When I decided to start this blog, one of my goals was to host ‘feel good’ events where women could come together to share their stories, have honest conversations and be inspired.
I hosted my first official event of the year on Saturday – A Vision Board Party, and it was exactly how I imagined it to be. If you know me, you’ll know that even though I love planning events, I tend to stress over the tiniest details 🤣 – shout out to friends who were there to listen to me and spur me on. 💕
The party was held at the Darlington Rugby Football Club, and 14 amazing women attended. We created our Vision boards and bonded over food, drinks and exciting conversations.
The afternoon started off with my good friend and owner of Olumo Foods, Bisi Lewis explaining what a Vision Board is.
A vision board is a collage of pictures, and/or affirmations of one’s dreams and goals, designed to serve as a source of motivation and inspiration.
The aim of a Vision Board is to make the Law of Attraction work for you – by creating a visual representation of your goals, you’re essentially speaking them into existence. Creating a Vision Board allows you to hold yourself accountable.
After Bisi spoke, we moved on to introductions – we all got to share one fun fact about ourselves, and it was such a good laugh. We had a lady who has successfully inseminated a cow and a mum who is saving up to buy her dream typewriter. The room was filled with women with diverse skill sets. Women who quit their corporate jobs to start businesses, women who manage businesses alongside their day jobs, women who are currently studying to complete their degrees, women who worked in Finance, Law and Engineering and our youngest guest, was a 4-year-old princess 🙂
The energy was electrifying, and a few things were echoed around the room which stood out:
- It is important to always have a supportive network
- Never stop learning – always find opportunities to improve yourself
- If you fail at something, take it as a learning moment
- Don’t stress over situations you have no control over
At the end of the afternoon, a few people were kind enough to share their Vision Boards, and it was amazing to see.
Some of the feedback I received after the event was terrific, and it made me realise how much I want to keep hosting events like these and creating more opportunity for women to motivate and inspire each other.
I want to say a special thank you to these amazing women for supporting me in different ways at this event – Amanda, Bisi and Kachi – thank you for being a part of my support network. I cannot wait to create more magic with you.
To the ladies who attended the event, thank you again. Remember 2020 is ready for your dreams, and I cannot wait to see you soar. 💫
