This morning I feel like, more often than not, the term practical is used to restrain our true desires. Somewhere along the path many of us seemed to stop dreaming about what we truly wanted and started dialing those dreams back by what we felt or were told was practical. "Not everyone can live their dream; be practical and make sure the bills are paid." And there are lots of times that practicality is essential to living. Yet if we released all the fears that held us to practicality, most likely there would be so much more possible that was waiting for us. As a child, when you dreamed of what was possible, was not all the practical unconsciously taken care of too? A child may not say I want to be a millionaire and be able to pay all my bills and have a nice house that's paid for and still afford cookies at the grocery store. When a child dreams of the future, the practicality, whether they are aware of it or not, is rolled up in that dream. Practicality is in the details and often in doubt that a dream so large could just be manifested. Yet our mind is such a powerful thing! And when we try to dictate those details and worry about the practicality of our dream we may very well be tapering the ability to manifest it. Yes it is important to pay my bills and provide for myself and those relying on me. But in setting my dreams high, focused in the possibilities, I am working toward something better than surviving. I am working towards thriving! And it is not an either or situation. By taking steps each day to move toward my dreams I can be accomplishing the practical while setting my focus and intentions for the higher possibilities. I'm so grateful to open my mind and intentions to the possible. I'm grateful to dream like a child, unhindered this morning. I'm grateful to believe anything is possible. I'm grateful to have faith that it will all work out as it is meant to and that the greater picture is in line with my dreams. I'm grateful to know I can release any old fears and manifest my desires. I'm grateful to know the practical is taken care of when I open my heart to what's possible. Are you dreaming in practicality or possibility? What fears can you release today, knowing the universe wants to support your dreams? How can you reconnect with your inner child and open your heart to your true unhindered desires? May your day be one of infinite possibilities. May you glimpse the ways the universe is working to support you in manifesting your desires. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
