A recurring trend that I've seen to support New Years' Resolutions are vision boards. According to my trusty sources of dictionary.com, a vision board is "a collage of images and words representing a person's wishes or goals, intended to serve as inspiration or motivation."
I've always been a visually creative person. I like seeing words written out to inspire me; I like to highlight and colour code my day planner, and it's a large part of the reason that I pursued photography growing up.
This year, around January, I began to cut out inspiration words and phrases and photos that I found in magazines. I don't buy magazines often, so it took a bit of time to put the vision board together. Well, it's March, and I've finally finished it, so I'm pleased to show you!
I lucked out by having a Christian magazine that I had purchased on a road trip last summer, so I was able to pull some very inspiring pieces from that.
I included a quote from the book of Job and the Psalms in the Bible, along with a little list of things that I can do in my day-to-day to lead a more fruitful lifestyle. The lists include things like reading the Bible, praying, aiming for health and speaking life. The small write-ups underneath serve as a great reminder and motivator.
The other magazines were secular but still inspirational, depending on what you're looking for. Phrases like "Hidden powers" and "beauty begins beneath the surface" are there for inspiration as I continue to work on my reflection and self-confidence.
I was able to find some phrases to also encourage my health journey and to look at for motivation, "You must make yourself a priority. It is not selfish. Everyone is busy, but when can you prioritize the time for you?" and "Healthy eating shouldn't be hard or stressful. Instead, try creating a lifestyle around it."
There are also a lot of bright, vibrant images to keep me joyful and encouraged every time I look at it. There are images from places that I want to or have travelled to. You can look at the pictures and feel free to ask questions in the comments section if you'd like!
It took some time to find the "right" spacing for how I wanted it to look, but everyone's vision board will look different because we're all different people! I encourage you to spend some time over the next few months cutting out inspiring things that you find in a magazine or newspaper and begin making a vision board of your own!
