I’m not sure what happened or why I feel the need to talk about this again but I guess it must be important.
I will admit that with my skewed priorities these past few weeks, my desire and time to blog has been limited. I’m not complaining but my blog time is usually at night after the kids are in bed but before I go to bed and lately that little block of time just didn’t exist.
Now with things starting to re balance a little, I’m thinking a little more clearly which has lead to me becoming a little more driven about making my dreams become reality.
I don’t know if you read my 2014 goals but they were in some ways set sort of lofty but intentionally and I might have left one or two off (which I promise to let you into the loop on soon).
Do you remember being asked, when you were a kid what you wanted to be when you grew up? Do you remember your answer?
If you were like me it was probably something like Marine Biologist or Veterinarian or Astronaut, which I had every intention of pursuing (the Marine Biologist that is but that’s another story for another time). That too, was partially a lofty goal and yes I got my fair share of eye rolling when I would share my dreams with people. As I got older, and moved away from the Marine Biologist response, I started to realized that I simply didn’t know.
I had no good answer. I knew what I liked doing but I struggled to figure out how to turn my passion into something more than just a pipe dream. That was until I started blogging. I’ve learned from all of you that:
Dreaming big isn’t a bad thing. It’s not foolish or childish. It’s smart and as long as you’re willing to step outside your comfort zone, which can be EXTREMELY tough, those pipe dreams come into focus. Plans and paths to get to those goals become a little more clear and mabye, just maybe, you start to build confidence in the thought that…”holy cow, you might ACTUALLY be able to pull it off.”
I’m learning everyday that it’s ok to be scared, nervous energy is good but what it is not ok is to sit and wait for your dream to get handed to you. That’s NOT going to happen. You have to work for every single opportunity to make it come true.
So what is it that you have been dreaming about? My hump day advice…go for it! Spend sometime really thinking about it and when you get scared, think about it again. You will get there! I promise!
