When was the last time you did something for the first time? How about the last time you
participated in an activity that not only broadened your perspective, but also gave you a boost of motivation?
So often we get caught up in work, school and other obligations that we fail to shine light on our more creative, social side. We tend to put our dreams on the back-burner, allowing them to get so far buried that it is hard to dig back up. Parents, especially, get overwhelmed in the day-to-day routine in attempt to keep the home balanced that they abandon their avocations.
We, here at Be Your Own You challenge you to get out a sheet a paper immediately after you read this blog and simply make a list of all the things that you want to do, places you would like to go and adventures that you have not yet had the chance to experience. After you pinpoint these activities, lets begin to brainstorm what steps would need to be taken in order to move forward in making these dreams A REALITY.
Lets begin visualizing our dreams. It is time to create a Vision Board!
This can be a family event that not only can be viewed as leisure within itself, it will also
provide each and every person participating a better view on their future endeavors and how to attain them. Mom and Dad, you can do it right along with your children. Teaching kids how to set goals and getting them to learn the importance of goal-setting can be a very beneficial tool to help them throughout life.
Creating Vision Boards - turning goal-setting into a fun, visual activity!
There are many perks from incorporating leisure time into your day - to - day routine. Leisure gives you an opportunity to examine personal values and to focus on what is important to you.

Please comment below with your goals and aspirations! What is the FIRST three things you will be including onto your Vision Board?
It's okay to have insecurities...It's just the way you deal with them that really matters. We ALL have parts of ourselves that we are insecure about...but it is this combination of "imperfections" that makes you YOU! And you are beautiful exactly the way you are, FLAWS AND ALL!!
When we hear a friend complain or talk about their insecurities what do we do? We pick them up and remind them how beautiful they are!... Well you need to remind yourself too how beautiful you are, inside and out! No one is perfect, but our imperfections ARE perfect... just the way they are!
