Do you ever come across something, and it speaks SO loudly to you? So loud that you can't ignore it even for a second? It speaks so loud, from some deep down place, that you MUST have this in your life? You must pursue this dream, you cannot NOT have it?
Well, this happened to me two summers ago. I saw this post. And I knew, I just KNEW, I wanted this. And I dreamed about it. I waited for someone to create it. I hoped it would somehow find me.
And I waited... a whole year went by.
Then there was another post by the same group of lovely women. And the desire was louder, stronger... WAKE UP it said. You need this. But stop waiting, go, CREATE this!
What? Create it? Me? Well. Okay. I took a deep breathe and I put it out into the universe here.
And I dreamed some more, and I journaled about it, and I took a REALLY deep breathe and shared the idea with two friends. And they didn't tell me I was crazy. Imagine that. They said yes, go for it, and that they'd like to be part of it. Wow.
So I started planning, little by little, bits and pieces. And then got braver and put it out again into the world here.
But I was still scared. What if no one else wanted to come and play and be part of this dream? What if my inner critic pounced on me so hard that I was out for the count before I even began?
Those things didn't happen. Imagine that. Instead, my friends responded, their friends responded, and at one point I had more friends than space available... but things have a way of working out just right.
If you trust.
And let me tell you, trust was a huge part of this dream. HUGE!
So, from dream to reality. I have not quite landed back on Earth yet. It was a beautiful, surreal, magical weekend. I am truly blessed.
Thank you, to each of you, my Sisters, for such loveliness. Such wonderful, soul-filled Love and Connection.
So much love. So much gratitude.
Here's to believing in your dreams, being scared and moving towards them anyway.
Here's to trust. And to Love.
