I’ve had quite the imagination ever since I was young. I used to go through catalogs that advertised houses and home goods, clipping out items for “my dream home,” flipping through magazines for photos that caught my eye and words that described the kind of person I wanted to be. There was even a point when every inch of my room during high school was covered in magazine ad pages.
I guess it comes as no surprise that my instagram looks like a real life pinterest board, and that I’m into making vision boards to keep me focused.
Whether or not you believe in visualization, have read The Secret (the book on the law of attraction), or believe in dream boards, I’ve come to use it as a tool to remind me of what I’m working towards.
Here’s the vision board I made in freshman/sophomore year of college:
It took me weeks to go through magazines and find words that I found compelling.
The main difference this time is that instead a lot of images, I’m using words and sayings as I’m finding that the images are so specific, whereas the words can change meaning as I grow and change, therefore changing context and perspective.
Here’s the final product, at least for now.
You can see that I haven’t glued it down so firmly, and that’s so that if I need to change or swap out anything, I can.
Hoping to achieve everything that’s on this board in a year or two.
What’s on your vision board?
