Do you have a dream? A dream that’s so big it scares you? It’s time to stop wondering what might happen and start chasing that big dream!
We all have dreams deep inside, and most of us have at least one big dream that we can’t let go. They make our hearts go pitter patter a little bit faster when we think about them.
Maybe your dream is to build your own business. Perhaps it’s to go back to college when your kids start school. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of traveling the world. Or perhaps your dream is being the best, most supportive stay at home mom ever.
Whatever your dream is, it’s yours. You have that dream for a reason. It’s your calling and you only get one chance at this life to go after it.
The Time is Now
You’ll never get yesterday back and tomorrow may never come. So stop saying, “I’ll have time when ______ happens.” The time is now. It’s the only time there is.
Now is the time to stop denying that big dream that’s nagging you from the inside. The one that is begging to come out. The dream that’s so big, you’re afraid to release it into the world. The one you’re afraid that if you let it go, it’ll never become what it is in your head. That’ll you’ll let yourself and others down if it doesn’t work out.
Guess what. If you’re just sitting there thinking about it, it’s never going to happen either. You have to make it happen. So get up, get over your fears and take the first step in reaching for your dream.
Take the First Step
Do you know what that first step was for me? Telling my husband. Because I knew without his support, it would be so much harder to make my big dream a reality. It was scary and emotional but I did it. And our marriage is so much stronger because of it.
With his support, I know my dream can become something even bigger, even better, than I could dream on my own. And I get to support his big dreams too because we’re on the same page. It’s the best feeling.
Is there one person in your life whose support or approval means the most to you? That is the person who you need to go tell your big dream to right now. It’s the quickest way to put your dream out there in the universe and make yourself accountable to chasing it.
The Power to Change is Yours
No matter where you’re at in your life right now, you have the power to change your circumstances. It may not happen overnight and it may take a lot of hard work and emotional turmoil, but we all have the free will to follow our dreams and do what makes us happy. You simply have to commit to it.
Far too many people get caught up in the daily grind and forget what makes them shine. They forget their special gifts and set their dreams aside. They live the life they think they should instead of the one truly meant for them.
Don’t be one of those people. Make a commitment to yourself to do what makes your heart smile. That doesn’t mean abandoning your commitments. It simply means making a decision to start working towards the life you truly desire.
At the same time, don’t judge yourself for not acting sooner. We all have our own “right” time to chase our dreams. If you’re reading this and it resonates with you, now is your time.
