I love this quote. I want to do this. I AM doing this.
This was one of the projects that kicked off my re-commitment to this blog one year ago.
I posted daily quotes on a telephone pole outside our home.
But more about this quote specifically: I have chosen my corner. It feels like home. I have put intentional thought and commitment into it everyday. I want to change the world little by little.
I want to shed a brighter light on the nurturing benefits of creating.
I want to inspire people to just start.
It feels so refreshing to have a corner that is so cozy and comfortable and made just for me (and those who want to come on along). The authenticity and sincerity I have practiced this year has been liberating. I am ready for MORE. Yes, more opportunities for authenticity and sincerity, please.
I am farther away from perfect than I have ever been, stepping out on a ledge where I have never dared to go before. I want to stay on this ledge and wait for the next opportunity to leap. Who feels compelled to stand out there with me?
Charles Eames was a brilliant creator. I think we all can agree on that. I feel as though he really stood by this quote and soaked it all up.
He did change the world.
Recently, I came across this image, his initial marriage proposal to Ray Kaiser.
This was eye opening for me. Charles Eames was just a regular guy. He even made spelling errors. He put himself out there, on his own ledge and leaned into his dreams.
Let's do THIS too.
By the way, I AM CELEBRATING one year (just in case you haven't heard...). To celebrate with me, check out this post for free give aways. Today is the last day to play!
