After binge-watching Sarah Akwisombe’s youtube channel, I decided to make a vision board for everything I want to achieve in 2018. Basically, a vision board, rather than a mood board, is everything you want from the world – want a new car? Stick a car on there. Want happiness? Put on pictures that represent that feeling for you. With the help of Pinterest, magazines and a little blu-tack, an hour later my board for 2018 was complete.
I chose to be a little more metaphorical with most of my board, but I did put on some fairly obvious things. Starting off, I want to earn more money this year. Gone are the days of putting myself down and berating myself, saying I’ll never earn enough money. I now visualise myself as a woman with money, and I feel like it’s working. My vintage shop’s sales are up, blog work is coming in and I’ve had three sponsored instagram posts already this year.
The nails and flowers are a representation of things I can have when I earn more money; little things like that might be nothing to some, but they’re certainly not things I could afford regularly last year. I may be being counter-productive by aiming small, in terms of law of attractive anyway, but I thought I’d start off with little things that make me happy for now.
