On a full Moon Friday, I envisioned the weekend ahead of us as easy as possible. I have made some good decisions and I went into a flow. No expectations. No musts. No projects. No shopping. No to-do lists. And so I did it.
It is such a beautiful weekend behind us and I’m both charged and tired from all that I have gotten. I’ve spent Saturday morning in a little village in the middle of the woods just across the hill in my town. I’ve invited myself to see the garden of my flower friend that I have met on the market and you’re just gonna have to wait for another post to see what I saw.
Then I had a massage and a pedicure at home, talking about #myluxuriouslife, a little bit of rest and gardening before I prepared Jamie’s style meatballs with tomato sauce and pasta, which is so not usual for me but I LOVED stepping out of my routine.
Being busy doesn’t take you places
And Sunday, oh, my, dear friends, I haven’t had such a beautiful Sunday in a long time. And it has nothing to do with exciting! This might sound strange to some of you, but with time I have come to conclusion that if I don’t do something ALL the time, it’s a waste of time. And now, when I’m much older and wiser, ta daa, I see THAT as a waste of time – always keeping busy. You know what I’m saying? Because, being busy all the time only gets you further from what you need to do. If you don’t agree, leave a comment and we’ll chat. I love that.
Furthermore, we went for a bicycle ride around the forest, had an ice cream and a short guided tour around the forest park that is next to our house and it was just what was needed to make us all giggly and happy. Can you imagine? Doing nothing. Who would have thought about it.
Creating new habits
And this easiness felt so amazing that we both agreed this should be our new routine, our new habit and we should invite more of this in our
So last night I sat down, with candle light and crystals, jazz music from behind and some coloured drawing pads and pens. And I draw some outlines for my projects and ideas and steps on how to make it happen, and I reminded myself of how I wish my life to look like.
And this is what I came up with. This is what matters to me the most, and this is what I am inviting into my home, into my life, into my heart.
How I envision my future
So, listen up. THIS is exactly how I paint the blank canvas of my life. I put notes on a blank piece of paper and I write down how I want my future to look like, how I want my life to be. I start with this: What is important to me in this life?
I take care of myself for I am my top priority. If I wasn’t here, non of this would matter. I am the begining of all and self-care is crucial.
I spend time with my family for this is where I grow my roots that keep me standing firm and tall. My family is my bridge over the wild rivers and raising myself to be an example for our growing child is my greatest accomplishment.
I garden so I can provide at least some food that I grew myself together with my toddler whom I am teaching what food is, where does it come from and what it does to us. It is teaching us compassion, patience, consistency, love and so much more. I garden so I can ground myself to the Earth and feel my roots keeping my body firmly to the ground so my soul can wonder in the higher realms with ease and without fear of falling down.
I garden so I remind myself every day to choose only the best food possible for me and my family. It makes me choose food that is non-GMO, that was not treated with pesticides and poison that would do harm to my body and bring more dis balance into this vessel, into my being, into my life. Gardening is powerful.
I meditate so I can find my centre when things get tough. I meditate so I never forget who I am and to always remember where I’m going. Meditation is powerful.
I journal so I don’t create stories in my head that don’t serve me. Fears, doubts, thoughts, insights, realisations, decisions, intentions, visions. I write them down either not to make them stronger if they don’t serve my highest good or to make them come true. I write them down so I can focus and outline what I wish to attract more of. I write to express the depths of my soul and to
I take time to read books to expand my knowledge. There are so many extraordinary mentors from whom I can learn.
I do yoga so I help my body support me while I create the life I have envisioned. I stretch and strengthen my body so energy can move more easily and create a solid background for all that I mentioned above.
I play, I laugh, I dance, I make love. And I never forget how important these are.
I walk every week. I bicycle every week. I take short trips exploring the surroundings of this beautiful country I live in to help me change perspective.
What you think becomes who you are
So, no matter the work I do every day, both business and household, the lines above must be a part of my day to day life in order for me to have abundance, wealthy, healthy and balanced life.
I’m decreasing my working hours only to increase my income. I know this sounds crazy to a lot of you, and it probably would to me as well 5 or 7 years ago, but it doesn’t now. Just to make it clear – I’m not there yet, but I’m definitely heading up.
And while I write this in my notebooks, my journal, my calendar, I remind myself every day what is important to me. While I write this down, I share it, I think of it, I say it out loud, I live by it every day doing small steps, and THIS becomes my reality.
And this is how you do it my, dear one. Every day, small steps, one foot in front of the other, never loosing out of sight your dream. This is how you manifest, this is how you become. You imagine, you write it down, you enter the space you have created, you live it – and it’s manifested.
It was always here, to be honest, waiting for you to dream big.
So, do you dare to dream big? Let me know down in the comments.
My blessings to you, friend.
