One of the awesome things I got to do as a designer, was make “vision boards.”
These were “story boards” for a product that we would use to communicate the story we were creating; how we wanted people to see and feel about the product we were designing.
Although I enjoyed doing them for my work, I can’t tell you how much I LOVE doing them for MYSELF!
Whenever I have a project or a change I want to make in my life, I do a vision board.
There is incredible power in “seeing” what you want in your life.
I have been using iterations of vision boards for what I want since I was a child.
Early on it was how I would spend my allowance. I would have a picture of what I was saving up for: a record album, a doll, a new sweater. I would see it and imagine how I would feel when I could listen to it, play with it, wear it…
As a teenager, I’d save pictures from magazines of models or outfits I liked. Style icons of sorts, these helped me get in touch with how I wanted to look and feel, and helped me shape my personal style.
In college, playing with vision boards and focusing on what I wanted to achieve helped me choose my career.
As an adult, I have created my homes, reshaped my body and health, planned events and manifested dream vacations.
All with the help of seeing and feeling how I wanted things to go.
Vision, or “inspiration” boards allow me to express my wishes to the universe, and really see and feel where I want to go. Experiencing the feelings you will have when you realize your end result has a profound effect on bringing things you dream of to pass.
Your story is powerful, and you have a say in how it’s written.
