On Wednesday, Beaufort-Jasper-Hampton Comprehensive Health Services (BJHCHS) and Beaufort County First Steps hosted a Parent Group Connection focused on creating Vision Boards.
Barbara Ramos and Aujena Mungin from BHJCHS led this initiative with our Parents As Teachers families. Vision Boards are defined as a “collage of images and words to display in a prominent place to remind you why you do what you do every day.” They can be a reminder of values, goals, and dreams. Or they may simply include things that inspire you or leave you feeling happy.
Our parents quickly got to work, creatively organizing various magazine clippings, stickers, and more. Some of the themes and goals included bettering relationships with children/significant other, cultivating gratitude, starting a new business, staying positive, “real sleep”, exercising, and much more. By looking at these boards each morning and night, the hope is each of us will be that much closer to reaching our goals. The leaders also emphasized an important reminder to rely on our resources and reach out when help is needed!
