Veterans with a Vision for Their Life

by Wanda Hobbs, LPC

I have been privileged to work with a group of female veterans every week for almost two years.  During the last quarter of 2016 we focused our discussions on goal planning and developing a vision for each of their lives that they could refer to regularly for motivation and inspiration, and revise as needed, both now and in the future. This was accomplished by having each veteran choose pictures and words from magazines and assemble them on a large piece of poster board.  The outcome was simply beautiful and gave each person specific things to focus on doing to accomplish their individual goals as they make plans for their future. Some expressed a desire to earn a Bachelor’s degree from a university, some are seeking full-time employment, one having already received training to become a pharmacy technician, others will return to the careers they had in the military, such as Logistics.  The ladies also put on their vision board a vision for their families, relationships, traveling, decorating their very own apartment space with colorful, eclectic, items, and maybe even adding a pet.  This project was very satisfying to the women and a joy for me to observe as well.
