Little by little

Up to Week 7 in Life Book...only 7 weeks behind the class! Oh well, I'm having a blast so that's all that counts. This lesson was called "Little by Little" and was taught by Connie Hozvicka with Dirty Footprints Studio.

It was a great lesson about creating a home for your dreams. Our instructions were to create a house and fill the back of the house with all of our dreams. Here's the kicker...then we threw the house away! What? Well, Connie's philosophy is that sometimes we hold on to our dreams so tight that they actually get in the way of achieving them.  What she suggests is clearly stating your dreams and then letting them go. Connie feels that this way we have the space to enjoy and appreciate the little achievements along the way.

What do you think of this idea? Any thoughts? Anyone else want to give it a try?

I agree with Connie, to an extent. When we hold on to the old, familiar dreams, it can keep us from appreciating all the things we have in our lives, and keep us from making new dreams. Life is about change and evolving, so I guess dreams should be, too. On the other hand, I don't want to throw out ALL my dreams, because then I might not ever accomplish any of them!
