Today is National Vision Board Day! Who knew this was a thing, right?
Well, I’m glad it is because that means we can get our creative juices flowing. And we get to imagine and envision our goals and dreams becoming a reality.
There is so much power in painting a picture and creating a world that isn’t here yet. Imagination and dream casting reignites our passion for life. It helps up create our future.
You know, sometimes our routines and responsibilities make us forget to dream, to have fun, to get creative, and to build our future. Being present is necessary. Being responsible is necessary.
But once in a while, it’s good to become a kid again. Break out the glue, scissors, and glitter! Let’s imagine and pray over the goals and dreams God has placed in our hearts.
For some reason, when we start seeing it and creating it and putting it on paper (or board in this case), these things start to seem possible. What we’re basically doing with this creative exercise is fanning into flame the gift of God, which He has given to each and every one of us (2 Timothy 1:6-7).
So, what do you need to create a Vision Board for 2019? Very simple:
- A cork board or large piece of construction paper
- Your word(s) for the new year
- Markers and pens
- Inspiration from magazines and/or Pinterest
- Download Styld by Grace hand-lettered words
- Download Styld by Grace illustrations
- Ribbon, glitter, fabric, anything you can find at home that inspires you
- Arrange all the inspiration, printouts, verses, etc. on your board
- Place it in a space where you can see it every day.
Bonus: brew a cup of coffee, pick your favorite mug, sip on it while creating. This is just to set the mood 😉 Some music may help too.
The most important thing is to be honest with yourself. Ask yourself what you want 2019 to look like. Maybe that means fitting into an old pair of jeans. Maybe it means finally having the courage to get that haircut. Maybe it means starting a business (what does that look like?). Maybe it means starting a family. Or maybe it’s refurnishing and designing a room in your home.
Whatever you see, whatever you’ve written down as goals, translate them into pictures and visuals, and put them on your board.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
