Things I've Learned Recently~

This blogpost starts a tradition. One year ago today I wrote about some things I had learned over the course of the year. That blogpost can be found here . So now it's time to take a hint from the 22 year old stuck in 2009 and bring forward something fresh, something oh-so-now!! :)

The problem is I don't know where to start.

The BIGGEST lesson I've learned this year is how quickly an intention, a thought, can transform your reality as long as it's in God's will for you. Here are some thoughts that became my world today (aka dreams come true)

I AM A BUSINESS WOMAN AFTER ALL
  • The dream: To start and grow my own business in Floral Design
    • Built an Etsy.com business
    • 2 sales as of today, without any $$ spent on advertising or marketing
I LOVE QUALITY FOOD AND SHARING IT WITH OTHERS
  • The dream: To eat healthy foods and have less impact on the environment
    • I now work at an organic, non-profit grocery store where I get all my food at a discount and help others achieve this lifestyle as well.
MOVING TO MONTANA WITH HIM WAS THE RIGHT CHOICE
  • The dream: To be with my man and build a life with him, no matter where it takes me
    • We're still together and growing our relationship!
    • We moved to Montana so that he could pursue his graduate studies and stay together. (this is proving to be the RIGHT choice.)
I WILL ALWAYS BE A JAZZ MUSICIAN
  • The dream: To keep singing jazz and meet other musicians
    • I make regular appearances at the Badlander where Tommy and the Front Street Jazz Ensemble play amazing stuff!
I AM A CHAMPION OF DEVELOPING GOOD IDEAS I CAN'T PURSUE
  • The dream: To be continually inspired by the world around me to create and thrive.
    • I wanted to start a business in natural hair care with 100% aloe vera as the base
    • I wanted to start a business selling the high quality bluestone found on my parent's property as a craft material. My younger siblings as my employees... my miners. :)
    • I wanted to start a business making kits for indoor gardens to hang on kitchen windows. (This idea has already taken off for someone else, more power to them)
    • A BILLION other things. But the ideas themselves are so entertaining to me, I get all the satisfaction I need in just daydreaming about them.
It's just been a great year. I need to keep working hard and pursuing whatever's within reach. I'm loving the journey.
