I have file folders, loose pages, journals, scattered bits of paper with inspirational scribbles on them floating all around in a chaotic manner from my office to my studio and some unusual points in between. This became very evident with the studio redo. Up until then, I had thought I was doing a reasonably good job of keeping it all contained in a file folder. Not!
Enter the notebook.....
The fuzzy stuff is a reminder to make/keep life fun, light, colorful and to enjoy the slightly chaotic, creative life I am building.
I am building, creating, growing and visualizing the life I want and that's what this book is all about. In the lower block it says Begin, Now, Today. Simply put, it's a reminder to get off my backside and start living. Today!
The clock face is to remind me that time is passing whether I'm enjoying it or not! I can't save it, but I can surely waste it. I really don't want to wake up one day and think "Wait! Stop! I didn't get to do (fill in the blank) and now I'm too old, sick, feeble, (fill in the blank)!"
I have the quote written down (somewhere) "Imagine what can be rather than see what is." I forget to imagine sometimes (gasp!). Maybe because I busy trying to live consciously in the moment. Or maybe because I get caught up in the business of "being busyness." Imagination is another exotic spice that makes life exciting! It's what dreams are made of and it has been key to creating the life I want!
More in the next post!
