Dreams and desires

Do you still have unmet dreams and desires? What's holding you back?

Ever talk with a friend who mentions a trip she's long wanted to take? A career he dreams of starting? Or an experience she wants to have before she's too old to enjoy it? And did you notice the excitement in her or his voice and the sparkle in the eye when the topic came up?

I've heard it said that we don't keep dreams alive so much as they keep us alive. I believe it. It's wonderful to have dreams and desires. It's also really wonderful to bring life to those that really burn within. Some desires give us joy by residing within us. Some simply have to be lived. You get to decide.

If you have something that you really want to do, think about what it might take to attain that dream. If you have more excuses than strategies to reach the dream, reflect on what fears might be getting in your way. Are these fears you can manage? What will that take? Can you commit to taking that journey?

Picture your life now. Then picture your life as it would be if you lived your dream or fulfilled your desire. Is it worth pursuing? If it is, create a step-by-step plan to get there. And remember to keep the steps small and achievable.

If you would like to talk about how to get past fear and reach for a dream, please contact me. I love to see people pursue their passions and dive straight into their dreams!
