I’ve been busy tonight, cutting and pasting and smiling and jamming out to the music. I’ve been working on my vision board, putting my dreams and goals out there in a visual, so I can see and remind myself daily that I want something more, and I can work towards it. Thought I’d share.
Check out my work space. And this is after I tidied up a bit. Oh, the craziness that is creativity. Love it!
But before I share the finished piece, take a look at this photo I took at work today. This is currently what I have to look at on my desk. Its perfect.
So, here’s what I’ve been up to tonight. I cut out pieces from magazines of things that inspire me and mean something to me and put them together in a collage, so I have something to reflect my dreams, all in one place, that I can see often. I know its hard to see what’s going on because everything is not very clear, but I swear I tried a million times and this was the clearest shot. The glare was terrible, and I moved it all over the house, with the same problem no matter where I went.
This is a sweet little reflection of many of my dreams. As you can see, I dream of simplicity, and beauty and peacefulness, surrounded in nature. I dream of escape. Quietness, and tuning out. I dream of health, and radiance, and sunshine… and reflection and being close to nature. I dream of playing and adventure, movement, and discovery. I want to have a place of peace. A place for reflection and gratitude.
The only thing its missing, is the love part. I couldn’t find a picture beautiful enough to describe the type of intensity and passion in a perfect partner.
I left a space… I know I’ll find something…
I was working through a workbook on success and reaching goals, and one of the exercises had us dream our most outrageous dream, one that seems almost impossible to achieve. After much reflection and lots of free flowing ideas on paper, my ultimate dream emerged. It had me giggle, because it was so simple, but also so far away, huge, but possible. It wasn’t the dream of huge mansions and tons of money with fancy cars and yachts. It was so much more than that.
I dream of a sanctuary. I want land, with untamed forest and wildness. I want to have the most beautiful gardens with fresh nurturing fruits and vegetables. flowers and bees and butterflies. Life. I want to have a place for people to come together and enjoy the gardens and share. I want to have different structures, to have courses in health, on how to nurture your body properly through food, and how to grow your own food. I want to have yoga and Thai chi classes and meditation groups. I want to have an animal sanctuary. for all the animals that have been abused and forgotten. I want a place where people and animals can just be. and have resect for one another, all life is precious. I want to share, with others, that there is so much more to gain through simplicity…
I have pages and pages of how I vision it all in my head.
I get carried away sometimes.
I’ll leave it at this, for now, I could go on forever… Hope that wasn’t weird…
Anyway, I still need to post on the new recipe I have. And I’m soooo tired! I actually got on here to share the recipe, but then, this all came out instead. Whoops. Oh well, I’ll post real quick. It’s a dish that everyone loves, and we are so due for a recipe. So, off to post number 2, real quick before I pass out sitting at my kitchen table.
Love you guys! Beauty beauty everywhere, huh?! How about this weather change? It’s almost snuggle weather. Good thing I have a fluffy furry little puppy to share some snuggles with.
