Got a Dream board?

dreamboard 2014

Have you ever created a dream or vision board?  I created one in college, but that was about it.  Until this past weekend.  And I am left with the question… why do I not create one of these EVERY year?  They are a fun and creative way to get you thinking about the year ahead.

There are no rules to creating a dream board.  I have seen some extremely artistic boards with original drawings and pictures.  I am not quite that talented (yet!) so my art comes from cutting up magazines and strategically placing them on the board.  It works!  I am also a woman of words.  Words motivate me even more than pictures do I think.  So, I definitely put key words on my vision board.

Let’s dig in a little…

The left side of my dream board is geared towards my personal life, while the right side is geared more towards Simple Delights.  Here are a few key dreams:

  • Personal: get yoga back into my life, dance in a musical or other performance, travel regularly (on my list for 2014: St. Lucia, Hawaii, & Colorado for sure), save more money (hopefully at least $500 per month this year), and focus attention on love, family, and the little things.
  • Simple Delights: grow Simple Delights into a must-read blog, get published in a magazine, improve my social media presence, add nutrition counseling to services offered through Simple Delights, provide motivation and inspiration to others through Simple Delights.

So there you have it.. my dream board.  I will keep it placed in my office all year-round and then hopefully make a new one next January.

Here’s to a good year!


  • I have a mini dream board by my mirror. I like having a little reminder in the morning when I’m doing my make-up. Only drawback is that it is on display for all to see…Builders included when we renovated 🙂

      Love it! Well, perhaps you inspired the builders to set a goal too.. 😉

  • I love the idea of putting together a dream board. I usually just write down all my goals but I think a visual would be much more motivating for sure 🙂 thanks for sharing your goals! I wrote my goals down last year but I should definitely put them somewhere I can see them everyday.

    I’m really glad I found your blog – I’m passionate about healthy living too. I noticed you were a member of the Southwest Blogger Society- it’s great to connect!
