Creating a Vision Board

Do you remember what it felt like to have a dream come true? We all have hopes and dreams, but sometimes we get caught up in the day to day of our lives that our dreams get pushed aside, forgotten about or simply abandoned. Perhaps like me, you dreamed of becoming a mom and then maybe you stopped thinking about yourself and began dreaming for your children. Dreaming about what their life would be like and about how you can support them in their endeavors, or dreaming about what they would become. And somewhere along the line, you stopped dreaming for yourself.

It’s no secret that moms put aside their own needs for those of their children. The same can often be said for our dreams. Ever catch yourself thinking “I am too old” or “I don’t have enough time”? We may stop dreaming for ourselves because we have other priorities that demand our time, attention and resources – usually our families or our jobs and we feel like we “don’t have enough time or money” to pursue our dreams. These are some of the same thoughts that I had when I created my first dream board in 2012.

When I created my first dream board I wasn’t sure where to start. I mean, I had heard of vision boards and other people who use them and swear by them, but I had never considered creating one. I wasn’t really sure of what to even put on my board. I started by creating a list of all things that I desired, my so-called list of dreams. This list included things like getting a new car, getting married, travelling to Greece, having a baby – and accomplishing all of that in a life that I created for myself on my terms.

Creating a Vision Board

I dove in head first and signed up for a dream board workshop by Angela Strank. One of the first things I learned was that the subconscious mind is more powerful than our conscious mind and that it speaks in the language of imagery. It’s kind of like our kids are the ‘conscious mind’ and us moms are the ‘subconscious’. The conscious mind *thinks* it’s driving the ship, but really it’s the subconscious mind doing all the work. Once I understood this, I found the perfect images to put on my board to represent my dreams and then hung up my board so that I could visualize my dreams every day in hopes that they would come true. And you know what, they did!

A few months after I hung up my board, the first “there’s something to this dream board thing” moment happened. One of my dreams was for clear skin free from psoriasis. I was introduced to a product that was all natural and although not intended as a therapy for psoriasis it did wonders to clear my skin! Anyone else also living with psoriasis knows what a dream come true this is! Man, was I excited!

Later that year I got engaged, and a few months later I got a new car. Soon after, I had the fairy tale wedding of my dreams! While we were planning our wedding, my fiancé and I were discussing possible honeymoon locations when an amazing deal came into my email for travel to Greece. Wouldn’t you know it! Greece was on my dream board and my fiancé told me that he had also wanted to visit Greece one day. I guess the time had come to live out another dream!

Creating a Vision Board

Before heading to Greece, we stopped in Los Angeles to watch a taping of The Price is Right. It was always a childhood dream of mine to be on the show and guess what?! I was the first person called down, I won the item up for bid and I won the game that I played! All this resulting in some unexpected riches, which was something I had on my dream board!

Shortly after the airing of the show, I discovered that I was pregnant with my second child. I have since given birth to a beautiful, red headed, little girl who I dreamed about for many years before I even began dating my husband! I can say with 100% certainty that I am now living the life of my dreams, a life that I visualized and created for myself and it all began when signed up for the dream board workshop five years ago and ignored those skeptical thoughts telling me that I couldn’t achieve my dreams.

Since then, I have created more boards and watched many more dreams come true. In fact, I’m going to be attending my fourth dream board workshop with the incredible Angela Strank next month!
