Hey Everyone! Dream or Vision Board, whichever you prefer, is the topic we are talking about today!
I used to spend hours making Dream Walls, that's right, a WALL! I would create a collage on one or two of my bedroom walls. Most of it was about fashion and horse, but as I grew up it turned into a place of motivation and inspiration. As I got older, and started co-habitating with my boyfriend now husband, I stopped making them.
I still had dreams and goal I thought about, but I didn't have it under my nose multiple times of day. The book She Means Business by Carrie Green, made me realize that I haven't dreamt nor inspired myself in a really long time. I know it sounds really weird, but moving to a new state and starting a job, your mind focuses on the now rather than the future until you start getting used to your new life.
I decided I was going to make a dream board for myself. I went on Amazon Prime and purchased a cork board, pins, and stock paper. From there I ran to Target to grab a few magazines and fun markers. Once I had all my supplies, I chose a night where I would be able to focus on me (AKA my hubs was traveling) and I didn't come home late from the gym, which is right after work.
I had a show in the background, and start cutting items out of the mags, I went through all of them and made sure I covered the most random pieces of inspiration: beach scene, drawings, fashion trends, model poses that were freeing, pics of places I have dreamt about (Paris), and so on. I also started writing out my favorite quotes, as many I could think of but often forget. After two hours, I had piles of materials to put on my board, but before I started pinning I would look at all my items and chose the ones that matter now. You start thinking about where you want to be the next year, what you want to do, what you want to accomplish, how you want to live your life, etc.
Once all the pinning is done, you look at your masterpiece, your dreams, and realize the constant reminder will continue to motivate and inspire you to be your very best. And if there are days you are not, you can reflect on how to get back on track.
This is a very therapeutic process I plan to do twice a year. I am a firm believer that there are shifts in our lives that will cause you to change your goals, which ultimately change your future. Twice a year is not a requirement, some do it annually and some every other year.
Enjoy the time you spend on you!
