A couple of years ago, my Juice Plus mentor suggested that I make a dream board. And I said…”a what??”. A while later, Dream Board training under my belt, I felt empowered and inspired to attempt to do this “DREAM BOARD” thing. You might ask, so what did this training consist of. This mentor of mine, who I totally look up to in a big way, did some sharing and chatting about her dreams and the journey where she saw those realized. WOO HOO. Got me all pumped up. Until the scissors were out, the magazines and that BLANK piece of paper. But I pulled myself through it. It was a small one. I dutifully hung it up where I could see it each day. BECAUSE I truly believed that if she said it would work, then it would. And besides, whats the harm. Ha ha.
And DARN IT if all those things didn’t come true. And fast. It was super cool. And the next obvious thought comes up. I am an educated woman, wouldn’t expect any less from my highly educated mind that I’m still paying students loans for…”hey smart girl, why didn’t you put cooler, bigger, better stuff on there???” SERIOUSLY!
And I thought about that. Are we afraid of dreaming? Do we already judge whats possible before we even let our hearts go? Have we put up these fences, to keep the wild horses in? To be safe?
So I tried a different thought…lets pretend that we are itty bitty, roll the clock back to what we were thinking and dreaming about when we were 10. Give ourselves the freedom to dream that big. That wild. That WHATEVER! And cut THAT picture out.
Because you never really know whats in store. Know that if you put the fence up, you are sure to know what to expect, you’ve been living that already. The unexpected might be a bit scary, but it could end up to be totally super cool.
Just a bit of faith.
So would you be willing to share your dreams. BIG. BOLD. OUT IN THE OPEN?!?!?!
If so, post to facebook. Post on this blog. I would love to know what your dreams are.
My heart believes 100% and 100% more that when you tell your dreams, share them with your lovies, YOUR DREAMS WILL COME TRUE.
And if you HAVE one. and it’s tucked away…pull it out. Look at it. Love it. Then do another one. A FRESH one. Things change. You change. Everything changes. It’s ok. Don’t be afraid of wanting, of having desires. Of wanting different things than others. We are all so UNIQUE. Our dreams will be too. That’s what makes everything to stinkin’ JUICY.
LIVE OUT LOUD!
