The idea for this post popped into my head a few days ago. I was feeling a little blue and sorry for myself. I was feeling stuck in a rut... that the dreams I held were never going to come to anything. But I held off writing this straight away because I didn't want to post something that was so negatvie! We all have times when we feel a bit fed up. After a life long fight with depression - I get a little scared when I have days like this. I'm afraid that the feeling won't go away after a few hours, and I'll get sucked back down.
“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”
It's all too easy to get bogged down in day to day life and forget the bigger picture. The little details that make life sometimes can block everything else out.
But I think that dreams are incredibly important. They are what motivate us to keep pushing. They separate us from those who just let life pass them by.In believing that your dreams can come true... you have taken the very first step to achieving them.
A year ago I would never have believed that my dream of selling my crafts would happen - but it has. I have a new shop open, and things have been selling - to see this dream become my reality is such an amazing feeling!
I journal and make lists of my dreams. I create vision boards. I focus on what I want to happen. Keeping my mind focused helps me to go and and put my dreams into action.
It's also important to be flexible in your dreams. Allow things to change with time, bend and give a little along the way. But know that deep in your heart, one day they will come true. I am not one who is happy to just follow along with life. I am not content with the idea that we have to do as we are told, follow the rules, work 9-5, be content with what we have. I believe in reaching out for more. For following our hearts and doing what we love. For bettering ourselves and changing the circumstances of our lifes.
