Since I started with lululemon over 2-years ago, I’ve written, and re-written, and began again and again…this vision for my life. They inform the goals that I set for myself, and give me reason to reflect and ask myself ‘is what I am doing today, supporting this beautiful snap-shot of a day 10-years from now?’
The answers are uncomfortable, and awesome. Jarring and easy. When you move into this realm of creating, expect to ride some waves.
What I know for sure is from my very first vision to this mornings, there are themes that are always there: ocean. partnership. family. freedom. natural elements (brick, wood, light). ownership and art.
November 18th, 2013…with no restrictions of my life, this is what I see.
My 10-year vision:
In 10-years I am 42 years old, living on the coast in a beautiful old home. It’s a sweet Sunday Morning wrapped up in bed with my beautiful family. Our boys jump right into the middle, in their superhero PJ’s with the feet, messy hair, and giant-sized smiles. In loud, excited voices, they tell us of the dreams they had last night.
My super handsome husband, with his kind eyes, sexy beard : ) and gentle spirit pretends to be asleep, until our kiddos drag him right out to bed, chanting pancakes! pancakes! Their feet and 8-paws hit the hardwood floor, and they’re off…I close my eyes, and think about how much I love the sound of Sunday morning with my family.
I roll out of bed and walk barefoot down the hall to a simple, beautiful room filled with natural light, where I write, meditate, yoga, and develop my pictures. I wrap a blanket loosely over my shoulders and meditate to begin my day.
We gather for breakfast at our old farm style table, that my hubs and I built together, it’s solid and beautiful with so much history, this table, is just like us. We cruise on down to the ocean after, surfboards stacked on our old jeep, I’m teaching our youngest kiddo how to surf.
When we get home, I’ll ride my bike down to the studio, and hang for a bit, always inspired and humbled by our thriving pipeline of classes, trainings, international retreats, and local outreach. We are about to break ground across the street at a place I’ve dreamed of creating since I was 15, It’s called home. It’s organic coffee, wine, local art on the walls, live music, brick, wood, and natural light.
On Sunday night our best friends come over with their kids, we sit outside around the bonfire: flannel, mason jars with red wine, chuck taylors, music, white lights up overhead, and the soft sounds of people that absolutely love and care for each other. I am surrounded by extraordinary people, game changers, fellow entrepreneurs who see the world for what it is: giant sized and full of opportunity to do good.
10 years ago, I had a major shift, and I truly started living into the question of ‘how do I want my life to feel?’ and sought to create the answers. My life feels complete, purposeful, free, full of LOVE and so authentic. Being a momma and a partner are the center of my world, and thriving here lifts me to thrive everywhere else. I am a powerful yet gentle force, I am remarkable in all that I commit to, I am just beginning. I am always just beginning.
