“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ―
I am a dream machine. I generate dreams daily. I live to imagine. But the time has come for a new chapter. From dreaming to doing. This is the summer of inviting ordinary.
I am embracing all of the tools and lessons of the past fifteen years or so and generating a new reality for myself. I’ve done plenty of starting but not enough finishing.
Too often we wait for the signs. Occasionally we justify delays by busyness. Sometimes we use age, socioeconomic status, or gender as a defense. But I refuse to live in a world of extraordinary fantasy. I submit and surrender to the overwhelming beauty of ordinary. This month marks the start of sending my letters. It’s a fika-themed summer and I’m doing all the things I’ve always dreamed of. Stay tuned!
