Vision boards like this one are great inspirational tools and can really help remind you of your goals. Having visuals that correlate to how we feel, what we value and what we aspire to achieve can help keep us motivate. And, they are also fun to create. The process of putting one together can often be cathartic or even help you to brainstorm additional ideas. Vision boards not only help us see the big picture of what we are trying to create or accomplish but also to appreciate all the minutia of what it takes to get there.
This is an excellent time to either begin a journaling practice or prepare for a fresh start in a new one. Writing down our thoughts and feelings is an incredibly powerful tool. Journaling can help us put ideas and thoughts we've had into perspective. It can also help us understand ourselves and recognize patterns of behavior, even see the possibilities we may not have had without such reflection.
You can reflect upon the memories that brought joy and inspiration to you. Continue on with things that you learned, either about yourself or about the world you live in and explore what kind of impact that had on you. Then, take time to think about the moments that were less than satisfactory. What didn't work out? Without internalizing blame, think about ways you can move forward from those experiences. Whether that's attempting new strategies, making life changes or setting personal boundaries, what we consider our defeats or hardships actually cause us to make important changes in our lives.
Use journaling as a tool of self exploration and organizing your thoughts. Some other ideas for moving forward in your practice would be:
Your writing can be a powerful tool to set your intentions as well as understand the person you are evolving into.
