Updated December 2023

You know I’m a visual person, right? Images hold a tremendous amount of power for me. I like words, too, but they flow in and out of my head without catching hold quite the way that images do.

So, I typically plan my life through collage.

I assemble images and words that speak to me (mostly cut from old magazines) into a visual reminder of what I’m about and what I want to focus on. And what I want to bring into my life.

In other words, I make a vision board for myself.

I’ve also heard these called dream boards, goal boards, inspiration boards, future boards, and soul collages. But I call them vision boards.

I do this around the New Year and then usually again at some point if I’m feeling the need to readdress my goals and intentions.

And so, I thought I’d share some of my more recent vision board ideas and examples that may help you get inspired.
