While all of the New Year’s resolutions and goal-setting time may be considered “over” now that it’s February, I like to think of the start of a new month, February in particular, not only a good time to check in with your goals for the new year so far but also treat it as a fresh start, like it’s a new year all over again when you’re more motivated to work toward your goals.
I’m definitely guilty of setting goals and giving them up two weeks into the new year in the past. But ever since I entered the adult world, I shifted my priorities and made strong efforts to stick with my New Year’s goals for the whole year by setting realistic and attainable goals and manifesting and working for the things I wanted that year.
This brings me to today’s topic of vision boards, or mood boards how they’re also known as.
Going into 2022, I dedicated some time to productive Pinterest scrolling and pinning, gathering images and inspiration of what I want my 2022 to look like and the things I want to manifest into reality this year, and compiling everything together in a collage in Canva. I found this process alone to be super motivating and actually felt really excited and hopeful, and still do for that matter, for what’s to come in 2022. The collage that I threw together has been my desktop, phone, and iPad wallpapers since January 1st since I check these devices daily so that way I am constantly reminded of my goals and what I’m manifesting this year.
Having that visual each time I look at my electronic devices really does more wonders than you may think since it’s a constant and easy reminder to help stay on track. But not only that. I also have my goals written down in my planner, something I also use every single day, and typed out in my Google Keep where I have my 2022 goals laid out and where I can track my progress on each, broken down by each aspect of my life that I have set goals for this year, being career, blog, relationship, health and wellness, etc. I can’t stress enough how important writing down your goals or having that visual of a vision board on something you look at every day is to stay on track with your goals. Plus checking off those little checkboxes and seeing my dreams come to life is super satisfying to me!
So even though we may be in February now, it’s really never too late to start, especially still being so early in the year. Make it a goal this weekend to set aside some time and create your vision board if you haven’t already, it could even be a fun date or friend date idea! If Pinterest isn’t your thing, you could even try making a real-life vision board! Go through magazines and cut out inspiration and tape it to your board to make your own collage out of it and hang it up in your room or somewhere where you know you’ll see it every day and make your dreams come to life!
One of my biggest content goals this year is to explore TikTok more and grow my community through the platform and I am excited to get into more video content! To see my personal vision board in action, head to my TikTok video here where I share all the things I’m manifesting this year.
