I recently participated in a vision board activity. And I’m really pleased with what I created and where this is going to lead me. I’m sharing this because I thought you might want to create something similar.
The facilitator had us select a magazine from a pile of 12 (representing each of the months for 2016), and then quickly leaf through the pages until an image called to us. We then tore out the image and wrote a few words that popped into our heads. We went through this process twelve different times and when the session ended, I had a pile of twelve images with 2-3 words scribbled next to them.
I let these images sit for several days until I figured out how to display them and I was going to use them.
I decided that I wanted these words, these elements, to have a special emphasis within their designated month. So, for January, my three words are: new experiences, joy, and exhilaration. Sounds like a great way to begin the New Year, right?
In February I will be concentrating on surprise, goofiness and the unexpected. Sounds like fun!
Each month I will actively be seeking these elements in the people I meet, the places I go and the thoughts I have. And I plan on creating opportunities for my words to manifest in multiple ways.
Here’s what January and February look like on my vision board.
I’m thinking this is going to be a year long scavenger hunt!
Now It’s Your Turn
If you could choose 3 words to invite into your life for January, what would they be? How would they change things?
