Vision Board

Inspired by fellow YouTuber, Rebecca Dawson, I decided to create my own vision board to help me with my weight loss journey.  I've always been of the mind that if you believe something strongly
enough you can manifest it through hard work and dedication.  Before seeing Rebecca's board I had simply written my goals in a bullet format in my planner.  While this worked to keep them in mind I find that having the visual board gets me jazzed about my goals a little bit more because I can picture myself doing these things.

So let's get into it!

Top Left: I've always wanted to try my hand at cosplay.  I've always loved costumes and theatrical makeup but by the time I learned that cosplay was an actual thing I was already far too overweight to be comfortable trying it myself.  Of course I don't believe that one must be a certain size to portray fictional characters but for me personally I don't like extra attention when I don't feel comfortable with myself so I have never had the guts to try it.  That's changing soon, baby!

Top Center: Growing up in Arizona, skiing was a never a part of my life in any way other than television.  Now that I live in Minnesota it seems that its everywhere!  Plus there is a downhill ski slope less than ten minutes from my house.  The only thing stopping me now is my lack of knowledge, extra weight, and legendary klutziness.  Thankfully I also have a glowing lack of common sense so let's do it!

Top Right: I've decided that when I get to 170 pounds (the smallest size I can remember being as an adult) I'm going to get a half sleeve tattoo that I've named "Obsession".  The one pictured is NOT the one I'm getting but it's a good placeholder for the art that I have in mind.  

Center Left:  Another of those things that I imagine I'd not be too good at but will have a blast trying is paddle boarding.  My logic in this is simple:  I imagine it will hurt a lot less when I take a tumble from this thing into the water than it will when I trip over my own ski and tumble down the hill.  Hmm...I seem to be setting myself up for a lot of injuries.

Center Mid 1:  Fashion photography has long been a dream of mine.  While I love shooting families and seniors I would be ecstatic to be able to design and shoot fashion.  The more eclectic the better!  So this one is on here to keep me accountable for that goal.  Why is it on a weight loss journey board?  Because my weight makes me hella self-conscious and that shows in my performance as a creative director.

Center Mid 2: I just love these blanket poncho things!!  Not sure if I'll be comfortable enough to rock this look this year but by next I know I'll be ready.

Bottom Left:  Another of my goals is to get more comfortable with makeup.  I love experimenting with different looks (as you'll see throughout my YouTube channel and in this blog) and would love to get a lot more familiar with techniques and different brands.

Bottom Right: This one is pretty self-explanatory.  I want to continue to advance in my running skills and eventually be able to run further and faster.
