I spent the entire night trying to figure what today's post is going to be about. Since I've gotten the hang of writing four hundred to six hundred word articles, my drive to go out and take outfit photos – on my roof top that is – have diminished quite a bit. In the end, I finally found that one thing that's always been staring at me in the face. My Vision Board.
A Vision Board, for those of you unfamiliar with it, is a board compiled with your goals and dreams. From getting job opportunities and going to your favorite places to getting to your ideal weight and finding out who you are. I like to think of vision boards as a glimpse into our future. When we stare at it, we being to imagine our goals and dreams in action, and if that's not a glimpse into the future, then I don't know what is – unless you're a gypsy, then that's a whole different story.
Unsure of the reasons why my belief for vision boards never actually vanished since I realized that nothing happened after it was up for more than 6 months, perhaps it was my drive to keep going, or perhaps it was the amount of hope and faith that maybe one day, one day, I'll get what I've always wanted and what I deserve.
My vision board is placed in a section of my room that I always look at when I'm thinking. It's by my desk so whenever I would look up, deep in thought trying to find the words to express my emotions, it was there. While practicing yoga and morphing my body into the tree pose or dancer pose, my drishti – which is when one focuses on a particular point for concentration and balance – would always be on a pin of my vision board.
If you don't have the budget to buy a pin board and print out photos or cut out images from magazines, you could always use Pinterest.com. It can work as vision board and it makes things a lot easier since Pinterest has everything from beautiful scenery to inspiring words.
