Mindful Monday: Dream a Little Dream

Even the smallest goals are important in the big picture. 💚

A post shared by Brush Dance, Inc. (@brush_dance) on

Oh my goodness, I love to daydream. When I was a younger person, I dreamed of a happy marriage and having a child. I dreamed of a career with meaning, home ownership, and living a life where I didn’t have to worry about having enough money to get food on the table.  At some point, I also dreamed of being a singer, writer, an attorney, an astrologist, of living in San Francisco, and I dreamed of traveling the country in an RV.

The point is this: our dreams (big and small, realistic and fantastical) help shape the direction of our lives. Every time we dream, we expand the possibilities in our life.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Which of your daydreams do you keep visiting? First we dream, then our actions become aligned with those dreams, and then we’re living the dream. Of course, it’s not always as easy as 1-2-3, and it could take literally decades for some of those dreams to come to life.

Energy and persistence conquer all things. 

Benjamin Franklin

Having dreams, exploring the possibilities, and pondering the vast universe of promise is absolutely a joy in itself. The excitement of my husband, dog, and me criss-crossing the country in an RV, lingering in towns we love, visiting friends and family is a dream I’m not quite ready to replace with something else. I don’t know that I’ll ever do it – but I know that if I stop dreaming, I definitely won’t.

Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?

Alfred Lord Tennyson

Have your dreams become murky over the years? Did you have dreams and gave them up because . . . life happened? Maybe it’s time to get back in touch with those dreams. What would you like to do? What would you like to experience? Start simple and expand as far as your mind can travel.

Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.

Edgar Cayce

Lihit Lab – B5 Notebook Cover

My first experience with Lihit Lab was the B5 Notebook Cover (shown above and below). I loved it so much that I bought one for everyone at Brush Dance.

Here’s some of what I love about these covers:

Durability – made with Cordura canvas, this cover is made to last. After more than three years of daily use, mine (in navy blue) looks brand new.

Pockets! OMG with the pockets!

The large front velcro-type closed pocket is large and deep enough to hold a variety of items. Right now, I have a pencil, eraser, and ruler in mine and there’s still plennnnty of room for more.

The front also features two pen holder pockets.  These pockets are large enough to contain nearly any writing instrument.  There’s also a “slip-in” pocket on the front cover to hold a few sheets of folded paper – I keep bills that I need to pay in there.

Once inside, there are even more pockets.  On the inside front cover, there are three additional slip-in pockets. These are smaller than the one on the front and will easily accommodate planning stickers, credit cards, a few folded up dollar bills, or paper clips. And, finally, the inside back cover features a flap where I tuck important papers and larger sticker sheets.

Bookmarks – two satin ribbon bookmarks in different colors – so handy!

Room For It All – Right now, I have just one B5 Leuchtturm notebook in mine, but in the past, I’ve had two with no problem.  And here’s what I’m most excited about:

Our brand new Karma Planners fit perfectly into this Notebook Cover.  Karma Planners begin with weekly spreads starting in November 2017 – and I can’t wait!! I’m planning to start filling in important dates very soon.

The A5 Notebook Cover (shown above) has all of the same great features as the B5 shown above – just in a more compact size.  This one is compatible with the Leuchtturm A5 Notebooks that are so popular for bullet journaling.
