5 Ways to Set Up a Vision Board Party to Enhance Your Communication, Social and Personal Accomplishments

Even if you work on vision boards for and by yourself, running a vision board party for your small circle of family and friends is one way to take care of multiple goals at once. An intimate gathering for a vision board party will help you enhance your:

  1. Communication (because you will have to utilize communication before during and after the workshop),
  2. Social skills (because you will create stronger connections during the workshop); and
  3. Personal accomplishments (because the act of creating a vision board will help you with your goals).

Everyone can benefit from focusing on what they want out of life – focusing on their ideal lifestyle – so it’s quite possible that you’ll fill your room to capacity with family and friends.

All it takes is a little bit of planning and a spirit of adventure to enjoy a few days of fun with friends.

diary of a shy black woman series #001 – flashback

This is a new series.  A flashback series into an old blog I used to write. I’ve come a long way and am so glad I documented my experience back then.  Hope you enjoy and stay for the ride.  Hopefully my old readers find me on this new platform.  My experience is one that many of you are still experiencing and I hope you realize, by reading my story, that you’re not alone AND you’re still growing no matter how old you are – young or older. Don’t give up on you! I’m still a work in progress. I’m not 100% free of social anxiety and I’m not 100% “un-shy” and I’m okay with that BECAUSE what I am is a person that won’t let those factors get in the way of my dreams, my passions, my purpose…my life! And if I ever feel like they are becoming debilitating again, I’ll continue to challenge them.


start-diary-of-a-shy-black-woman-1My weekend started today. I spent my day off from work, cleaning and having a blast online, while the television kept me company in the background. If I were as social in real life as I am online then this would be the end of my blog. Unfortunately, I am what others call ‘painfully shy’. And I don’t use the word ‘painfully’ loosely. Since I can remember, I have always been shy and here I am in my 20’s…still as shy as I use to be and maybe even more so.
