It was a little over 2 weeks ago that I saw the sun peek over this shop in Manteo in a way that was brilliant and blinding, comforting and exhilarating as one might expect when you are about to embark on an adventure that you are not quite sure what will unfold around any corner, or in this case, sand dune.Jean Skipper) manifest organically and purposefully at the same time while we head to a show, a gallery, a shop, or some other magical destination like the Outer Banks. Quite different than business meetings in board room as once held in my former life as a bank manager.
And then we get out and take a break from our discussion and hike along the beach, take a moment at a rest stop, or grab a bite to eat and carry on our talk about the future, the directions we are heading, where we need to tighten up the process, and what may need letting go. I like the breaks along the beach as we took on our way to Ocracoke Island. In the midst of talking about our dreams, we took the opportunity to actually appreciate the fact we were already living one of them, in this very moment.
It was an aha moment.
One that you had to get out of the car, slow down, maybe even miss the first ferry in order to see.
The life I'm living right now isn't one of plenty in material things anymore. It really never was when I was working in the bank either. But it's a more soulful existence. One that I know I'm reaching more people over a larger expanse of the world by doing, one that I'm reaching deeper into myself with every day that I'm blessed with waking to, and to keep it going, it's obvious...I just need to keep dreaming. And doing. And then dreaming some more, then wake up to realize that the moment I have been waiting for is right here in front of my eyes.
What's your big audacious dream?
Is it something you can live even in a small way today? Or at least do something today to walk yourself towards it tomorrow?
What's Behind You?
Is it time to face your fears?
Join me in an exercise that not only teaches you some basics about face painting in black and white, we play with releasing the inner critic by putting it behind you then both metaphorically and literally frame ourselves with positive affirmations to guide us into the future.
