You might be surprised that I’m blogging about vision board ideas. After all, the past year was a total…okay, I’m not going to say what I’m thinking, but it rhymes with “hit show,” and it was a show I never want to see again. But I’m still feeling hopeful about the future, and making a vision board online is a good way to find fresh motivation.

What is a vision board?
Usually, a vision board is a collage of images, along with some words and phrases, that represent your vision for the year to come, or even for the rest of your life. It’s a visual representation that reminds you of your goals and serves as a powerful source of inspiration.
One of the most traditional ways to make a vision board is to get a big stack of magazines and go through them, cutting out images and words that inspire you or strike your fancy. You paste these onto a piece of poster board. Some people arrange the elements into categories, and some people just put them together in a way that feels right to them. I’ve done it this way before, both by myself and with my sister, and it’s a lot of fun.
However, there are also drawbacks. You have to spend money on the vision board supplies—and if you have to buy magazines, they’re not cheap, even if you buy them secondhand at Half Price Books like I did. An even bigger drawback is that it can be difficult to find images to represent your specific vision and goals. For that reason, I’ve been looking into how to create a vision board online.
