I need to constantly remind myself that I'm doing ok. I need to constantly remind myself, I'm right where I'm supposed to be. I'm not failing, I'm not a loser, I'm not behind the curve.... I'm moving forward.
I found this post, from WAY back in the day. 5 glorious years ago. What I like about blogging and journaling, is that it keeps me focused on where I was at and where I want to be going. It reminds me that I've stayed true to my vision and my purpose for a long time.... I've stayed authentic. That's really important to me. I'm not swaying my business or my beliefs or my ethics and values to fit what's popular and trendy now. I've always known exactly what I want and I have stayed true to myself- despite not getting there quickly. And you know what? A few of these goals and wishes have actually come true- just a gentle reminder from the universe that if you throw it out there, you can truly manifest your destiny.
This post is a reminder to myself to never give up. Keep on keepin' on.
Please dear God, help make my dreams a reality. I pray that you help manifest my destiny and help me acheive all these wild and crazy dreams/ambitions that I have. I have no idea how I’m going to acheive these goals, but I do know that I have the endurance, motivation and determination to make these things happen. I will stop at NOTHING to make my vision a reality. I won’t let anyone or anything deter me or get in my way. This is MY LIFE and if I don’t make this happen, no ones going to do it for me- that’s for sure.
I pray that you introduce me to the right people, help me recognize opportunity as it arrises and help me seize each opportunity and chase my dreams like a man with his hair on fire.
Have you ever wanted something so badly that it’s all you can think about, all you focus on and all you want to do with your extra time?
I pray dear God that Organicopia becomes a household name. How do I make that happen? What does that look like for me?
Well, first of all- I want to make this world a better place. I want to be a helper, not a detriment to this planet. I want to help wake people up, re-inspire people to live off the land as much as possible and to CARE about what we’re eating and putting into our bodies. I want to help heal the planet, my gift to this world is cooking. I know how to cook, it’s what I’m good at and it’s what I love to do. I can feed people, I can feed the hungry, I can offer people jobs.
Dear God, Please help me lead by example. Please help me acheive my goals and dreams and thank you for all the many many blessings you’ve given me. I love that when I wake up in the morning, I’m excited for living. Life is about having fun and I am having a ball making my dreams a reality.
Just incase you need a reminder, here are just a few of the things I have on my wishlist. I’m sure you have something much greater planned for me, but I enjoy just putting it out there. You never know what could happen. If I don’t try, I could spend the rest of my life wondering “what if?”
By 2012, I want to be traveling with my clientel. I want to cook on yahts, airplanes and travel to different countries.
I want to create an empire with catering, private cheffing, an organicopia clothing line (made in CA and sold in CA only), stickers, grocery bags and my own brand of salad dressing and cookware.
TV !!!! I want to be on TV!!!!! The opportunity is there- seize it!!! Don’t ask me why being on TV would make me feel like I’ve accomplished something, but I feel like it would. I definately never want to fee like I’ve ARRIVED, but I do imagine that being on TV would be a HUGE accomplishment for me, since I’ve been dreaming about it and talking about it since I was 10. I’d like a regular spot on a local news channel, doing cooking demo’s, my own show, interviewing people who are making the world a better place THROUGH FOOD. Maybe I could even work with my brother on Food Foward, I’d be thrilled to do that.
I want to write cookbooks.
And I’d love to have a huge garden/orchard that I grow all my own food out of. I could open up Organicopia cafe’s across the santa cruz mountains.
Lastly, once I become a household name in 2015, I’d like a show much like Martha Stewarts show- but different. I want to be the next domestic goddess 🙂
God, if you can make these dreams a reality, please call help!!!! I’ve only got 4 years left to get this show on the road and time is a tickin’.
