crystals and pretty decor to my vision board as a way to remind myself to constantly cleanse my energy and elevate my space. I want to surround myself with good energy and objects that attract that energy. Putting up a little inspiration on my board will totally help me remember the kind of vibes I want my space and my life to have.
I love yoga and got my yoga teacher certification this year. Now that I have that taken care of, I want to focus on my asana practice. I want to get stronger and work out more often so I can achieve postures that I know my body could do if I were just more toned. So overall, this part of my board is not just about yoga, but getting in shape in general!
I have a long list of places I would love to travel within the next couple of years. I find that looking at pictures of those places and picturing myself there makes me feel super motivated and excited to work and get myself there. It also motivates me to put away money so I can save up to see all of the places that excite my mind.
Quotes for a happy life:
Lastly, I love to put positive quotes and sentiments on my board as constant reminders as to why I do the things I do. Quotes also help bringing me back in times of crisis and struggle. A good quote could change my perspective, motivate me, or boost my energy. I also think that putting up quotes is a good way to show what you want to embody during any given year!
I’m excited to blog about all of the things this vision board motivates me to do! What kind of things would you want to put on your vision board?
