dreaming and doing

dreaming and doing

Allowing myself the time to dream has brought a number of those dreams into fruition. The tricky part comes when you have to shift from the dreaming into the doing. One minute your head is in the clouds and the next minute you’re feet need to be on the ground. Really firmly planted, I might add. I suppose it doesn’t have to be an either/or proposition but sometimes it feels like it is.

So, as I have been trying to keep my feet on the ground, doing all that I’ve been dreaming, I’ve needed to occasionally spend some time looking up; reminding myself of the infinite possibility of the sky and how that’s where much of what I’m working on began.

I have choosen to live in the place where somehow these two worlds come together, this is true, but it doesn’t always mean it’s effortless. I’m finding it takes practice to integrate them. I’m working on it because I am pretty convinced it’s the best place to be and it’s a skill I will hopefully get to use my whole life.

Where is your head at these days? Are you in dreaming mode or doing mode? Or both? I would love to hear how you merge your two worlds.

    I love your photo! Just looking at it makes me feel like I'm outside feeling very serene.

    Unfortunately during the first week of the month I'm doing…working full time this week when I normally work part-time. I only say unfortunately because my creative side takes a back seat during this time.

    how is it that your words and images always seem like they have a direct line to the stuff going on in my own head?
    dream is my word for 2011. i'm really trying to give myself the freedom to do so. my doing isn't nearly as exciting as yours — but today the doing of being mommy to a sick kiddo had me putting everything else on hold.

    My head feels all over the place. I feel like there is so much I have to do concerning school and work that everything else takes a backseat. Anyway, I am slowly learning to integrate as best I can all sides of me. It really requires a lot of finessing and sometimes I have no idea what I am even reaching for. So, I feel like I've been forced in a doing mode but maybe it is time to take action. Life seems to know these things. Love the pictures and blog!

    Synchronicity. I have been living in and sometimes between two worlds for close to a decade. I live in Jamaica with my husband and children and simultaneously maintain a life and semi residence on the west coast, mainly California. It's not easy but it is what we are working towards a life that gently incorporates time in both worlds. I find that art and creativity are the only things that assuage my longing for the familiarity of home and my community in the states. The color here grounds and inspires me. Creating brings balance to my life. I think looking up at the sky to remember the limitlessness of our potential while keeping your feet firmly planted on the earth is wonderful advice. Gratitude and one love. 🙂

    I can so relate to this. I'd so much rather spend time in my dreamy head..than in this down-to-earth real life. A constant state of imbalance..and juggling the two to make it work. Nice to know that I'm not the only one.
