I have had such a busy week, organising, sorting, throwing out, putting things away in their new home...
This week I moved my studio.
It's a move I have been thinking about a long time now.
Something that I was always planning to do when we redid our kitchen + renovated our garage.
While we were away, we stayed with my brother + his family. And we love hanging out with these guys - they are so chilled, our kids play awesomely together (99% of the time!), their patch of paradise so peaceful, our conversations lively + I love sitting on their back deck + dreaming.
So sitting on the back deck, cold beer in hand, looking over their two acres of peace, I was thinking some of the dreams that we have been shelving.
To do one day.
And then I thought about all the huge dreams I have. The huge dreams we have. All these dreams that we put on hold because we don't have time. Don't have the money. Don't have the inclination.
And the startling thought I had was this:
There were parts of these dreams I had that I could do now. That I could begin right now. Things that aren't dependent on one day. On some day.
It was like I was electrocuted. Such a simple thought. One that has the potential to change everything.
So once we had a day to recover from the long drive home, I enlisted Mac + we moved the studio from downstairs to a sunny room upstairs.
I wish I had done it earlier.
I loved my room downstairs. Loved. It.
But there were always little things that made it difficult to work in.
As soon as my desk was put in my new room. I felt at home. I felt settled.

So I wonder if I am guilty of pushing my dreams to one day + some day, if you are doing the same. And I wonder if there are little things that you can do today to make those dreams just a little bit closer?
Feel free to share what steps you are going to take to move a step closer to your dreams next week below in the comments. I would love to hear what your planning!
And now I am off to measure steps. To make another of my one day dreams just one step closer...
