What’s your vision?

IMG_20140804_233526

The central piece of my board. A reminder that I preside over my own life.

Vision boards are awesome.

And tons of folks make them. Very often they are filled with images of places you want to visit, things you’d like to have, cars, homes, romance, and so on.

I’ve been making vision boards for years and I love them. They are an incredible visual reminder of what you are working towards in your life. A place to focus your minds eye and your day to day attention.
 

This year I did something a little different.

Instead of filling my board with tangible goods, beach vacations, and things like that I went a different route and made a vision board for my word of the year. Sovereign.

What does sovereign look like to me? It’s a combination of confidence, capability, and connection. Stepping fully into my power and knowing I can fully be myself.

 

Several areas of my life are represented on my board and I left space so that I could add more later.

 
Have you ever made a vision board?

How would it look if you made one for a feeling or quality you desire rather than tangible things?

What if you made two? or included both tangibles and intangibles?

I encourage you to explore the process and to stretch your imagination about what you want to add to it. Have fun!

    Great idea! I didn’t write about today’s topic because I don’t really like vision boards and don’t think they work, but I love the idea of creating a feeling board instead. This I can relate to! Andrea

      Thanks Andrea! I think this is the step that makes so many boards fail. You have to know WHY you want the things you think you want first. So I love feelings boards for this.

    I think I will try an “intangible” vision board. Thanks for the idea!

      Awesome! I would love to hear how it turns out 🙂

    I will definitely have to consider this type of vision board, I think for some people it might not seem as overwhelming.

      That might be true, Renee. If you do make one let me know how it goes 🙂

    Tina, your board looks awesome! I’m with Andrea up there and not a fan of vision boards, but when you do them like you did yours, I think it’s a great reminder of where you want to be, as you said.
