Today, I have been looking back over the last year, reminiscing.
About a year ago, I made a decision that has changed my life. It all started with an inkling of disappointment. I had been writing posts for my blog and wishing so much to make more of my life as a Creative Spirit. I had dreams of where I wanted to go, but I wasn’t making it happen. It seemed I was at a stand still. I didn’t have many readers and had very few comments. It felt like I was spinning my wheels.
I was sitting at my computer one afternoon and asked out loud, “Am I really supposed to do this? If I am, I need help.” Moments later, I looked down to see an email from Kelly Rae Roberts about her e-course, Flying Lessons: Taking Flight. I laughed, feeling as if I had been heard and answered. After looking through the description, I took the leap. (…which really felt like a leap of faith. I had never taken an e-course.)
The course was so informative and more important than that initiated a transformation in me. The first couple of weeks, I felt really emotional: fearful of my big dreams and enamored with my big dreams all at the same time. But eventually, as the course went on, I felt empowered by my big dreams and moved into a place of being a champion for them.
Hey, Big Dream! What? You want to build a community where Creatives can get jazzed about their potential, where they can discover their own big dreams, and share their awesome creativity?! I am your go-to-girl!
A short time into the course, I started getting to know the other members of the class. I felt lucky to be in the Facebook group with them. Together, we were the Borge from Star Trek, one amazing force with the promise of connecting with the world in a dynamic way. If one of us had a question, several others jumped in to answer or point out the way. We began collaborating nearly immediately. We bonded quickly and deeply.
Not long after the class, I decided to do my business full-time. It has been slow to start, but I don’t mind the struggle….much. (*wink*) But as the anniversary approaches, I realized I am starting to see some of my BIGGEST dreams come to light. I am checking items of the bucket list in my head and watching as the Universe puts opportunities in front of me that I just had no idea I would love so much. I feel like I am plugged into the flow.
So the Calendar Girl in me has been feeling nostalgic for the anniversary of those first days in Flying Lessons. What an amazing year! What a beautiful ride! What a lovely (and I mean that in the truest sense of the word) circle of women I found in the course! And what a delight-full gathering of Creatives that are beginning to connect here at the Home of the Creativity Tribe.
My heart is SO…VERY….FULL.
