I can't believe that this day is finally here.
Today, I'm packing my bags and headed to Los Angeles, before hopping in a car tomorrow for Palm Springs.
If you're not sure what I'm talking about right now, let me get you up to speed. Just one month short of a year ago, I visited Kelly and Chelsea in LA, for the day. We went to the flower market and a really yummy lunch, talked about biz stuff/ gave each other our support, and then as the day was winding down, we somehow got on the subject of a crazy idea I had swirling in my head...
In that one day with the two of them, I felt so inspired. Ready to take on the world. Solve any issues I was having. Make big things happen. So what if we expanded on that, and created a working retreat to inspire some of our blog buddies (and ourselves) to tackle things we've been wanting to do but haven't had the time or man power to actual complete, take time to learn from each other, brainstorm with each other, and recharge our batteries.
At the time, it seemed like a pretty lofty dream.
I mean, it sounded fun, but realistically, how in the world would we make it happen? At the time we weren't really sure, if I'm being 100% honest. BUT a week or two later, the three of us jumped on a call and started hashing things out. One meeting lead to another and another, and before we knew it, we had organized the event of our dreams, brought on an amazing sponsor (thanks Bing), and sent out invites.
So, now flash forward to today, and that 'thing' that we've been planning for the last eleven months, the one that seemed CRAZY big and almost unachievable on that first day, is actually here.
We did it. And you know something...The hardest part was getting started. Once we started scheduling regular meetings, the ideas flowed, action plans were set, tasks were delegated, etc. It was a lot of work, but it was fun, and not nearly as scary or intimidating as it seemed initially.
So, maybe the next time you dream up a crazy idea, you should pretend it's not so crazy at all. In fact, it might just be downright awesome. So, you should just get started and see where it takes you.
Have a crazy dream to share? I'd love to hear about it in the comments section below.
