It's not the most professional piece of art I've ever taken in, but few artistic expressions have struck me to my core quite like my vision board. Each time I catch a glimpse of my board, it breathes life into what can feel like mundane days and weeks, and reminds me that my hopes and dreams for personal development and my dedication to motherhood don't have to be mutually exclusive. I can be an engaged and devoted mother who woodworks, kickboxes, and speaks Arabic. If every spare second I have doesn't go to my kids' needs, I haven't failed.
