but first – isn’t this photo fun?  i am taking vivienne mcmaster’s e-course about self-portraits: you are your own muse.  i am going to share more photos and stories from that soon.  i am so enjoying going out for photo walks and experimenting with new ways of photographing myself.

so last week we looked at what happens when we dress up as our dream.

using what we learned there, this week we’re going to look at what kinds of changes we can make in our day-to-day lives that will help us to dress up as our dream every day.

when you dress up as something every day, you start to become it.

does the you who lives your dreams dress differently than you do?  does she have different hobbies?  does she walk differently?  does she have different friends?  is her house neater?

what can you be doing *right now* that will bring you closer to her?

    Hi Andrea.. I blogged about one of my big dreams yesterday!!! http://alifeunrehearsed2.blogspot.com/2010/11/i-have-dream.html

    The part that makes my dream seem intangible somedays is the financial part of it. For me, the money isn’t there, but yet, I hv all these big ideas and wishes and dreams.. it’s the money part that seems to drag me down some days. I wish I cud just blink and hv the resources I need to make it happen…. hugs xooxox

    that is really beautiful bonnierose and i can see you doing it! and i will come visit :)

    breakthroughs can happen when we change our perspectives. you are already doing and as that continues you can create a new perspective about money and resources. i do believe you have all the resources you need to make this happen. we are not able to conceive of a dream unless we are also able, on some level, to make it happen. within the seed of the dream is the mechanism for it’s fulfillment.

    I am loving this dressing up as our dream assignment and am so glad I have another week for it. I’m working on a blog post (in my head ;) ) and think I’m going to wait until next week to put it up. What I discovered, yesterday during a meditation outside, is that I want to dress like the Earth…if that makes sense…and of all the elements and fabrics that have come to represent me (wool, wood…like my violin and the trees, satin…like my old ballet slippers…etc). All things that exude warmth and earthiness to me. It made me smile. I also had an experience when getting into the elevator on a rainy day last week. I saw my reflection when the doors closed…and I was wearing my wool, tartan scarf, cargo pants tucked into my wellies, rain jacket with my hair pulled back and I laughed because that’s how I dress when I’m in Scotland. So I was dressed as my dream!!!

    supercool lee ann! that you are dressed as your dream already (yah!) and that you have such clarity on how you want to dress. i love the way you describe all the rich fabrics.

    i want to dress differently now that i am at a different stage in my dream but i also want to wear clothing that i made so it’s a bit of a slow process :) but it’s good that it’s slow too because i’m getting really clear on what kinds of things i want to make/wear.

  5. Lee Ann Monat on November 8, 2010 at 7:25 am

    I think slow is good too! I also realized that a lot of the clothing in my closet represented the old me…and instead of re-purposing those items, I just wanted to get rid of them. So I took advantage of some coupon codes and ordered a few new items. I felt a little guilty spending the money…what with still having outstanding debt and Christmas coming up…but I feel really good about shedding the old and embracing whatever style has been wanting to come out! I’m even knitting a new sweater that’s very different from what I’ve made in the past!

  6. andrea on November 8, 2010 at 7:50 am

    yes slow is good! it is interesting how, as we grow, our tastes can change so much. i’m also planning to get a hair cut – i just don’t feel like long hair is me anymore.
    maybe you can turn your old clothes into christmas gifts? lol

    I dressed up in my dream hat to go down in town under the rain, it made the rain delicious.
    As I can’t always go teaching with this hat I decided to were funky socks, two differents, that not all pupils could notice. It made me feel great.

    As far as letting dream come into my life… I really have to adapt to my sickness and not exhaust me by having hight goals that I can’t take, or too many goals. It’s sometime really really hard to just survive so I learn to meditate and wait till days are better. After all, even is 5 days a month are awful, I have to go through and live another month…

    So my dream is to help people with chronic illnesses and make mental sickness be recognized as normal at my scale, so I help people around me for the time being.
