I still want pictures for my reading/studying, drawing, & Al-Anoning goals. I’ve found some other fantastic things so far though. I’m excited. 3 weeks ago
but I want to do it anyway. My last vision board is already almost 1.5 years old & much has changed since then. Maybe I will make working on my vision board a reward for when I study? 3 weeks ago
I added more pictures and some sayings to my board. I need 2 or 3 more items to call it complete. Progress, and it has me thinking about what I want to do over the next few years.
This is a fun goal, and a positive goal. When I finish this board, I want to make one for work. 4 weeks ago
I finally got to work on this and I have half the board completed. I need to find pictures of the house I want to buy to add to the board. I also realized that the images I have now only contain one person. I need some “social” images. It is interesting how the pictures I have selected have something to tell me. 4 weeks ago
visions out of my mind and put them on a vision board so I can move into actually doing some of them.
My mind is too crowded with all I want to do to get organized enough to do anything. 1 month ago
This is an easy goal, so I am surprised I have taken so long to make progress. Today I cut out some images of things I want in my life and taped them to my vision board. There is a lot of space left for other things I want in my life – which is fine. I am happy that I have started and have some images on my board. :) 1 month ago
How I did it: I've had this as part of my list for at least a year. I always loved the idea of using pictures and phrases to motivate you into achieving your dreams. But even as I was gluing on the pictures I was becoming more positive.
Read how I did it… 1 month ago
I wanted mine to concentrate a lot on what I am and how I hope I am perceived. This is why I have the word YOU
standing out the biggest and the word LOVE
I never really wear dresses even though I own some beautiful ones. I lack confidence to wear them and often don't think I'm slim enough to pull them off so I've added images to the bottom left corner of pretty dresses that I should be wearing. My wardrobe could certainly do with arestyle.
The image of the family is what I crave most in life. I would love to have children someday and be part of a loving relationship.
I need to travel more hence the globe picture & I have an image of the Sydney Opera house and Harbour Bridge as Australia is one place I would love to go to one day.
The images of theatre musical shows are central because this is an area of my life I enjoy the most. I love attending shows and live events and I need to these to continue. They are a lot of what I am about now!!!
I have the Breast Cancer Ribbon saying Courage, Love & Hope. This reflects my own personnel battle at the moment and the idea of taking things slow and being brave. I will get there! It's also close to the word family. The most amazing people I know. They give me strength.
The Michael J Fox Quote ~ "Don't spend a lot of time imaging the worse-case scenario. It rarely goes down as you imagine it will and if by some fluke it does, you will have lived it twice."
Writing used to be a great way for me to escape but something I have done less of in reason years. I need to "GET CREATIVE" so the image of Mickey Mouse writing is there to encourage me to write more but to also remember why I enjoyed it so much when I was growing up.
The Toni Morrison Quote ~ "If there is a book you really want to write but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."
The wedding bouquet is an image that one day I hope is in my future as is the couple smiling and looking very much in love.
I also have the image of a family tree as ancestry is something I enjoy researching and must do more often.
I feel that 2013 is going to be a year I change a lot and grow into a more confident, independent woman.
So fingers crossed this board will help me channel what I want in life and concentrate on the fact that before I can expect anyone else to love me I need to learn to Love Myself!!!
(I have no idea how some people can crank theirs out in an afternoon. This took me days!!)
I’m pleased with the end result. It took forever to get the arrangement right, but it’s done and I’m happy for this accomplishment. My first vision board – yay! 1 month ago
And I have two corners in place!
Hoping the rest of my images fit ok! 1 month ago
My sister uses the analogy that life is like a super-tanker, small changes change your life direction, and super-tankers are hard and slow to turn, so small adjustments are all that is needed.
I get caught up in the day to day grind, the hamster wheel of life…..get up, kids ready, go to work, weekends about housework…all that. 43 things is a great place to remind myself about my hopes, dreams, aspirations…..and to get cracking on them.
Another affirmation I like, is that drop by drop, my interest becomes a flood (or something like that, poorly paraphrased!). The idea that whatever sliver of time or interest you show, it all is a trickle towards your goals.
So however slight my writing here is, it is a trickle towards my goal.
A vision board, is another powerful way of telling my subconscious what I am interested in, and to FOCUS.
Like this greenhouse, as a focus for gardening and beauty 1 month ago
There is a house I would like to buy in my neighborhood that I want to photograph. And I want to start riding again, so I will take a photo of a horse on the local horse path. Add a garden and chicken coop, and this could be fun checking out places to get photos. 2 months ago
I realize I need to create one. I often put up pictures of my goals on bulletin boards, so this will be a more formal process of visualizing what I want in my life.
Plus it is fun to find pictures that represent my goals! I like this goal since it also allows me to be creative. :) 2 months ago
Sometimes inspiration comes from this site (Sometimes?! Ah. I should be here way more often!) in form of “How I did it”s, and I am actually kind of grateful for this now. Somehow I found a page online where you can make vision boards for free (or collages in general), it’s called PhotoVisi ... (I hope the link will work!)
I made two vision boards so far, one on the subject of animals I’d love to give a home to, and also one on the subject of TRAVELLING. I will make more of course, but so far, I am really proud. :)
I still want to do something offline, concerning this subject, but I made the experience that printing the pictures I wanted turned out the way that they were rather small, and since I like bigger pictures more, I decided to work on the vision boards online first, and then print them :D, and lastly maybe add some effects and other pictures once I am holding the vision board in my hands.
So thank you for the inspiration, people of 43Things! :D 2 months ago
