This weekend we hosted our 2017 Vision Board Brunch and it was AMAZING!!!!!
We’ve been hosting this event in southern Arizona for 3 years now, our last time creating this experience was actually in 2015 when we held one event in Sierra Vista, AZ and another in Tucson, AZ the following weekend.
We had a great group of women (and a few women-to-be) in the room where Mo talked about the power of a vision board when setting goals for yourself, and she also shared a few realizations from her last board.
We enjoyed brunch bites, “faux-mosas”, we had our music and a stack of magazines to flip through.
a few ladies had never made a vision board before
one guest refused to leave until she finished her board
one guest planned to make her teenage children do a board
one guest got emotional while thinking about her goals
one guest got jealous looking at the pics from our last event & was determined to attend this year
one guest was close to making her board but decided to crawl around on the floor instead
We also had a guest that attended our last two Vision Board events share what she’s been able to accomplish by setting intention in her life. She was also determined to attend this year because she’s ready to Elevate herSLAY for 2017.
We had such a wonderful time, check out the recap video below:
It’s safe to say that we won’t be taking any more breaks with hosting this event. Who knows, we might do a midyear check-in event with these ladies 🙂
Let’s keep it real – there’s a lot of 2016 residue left that might be threatening your “New Year, New You” attitude. Last year I unplugged more than I ever have, and I continue to guard my ears, eyes and heart to keep my space foolishness-free.
If you’re finding yourself struggling a bit with holding on to your balance so you can take things up a notch this year, I’ve got five tips to help you reset, renew and restore for 2017:
Unplug. Make a decision to tune out on purpose, I promise you won’t miss much. The 24-hr news cycle is exhausting, consuming so much negativity weighs on your spirit, don’t do that to yourself. A digital detox is good for the sanity.
Clear your space. Clutter makes things cluttered. If you’re finding it difficult to clear your head when you’re in your zen space, it may be time to get rid of some things, physically and mentally. Eliminate extras and allow yourself the room to focus on what’s most important.
Change the rules. Dr. Phil says that you teach people how to treat you, and there’s no time like the present to shift the momentum in your favor. You have the power to dictate who and what comes into your space when.
Find your squad. Do you have a support circle? A group of friends that you can keep it real with? If you don’t have one, find them ASAP. Those people will keep you out of jail, seriously…..
5. Practice self-care. Whether it’s a hot bath, prayer, walk, bike ride, boxing class, it doesn’t matter. Do whatever you need to do to keep your cup full! When you don’t take care of yourself you can’t take care of anyone or anything else. Make you a priority.
This year is about intentional action – intentionally putting you first so you can slay in everything else.
This time of year is a time for reflection. 2016 definitely had its ups and downs – unexpected celebrity deaths, a tumultuous Presidential race, some innovation and worldly success – but what every person has in common entering the new year is the desire to achieve some sort of positive change or personal goal.
New Year’s resolutions seem to get a bad rap, a good example of this is the cliché of the gym being overcrowded the first few weeks of January and becoming a ghost town by March. You don’t have to give up on your dreams once the sparkle of the New Year fades – creating a vision board to bring your goals to life brings you one step closer to achievement and personal growth.
Luckily, this Christmas my artistically-talented sister decided to make me (from scratch!) a beautiful, ornate chalk board. Since my focus is always on overall wellness my first thought was to make a New Year’s vision board. What better way to start fresh and get stuff done?
Seeing is believing. Personally, I am a visual learner. Throughout all of my years of education I was really good at taking notes, making flashcards, and studying for tests. Setting small and larger, long-term goals on my vision board allow me to envision my plans and create the steps to take action. My main goals are wellness and career related. I even have a few financial hurdles I want to fly over. I have it split into three categories: I aim to be well, successful, and free. The bullet points are the roads I must travel to get there, such as drinking more water or boosting my savings as much as I can (pardon my handwriting!). My vision board is a great tool in implementing strategies and solutions to success.
Setting your intentions for the year ahead is half of the battle. If you take the time to write down and really ponder what you wish to accomplish, that sets the wheels in motion for positive change. Holding yourself accountable and making a plan you can easily follow using a vision board is a great place to start, and if you’re in the southern AZ area, you’re invited to attend our 2017 Vision Board Brunch on January 28!
