So in my haste yesterday I forgot to include the link to the rest of the post from the flax seed crackers. I've added the rest of the steps and you can find the full recipe here.
Are you living the dream?
always tomorrow for dreams to come true” just came swimming into my
head. Thought for sure it was a Disney movie with a lovely princess but
actually its from “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” – Christmas anyone??
pondering dreams a lot lately, not the sleepy time kind, but dreams we
hold in our heart. Things we’ve held on to for a long time (hello size 6
jeans hanging in my closet) and things we’ve haven’t let go of yet.
sister and I have been toiling for the past 13 years on our dream. To
be fair, it was off the side of our desk for the first 9 years, we
attended weekly farmers markets and kept our full time jobs. It was
fun, it was exciting but it wasn’t our full time job.
years ago, we decided to sink or swim, jump right in and make it
happen. We left our lovely jobs and started working full time on Two
Blooms. We didn’t really have a plan, we knew we had a good product but
we didn’t have a business background.
we relied on our brilliant sense of humour (“oh, you wanted a receipt?
Oh, sorry I’ll email it to you when I get back”.) And we continued
with our amazing customer service. We bent over backwards for everyone
making customer scents and products for customers, rushing orders to get
them on time (or early) and never really charged enough money.
we’re smarter (I hope), we’ve found some good people to align ourselves
with and most importantly, we’ve started believing our dreams. Its not
just hard work because we both work non-stop, one of us is on social
media all day, sprucing up photos and text, plus photographs and on it
goes. Its more like a marathon to get to your dream. You will hit
walls and you will cry and want to give up, but the next day you’ll fall
in love all over again and decide to make a new product or dream a new
So if I could
amend Burl Ive’s song I would. Its not just tomorrow for dreams to come
true, its getting a solid group of people to walk through your dreams
with you. Who will love you enough to tell you when to either stop or
find another way. So yes, there are always tomorrows for dreams to come
true, but its more like there are always tomorrows for more 24/7 work
weeks. Dreams don’t always come true, but you just never know when its
going to happen and chances are, it may be better than what you could
have ever dreamed.
P.S. We are checking our comments. We noticed some comments from posts back and tried to respond to all of them.
