Hey Friends! Well, I completed the set that I was working on yesterday. I'm not quite ready to share the final photos but here's a little snap shot I got with my phone. :)
Today I just wanted to mention something I do to keep myself motivated and working when it's way too easy to quit and take the easy road. I love to surround myself with things that encourage me. . . with things that remind me of who I want to be. The wonderful thing about life is the fact that you get to decide what kind of person you want to be. Me? When I think of one word that I want to describe me, it's "Dreamer." And not a "dreamer" in the sense that I've got my head in the clouds, but a "Dreamer" who turns lofty thoughts into real goals.
In order to do that, I feel like I have to find ways to retain a laser focus, to keep my eyes on the prize so to speak. I do everything from watching inspirational movies, listening to motivating music, and surrounding myself with positive messages. Here's one way I've been doing that lately. . .
I found this little notebook at Target. As soon as I read it, I had to have it. I love that it not only says "She's a Dreamer" but also "a Doer! Many times we come up with these great ideas for our lives, but they stay just that- ideas. But I believe if I put my heart and my actions towards a God-inspired dream in my life, well then I believe that anything is possible. I love to have little promptings around the house that remind me of the person I want to be and the life I want to lead. Plus, I love the color combo! :)
Speaking of dreams, something very dreamy was just delivered to us! After months of waiting, I am so excited to put it in place! More photos to come!
PS- There were a couple of other notebook options at Target. One said something about "leaving a sparkle everywhere she goes." That sounds good too, but it didn't speak to me like the dreamer quote. But maybe it speaks to you! ;)
