I’m working on being fearless, asking for what I want and not allowing fear to stop me from getting my needs met. It sounds so simple in theory, but trust me this is really hard work. To be truly fearless you must first be confidence in who you are and what you have to offer. Which means being at the ready to muffle the cries of those green gremlins when they come sneaking up on you. Trusting in the unforeseen and truly believing that everything will wind up working out. It’s totally a tall order, but I’ve made up my mind, and I’m choosing growing (even with all of it’s challenges) over fear!
So, what is it that I really want out of my life and work? I mean,Truly and Deeply! None of this politically correct BS that can sometimes gets spewed because I don’t want to be perceived as being too ambitious, aggressive, or superficial. Cause the truth is, that I am ambitious and I do want to be successful. I want to make a long career out of creating and making art, and I want to live comfortably and debt-free. AND I want to have enough of the green stuff left over to buy some of the nice things that I fawn over, without worrying about zeroing out my bank account.
I thought, perhaps one of my first step to becoming fearless would be to open-up and share with you some of my enormously BIG dreams!! A little scary but, I need to be brave and “put it out there” in order for my dreams and ambitions to feel real. So, that I can start to put my full energy towards making them happen, and so that I can openly invite in the opportunities that I want.
So this is it. These are my dreams and ambitions. Some are spiritual. Some are creative. And some are monetary and sometime materialistic.
☸ I dream of being seen and heard, of being noticed and valued for the work that I do and create. I want to spread my creative seed and leave something behind in this world, that will carry on way beyond my lifetime.
☸ I dream of my work being recognizable and EVERYWHERE! (But not in the same way a crazed fad hits the scene like a hasty hurricane.) I want my work to seep into people everyday lives and become a part of the atmosphere and environment.
☸ I long to see my work out in the world in a BIG way, but at the same time I also want it to be intimate and visceral. I have visions of it appearing on walls and on the sides of buildings, in books, and on beautiful objects that people can hold, carry, and interact with on a daily basis.
☸ I want to have “that” amazing house and live “that’ amazing life. Where time is on my side and I can do all of the things that I love while someone else takes care of the things I don’t enjoy and aren’t very good at.
☸ I want to live in a spacious pre-fab house that is filled with books and amazing furniture. That has a roll-up door that opens to a living garden, with a stellar view and a hammock positioned in just the right spot to watch the sunset. I dream of a home that is warm & modern, comfy-cozy, organized and clean, all at the same time. A beautiful space that reflects who I am and rejuvenates my soul.
☸ I want to surround myself in an open and accepting environment with other loving and creative souls. Surrounded by people that are there for me in both the joyous and challenging time. That tell me the truth even if it’s hard to say and that encourage, share and fosters my creativity.
☸ I dream of being inspired and creating all day long in an existence where the well never runs dry or at least refill quickly.
☸ And I dream of having all the help I need to make it happen. I envision having a team of employees working for and with me, in my amazing studio space, that has plenty of room to make a mess and has natural light flowing thru every window. Of having a cleaning service that shows up at my house on a daily basics to do ALL of the chores that normally eat up my time and drain me. So that I am free to do the things that matter most.
☸ I want to have the time to travel and experience the world. To be open and exposed, experience new things and to feel and really SEE!
☸ I dream of a beautiful life where I can afford to have the things I want as well as the things I need.
☸ To live the life creative!!
What are your enormously BIG dreams?
