My Top 15 Moments in 2015

  1. My Vision Board Party

I think having a Vision Board party in January set the tone for an amazing year. I still get comments from my friends saying their vision boards helped them check off goals on their list that they probably wouldn’t of done without the help of their boards reminding them. My board is still something that empowers me when I look at it. I am encouraged to remain strong willed and grounded.

  1. Dubai

That glitch fare on Christmas day last year allowed me to go to Dubai for only $200. What a blessing that was. Dubai’s desert was probably my favorite part. That vast landscape of beautiful sand and horizon is something that will forever be embedded in my heart.

How to Plan a Vision Board Party

IMG_9869So you want to plan a vision board party. Well, as someone who just hosted a very successful one, I’ll explain how. It’s rather simple and it was an idea that came about randomly. I knew it wouldn’t take much thought to put together and it would be a fun excuse to bring close friends together for an afternoon of fellowship and fun.

Google Docs

I am going to start this post off with a tip. Google Docs is the best. I used google docs to plan out my party and create a contact list for attendees.

Invite list

Unless you have the space, its important not to invite too many people since this is a huge arts and crafts task that requires time and space. Also since a vision board party outlines someone’s inner most desires for their present and future be mindful of who you invite and make sure everyone is encouraging to one another.

Invitation

Figure out a date, time and location. I sent all my invites via e-vite. I found a cute template and the rest was history. Most importantly, my invitations didn’t cost a dime and I was able to keep track of who viewed the invitation and rsvps.

The invite encouraged people to answer the following questions:

  1. What is my vision for my life?
  2. What are my dreams?
  3. What do I need to do to achieve my dreams?
  4. How much of my past is shaping the way I think and what I do? Is it effecting my present and future?

I also encouraged people to bring their own magazines. Continue reading “How to Plan a Vision Board Party”

How to Make a Vision Board

In a previous post I touched on the idea of Virtualization . Now I want to put virtualization into effect with vision boards. Creating vision boards is nothing new to me. I used to do this throughout college and even won an excellence in communication award for representing ageism and race in a collage (but that’s neither here nor there).

What you need to create a vision board is simple:

  • Magazines, which I am sure many of us have those at our disposal
  • Poster Board which you can get for about $1 or less
  • Glue and Scissors

IMG_9846You can spend about 30-minutes to 1-hour looking through magazines. I love to find great words and titles for my vision board. I am always on the search for words like Strength, Freedom, Woman, Travel etc. I also love abstract and strikingly beautiful pictures. Colorful, bright and inspiring. I rip everything that is aesthetically pleasing to me and I put them in a section. Continue reading “How to Make a Vision Board”
