How to Create your Vision Board

Hello everyone. I want to talk about something that I hold very dear to my heart. I want to talk about Vision Boards, or Dream boards as some call it. I’ve had my first one for over 6 years and then I created 2 more, the more recent one its the one I’ve been working on now. Let’s start with the one from 6 years ago. I had watched an episode of Oprah in which she mentioned wish boards, where people post pictures of things they want. my dear Oprah also mentioned “The Law of Attraction” & “the Secret”. Someone in the panel mentioned how they posted a check with lots of zeroes on their wish board and their dream came true. I thought “NO WAY, THAT CANT BE REAL”. But for some reason at the end of the day I couldn’t stop thinking about the show and the stories. I looked at the book my mom had on the coffee table “The Secret” and I knew, I knew I had to read it or at least check out some chapters.

After reading the book and checking endless posts about “The Law of Attraction” and “The Secret” I decided to go to the store and grab some magazines, the ones that called my attention were: : Brides Magazine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart Living. Once I had them I went to Michaels and picked up a simple trifold display board, glue and some double sided tape. I got home and got down to business.

When I started looking through the magazines I had no idea what I wanted, I just cut the pictures or words that called out to me. At the end of the day I had finished my  first Vision Board, it was everything I wanted and more, but I have to say I still didn’t believe anything in there could happen but I just kept looking at it and believing that I DESERVED IT ALL.

Come a year later and I could see things starting to happen.. First I had the ring I posted, I had the baby girl (I posted a picture of a baby magazine and it just happened to be a girl) and then I had the wedding. I had posted pictures of different wedding dresses and even the color scheme we chose for our wedding was in my vision board (something I had never noticed)

After I had married  my husband I decided to do another board, we chose things we both wanted, and words that we both liked. and so far things are happening too, my husband has the job position he wanted, we got the bedroom set we also posted and also the Disney trip we wanted is also coming up next month.

Now, we are working on another one, we are planning on moving to a bigger place and hoping to buy a car as well and I am trying hard o make this blog a successful one. So I will let you guys know how it goes. For this new board I picked Sunset magazine, Traveler magazine, Good Housekeeping, Vogue, Oprah and In Style Home and Design for the pictures, In the meantime I recommend that all of you get to working on your Vision Board or write down your wishes or your dream and truly BELIEVE! I know something are so hard to believe that could happen but I also believe that if its meant to be then it will be. IMG_1943.JPGIMG_1942.JPG

I wish you all a great time creating your board, put all your faith into everything you do, faith goes a long way…

xoxo,

Cynthia

Resolutions! 

Hello guys! Ive been thinking about my “resolutions” for this year and to be honest, I cant say I have any. 

I mean i have GOALS in mind, but resolutions i feel change often and sometimes they just dont happen at all. 
So my goals for this year are: 

To make this a successful blog. Im not saying im the best writer out there, but I definitely try my hardest and i want people to come here to either, laugh, learn, or simply read a word of advice. It’s taken me a year since I left my job to finally make up my mind and decide that I want to give this a try. I want my voice to be heard or in this case, I want my words to be READ.

I also want to become a better baker than I am. Again, im not saying im the best baker but i love doing it. I love baking and cooking and I love to bake for my daughter, my husband, my family and I even love baking for my husband’s associates. 

I want to read more, I used to read 3-4 books a month. Now it takes me a month to finish just one book. I have to get back to that. I love reading, next to spending time with my daughter, reading is my favorite hobby 

I want to keep our apartment organized. It is really hard with a toddler running a around and toys everywhere, but I really want to declutter our space and donate some things we no longer need.

And yes. Id like to lose some weight too. I suffer from hypothyroidism and even though I am not overweight, I’d like to lose maybe 10 lbs. Go back to my pre-baby body and stay healthy, that is my main concern.

So, here they go… we shall see if I can make any of these happen by the end of this year. I hope whoever is reading this and whoever has made resolutions or set themselves some goals can make them happen. NEVER GIVE UP. I know people say that all the time. But always keep in mind how good you will feel once you do something people say you couldn’t do!
