We have renovated and updated our gallery and studio space, but that is not the end. It is only the beginning. Our actions over these past few months are the foundation for our big dream. We had to make changes in order to be prepared for our next evolution.
Evolution means gradual changes of progression; small steps or changes that allow forward motion. I had a friend share a great quote with me – Organize your life around your dreams and watch them come true – which is exactly what we are doing. We know where we want to go and make daily choices to support those dreams. In order to do that you have to first know what you want, then be willing to say yes and no to support what you want.
Our goal in the next two years is to build a barn which will serve as a multipurpose facility. It will serve as gallery and classroom space, open studio options and a peaceful, creative place for people of all art interests to enjoy. We give ourselves two years so we can design, build, and finish the space to best serve our future clients and learners. We want to bring art and creativity to all sorts of different people in a tangible way. To do that we had to get give our current spaces a revamp.
Thinking big is fun, doing big is even better. Being able to see what you want and being willing to work hard to make it happen raises the bar for everyone around you. Something magical happens when people see your work pay off; it encourages them to work hard and enjoy the fruit of their own labors.
I encourage you to dream big today. Dream so big that it scares you and the only way your dream will get accomplished is if you don’t do it by yourself. The dream is only the beginning, but don’t let that scare you off…dreaming will transform your life if you let it.
