last saturday i had the please of meeting Claire & Saskia, the autors of the gorgeous crochet book "Haken en kleur". Kim from Echtstudio asked me to create a canvas especially for them. and i LOVED doing that. the ladies loved it. Kim loved it. we can all mary now :)
today is a perfect day to start living your dream. and how true is that?
do you think that someday, when you are older, or when you have that parttime job, or maybe when the youngest goes to school, you'll have the time to start living that dream of yours? yeah.
i had that thought too. and you know what? it doesn't work that way. sorry. nope. no can do. you really have to work towards your dream every single day. the fact is, there's never a perfect day. a perfect moment. a perfect time.
there will be always "stuff" that needs your attention. that needs to be done first, before you can start living that gorgeous dream of yours.
so. TODAY is the perfect day to start living your dream. like. right now.
no more excuses. no more procrastinating till that one perfect day. it's just gonna have to be right now sweets. really.
and every day you start little steps towards that dream of yours, everyday you will come closer. promise.
don't expect it to happen overnight. that's like crazy. nobody's dream happens overnight. we all need to work our asses of for this. but if that dream is coming closer and closer by, that's the most freaking awesome feeling in the world. well. except for having your babies in your arms for the first time. nothing beats that. not even chocolate.
so. talking about dreams. i'm moving in on my closer by the minute actually. i've set some goals, wishes, dreams. and it looks like 2014 is going to be pretty amazing. in 2013 we had a rough start (remember our sweet Ruben and his broken leg?). ugh. and i promised myself, i'm not going crazy over this. i have time. Ruben needs to get healthy and all my energy will go to him. and so we did, and it worked out dang good. but 2014, oh 2014 your butt is mine!
on the agenda today: working on one big badass huge canvas of 1x1 meter. intimidating? yes. marvelous? even more! and it's coming to life now i've put some paint & oil pastel fun on it. working on more plans for 2014. as soon as i can share more of my new plans for 2014, i will let you birdies know. i promise. it's all fun, and i seriously can't wait to let you in on it. okay. a bit: workshops, anyone?!
life is good. today is perfect.
