“Dreams come true; without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.”  John Updike

Do you remember when you were a child?  Hours spent day-dreaming, planning big adventures.  As we get older, we tend to forget those earlier dreams.  Maybe we let ourselves get discouraged.  All too frequently, we let other people’s negative words and attitudes discourage and distract us from pursuing our dreams.  It’s time to take back our dream power! 

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.  So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.”  Mark Twain

It is crucial to get back into the habit of dreaming.  Set aside some time for yourself.   Get inspiration – whether you read, listen to music, watch movies (or all of the above!), focus on materials that are uplifting, that expand your heart.  Think about where you are, and where you would like to be.  Whether it’s where you live, the work you do, or a creative urge, ponder it.  Play with it.  Think “What if…..” and let your imagination go!   Focus on the possibilities, and connect with yourself. 

“If your thinking is limited, then your life is going to be limited.”  Joel Osteen

Make the time to start to dream.  Who knows where it might take you?  No excuses allowed!  If you are too busy, think about what tasks you can delegate.  Don’t think about the past; it’s gone-focus forward!  Dream for your future!
