It’s a new year. It’s the season of resolutions, planning, vision board crafting, and mastermind building.
This is the time everyone dares to dream. To forecast their futures. Yet what it also has been for so many of us, is a time to truly reflect on our purpose and our divine destiny. By now most of us have seen the magazine articles and heard tons of motivational speakers deliver their new year talk about “finding your true purpose” and “living out your passion.”
Well, for those who make it a practice to take time to journal and reflect, to meditate, listen to their voice and seek to create their true desires…things have become a lot clearer. Clarity is always a beautiful thing. It helps you distinguish your consciousness from your subconscious. It helps you identify the blocks in your life (lack of goals, relationships, habits, environment, etc.) But mostly it gives you an ability to recognize your power and connection to The Most High…The Creator. God.
It is such a liberating space. You feel yourself. Not in any ego-maniacal way, but in a self-assured and determined way.
The month of January is also National Mentoring Month, so this is a perfect opportunity for some intentional engaged mentoring! As you plan for your year ahead, I encourage you to share the experience with your daughters, nieces, and mentees. Help them to do some self-evaluation, to really dig deep and identify their true desires. Help them to see themselves. Not to mention, this is the best way for you to get to know them a lot better and listen.
Vision Boards can help girls:
- Develop Goals
- Evaluate personal choice/responsibility
- Encourage self-awareness
- Nurture a sense of hope/possibility
You just may re-new a girl’s love for herself and thereby save her life!
A little inspiration….
I always enjoy delivering Girls Like Me Project Inc. vision board workshops to girls. I’d love to serve your school or organization. I offer mommy/daughter or mentor/mentee vision board sessions. Book me and let’s transform a life! Or if you’d like, I will send you a vision board template to help you and your mentee create your own vision boards.
Work it out!
Dove has a great self-esteem tool kit. My favorite is the self-exploration workbook that helps them connect with role models and strengthen positive self-esteem.
Make this a memorable Mentoring Month. Please share your vision board experiences, or your fun ideas for mentoring month activities!
