“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” Paulo Coelho
When we don’t take the time to dream, we are susceptible to get caught up in the routine of everyday comings and goings. When we fail to dream, we are subject to losing sight of the beauty that surrounds us with all the magic it holds. When we forget to stop and schedule moments to just be and dream, we miss out on that precious time to connect with that place inside waiting to blossom forth. Our dreams are what keeps our passion alive. Our dreams are what makes life worth living. Our dreams need to be recognized and validated so that we can thrive. Do we dream to face the challenge of running a marathon to see what our bodies are capable of? Do we dream to perform on stage singing and dancing to our hearts content to see if we are courageous? Do we dream to develop a cure to see if we can use our minds to relieve suffering? Or do we dream to write to share our light with the world to see if we can make a difference? How will we connect with our burning desires within if we don’t take the time to shine light on our dreams? Wake up. In the reaching for something greater than ourselves, pushing past other’s notions of what could happen for us, we revitalize our purpose and path. Yes, we wake up, get dressed and go to work or wherever else we are scheduled to be. Yes, we have responsibilities to tend to that seek to fill the hours of our days. However, when we focus, plan, and take just moments on a daily basis to think about what gives our hearts wings, that time invested in ourselves will be key for mapping out our personal plan for finding joy through our dreams. A dream map that will guide us to reach for something that has always been in our grasp. One that will continue to protect us from the doldrums of life and guide us to discover our greatest potential. Yes, our spirits depend on the time that we take to be innovative by imagining what we are capable of. When we start out by focusing on our dreams and then setting out to follow them, we open the doors for a whole world of possibilities as we enthusiastically experience a universe where dreams really come true! Now how is that for interesting!
