It has been a minute in here and I am sorry for that hiccup! I promised to drop a new blog post every Sunday and I missed out on last week’s post. While I apologize for that, I am excited to let you know, I hosted my first vision board party for twenty-somethings on the 7th of December, 2019.
Yass!! I did it! This means a whole to me as I remember on my bucket list for 2019 was to host an event and now we can mark that as done. Grateful to God, family, and friends who came through for me and made this a success.
The vision board party was an idea I conceived in my head around June of this year, can’t remember exactly how the thought came but I do remember running a poll on my Instagram story about vision boards.
The poll ran in the positive with a lot of people indicating interest and boom, I decided to host one. I didn’t have all the details but I started promoting the event. I even went as far as creating a form for people to register the next day. From then till the d-day, it was a roller coaster of emotions but God saw me through.
I still can’t wrap my head around all of it, still feels unreal and I am yet to find the right words to describe it so I will let the pictures from the event do the talking. Moments captured by the amazing Desuwa.
In the meantime, I will take a couple of minutes to answer some questions a few people asked me during the course of planning and executing this event.
What is a vision board?
It is a visual representation of the ideas, goals, aspirations and dreams you hope to achieve within a given period. For further explanation, it is you putting a physical picture to all those abstract ideas stuck in your head.
This exercise helps you gain clarity, helps you decide on what to focus on. With a picture of your goal before you, it is easier to work towards them and always remember why you started.
What is a vision board party?
While you can work on creating your vision board alone, it is advisable to do it with friends and individuals with like minds. With this, you are inspired to have a vision board, have someone to hold you accountable and more.
