On Sunday, I was invited to attend a Vision Board conference hosted by Empowered Visions in Kitchener, Ontario.  I have to say that the experience was wonderful as it was held at the Hacienda Sarria.

While Spanish in style, Hacienda Sarria has a very local feel. Many aspects of the building, like commissioned art, ironwork, stone masonry and wooden doors, have been hand-crafted by local artists and crafts people. Local trades’ people and retail vendors have helped to shape this ambitious vision into the stunning creation it is today.

This quaint and very comfortable atmosphere allowed for a very peaceful but empowering experience.

A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on specific life goals. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images or text that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life.

Marietta Snetsinger was our host at the event.  She explained that her own vision boards has assisted in creating a focused vision on what she wants to achieve in her life.  Miraculously (and with lots of hard work), gone are the days of being a full-time employee in the corporate world as she now is a successful entrepreneur whose phone doesn’t stop ringing.    Her next goal is to launch Empowered Visions on a higher level.


I love how Marietta shared her passionate belief that the vision boards being front and center in her surroundings on a daily basis aided her in keeping that vision of being self-employed.

So, for myself, up goes the skinny Trina teenager pics on my vision board, along with a sailboat, and drinking with Gaga at the Grammy Awards!  Seriously, I did create a board that I’m rather proud of at this time in my life.  Let me explain it to you.

My vision board is based on self-confidence and freedom from the norm.  I’m not a normal person as I’m rather unique in mind in spirit.

  • My picture in front of red is said to bring prosperity
  • I always like to believe the best is yet to come so I put it under my photo.
  • I want to rid myself of the anchor that holds me down.
  • I wrote a letter to myself detailing that I wanted to live life, my way, without restrictions or prejudice.
  • “I want to be the first me and not the next somebody else” (my favorite new statement when people want me to be something I’m not)
  • I want to create a miracle for my life.  I want the dream I had and it will take miracles and hard work for it to happen. With that, I need to find my artistic side.
  • When I die, I want to say that I’ve lived my best life!
All of this DOES include my sub-wishes that consists of going to the 2012 Juno Awards….and then perhaps drinking with Lady Gaga at the Grammy Awards.  Cheers to your vision!  What are they?
