Many of us have big dreams, but most of us won’t attain them. Why is that? I finally decided to take control of my life and make my dream a reality! So, you ask, how are you going to do that, Suzi? Easy - by MAKING it happen!
Forever it seems I have longed for my own little travel trailer - a space all my own that I could decorate to the hilt and spend all day inside making art. But then I got tired of dreaming about something that I had convinced myself would never happen. No more dreaming. I am going to be proactive from now on in making my dream a reality, and you can come along for the ride!
Step One: Define the dream
Wanting a “little travel trailer” was too obscure to really visualize. I wanted to see the actual trailer in my mind’s eye in order to manifest it in my life. What did I do? I went to an RV show! I got lots of literature, looked at hundreds of trailers, talked to lots of knowledgeable people, and picked the trailer of my dreams!
I found a dealership locally that sells it!
Step Two: Do your research; start making actual plans
I contacted the people I needed to, got actual measurements, found out how much money it would take to start the ball rolling, and started taking the necessary steps to get things done (new driver’s license, check out crowd funding options, etc). I then picked the exact location the trailer would sit. I also got miniatures to set up so I can visualize my dream while things are being done behind the scenes to make it all happen. I also started reading everything and anything I could get my hands on that would allow me to make informed decisions every step of the way.
Step Three: Start collecting necessary items to make the dream a reality.
I’ve been researching the types of things I want for my trailer for a long time, but now I’m going to actually make up my mind about them and start collecting them. I decided on the color palette I’m going to use to decorate, and am going to start buying the things I want. Once the trailer is delivered, I plan to get it camera ready right away!
One of my first purchases will be a little kitchen set from Huckleberry Vintage on Etsy.
Carol got a turquoise and red set for her kitchen, but mine will be mint green and pink. Check out all of their awesome shabby chic stuff! I want to support real artisans as much as I can as I collect and purchase the things I’ll need for my trailer. You notice I said “my” trailer. If you want something to come to fruition, the words you speak have to line up with that.
