It is a goal of mine to “dream” every day. Hopefully this blog will help me to D.R.E.A.M. 🙂 It’s a little goofy, I know, that I came up with this acronym to remind myself how I want to live my life. But to me, it reminds me I want to Design, Rediscover, Enjoy, Art, and Meditate.
I want to design every day. All this means is to think creatively to come up with new ideas for things. Of course I love to design things, that’s why I got a degree in architecture! But sometimes I get tired of “designing” bathrooms for my job every day, so I have to look at it positively and see if I can come up with more ways to design! Such as moving my furniture around in my living room, or coming up with a creative way to organize my desk. I love do it yourself projects, so hopefully I’ll be motivated to share some of those with you 🙂
I want to rediscover the simple things in life every day. I think sometimes we all get in bla moods and don’t see the simple things or we are too busy to notice special things that maybe we should try to see more often. You know, that silly cliche saying, stop and smell the roses! 🙂 I enjoy being a busy person, but sometimes I need to rediscover the simplicity of joy.
I want to enjoy life. I feel like so often we just go through our days with so many things to complain about that I don’t take time to find joy in the day.
I also feel Art is an important part of who I am and what I find joy in, so it is my goal to do and create art more often. Hopefully I’ll paint and draw and make things that I can show on here and then it is my goal to eventually get some of the good stuff on Etsy and see how it goes. I love sharing my art with people. I don’t have very many of my creations around because I always give them away as gifts…:) you know who you are… ha
Meditation is the last letter from the word, mostly because I needed something with an m… 🙂 but also because I desire deeper and more thought provoking times in my life. Maybe meditation on my life and how God is working in my life is the way to do this. 🙂
