It Happened to Me! How My Vision Board Came True

Vision boards help us create a future that we desire. Here’s my story on how my vision board came true.

The first time I created a vision board I didn’t even know that I was creating a vision board. Huh? Yeah. Let me explain.

It was 2006. I sat at my desk at EHTP – a nonprofit organization where I worked as an education coordinator – watching elementary school students color on construction paper. At the time, I didn’t know that I wanted to be a writer. I was always a writer; I had been journaling since 12 years old and began writing poetry at 17. But I didn’t think I could or would be here, running a full-fledged relationship website. All I knew is that I wanted to draw. But just in that moment. I borrowed some colored pencils from the arts and crafts table and began my own masterpiece.

I put colored pencil to paper and began to doodle. I drew a desk. A clear, glass vase with a lily. A wall and a picture frame and the husband, children (a boy and a girl) and wife (me) that belonged in said frame. I added another frame with a diploma. A Masters of Arts in Writing. It was my diploma. One that I had yet to earn but was thinking about pursuing.

I returned to the desk with the vase and added a book. It was my book. It had no title. I didn’t know which stories would fill the pages, but I knew I wanted to publish a book some day.

I came to and stared at the picture that I had drawn, and realized what it represented – the hopes and dreams that I had for my career, my heart, and my life.

This was my very first vision board. All done in a daze without any awareness that writing things down, drawing images, and envisioning our future has power.
Now, it is 2014. I am the owner and Editor-in-Chief of this thriving online community. I published a book. I have a Masters of Arts in Writing. I have a wonderful man by my side. The kids will come later. We’ve already discussed it.

My vision board came true. It really did happen to me.

So, I am working on another. It’s been sitting in my imagination for over a year. This time my home office will be full of staff writers. The room will be painted fuchsia with black and white accent walls. There will be a clear, glass vase on my desk. A yellow sunflower will sit in it. And love, success and creativity will be in abundance.

Today I realized that I am almost there. I received exciting news from Archipelago, the web and analytics company that manages He said that this community – my baby that came to be unexpectedly – has tripled in numbers. From page views to unique visitors, is thriving.

I won’t bore you with the logistic, but I will say that this new vision board will come true. It really will happen to me. Again.
