On Dreaming Big, Guest Post by Carmen Torbus
May 24th, 2011
For quite some time now, I’ve referred to myself as a Bliss Follower, Big Dreamer, Mess Maker and lover of the words, “I’m so inspired right now!” So naturally, a blog like Creative Every Day and an artist like Leah would certainly draw me in.
When my big dream of writing a book began to take shape, I knew I had to ask Leah to be a part of it. I was absolutely elated when she said she would contribute!
Putting a little check-mark next to “write a book” on my Mondo Beyondo Big Dream List is a pretty surreal feeling. I love Leah’s theme of “Big” this month and when she asked me to do a guest post, I knew I wanted to write about dreams. It’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to share my Big Dreams, so I took a bit of a stroll through old blog posts and pulled out my journals to see where I’ve come on my list.
It as almost a year ago that I shared my Big 3 and so much has changed since then, but what’s really cool is that although my circumstances have changed, the heart of my goals has not... talk about reassuring!
My Big 3 last summer:
1. Develop and launch an empowering & inspiring, self-discovery, powerhouse course/seminar/extravaganza for creative dreamers.
2. Create a coaching/consulting/conspiring program for creative women and begin taking clients that are ready to get fired up & take action to rock their creative lives.
3. Start speaking to audiences of creative women. The cheerleader in me gets all giddy at the thought of getting a crowd of creative women fired up!
Oh my gosh, I still get all kinds of excited just thinking about these dreams. Now that I'm working full time outside the home, instead of reaching for these goals individually, I want to combine the three and make them into one mega-big dream... an extra-messy, super-inspiring, blissed-out, art making, personal discovery workshop. That one is a whopper.... scares the pants of me just thinking about it.
My Big 3 now:
1.The workshop above.
3. And again. (to infinity!)
What are your big dreams? What are you passionate about? What gets you out of bed in the morning and tucks you in at night? What makes your heart sing? Dream Big - over and over and over again!
xo & belief in all things you,
