Hello today! I don’t want to talk your ear off today (it’s supposed to be wordless, remember), but I am going through some emotional things. One main thing is how to, if I should, can I actually make my dream(s) a reality. Over the course of my life, my dreams have evolved but still have a core desire to motivate, inform and inspire. I was told was I doing these things when I didn’t even know it.
I am currently reading this book One Month To Live (30 days to a No-Regrets life) and the picture below is from the Chapter Dreamsicle Thawing Out Your Frozen Dreams. I underlined the words below because some months back I was just so sad I told my husband, “I am going to STOP DREAMING! I am just going to live this life, raise these kids and that be that!” My husband went into a frenzy, “Nooo! You can’t stop dreaming! You of all people can’t stop dreaming!” Deep inside I knew I probably wouldn’t stop but I was sad in the moment.
This past Sunday my Bishop pulled me out and told me God said, “Don’t stop Dreaming!” He said some more things but that is for another blog post. Then on Monday, I texted my Bishop and told him that his word really pierced my heart because there is an idea/dream/desire I have for a non-profit that is meant to change the lives of those around me but I decided to not go after it because IT WAS JUST TO BIG OF AN IDEA. I COULDN’T DO IT WITH MY OWN POWER. I decided to go for it after all. Then today – I read this.
If a dream is from God, it will be so big in your life that you can’t do it on your own!
This chapter just made me sit back and shake my head. Am I being told to GO FOR IT. I can say that I am so passionate about my idea that I am willing to make it my life work. I am going to step out and activate my faith and watch God work.
What about you? Is there a Dream/Desire/Passion that you put off because it was Bigger than YOU? Or are you already leaped that hurdle and living the dream? Do tell!
