It’s still the beginning of the New Year, so I’m still asking students, friends, and you, dear reader, to DREAM BIG. Defining your dreams, writing them down, making concrete your innermost thoughts and desires builds a scaffolding for your life. The life-changing decisions (where should I live? what should my next career be? etc.) can then fit into this foundation.
I think this quote says it best:
“You’ve got to think about ‘big things’ while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.” – alvin toffler
I have three real dreams in my life: to teach, to travel and to love.
These are pretty BIG DREAMS.
So, I’m setting this foundation and filling it in, decision by decision, to build my dream life. Here are some of my 2016 dream blue prints:
- To expand my Workshop and Special Events offerings.
- To Camp in the Cascades and Yoga in Yellowstone (family reunion 2016 here I come!)
- To actively nurture my friendships with “The Girls from Lamoni” and make new friendships along the way.
- To lay the foundation for a healthy and happy marriage (less than 8 months till the Big Day!)
This is just an overview. My blueprints are actually much more detailed. The daily decisions that remind me to keep my dreams in sight? Call one friend every week, just to chat. Schedule 3 workshops in 2016. Spend quality time with my Best Friend RussellClive and my Iron Man, while being mindful of what really matters and letting go of stress.
How are you dreaming big? What Small Things can make your Big Things come true?
Happy Building the Life You Love,
