Hey guys! If you’re new to my blog, my name is Janessa-Michelle! I’m 21, about to be 22 next week! Whoot whoot! Um, I’ve been blogging for 3 years now and it’s been a great journey for me. I consider myself a young adult lifestyle blogger and basically keep that as my niche, here and there I’ll write a post about books I’ve read or I’ll write a letter to my future husband but sharing my life experiences is my main content. If you’re on Facebook and Instagram I will post my links so you can get to know me there as well! Anyways, let’s dive into today’s post!
As I was planning my blogging calendar I was looking at what topics to write about and I can across The Vision Board. If you don’t know what a vision board it’s basically putting your dreams or goals on paper. Mapping out your steps to achieve your goals, and just being that visual reminder of where you want to go.
First thing I did before putting my vision board together was finding my theme. What did I want to map out, what is my end goal, where do I want to go. With a being a blogger something I ALWAYS want to do is inspire others. So my theme for this vision board is my motto: Aspire to Inspire✨ I wanted to add things that inspire me, I wanted to put quotes and pictures that speak to me, that motivates me to be a better person. I feel that if I’m being inspired I can in turn inspire others. Your vision board does not have to be done a certain way but these are just a few suggestions I have that you can use in creating your own vision board. It doesn’t have to be like mine, but you can use it for anything really! Any goals, future life, or it could even be generalized dream you may have!
With a theme in mind, I scoured the magazines my roommate had and I cut out anything I felt was inspiring. Me being who I am I cut out so many things that it took me hours to get through all the magazines we had. I wanted my poster covered with positvity, empowering things and encouraging words. Something that will be a constant reminder for me to continue through the hard times and struggles. I wanted a visual representation of what my motto is and what I hope to live my life by. I encourage you to really think about what you want to see daily on your board. There is no right or wrong way to create your vision board so always keep that in mind. Having a theme is a great way to start because you now have a direction in where you want to go with your board. Don’t be scared and don’t hesitate. Be like Nike and JUST DO IT! You’d be amazed at your finished product. The most important factor in all of this is just to make your vision board YOU!
There are so many ways to create vision boards to make it your own. For me, I wanted my board covered as much as possible for this particular theme, but maybe you’d like it to be a little more less crazy and a little more controlled, or having that sense of a flow. When you make a vision board I strongly suggest doing whatever you think you should! Not everyone’s vision is the same and that’s okay. It’s FOR YOU, so make it YOURS! Be crazy, be creative, have fun with it. There are no limits to what you can achieve! I definitely enjoyed making my vision board and am looking into making more for my different goals and future endeavors. I hope this blog post encourages you to look into making your own! You’ll never know unless you try it out! Much love and positive vibes to you this week!
