Extravagant Thinking

I know it doesn’t really bear repeating, but I am super stoked that I am officially a published author. 🙂 I learned a long time ago to fake it ’til I make it and these days I am doing just that. I envision myself at my amazing desk in my cozy home office writing books while I have a grand view of the acres of woods outside my rustic cabin in Upstate Pennsylvania. This has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl going camping with the family at Parker Dam. There is a fire roaring in the stone fireplace centered in the great room.

Now, most people think extravagant and think jewels, riches, furs, diamond encrusted mansions with diamond encrusted poodles. But that isn’t me. Extravagant to me is a log cabin, woodland creatures and about two feet of snow because I don’t need to worry about it. I have all the firewood and kindle I need, a stocked fridge and Spirit the Cat has the best view in the house as he lays on his grand windowsill that overlooks the west corner.

My husband is working on an art project in his studio at the other end of the cabin while a delicious meal stews in the crockpot of the chef’s kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances, brick oven, and seating for twenty.

One never knows when the family might drop by for a weekend visit!

This is all extravagant because I don’t need it. I don’t need a five bedroom six bathroom house with a kitchen bigger than a first-floor apartment, a five-car garage, and seventy-five acres, a wrap around porch and a breathtaking view out every window.

I don’t need it. But I want it so I envision myself there every single day. I see myself making a cup of coffee in my rustic kitchen and taking it into my library to curl up in a cozy chair by the crackling fire as snow gently falls outside. Spirit the Cat rests on his favorite flannel blanket beside the fire as the music of J. R. Jones falls from surround sound speakers throughout the house.

This isn’t extravagant living for some, but it is for me. And I will manifest this scenario until it happens and then keep manifesting.

Happy New Year my friends… thank you so much for your support and following my blog here. I love you all!

  1. It does bear repeating. Being a published author is a great milestone in one’s life. It’s a great feeling. My idea of extravagant is similar in how I would love to have a beautiful home by the ocean where I can write to my heart’s content and be able to live comfortably. I always feel at peace when I’m near or in water. Great post!!!!

  3. Couldn’t agree more strongly. On the other hand, if you have an extra diamond-encrusted vehicle hanging around, I’ll be glad to take it off your hands.
    And about that book of yours: Just purchased my copy. congratulations Ms Author!
