My Mondo Beyondo class has come to an end.
The time really flew by and I’m pretty saddened that it’s over and yet completely exulted and inspired.
Mondo Beyondo is a class about dreaming big, about conquering your fears, about all the hippie dippy shit I am totally into. Talk of energy and the Universe with a capital U and loving yourself and setting things free and uncluttering and making room and giving and receiving. All of this revolves around your Mondo Beyondo List, something slightly resembling a Bucket List, huge gargantuan dreams that you wish to come true, ways you wish to improve your life, secret hopes you feel silly for sharing.
I was so inspired by the women and men in this class that I decided to post my Mondo Beyondo list here. I was hoping to hit a hundred but so far am stuck in the mid-80′s. I’ve come to terms with that since I figure the older I get, the more the list will expand and adapt. It’s worthy to note that many things on this list are feasible, many can be accomplished but more important than actually completing the list was my courage to write it in the first place. To simply believe that I was good enough and confident enough to challenge myself in new ways. To put my faith in God and in the Universe with a capital U and most of all, in myself.
This class really picked me up out of a creative slump. And whether or not my Mondo Beyondo list becomes a reality (full disclosure: three items are already checked off!), I feel so grateful that I spent the past five weeks investing in my creative side. That I made space for my dreams and my hopes, that I made peace with the girl I wish to become and the girl I already am.
I loved this class so much that I’m considering taking it again in the future. And should you need an artistic kick in the ass, the next available course begins in January 2010, the perfect time for a clean slate and a big fat list of secret dreams.
And so, here you go, my Mondo Beyondo List circa November 2009. I will post a permanent link to it soon.
I’d love to hear some items from your possible Mondo list in the comments! Should you choose to share. Or…if you had big dreams and they already came true? I’d like to hear that too.
