BLOGTOBERFEST - Day 29 - Yes You Can

You can make your dreams come true. I know that you can do it.

If you feel afraid, or overwhelmed, or a little unsure, don't fret. There's lots of help out there. Read The Artist Way to unblock, enroll in Mondo Beyondo to let your spirit soar, get yourself some Messages from the Universe to affirm you, do something that has been calling to you. You know what you need to do.

Since I re-started my creative journey in August 2006 so many things have changed in my life. The single thread that winds through all the change is dreaming that it could be so. Slow and timid to start, and building to a fabulous crescendo more recently. The thing that I've really learned in the last couple of months is not to limit my dreams. Not to decide that my small dreams can manifest but my big dreams aren't really for me. It's taken a long time to get here but I am starting to know in a real way that it's true. The deepest, truest things that you wish for yourself are also meant to be.

I have one other big leap of faith that I need to take sometime in the next couple of months. Not the last I'll ever take, but a critical one for the near future. I'll tell you about that some time. Not just yet.

The next thing I'm going to do though is join my friend Handmaiden on her new adventure. Sharon is taking her Crafty Business E-book and extending it into an online workshop. It sounds absolutely fantastic. Sharon is such an amazing woman. I adore her warmth and vibrancy, and admire her fabulous and pragmatic 'can-do' attitude. It was only 2 weeks ago that we talked about her taking Crafty Business to the next level, and now she's ready and raring to go with an online workshop and forum. I think her course will give me the practical encouragement and guidance I need right now to further build my creative business. The timing is perfect.

My goodness, BLOGTOBERFEST is almost over. No reminiscing yet. I'll save that for Saturday.

You know what tomorrow is? Friday Giveaway.


  1. Excellent post and congratulations on seeing the hard work of your hands bear fruit.

  2. Good for Handmaiden! And yay for another Blogtoberfest!

  3. phew, i came abck just in the nick of time! life got in the way.

  4. Hi Kathy, its great to get back online... Very hard not having the internet, probably take me a couple of weeks to get back into the blog world. Yes looking forward to the Daylesford Market should be a great weekend!!!

  5. great post and I agree - point yourself in a good direction and the universe does seem to bring good things often - well done you by the sounds of it...

  6. Ok that’s the last time I read a post by you that mentions the Artists Way with out digging my copy out. It is just what I need right now and short of hitting me over the head with it I don’t think I could be give a stronger signal that I need to act. I have been putting everything else ahead of my art and it’s time to make some time for my dreams. So as soon as I have posted this comment I am off to comment on your giveaway, as a pack of your Messages from the Universe would be a perfect accompaniment on my upcoming journey. Then the very next thing I will do is get out my Artist Way. Wish me luck, thanks for the inspiration. Good Luck and well done on your recent and future steps to living your dream.
