So what if we take the time to dream? What if you had to change jobs tomorrow? What would you do? What if for some reason you had to relocate? Where would you go? And are the answers you give based on what is easiest or what you would truly desire?
When we were kids we dreamed all the time. I want to be an astronaut. I want to be a teacher AND a veterinarian. The possibilities were endless. Once upon a time I wanted to be a National Geographic photographer. I wanted to dive into the deepest caverns and hike through the wilderness in search of that perfect shot. It was one of many creams I have had and I'm not saying all of them were meant to come true. But how many did I even try to pursue?
I'm not saying this from a place of shame or disappointment. I love the path I've chosen. Rather I'm speaking from the place that knows how important dreaming is to my spirit. The possibilities are endless and I have the power to change course at any time so why not keep dreaming and actually try out a new thing or two?
I have a big family so it provides a lot of inspirational people. One cousin not only built up an amazing photography and boutique business but recently was featured in Fashion Week. It was amazing to watch her dreams unfolding! Another cousin has done all kinds of things from Zumba instructor to flight attendant and seems to have an amazing gift of brightening any room. She is an inspiration on just going for it and smiling along the way. These are just two of the dozens of people in my life that inspire me to keep dreaming.
I'm grateful for all the inspiration. I'm grateful for a big family that provides lots of love and inspiration. I'm grateful to have pursued several dreams and seen them come to fruition. I'm grateful to keep dreaming. I'm grateful to feel the wheels turning as something new is brewing. I'm grateful for all the possibilities. I'm grateful to play and imagine all that is possible. I'm grateful to trust I will know which ones to pursue.
What do you dream? What will you be? What path will you take next? Where will you go?
May today bring inspiration and imagination. May we play with the possibilities. Have a beautiful day!
