I know, it’s almost February, but I finally finished my vision board for 2013.
A vision board, for those of you unfamiliar with the concept, is a visual wish for what you want. It’s not goal-setting, but is about the outcomes you want.
Usually I make my yearly vision or dreamboards with a group, but this year I was working and couldn’t attend. Sigh. So I decided to collect images and do it myself.
It was interesting to see what images and words popped out as I sat down to create this board. It was originally intended to be about getting fit and losing weight…but turned out to be about aging joyfully and embracing my fifth decade. I have no idea how this will translate into goals and action steps… or even if it needs those things. Certainly getting fit and losing weight is a big part of living well, but there are many other factors that I’ll figure out along the way.
In the meantime, I’m happy with this vision for 2013 and am keeping it in my office for inspiration. The one I made last year was all about emerging (from bad times, debt and a lack of confidence); it certainly came true as 2012 was indeed a year of new beginnings and renewed confidence.
Have you ever made a vision board? Have any of your visions come true?
