The coffee is percolating, and I am thinking about how much I am dreading the next few months when winter has it’s icy cold grip on the area I live in, and I have to slip, slide, and shudder my way through the days.
Me no likie.
If I were perfectly honest with you, myself, and everyone in my life, I’d admit that I want to live in a tropical environment. Well, I HAVE admitted that I want to live in a warm, sunny place next to the ocean, where I can comb the beach every morning or after school with my children while working out the details of my next blog post in my mind.
The depressing part is that it just. ain’t. happening. in the near future. You see, we live in a pretty fab location, theoretically speaking. My kids are settled and have friends. My son’s first grade class has 15 students – the entire school has 50 kids attending. My daughter has 2 and a half years to go until she finishes her school, where she is finally comfy, settled, and has a great network of friends. We have a house that is nice, even if it is a bit too small for us right now. We have universal health care and good public transportation. My husband’s job is good. To leave would be foolish.
But my soul – MY SOUL – is screaming GET ME TO THE BEACH! Find a house in California or Florida or Spain or Cyprus or SOMEWHERE where there is sunshine, seashells, and the smell of the ocean on a daily basis. My soul says that is what I need to thrive.
My heart and head say I need to be around people who speak English more often so that I can build a business – around as in interacting in a general social way on a regular basis – not just once in a great while or when we visit the States every year.
So what do I do? That is the $64 million question. I’ve gotta do something. I’m dying here.
For the time being, I fill my online vision board with pictures of the beach. I plan our summer trip to Greece (SQUEEEEEE) and keep my fingers crossed for a beach getaway to Cyprus in spring. I fantasize about building my business to a point where I can afford to buy an apartment in a sunny locale so that I can escape the cold from time to time – or even to afford to vacation in the sun and warmth a few times a year.
I also visualize myself getting to the point where I can afford a nice apartment or home in Vienna, so that I can have a social life and network. That move probably won’t happen for a few years, but it never hurt a girl to dream.
And dream I do. Big time. Dreams that make others scoff and give me that, “Oh, really?” look.
YUP. Totally. I
think I can manifest my dreams. In fact, I am sure I can make it happen for myself. These are my dreams, and I know the power of owning them, accepting them, and allowing them to manifest in my life. When I need to work toward them, I will. When I need to step back and accept what comes to me in the form it does, I will.
So what are my dreams? I’ll share them with you.
An apartment in a warm and sunny location, near the beach, where I can escape to a few times during the winter. If I were completely honest with you, I’d fill you in on the fact that my fantasy apartment or home is quite luxurious – in a great location, modern design, all the bells and whistles. (Maybe I can find something to rent…)
A home or apartment in Vienna. I want to be in walking distance from a yoga studio and a health food store. I want to have a garden and convenient shopping. Honestly, I want this place to be Jungenstil architecture with parquet floors, with an office and a sauna and a modern kitchen and close to a great place to hike and play – and plenty of room for my family and our stuff.
Focus so that I can serve the people who need to work with me. Right now, I feel so scattered and all over the place – but totally in love with all of the things I do. I love crystals, tarot, angels, coaching, energy, talking to people, blogging, helping, creating, dreaming, symbols and even business strategy and building and helping people create their OWN businesses and passion driven lives – but I don’t know how to best combine all of this or if I want to combine it or what. Sigh. This is why I am getting some coaching for myself.
A housecleaner. Yes. Abso-freaking-lutely I want a housecleaner who comes in like once a week to do the bathrooms and windows and ironing and mirrors and all of that bleh stuff that I just don’t want to do.
A rich social life full of fabulous women and men who are totally tuned in, interesting, insightful, intelligent, thoughtful, and inspiring. I want to have deep conversations. I want to connect.
Body love. I want to move regularly, feed myself like a Goddess and have a body that looks and feels healthy, beautiful, vital.
I want to be able to want it ALL and then some without being judged (internally or externally) for having big, monumental dreams and desires. I want a multiple six figure income (at the very least). I want travel and speaking engagements and audiences. I want book deals and interviews and influence. I want to be a bestselling author. I want to be well known.
I want to be able to generously contribute to causes that move my heart and soul. I want to support better lives for people I know and people I don’t know.
I want to be financially independent. This is a BIG one to me. I want to contribute to our family’s welfare and I want to have enough money to make decisions in our life. I don’t want to rely or depend on anyone for my well-being. I know my hubby is a wonderful provider and I appreciate him and his contribution – I just need to have my own, too.
There’s a LOT more on that list – and I think it is time to get started on creating the reality that I have dreamed up for myself. I am getting aligned with that vibration, and have absolute faith that I can make these things happen and I will make these things happen.
