Inspirational Board

Written by Angela
My Inspirational Board

 I’m going to give total credit for this idea to my friend Cali! Her soul screams inspiration through and through. She got me through so many rough times in college and kept me positive as much as possible!

Now that I am a mom who stays at home with her kids, I need inspiration more than ever! Sometimes I find it a struggle to get out of bed and find meaning in my life…and I’m sure I’m not the only one! It becomes even harder when the crying and tantrums of your kids morph your day into a complete blur. I need a constant reminder of who I am and why I do what I do. For me, this reminder needs to be visual.

Cali always had an inspirational or an “I love me” board hanging in her room in college. She had cut outs from magazines, books, and anything she could find that brought about positive thoughts and her goals. This could include quotes or photos of places to visit, workouts, foods, family, basically anything that helps you remind yourself of who you are and what you get true happiness from.
I used several magazines that I like to make the collage.

All you really need is a board, this could be a bulletin board, poster board, anything you can find. Get some old magazines and find some photos that bring you happiness. Grab some photos of your family and kids. Find some postcards of places you want to see. Assemble everything into a collage and hang it somewhere you will see it every day.
God is in the top corner as the first thing I look at from left to right.
I have a photo of my husband and I to remind me that our relationship is a top priority.
I've always wanted to travel to Manchu Picchu in Peru!
I have a piece of cloth to represent my love for sewing and being creative. I also have a theme of fitness scattered through out. I love to work out; it makes me feel happy and positive.
I have photos of my kids to remind me of how my life has changed forever, in a good way, because of them. "Look Great" is next to them to remind me to never "let myself go" by being too overwhelmed with the kids' needs.

Hopefully this little reminder helps you stick to your goals for the new year and beyond!
