We know being a mother is hard work. There are many blessings that come with parenting. Let’s embrace the freedom we have to be the role models we want to be for our kids!
As we get caught up in our fast-paced lives we often forget what is we want and how to live a happier less stressful life. One of the greatest projects I did for my kids was to create a Vision Board. Vision Boarding is a technique that is designed to center our energy on what we want to attract into our life. It gives us a sense of focus.
A vision board is a wonderful tool used to dream and to achieve our true potential. Think about the areas of your life you would like to improve. How would your kids benefit if you were feeling more vibrant and energized? Ask yourself these questions and write down your answers: 1. A genie has granted you one wish– what do you wish for? 2. What is something that YOU always wanted to try? 3. What goal have YOU been thinking about for a long time? 4. What has god been putting on your heart?
Let’s get started on creating YOUR vision!
Step 1— Compile pictures: Start compiling the pictures that you can find that are relevant to your goal and vision. Let yourself have fun looking through magazines and pulling out pictures or words that inspire you. Make a big pile in front of you.
Step 2— Sort: Go through the images and begin to lay your favorites on a poster board. This step is where your feelings come alive as you feel the vision taking form.
Step 3—Arrange and glue. Arrange your pictures in a way that gives you an emotional connection to your vision board. After you are done, glue all your pictures in place.
Some additional questions to keep in mind as you gather create and cut your images:
what would you do differently for your family when you realize your goal? where would you live or travel to? what would you wear? what would you like to do for work?
