Over the past two years, I’ve shared a couple of vision boards on the blog. I like to create these every so often to visualize my goals. It’s always interesting to look back on old boards and see how my wants have stayed the same or changed. It also allows me to visually see progress.
When I most recently reflected on my old boards, I noticed a lot of change. I think this is a result of my life changing a lot. For example, this year is my first in a while that I’m not in school. Now, I have my degree and am working in my field. My priorities overall have shifted, and now I have more time to create the life I want.
With that said, I felt it was time to create a new vision board that more appropriately reflected my current goals and attitude. Here’s how it turned out:
Let’s break it down:
- My new vision board is loaded with some words and quotes that really speak to me. I love quotes that relate to individuality and taking control of your life. They are on my board to remind me to always be intentional and always stay true to who I am.
- You may notice the b&w picture of the extra fringe jean jacket. TBH I want to recreate this jacket for myself. I’ll update you with a DIY project if I do. Also, I love the quote on the back: “Ain’t My First Rodeo.”
- I put some dollar signs on the board because I want to focus more on saving. I’ve always been a saver without thinking much about it, but I want to get more intentional about how I manage my money.
- There’s a lot of pink. This wasn’t really on purpose, but *surprise* it’s my favorite color.
Overall, this new vision board feels very me. I also feel like it gives off a very romantic vibe, which is what I wanted. I believe it’s important to romanticize your life and everything you got going on! In the words of Novalis:
“To romanticize the world is to make us aware of the magic, mystery and wonder of the world; it is to educate the senses to see the ordinary as extraordinary, the familiar as strange, the mundane as sacred, the finite as infinite.”
What’s on your vision board? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments or on Instagram. Let’s chat!
