Creating A Vision Board

Happy Thursday!
Today's post is about creating your own vision board.

If you really want to make changes and rock your world, vision boards are a good place to begin. You can create a vision board very easily and there are numerous ways to do it.

Start by first thinking about what area of your life you want to work on. You can make separate vision boards for each area. Alternately, you can create a family vision board that encompasses the entire family and the desires as a unit.

When you choose an area of your life to work on, be sure to focus on how you want to FEEL. For instance, accepted, loved, free...think about the feeling you want.

Once you have done this gather your supplies.

Supply List

★ Poster Board, Cord Board, or Even a Notebook
★ Scissors
★ Glue/Pins
★ Markers
★ Magazines or Books that can be cut up

On a side note, you can use poster board, a cork board, or poster paper. I have provided examples of vision boards below. Choose a style that works for you.

This is a notebook style. You can always add more pictures whenever you want. The drawback is that you have to take the time to look at this book, rather than just hanging the vision board on a wall you see at all times.

This is a good example of a vision board created on a photo editing program. 
This is a marvelous idea for a very focused vision board such a travel or adventure.
You can then print this in any size you wish and hang it up.

A very pretty vision board on corkboard. By adding prettiness into your vision board, you are automatically drawn to look at it all the time. This creates the feeling again again that you had when you first made the vision board. Be sure to hang this type of board in a prominent place where you will see it often.

You will need a large space to work so that you can layout all your supplies. The kitchen table is a great place to work. 

An important next step is to get into the mood!
Make sure you won't be interrupted for a few hours, turn on your favorite music, light some candles, or whatever makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. As you create your vision board you want all your positive thoughts focused on the task at hand.

Next, start looking through your magazines. As you look, cut out any images or words that make you feel good when you look at them. As an alternative, you can find all pictures and words that you seek on Pintrest. You can then print those pictures for your board.

Once you have gathered several pictures, take a look at them and pull out the ones that really align with the board you are creating. Any pictures that just do not fit the mood you want to invoke don't belong with the board.

Your next step is to arrange those pictures on your paper or cork board. Once you have everything where you want it, you are ready to begin gluing or pinning your pictures.

When your board is complete find a prominent place to hang it. If it is more of a private board, you can hang it in your bedroom or office. 

I have seen people use the side of their fridges for creating their boards too. A little note, if you use a cork board, you may enjoy this more as you can add and take away pictures anytime you wish.

A few images to get you started:

The words above really help keep your board focused and in line with what you want to attract more of in your life.
The images were all taken from a very inspiring pinner on Pintrest. Please follow this link to Positively Present to find more of the same inspirational words.

Use Pintrest to find more pictures or for inspiration on getting started.

Most of all have fun with it.
I'd love to see your finished board if you're willing to share and be sure to add any other helpful tips in the comments below.

Much Love,
