Are you living the life you really want to live? Are you doing what makes your heart sing and your spirit sparkle? Do you wake up most mornings feeling blessed that you get to do what you love? If your answer is a resounding yes, then bravo, for you are among those who shine their light ever so brightly and create a path for others. If you are not yet there, I invite you to take a risk and indeed a risk it is. For it takes great courage to dream.
You may be thinking, “It doesn’t take courage to dream.” And no doubt for some of you that’s true. Perhaps you grew up in a family where you were told you could have whatever you wanted, that the sky was the limit simply because of who you are.
The vast majority of you, I suspect, were discouraged from dreaming, from finding your passion. “You can’t do it.” “You’ll never make it, so why even try?” “You’re not smart enough.” “Why don’t you get a real job?” These may have been the words you heard the most.
Dreams are what life is made of; they give us a reason to get out of bed in the morning and a reason to keep going, especially on those days we want to give up. When we live our lives on purpose, everyone benefits, because when we’re happy, people around us are happy. When we hate the lives we have, consciously or subconsciously, we make everyone suffer. There is a power in loving what we do. There is also a sense of destructiveness when we don’t. Being stuck in a job we hate or a relationship that is unhealthy debilitates the soul.
The first leg of your incredible journey into real and lasting self-esteem is to tap into your heart’s desire.
Allow your mind to wander – just begin to imagine the impossible. Allow yourself to enter the field of unlimited possibilities. Whatever the dream, allow yourself the opportunity to think about it. Don’t worry about making it happen, just dream….
You’re invited to go on this journey, one that can possibly change the course of your life forever. My hope is that by your willingness to take one small step, you will be motivated to take yet another, and another, leading eventually to a life you really want.
