I still use my organiser as I shared in this post, Organiser and journal combined. But for 2020, I have created a Vision Board and Gratitude Wall, by buying a large whiteboard and getting things on there. Half the board is my Vision Board and the other half my Gratitude Wall.
This will hang on my bedroom door, so I will see it morning and night, as well as any other time I am in my room. I have also added either a quote, or affirmation on my board since taking a photo of this.
The Vision Board has long term and short term goals.
The short term being my day trips I would like to go on that are near, or far, so I have something to look forward to this year.
The long term which I am basing on over the course of the next 2 to 3 years, is saving as much as I can. At the end of the 2 or 3 years, I want to see if I have saved the amount I would like to save to possibly help towards buying a house. Realistically though, it may be 3 years I more likely do it in. So if that’s the case, then another year extra I will aim for. But if I don’t manage to do this, or I choose not to continue down this route by that time, then I will look at moving privately in a 2 bed house.
Until then, I look at the houses online for sale and any that interest me, I walk to that street literally to view from the outside, so I see if my impressions change and also see if the area itself I would be happy to live in.
I have also looked at what is going for rent as well and done the same.
But if I am lucky to get a council flat in this time, that I bid on, then I will obviously take it.
The Gratitude Wall I expect to fill up, as the year progresses. I have already added further since I took a photo of this.
I hope by creating this board, that it helps to keep me motivated each day, feel a little hope and serve as a reminder of some things I plan to do, that I will be looking forward to, when things get difficult.
I hope to do this each year.
Do you use a vision board, or a gratitude board like this, or something similar?
Do you have any goals for this year?
