2012 Vision Board

Happy Monday...hope your first two days of 2012 have been excellent!

The idea of a vision board resonated with me 
because it's taking your SMART goals and making it visual.
And it's also better than than just making resolutions.  
Of course i didn't actually complete my vision board before 2012
 so i thought i would take today to dream a little and visualize what i want this year to look like!

I was going to use the magazines i had lying around to create my board
but unfortunately i didn't get to it...
therefore i will use Pinterest to complete my vision board.

 HEALTH
continue training for the half marathon!
eat clean most days!
Read a book a month

CAREER
work hard and enjoy what i do!

FINANCES

Source
I will NOT be wearing the money i am making (buying clothes, shoes, starbucks)
instead we will be saving in the Team Pancakes' savings fund.

FAMILY
Team Pancakes would like to travel some more!
The big trip is definitely Ghana!

BLOG
initiate 52 Weeks of Love 
and a weekly linky party to meet and introduce other bloggers.
Have some blates (in person meet-ups)

Good morning my dear but for some reason I am not able to see the posting I sent you with the Vows of being married, I can read it in google reader but I am un-able to comment or read anyone else comments. Can you please help me out here...when I click the link it says your page does not exist which I find kind of weird because I am able to get this blog you posted for today.

Elizabeth and Kyle @ Love Is the Adventure said...

I think Ghana would be an AMAZING trip! I'm going to go ahead and start looking forward to your posts about THAT, too. :)

I love the Blogger's Resolution you put up. I might steal that.

And vision boards are such a good idea!! I'll be excited to hear how that shapes up this year.

~Style Bot~ said...

OMG! This is amazing! Very inspiring. I recently said that I wanted to start training to run a marathon. I keep telling myself "make it happen, Cap'N"! Thanks for the inspiration and motivation! =o)

happy new year!! these are all great goals for 2012.

Alicia@ Mommy Delicious said...

This is a GREAT vision board! I've never done one before, but I am thinking of doing something like it soon. I always collect quotes, but putting them in one central place may be beneficial.

I love the one that says, "someone busier than you is running right now."

Janelle B. said...

What an awesome idea!!!! I think I am going to create a vision board. I have never done one before but I think if I make one and look at it frequently it will remind me to keep on going. Thanks for sharing.

A Single Mothers Journey said...

I said I would create a vision board but never got around to it. I haven't even worked on goals. I know I need to do better but I've been relaxing which is what I really need. I hope you had a wonderful time over the holidays and happy new year to you!

Sophia Chang said...

Oooh, I've made a kind of vision board (you're right it's hard to find photos in magazines that fit) but I never thought of an online one.

And here's my question to you that I hope you'll answer on your blog or somewhere - You have over 500 followers, and you're one of the best commenters and supporters of otehr blogs. How do you find the time to visit everyone?

★☆AdamAlexMommy☆★ said...

i so would love to create a vision board... but then i would have to do it when the kids are sleeping, otherwise they'll think it's a crafts activity for them... lol. i love your area of vision for 2012... and my fave is the finance part because this year, i vow not to go crazy with shopping! it just put me in my place. :) thanks for that. :)

hope your first two days of this new year is going great for you also. :)

have a great rest of the week!

Vanisha @ Vanisha's Life In...Australia said...

I love vision boards, I used to do them a lot a few years ago but now I don't really have much space. But blogs and bloggers are great that way - that continuously motivate and inspire, just like you do Mrs. Pancakes.

Amanda-Nicole said...

Happy New Year!!! and I've never done a vision board but I have something worked out for this new year!

Vanessa@Luxuria said...

Just found you lovely blog all the way from Spain via The Alternative Wife. This post really resonated with me as I have just started my vision board (just started collecting all my images). Still not sure whether to do one HUGE VB or a different board for every area of my life. Love your blog xx

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Happy new year, sweetie! Good luck meeting your goals! They sound like fabulous ones to me :) xoxo

Ashley said...

Awesome! I wish you & yours a wonderful New Year. These are realistic goals to accomplish.
