What is yet to be built…
“Be Mindful of where you put your attention. The shape of your life will follow.” (source: Body + Soul, May 2008, Terri Trespicio)
My photo is full of copper elbows and tees laying in the floor grit of a cabin ( or as we call cottages in the Upper Peninsula, camp) under reconstruction. The image drew me, and as I sat in my home studio studying the image I knew why. The drawers behind me and piles around me are full of supplies that go unused. I had intended to use the supplies, one day, to launch into a new adventure, a new career path, a creative way to support myself. But even though I had put my attention to gathering the supplies I had not put the next steps into play. I had yet to set clear intentions.
I love the book, “Write it Down, Make it Happen” by Henriette Anne Klauser. The book guides you thru setting your intentions giving real life examples of people who attracted exciting change. And where I consider the book a must read, I had followed the book and still stalled.
It comes down to the grit. The facing of your one true self and trusting your intentions and moving forward through that grit, or doubt. Take a step each day, no matter how small and just do it. Even if you are walking around in a dust cloud, that first step of the day will lead to the next.
What one simple action can you take today? Is it calling a friend, networking online, playing with your paints, designing your business card, maybe even baking that pumpkin bread and sharing it with a neighbor. Let me know what action you took by making a comment below. Give your dreams motion.
