Every year we have a blank slate, don’t we?
We have a chance to start fresh.
What get the opportunity to ask ourselves questions like:
- What do I want to accomplish this year?
- Where do I want to go on vacation?
- What do I want my work life to look like?
- Who do I want to spend time with?
- What hobbies do I want to devote more time to?
- Should I change how I eat?
- Should I be more active?
- Am I saving enough money?
We have a chance to re-evaluate our choices and maybe set our course in a new direction.
Maybe we realize we are very frikkin’ happy with how our lives are going just as they are. This is welcome news, for sure, but I if you’re like me, you are probably interested in making your 2018 look a little different (eg: better) than 2017. Vision boards help us reframe our thoughts, reframe our thinking.
I find the practice of making vision boards to be an extremely helpful tool in helping me focus my activities and thoughts on what I want, and not what I don’t want.
I have made them all different ways, and for many different purposes. Recently I discovered my 2015 Vision Board (the photo above) and was surprised to see how different it looked compared to this year’s. For one thing, there was a lot more white space in it! I was also surprised to see how many things keep reappearing on my board from year to year (going to Italy!) that I haven’t yet accomplished. Time to do something about that…
Over the years I have streamlined my practice and designed a process that it works better for me.
I believe in this so much that I’ve created an online course to share it with you.

YAY!! Maybe #bebrave and post a photo, either here or in my One Brave Thing FB Group? Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/OneBraveThing/
I made my board today:)) Let’s wait and see;)))
YAY!!! That’s awesome!! Do you choose a word to focus on for the year as well? If you do, think about incorporating it into your board! Mine is “CLARITY”. I have also found it’s good to put the year on it, either as part of the board, or else you could write it on the back. When I went back to look at prior boards, I realized I would not have known when one of them was from if the date hadn’t been on it. 🙂
Yes, I’ve written a massive “My 2018” in the middle of the board:)))
