I just shared this photo on social media and I wanted to share it here too.
I turned 48 yesterday (had a really fantastic day which I wrote about here) and the thing I want most for my birthday is to make more art, write more, and share it more, and do it all from a deeper place.
This is kind of what I always want.
And it also always feels new because my creative dreams are always taking me to new places.
The reason why I wanted to send you this photo is my dress.
I do make all of my own clothes, I sewed and embrodered this shirt dress this winter.
This is the first in a new series of clothing I am making that are for the person that I am becoming next.
These clothes are a way of making space for this new version of me.
Space-Making has been on my mind a lot.
I created a new (very small and simple) program called Space-Making for people who want to join Dream Book and work with me but don't have the capacity for FULL ON MAKING IT HAPPEN right now.
Which, to be honest, is most of us these days.
Space-Making is this magical place of self care and restoration and healing - making space for the things you need and want, rather than Dream-Building which is the work of creating the path that leads to where you want to be.
I like to do both - Space-Making and Dream-Building.
But these days I definitely CANNOT Dream-Build if I don't Space-Make.
As stressful as it is to be alive on this planet right now, this is also a time of real potential for change.
We can create a better world.
I feel that more fully these days than I ever have before.
The intersection between creative dreams and activism feels lit up with possibility.
I wanted to leave you with a few journal prompts for the weekend.
How have your dreams changed over the last 2 years?
How have YOU changed?
How do you WANT to change next?
And think about joining me in Dream Book to give your dreams a boost.
I made a new welcome video on this page, explaining where we're at in the group right now.
As the world changes, we we change, as our dreams change, I keep making adjustments to make sure Dream Book remains a supportive growth-inducing space for everyone.
