I don’t know about anyone else, but 2018 was a GREAT year. Apart from taking some pretty amazing trips, I turned in the first part to my counseling license application, I completed cosmetology school & landed a job in one of Huntsville’s up and coming, black owned hair salons and I even organized my first community event in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club. As I continue my journey of self-growth, one of my 2019 goals is to continue to “put myself out there”. What better way to start the year off than by hosting a Vision Board Party?
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a collage of images, pictures and affirmations of ones dreams and desires; designed to serve as a source of inspiration and motivation, and to use the law of attraction to attain goals. (here’s my vision board from the party as an example)
Raise your hand if you believe in speaking things into existence.
Raise your hand if you’re a super visual person who has to physically see everything in order to get things done. For instance, if you’re always making a list or if you write everything down.
Okay, lastly, raise your hand if you just like playing with glue and scissors. LOL
If you answered yes to any of these, making a vision board is definitely something you should do.
Whats needed to make one?
At the vision board party I hosted this past Saturday evening, I provided my guests with tools such as poster boards, magazines, scissors, glue sticks/glue, markers, construction paper, crayons, stickie notes pads & a few other things to help decorate their vision boards. The only thing I think we were missing is more space. The ladies were seated 3 at a table & that still wasn’t enough room (as you can see by how resourceful my guests were).
How hard is it to make?
Not even! Creating a vision board is like an arts and crafts project for adults. My guests were able to sift through magazines while sipping on wine & eating snacks that were provided – like chips & cake. Honestly, there’s no right or wrong way to make a vision board & no two boards will ever look alike.
So, what do I do with my board when I’m done?
Well, that’s completely up to you. I know some people, probably, took their boards home & threw them away, while others kept their boards as reference/inspiration. Personally, I stuck mine up on the office wall so I can look at it often.
Wanna make your own vision board? Need some inspiration? Here are some picture of some of the ladies that attended the party and their vision boards!
Until next time babies!❤️
