The Wishing Board is something that my husband and I have been doing since before we were married. I remember reading in a magazine that visualizing your goals helps you reach them faster. So I figured: what better way to do that than to actually look at a picture of your goal or wish every day? It helps you to stay focused on the big picture and not get distracted by the little temptations that come your way. At least, that has been our experience.
So I took an old cork board and gussied it up with some paint. The first few images we put up were of a bride and groom and a couple lounging on a beach. Once our wedding and beach honeymoon were over, my hubby took the pictures off and were preparing to throw them away since our wish had come true. But I had a better idea. I snagged a super cheap scrapbook from Hobby Lobby and taped the pictures inside. Then I wrote the date underneath. That way we could always go back and look at all of our finished goals and our wishes that came true and remember when we had reached them.

Not every wish can come true (ahem...my husband's motorcycle picture) but it never hurts to dream big, right? We love our Wishing Board and love having a common, family goal to strive towards together.
What pictures would you put on your Wishing Board?
