Dreaming with a Purpose: Vision Boards

This past Wednesday, three of my close friends and I had a vision board party. After a long and eventful 2020, we thought this was a great way to start off the new year. So, after snagging some old magazines from the Turknett office (thanks Barbara and Kathy), I began my visualization journey.

“Visualization and belief in a pattern of reality activates the creative power of realization,” said A.L. Linall, JR.

The key to vision boards is to focus on how you feel. As I leafed through many magazines, I started thinking about three key things:

  1. How do I want to feel?
  2. What do I value?
  3. What are my goals and things I want to achieve?

I started to gain some clarity and seek images or words that mirrored my thoughts. A few hours later, this was what we all came up with.

Each of our boards were different in the way we displayed our feelings, values, and goals. However, once we shared and talked about our boards, we noticed some similarities. From there, we started discussing accountability and how some of the things one person wanted to achieve a different person was already doing. This was an amazing conversation because we each gained clarity, realized the areas we can support each other in, and the opportunities for growth.

I truly believe what we choose to focus on can come to life. My vision board helped eliminate doubts, embrace positive thoughts, and work on obtaining my goals. To see it, is to believe it.
