Did you know Jillian Michael’s has Podcasts? Me neither. I listened to one on making your personal living space relaxing by clearing up the clutter, getting rid of “negative energy” items (past relationship crap, “fat” pictures of yourself, etc) and replace them with positive energy items. One thing she mentioned was a Vision Board, which is like a bulletin board with motivating pictures, goals, dreams, etc. It got me thinking, and I made a little board of my own (using Apple’s iPhone app Pic-Collage).
Clockwise from top left corner:
1. Travel to New York. Now that Hawaiian Airlines flies direct to NYC, it makes booking and planning a trip so much easier. Another plus side is that I can use my mileage Visa card to help fund my flight or upgrade to first class!
2. Run a marathon. Or a half, 5k, 10k anything. I run the Great Aloha Run, but I want to add another event to that list. And one day, enter in the Na Wahine biathlon (12mi bike +5k run), once I get my bicycle.
3. GRADUATE! I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been in college since 2003. Of course, I’ve been a part time student that entire time, but had I been on the right track since the beginning, I would be done by now, but instead, I didn’t think to take summer school to speed up the process or check with a counselor which classes I should take (instead of taking the same math class twice and not even need it in the long run). Anyway, I’m on target to graduate during the Spring of 2013. I can’t wait!! It’ll be thee biggest accomplishment of my life.
4. Own my stand up paddle board (and be a pro at paddling it without falling off). Owning the board isn’t the main problem. It is rather pricey, but my main problem is that I need to save money for the surf racks for my car, then decide if I really want to snap on racks to my car. =/
5. Buy a house. I don’t know when this will be, but it’s definitely on my list of things to buy. I know that not everyone is meant to be a homeowner, but I want to give it a try.
6. Be a lean mean iron machine. It’s a working progress. Run faster, learn to do at least one double-under, easily curl 25 lb, and much more. I have a whole list of fitness goals, but I’ll leave that for another post.
What would your Vision Board look like?
