4 reasons to create a Vision Board

I love New Year's rituals. The grapes at 12pm, the colorful underwear and the suitcase on New Year's Eve are always there. Additionally, at the beginning of the new year I choose an Intention and make a Vision Board. I like every year when starting a new cycle, to have a space for reflection and a genuine connection with myself that allows me to define the goals I want to achieve.

I have many dreams, but sometimes I get lost in the challenges of everyday life and they remain unfulfilled. Mom's life was one of my dreams, but I never thought how much it could distract me from the other goals I wanted to achieve. That's why I think a Vision Board is necessary every year to keep the focus on my life beyond motherhood. vision board

Vision board: a tool to achieve goals

The vision board is a graphic representation of the dreams I want to achieve. It is a board, physical or digital, where I organize images that reflect the goals I want to pursue.

I also like to include aspirations, experiences and even feelings that I want to live in the future. Creating the vision board is also a special moment in itself. Since 2019 I met with the same group of friends to dream big together.

4 reasons to make a Vision Board

For me the best way to start a new year is with focus and purpose. I make a Vision Board because:

  1. It helps me connect emotionally with the resolutions I have for the year. It’s a visual commitment of my intention and goals.
  1. It’s a constant reminder of my dreams and goals. Being a mother and having a life full of to-do’s, is a recipe to forget the goals that I want to achieve. I tend to prioritize the needs of my family, which is why the Vision Board keeps me focused on what I want for me.
  1. It’s a visualization tool, but also a decision-making one. When I have to make a decision or prioritize my time, I look at the Vision Board, connect with my dreams and decide what to say yes to and what to say no to.
  1. It helps me measure results. Although it’s true that not all the dreams that I glue into the Vision Board come true in a year, many of them do and this tool helps me to analyze at the end of the year what worked for me and what did not. This information helps me a lot when I'm planning for the next year because I can review what I've accomplished and how far I've come.

Do you see why creating a Vision Board has become an essential ritual at the beginning of my year?

If you want, I would love for you to write and reflect on your dreams for this coming year. I want every step you take this year to help you get closer to achieving your goals, and to be a worthy year in your life. Because dreams come true and mine is that you continue to be a powerful WowMom.
