Here's to the Initial Feeling of Stepping into a Sauna

Here's to the initial feeling of stepping into a sauna ~ Jill Badonsky

I can't tell you the last time I got to sit in a sauna.  But this toast resonates with me because instead of thinking of stepping into a sauna, I love to visualize living my life in our dream house.

A couple of years ago, we found a rough floor plan of our dream home in a magazine while waiting at a doctor's appointment.  I tore the sheet from the magazine and we've had it hanging on our bulletins board ever since. My dad has even started working the blueprints and we have drawing of what it should look Ike that hangs above the mantel.

Visualizing your success at the end of your Dream journey is important.  So whether it's the materials things you might be able to realize at the end of your dream journey or the intangible rewards, visualize yourself reaching your goals and living the dream.

Be Patient With Yourself

When going through changes, be patient with yourself. Things usually take longer than we hope or plan, so when that happens just lighten up and trust the process ~ Jill Badonsky

It's been a crazy couple of months again. At the work job, I've launched five new clients within my group. Slowly but surely the novel is getting finished. I didn't participate in NaNoWriMo (again), but like I posted on Facebook, I'll get November figured out one year so I can.

And yes, every time I go to Safari on my iPad, I feel a bit guilty about not posting. And I feel a bit guilty for not getting up in the morning to work on A Place to Call Their Own. But I just have to be patient with myself and understand that this will take a bit longer than I really want.

So hang in there, on whatever dream journey you're working on. If you're in sales, the next couple of weeks should be a great time for your business. If you're in a more creative journey, do your best to balance the business of the season with driven to meet your goals.

Have a great week everyone!
