A little note on dreams and goals


*

Everyone has their own worries, fears, dreams and hopes within them. They are unique to us and precious. Yet, so often we're afraid to bring those ideals we hold dear to the surface, incase that very special plan of ours becomes crushed once exposed to the world. 

Not everyone is encouraged to follow their dreams. They are told it is unrealistic and fanciful. And worst of all, not real life. 


Life has many frightening paths, which at some point in our lives we all walk down before getting safely to the other side, after a few scary life lessons along the way. But just because life has it's tragedies, its sorrows, it's everyday mundane routines like bill paying and appointments - it doesn't mean we should forget our dreams and those little sparkles within that bring light to our day.

Surely life needs a little more dreaming and a little more hope, and a lot more light to be let in amongst the normal and the usual. 

The world is full of people that had a dream and made it happen. It takes courage, determination but most of all, dedication through the trials and errors. It may not happen over night. It may not happen for many years. But dreams can become your reality if you don't give up on them.

The wonderful thing is as you grow, learn, change - your dreams often do too.  They evolve and grow stronger and more complex in colour, or they dissolve into something else altogether. As long as you acknowledge they're there, they will keep shining and sharing with you what is right in your life and what is wrong. They act as a good guide, encouraging you towards the path that's meant for you.
It's worth noting they're there, ready to bring them to life when the time is right. 

Dreams can be anything from the lavish to the quiet everyday hopes. I am talking about the kind of dreams that bring happiness, joy and quality to our lives and others. 

Wining the lottery may seem a far fetched dream to have, and one that you have very little power over - but if you dig that dream up and expose it to the sun, you may just find that what you actually want is 'financial stability, freedom to do what you want, no more of the 9 - 5' 

So, with a little hard work, and the courage to change,  you can set about making that dream a possibility by looking at what matters most to you. What could you do without so you could maybe work part time? What skills do you have which may enable you to change careers and not be tied down? What lovely things would you like to bring into your life to have more excitement, fun and postivity in your day . . . it's all so do able and it's all achievable. It's all very possible, with a big dose of self belief, soul searching and commitment to a helping of hard work in the early stages.

It's all about recognizing that you have a choice. This is so easily forgotten when we've been walking a certain path for such a long time. We can become settled and often a little bit stuck. But, we do have a choice and we do have a voice, and there are many good souls who are happy to encourage us forwards when we don't believe that we are capable of those happy, hopeful things.

Dreams are not unrealistic - they are a part of life worth devoting as much time as we can spare to - because from them good things will surely grow . . . having dreams always makes life's tragedies so much more bearable, they are a light in the dark and a comfort in the tough moments.

Keep tightly hold of yours . . . and see what happens . . . I did : )






With love
