I decided to keep my financial vision board simple. I started by going to magazines I had on hand and clipping out anything that spoke to me. I found statements on the bondage of debt and I clipped plenty of those, but in the end I left them off.
I used the road map approach, except it is more a bicycle trail. To me a bicycle symbolizes a journey of simplicity and freedom. Many years of my life it was my main mode of transportation and I grew to love riding my bike, in more recent years (since bearing children) it hasn’t treated me too well when I have tried to pop on and ride my bike, so at the moment it represents pain/debt.
My vision board map starts out at an elephant trying to balance on a ball. How often to you feel like you are an elephant doing great balancing act??? I know I have had my days.
My journey takes me and my family through a few twists and turns and wraps around a teacup (the story of the tea cup I will have to share on a later date!) and continues through some inspiring words and ends our journey with a reward of a special trip. At the moment I am not exactly sure where I am going to go on my journey, but I promised myself when I was traveling through Europe that I would bring my future husband back to Venice with me. It was such a beautiful, romantic city, so it is something to shoot for today.

May your journey be adventurous!
