Why create a vision board?

Vision-Board-Poster-300x223I feel confident saying you have all heard about vision boards before, but what do they mean to you? Have you made a vision board before and if so what did you include on yours? If you have had a vision board in the past or you currently have one, did you find it to be beneficial, why or why not?

Honestly, I have heard about vision boards before, but I was not 100% clear on the purpose or what should be included in it. Of course, I am always intrigued about ways to add as many positive outlooks and or tools to life as I possibly can. With all that the world as a whole is going through at the moment, I think now is a time we all need as much positivity as we can get.rsz_vision-board-example

There are numerous reasons for having a vision board. As I list the questions I was curious about, though please note they are not in any particular order. What is the purpose? What should be included on a vision board? What is needed to create one? Do they really help? Are there any benefits and if so what are they?

There are several reasons to have a vision board and yet there aren’t any rules. Your vision board is a corporeal portrayal of a goal or goals you are focused on accomplishing. It is meant to be your dedicated exhibit of what you want in life. Your vision board can bring your ambitions, desires, dreams, objective, and intentions into your existence and cd8d1c_8bed59f4db02485fa79996edbf45b08c_mv2reality.

The sky is the limit to what you can include on your vision board. Your vision board can be your goals for career, relationship, home, travel, personal growth, education, spirituality, social life, education and anything else revolving around your goals. Your vision board can include things you want to view every day and motivates you. Any quotes, pictures, sayings, and places you desire going to, people that inspire you, reminders of events, and anything that encourages you.

You should give yourself time to create your vision board, it should be fun utilizing your creativity and NEVER stressful. I have discovered a few ideas to help start a vision board that might be helpful which include:dd51b203ce6b932b0643081b965a53ec

Pick~Me~Up~Thursday

images (1)Happy Friday Eve y’all! How was your week? I hope you had a fabulous week and you are ready to enjoy the upcoming weekend! My week did start off sad with my aunt passing away, but now she doesn’t have to live in pain anymore. Thankfully, her passing was peaceful and she had family around her for comfort. I guess in the last moments of life it is best to be in the comfort of your own home with family near, instead of in an uncomfortable hospital setting.

I did finally receive good news regarding my unemployment status yesterday. I could have already 2042c37730f6bfb6bbd9a7c4adcbea75told y’all that my termination was done illegally and I did absolutely nothing to deserve it. I am relieved to say that the state did agree with me and my employment was approved, which will help the struggles I was dealing with. The past 3 weeks have been a mixture of MASSIVE stress and also believing that everything happens for a reason and it was time to follow my dreams. Now that I am not in complete and total panic, my stress level will go down drastically. Of course I am going to continue looking for another job, but more important I can focus on diving into the freelance world.  Y’all already know how passionate I am about writing and how much I want that to be my career! 

music-quotes-music-gives-a-soul-to-the-universe-wings-to-the-mind-flight-to-the-imagination-and-life-to-everything-plato-wisdom-quotesWe have almost made it through another week and although my stress level will be coming down, I think it would have been a lot worse if I had not kept music in my ears. Of course, I love the quote I am sharing with y’all today, but I am going to love reading your thoughts on it as well. For the past few weeks, while I was insanely stressed and frustrated, I reduced some stress by writing more and always had music playing in my ears. I do think that there are some songs that are great to soothe the soul and then others that can take you somewhere else completely! 

I want to thank y’all for visiting my site today. I always appreciate you taking time to read what I share and enjoy reading your fabulous comments. c41b1c4f51883bfb4d67649ca5fa3228

I hope your Friday eve goes well with as little stress and pain as possible. Remember taking care of yourself is important and if that means taking breaks, take them! Your health is the most important and most other things can wait! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

new-monday-new-week-motivational-gym-quotesHappy Monday to y’all! I hope you enjoyed your weekend and you were able to do the things that bring you joy. At times, life can feel excruciating long, especially when you are dealing with extreme pain and changes in life. Then again, life can also be very short and unfortunately we never know what’s around the next corner. I guess the only thing we can do is, live life to the fullest and never stop reaching for our dreams!

Monday tends to be a difficult day because of alarm clocks brian-tracy-inspirational-quoteand the days being set-up for us. There is a schedule and things that must be done, but it could be worse. Right now, I do not have this and I actually miss that set in stone schedule. Monday, is the start of a new week when we can work towards correcting the wrongs from last week to create a better outcome! I find the quote I am sharing with y’all today, not only motivating, but empowering because there is nothing we can’t do if we just try! We try to never put limits to what we can accomplish in life, because we are fearless and full of determination! Are there goals you did not get to last week, but want 51LF0zzAaDL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_to achieve this week? What is one goal you are setting for yourself this week?

I hope your week starts off great and only gets better! May all your goals and dreams begin to become your reality! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!
