Building a Dream

Building a Dream: My Cafe

I apologize for the delay in this new blog post. I usually try to post once a week, but now with many more meal service clients I don't always have the time to work in the kitchen to come up with brand new recipes. I am so very grateful for my abundance though! I am so thrilled to be so very busy cooking and preparing meals for clients. It brings me great joy! 

I wanted to share with you this very special project that I am working on. It is a long term project, a dream of mine that is taking shape, day by day. Dreams come in visions, baby steps, emails, phone calls, vision boards, trial and error, connections, conversations, meditations & more. 

Today I took the day to outline my dream in great detail and also make a vision board about it. 

Here are a few details that are important to my vision. I outlined many thing in my notebook today, but these points are the most powerful that I want to share with you. My "why" for this cafe is not about the food, baked goods or coffee, it is about community. 

Community & Inclusion: 

When I thought about what community and inclusion, these things came to mind: 

What community means to me is that we truly listen to each other without judgement to find common ground. We are all connected on Earth in ways that are amazing to imagine. All of the choices that we make are important and make a difference. I believe that if we can truly get to know those around us we can see that we ALL have some things in common as human beings: 

-to be seen

-to be heard

-to matter

-to find happiness

-to know our value

-to understand our special gifts

-to leave a legacy

-to experience joy

-to give back

These are things that we all feel in our lives. What does community and inclusion mean to you? I'll be writing several posts on this topic and hopefully sprinkle in some recipes as well. 

I wish you joy today,
