Here I am

Welcome to my cozy new space! I've been dreaming about this place for some time now. Like a year - maybe longer.

Pardon the empty spaces - I'm in the process of moving in. But in the style of KonMar, I hope to keep things clean, connected, authentic, and honest. Because this is what my space is all about - truthsaying. My own truths, and how they connect to the rest of the world.

It seems pretty fitting that my launch-post for this new blog is a conversation about Mamascout's Dream Lab. Over the last two years I've been participating in all of Amy's labs. She offers these  amazing explorations into our inner worlds. Into ourselves. Into the stories we hold, we hear, we repeat. The Dream Lab was a stretch for me. For some reason, I equate 'dreamer' with 'entrepenuer.' I have no idea why. Maybe it's because most dreams I've heard over my lifetime have been focused on career and money - dream job; dream house; dream title; dream work. Those kinds of words aren't even the same language as my dream-speak.

No. This clearly wasn't for me. And prior to taking Amy's lab I even told her I wasn't Dream Lab material but, I really like Amy and think the moon rises and sets with her so I followed. And I am a different person because of it.

I am such a dreamer. I live in this sweet little feel-good bubble of kids and husband and homeschooling and freedom. I also live in reality, friends. Dinners need to get made. Kids puke. Laundry for six is ridiculous. Hormones - mine and others. Introvert-tendencies/extrovert-history. But I have great dreams. I have great intentions. And I have enormous ability to bring my dreams from my heart to my hands.

So - Amy's Dream Lab hasn't ever really ended for me. I live it every day. Every time I choose an interesting and non-mainstream read-aloud for my kids = Dream Lab. Every time I pull out my yoga mat and hit play for an hours practice = Dream Lab. Every time I say YES to an invitation to meet someone new (online friends turned arms-intertwined friends) = Dream Lab. Every time I meditate with my children, and talk about big complex things when they should really be going to sleep = Dream Lab.

I am breathing life into my dreams with every exhalation. I am living a more authentic life. I am closer to my personal Truth then I have ever been. And I am expanding from a place of love and delight every day.

Because - truthfully - my dream is to be vulnerable. To be all in. To show up.

What's yours? I dare you to explore with Amy and me this March.  


  1. Yes! Love this, and I'm sharing it so that everyone I know doesn't have to just take my word for it. Amy is changing lives!

    1. She's creating the space, Christine. The change really comes from within! It's such a beautiful collaboration!!

  2. So so so excited for your new place here! I will love sinking into your words. Hugs, Claudine

  3. I'm excited to watch the unfolding.(Sorry, KonMar, I have not yet mastered the folding).
