So today is a day of decisive action.
My plans for building my Vardo took another step forward when I decided to cut costs and move out of my apartment into a shared work-space with some new friends. The intention is to locate a house with a yard (where the Vardo will live while it’s being built) and where all of us can share in the task of running a healthy, positive home that inspires all of our go-getter dreams.
I look forward to sharing food, planting a garden, continuing on my path towards eating even healthier (I’m toying with vegetarianism) but most of all, I can’t wait to see what happens to life when one goes in with a plan. Too many of my living situations have been the product of necessity, having to move vs choosing to do so.
I feel lucky to have possibly found a pair of people who were ready for just the same productive environment. I meet with them both on Monday to see if we mesh well on a personality level, and then go from there. I will say that it sounds already to be a right mix as we’re all ambitious dreamers who intend to make things happen. It will be nice to see what they bring to the table, as well as set the wheels in motion. In the back of my head I see a house full of windows and light filtering in, art in every room and conversations over tea in large wicker chairs. Don’t ask me why the wicker, it just exists that way in my head.
Meanwhile, I am busy squaring tasks away. I resolved to take part in healing my family this evening, which is an ongoing part of my recent life. I woke up and made myself eat a breakfast of fruit, which doesn’t really feel like eating anything, and I will try very hard not to find some fat in the pantry. <3
The place that calls me loudest when I’m trying hardest not to listen, and when I’m in the mood for listening just smiles. I suppose the only answer to that right now is “Somewhere else.”
