I once made a vision board and hid it in the closet. It's not only because I maybe didn't believe in the power of it but also because I didn't believe in myself. I didn't believe in my worth to accomplish what was on that board. And surprisingly, I was embarrassed to post it up on the wall. Little ol' me thinking I was going to eventually run a marathon and crush my goals and feel better about myself. It was a difficult time, I was running and running in circles and chasing my own tail.
It has been a few years since that. I have trekked a long way and I am grateful that my outlook on life is a lot better today. I give myself a lot more credit and I finally understood that many things in life are possible if only:
1. We give ourselves credit
2. We believe in ourselves & believe we are worthy of seeking out our own happiness!
3. We work diligently towards our goals
I do sometimes wish I would have understood this years ago, I know I would be in a better place now. But there is no time to waste. We start right where we are with what we have available to us.
This past weekend I set out to do what I hadn't believed would work once. I took out the supplies I needed and sat down in bed to complete a vision board. My son saw me doing one and decided he wanted to do one as well. As I saw my completed work I realized it still takes a lot of faith to believe that anything there might come true. But I have learned that faith builds upon faith just like a completed goal builds upon another. If we complete only one goal, however small it is, it catapults us into completing bigger goals. We must believe in ourselves because we are the only ones that can execute change in our lives. People will come at the right time to give us a little nudge so that we might keep moving forward; doors might open or close; but ultimately it is up to us to put every step forward, knowing we are worthy of all the great things to come.
Here is a picture of my vision board:
I found inspiration in different pictures. If something caught my attention it was added to my vision board.
This is my son's vision board:
He wants to travel the world and have a flexible schedule.
And last but not least is my mini vision board. This one was made a little different. On my vision board I looked through pictures and added the ones that caught my attention. On my mini board, I selectively looked for things that I want to manifest in my life. For example; I love reading and would love to have a home library so I searched for something that would represent this.
You can say one is for inspiration on working towards my goals and one is what my completed goals will look like.
