2018 Vision Board

Over the past few years I have made a vision board for my word for the year. I used a method suggested by Ali Edwards of cutting out magazine pictures and words and adhering them to canvas. They made great visual reminders through the year of what I hoped to see happen through focusing on my word.

This year, with my focus on using an Everyday Journal, I thought I would do something different than the vision board on a canvas. I wanted to do something that would fit in my Everyday Journal. Using two pieces of cardstock I folded them in thirds and then glued them together, overlapping one of the thirds on each piece. This gave me an accordion fold journal page to insert into my journal.

My plan was to take one side and put together a vision board with pictures and words that fit my word, flow, and my goals living out this word for the year. Then on the other side I would write out my intentions. Intentions are simply goals or plans connected to my word for what I would like to see happen over the next year.

Once completed I attached the accordion fold journal to a page in my Everyday Journal.

If you are a part of our Everyday Journals ~ Living Your Word of the Year group I want to encourage you to create a vision board for your word. Vision boards are a good way to visualize your word and its meaning, as well as thinking about your plans for your word. Then consider setting intentions or goals of how you would like to see your word lived out in your life in the year ahead.

You can join our conversation around our faith, Everyday Journals, and living out your word in 2018 at livingyourwordoftheyear.
