I started my vision board years ago and it has been lying dormant in my parents house unfinished and not looked at for a long time. When I started making this board I was really in a weird place in my life. I had just gotten out of a long-ish term relationship, I was unhappy in my current job and I was just realizing that health and fitness had or was going to have a huge part in my life but wasn’t exactly sure how to fit it in.
As I was packing up my old bedroom this past weekend, my mom asked if I was going to keep it. I first noticed that I had never fully finished (and said I should) and secondly I noticed I had already realized a bunch of my visions.
This made me take a second to think back on the last few years and how much I have accomplished.
Ran my first half marathon
This has been something I have been wanting to do for years. What I really needed to accomplish this goal, but didn’t know until recently…a friend. I needed my running buddy and bestie to be there by my side and that she was. It was an amazing experience and I had a blast training and running with one of my best friends.
Spontaneity and exploration
Now, I doubt I will ever say that I have fully completely being spontaneous or that I have fully explored all that I want to explore but I did book a trip to Iceland on a whim and travel by myself. It was one of the most amazing trips of my life and I cannot wait to go back one day (hopefully with SL).
Iceland Trip Recaps:
When I sat with my advisor (who later turned out to be one of my favorite professors) to make my schedule I though Spring 2014 would never come. But low and behold it did, two and half long, hard years later I am officially a grad school graduate.
I haven’t fully completed everyone of my vision board but it is a fun reminder to push for the things in life that will make your life most worth living. I am going to finish my vision board and keep it someone a bit more prominent so it is always reminding me to strive for more.
