Why Single Moms Should Create A Dream Board
I was a single mom for a while, and I used to think dream boards were an activity used as a time filler for group social gatherings, something visual people needed to make and without one used as an excuse for to being ready to head out in to the big bold world. I’m petty crafty and enjoy my creative time, but I also meditate and focus – so why do I need a dream board?? I asked. I decided to listen to the prompting of the successful and gave it a try. Now, I’ve always dreamed of what I wanted and worked more or less toward it so this was just a way to ‘hone’ in on details. . I’m not saying it allowed me to see but what it did was allow me to see “it” every day. My thoughts were transformed so, I’m encouraging you to create a visual reminder of your goals, dreams, and heart’s desires that you will put in a place you will see every day and work toward over the next year. It truly changed my life, and I believe it will change yours. Here are a few of my favorite reasons why you should make a dream board as a single mom.
It will help you focus on your future. There is absolutely nothing more powerful than envisioning your future. Once you do it, your mind moves you toward your goal. If you have never studied manifesting, you should read Tony Robbins story of how he decided he’d never be poor again, he is telling us that he first dreamed of being rich and his actions followed. I’ve heard him talk about being hungry at Thanksgiving and knowing within himself he’d never allow himself to be there again. What happened? He got intentional, he began manifesting and dreaming. Did you know Tony also feeds people every year as a way to give back and help others who are where he once was because giving will change your life. There is so much power in setting your intention and focusing on your future. The question you need to ask yourself is “Are you listening?”
If successful people everywhere are telling you to create a dream board, create it!! If nothing else is gained, you will develop focus. And with laser focus comes goals. What do we do with goals? Around here, we crush em! Woo!
Knowing you have better coming somewhere down the line encourages you to try harder. When I update my dream boards, I am not only focused on making the dreams come true but I am encouraged to push for them EVERY SINGLE DAY when I see that board hanging on my wall day in and day out. So it is with you. W Create your dream board and let it inspire you to succeed.
It’s not magic, but it sure feels like it. Every day I write out my manifestations and I am continuously amazed that what I write down comes true. Some call it attraction. I call it living my dream. Did you know that in the Bible – if you look in the book of Habakkuk 2:2 it says, “Write the vision and make it plain so that she who reads it may run with it.” By simply creating the vision or writing it down, you help you implement it.
The trade-off to spending hours cutting and pasting, writing and envisioning is the focus, organization, and excitement this activity builds in you. At this point you may be wishing I would stop speaking the power of vision and dreaming, but I can’t because it’s a reality for me. So I ask you this, Have you lost your vision? Then create a dream board. Also, they are fun to make especially if you include your children so they can create theirs. Trust me, you will enjoy the soothing and creative side of planning your future and teaching this gift to your children.
There is nothing … and I mean nothing like knowing where you are going. You must set your intention. You might begin thinking, “Oh, I’ll just wing it!” NO! Set your intention!! Plan where you will focus your energy and tell life where you want to go. Soon you’ll look up and be there, so keep a gratitude journal to keep track of each thing you have seen become a reality.
It’s time to begin living YOUR dream! I can’t wait to see yours become a reality!!!
