i couldn’t agree more with lisa at visionary mom that once we have formed an intention, the way to bring it to life is to dwell in it. simple as that- you live it, breathe it and talk about it, give it energy. so very law of attraction, i think! i love her idea so much about making a project out of your intention, that i am going to do it! so, with regard to the boaty liveaboard idea i posted the other day, i am going to do a weekly dwell-in-my-intention update on things, what i’ve been up to in research mode, and maybe even pepper it with some photos and candid thoughts on the whole boat scheme like,
“i wonder what baby kitty will think of living on a boat?” (isn’t she cute with all three afghans piled on her? she and quinn have a wonderful relationship of “doting” and “tolerating”. hehe.)
and “gosh wouldn’t it be awkward if my landlords were reading my blog?” and “thank goodness we love co-sleeping! that sure saves space!” and “we can eat crab for dinner every night if we want to.” you know, stuff like that.
let’s call it ~dwell~ and i will aim for thursdays, since today is one of those. if you’ve got similar intentional projects going on and want to do the same type of thing, please post a comment so we can all cheer each other on! for the record, right now my intention is to research this bad boy, and i will not judge myself harshly if this whole boat thing does not pan out- if that’s the case i will know it is for the best, that the choices i eventually make have been made in an intentional way and that i’ve done my work.
as for this past week, i’ve taken one research-oriented walking tour of the marina i have my eye on, and looked up and down piers C, D and E, for boats for sale- quite a few, not surprisingly, given the economy. nothing that caught my eye as “the” boat for us, but still a promising visit. it’s been soggy weather and walking hasn’t seemed appealing on my last few lunch breaks but i will start to make a habit of it on nice january days. ones that look like this:
~dwell~ is a project devoted to dwelling in my intentions- giving them energy and watching them take shape!
