wide open for dreaming BIG

My Mondo Beyondo list (here’s just a few from my big list).
* Write a craft book – get it published.
* Get my art into local shops.
* Someday have my own craft store.
* Teach art/sewing to people of all ages.
* Surround myself with a good tribe of women who appreciate, support and love who I am.
* Get some vegetarian friends (I don’t have any here).
* Get a babysitter so that my husband & I can have some alone time every once in a while.
* Get my home the way I’ve imagine for so long ~ creatively beautiful.
* Host monthly craft nights.
* Do yoga and meditation more regularly.
* Meet many of my long time blogging friends.

I have to admit that this list gave me some major anxiety.  I don’t think I was the only one that felt this way either. I think my problem was feeling like there would be some kind of time-line attached to this big list of dreams.  That I would fail. Not be perfect.  Be laughed at for having such big dreams. So, when the time came to write this list, I couldn’t do it. I sat on the “idea” for many days.  Then finally I gathered some courage, sat with pen and paper in hand and I just let loose for ten whole minutes. And guess what?  It wasn’t as bad or as hard as I thought it would be.  In fact, my dreams flowed without effort…ALL 35 of them!  I was so surprised by many of the things I had written down.

There is so much I want to say about Mondo Beyondo.  I don’t even know where to begin.   I know that of all the e-courses I’ve taken, it by far had the most impact on me.  Five weeks, almost on a daily basis, there it was waiting for me. Mountains of heart, mind and soul boosting support, wisdom, and food for thought.  I started feeling that Andrea’s and Jen’s words and ideas were moving me towards something big when I began to feel uncomfortable and stretched. In a good way though.  Sometimes my heart would pound and tears formed in my eyes. Change is difficult but important for growth. Letting go of certain things and gathering new ways of thinking. That kind of growth, the kind that they are encouraging, supporting and gently guiding you through, it’s big stuff. Life altering stuff, if you choose to follow, learn and grow.

I am often surrounded by people who no longer love what they are doing, have no desire to change and feel stuck.  I’ve known long ago that I don’t want that for myself.  My dreams have always been much bigger than me. In my face, daring me to follow.  Mondo Beyondo taught me that it’s okay to have big dreams. It’s okay to follow. Will you follow?

    As I was reading your list I was thinking to myself, “well she’s done this, and this one…and this one”…and then I realized this was an old list and all of these had in fact, come true.
    And then I felt a spark/shiver and let me tell you my dear friend, I have no doubt, NO DOUBT big things are in store for you.

  2. andie says:

    Stupid no edit button, lol…ok I know ALL of these haven’t happened yet but I still think you are so close to many of them, that they will very soon.

  3. Judy says:

    Thanks for this inspiring post. I’m going now to check out Mondo Beyondo.

  4. Amanda says:

    It is scary to write down your list of dreams and very brave of you to put it “out there”. I am sure now you have a written list, you will find it easier to “follow”. Good luck and have faith in yourself.

  5. Linda says:

    Well I can’t wait to meet in person and we can craft together! I’ve found once you set your intentions, they just start to happen. That’s the magic. Trust the Universe to support you!

    You shouldn’t have any trouble getting your art in craft shops. I wish I had a drawing talent so I could fill paper with such prettiness from colored pencils. Your finished products are just loaded with gorgeous! Keep it up!

    You are an inspiration to me sister. I love you so much!

  8. Hi Regina. Your list is great. Your description of the course is great too. I was wondering if this class would truly be helpful in the way that don’t we all know our dreams deep down? So thanks for saying it is way more then that. Best of luck!

    What an inspirational post – I can’t wait to see your list come true! ;D

    Go for it. Our dreams amaze us when they are the real. You have amazing ability. I would love to meet you in the day to day. Oh, and I’m a vegetarian, 🙂

  11. wow, big stuff Regina, very exciting to read. I love reading people’s dreams (and yours are not outrageous by any means!) but have trouble sharing my own. What if I can’t achieve them? But I’m learning to grow past that.

  12. Michelle says:

    You are an amazing artist, Regina. You dream it, you do it, you live it.

  13. “Surround myself with a good tribe of women who appreciate, support and love who I am.”

    AMEN Sistah! AMEN!!
