Here we are again, celebrating a New Year. Those of us that are lucky enough to say goodbye to 2014 and welcome in 2015 with open arms might be contemplating our life, just as I am right now.
I recently read a blog called “Breaking the chains-A story of self transformation, which you can read here:http://www.thechangeblog.com/self-transformation/
Kelsey Frizzell writes about always having the desire to dream of a more exciting life. I can remember when I was young, thinking that I could act just as well as the actresses I watched on TV. I could sing just as good and some of the biggest pop stars. I remember thinking Barbara Streisand wasn’t all that. I could hit those high notes just as she did so effortlessly. I was completely wrong, and I know that now, but that didn’t stop me from dreaming.
High School brought the dream of being with the perfectly adorable boy who just happened to be nice to me that day. I wasn’t the popular girl in school, in fact far from it. When a boy caught my eye, I would go off into never never land and dream of getting married, having his children and living a life happily ever after.
The Art Institute was an entirely different dream. I would become this fabulous fashionista, traveling to New York City, even possibly living there. I would rub elbows with the elite designers and wear expensive clothes made specially for me. I would have a prestigious career and be the envy of all my friends.
I married the love of my life and I dreamed of owning the perfect house, in the most prestigious neighborhood, with the brightest children, living the good life. I would never struggle, never lose, and always have the best of everything.
Aside from one or two of my dreams coming true (my children make me so proud), I haven’t seen many of my dreams come true, but that didn’t stop me from dreaming. Now I have changed my dreams a lot over the years, depending on my situation and desires at the time. But one thing holds true: I NEVER STOPPED DREAMING.
Dreams are what makes your life exciting. We dream to step out of our reality and into the possibility that there might be something bigger in store for us. The future is always brighter and fantasy might even become reality.
I like to include music to go along with the idea of my post, so please turn this one up and enjoy, while you dream…
