Hello! How are you? Do you remember a while ago when I talked about Mom’s in Biz? Yup! Today I am back at it again…
(snowshoeing with my sister)
It was so awesome to hear so many of your dreams. I think it is SO important to never stop dreaming. And it DOESN’T have to be business related. I have a bazillion dreams right now and it really comes down to prioritizing those dreams. Being realistic and choosing one or two to focus on at a time does not make you a failure! Can anyone say, human?? There is a negative connotation to the word “dreamer”. But that is TOTALLY unnecessary. As long as your dreams are written down somewhere and you have something that you are taking action on RIGHT NOW then it is all good!
For instance.. a few of my dreams are to raise pigs and cows along with our chickens (and kids! haha) And to double the size of our garden. And to plant an apple orchard. But I am forcing myself to be very realistic with what I want to accomplish first. Maybe these “homesteading” dreams won’t happen for another 5 or 10 years and I am totally ok with that. Because I have a bunch of other dreams that are taking priority at this point in my life… but I can still pour over my farming and gardening magazines and appreciate what will ‘someday’ be. And it is all good because I am giving myself permission to learn, and grow, and be a mom and wife and friend, and not try to ‘do and be’ everything…. even though I really want to!! hehe….
To me dreaming means that you have hope for the future. You have a positive attitude (don’t let those Debbie Downer’s get you down!!) And most of all it means you have self accountability and belief that you CAN and WILL create the life that you want to live. Can you tell that this is something I’m really passionate about? I am neck deep in dreams right now… and much is thanks to the Hello Soul Hello Business class I am taking.
When I started my business I really didn’t have a dream or a vision. I just had a burning desire to create and keep it real… being home with my babies and living my simple lil Country life. But then this crazy thing started happening. Actual real live people started showing up. YOU showed up and encouraged me! You read my meager blog.. maybe even bought something. Shared your ideas, your hearts, your friendly caring selves with me. Two words. HOLY COW.
And then, GASP! You said I inspired you. Motivated you. Cheered you. I’m sure I’ve turned off a lot of people in the process but it’s all good. I am just thankful for YOU. For YOU taking the time to read this NOW. So now my dreams and visions are really inspired by you. Because my life HAS been changed since I started this journey. And I wouldn’t change a thing. Even the times I screwed up. It’s all good. It’s just me… being my usual imperfect self.
OK, sorry this has turned into quite the rant! Didn’t really intend that, LOL. I know you’re all busy but I really wrote this cause I want to hear from you. I want to hear (again) what your (biggest) dream is (right now). And then tell me ONE ACTIONABLE STEP you think you could take to start accomplishing. Or if you don’t know where to start I would love it if someone else would jump in with an idea.
Cause face it, I need motivation too.
ok, that is all for today. Love you guys.
p.s. I finally got the handmade frames in the shop!
And more colors of shelves and coat racks.. that is if you call gray a color- I do!!
