I’m a visual person, so vision boards are helpful to keep me focused on my goals. I did a vision board a couple of years ago and liked it, so I decided to do another one this year.
I wrote earlier this month about my word for 2017: PURPOSE. This year, my goal is to be more present with my family, to simplify my life, and to live out my purpose.
I’m off to a good start so far. I resigned from my government job last month. It was good paying, but not fulfilling to me mentally or creatively. Now I’m working for less money, but in a job that feels like it was created just for me. And it’s just down the street from my kids’ school, so lunch dates can be much more frequent.
My vision board process is simple: thumb through old magazines and cut out any word or photo that speaks to me. Then I lay them all out on my dining table and start with the most important words first. With a glue stick, I then apply them to a piece of poster board. (I went with half a sheet of poster board this year — again SIMPLIFY.)
“for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”(?Philippians? ?2?:?13?)
Some focus words for me this year include: love, family, hope, saving, travel, speak truth, nourish, balance, what matters now, dream and powerful — just to name a few.
I’m excited about what 2017 holds for me and my family.
Do you make a vision board? What is your focus or goal this year?
