I have a dream!
Writing this blog has been such a blessing to me. It has helped me to express things and process emotions, and track my progress...as well as receive the blessing of encouragement from others. Today I am in a state of thankfulness and awe at how my path has turned.
They said during our time in Maine that my story isn't finished yet, and this is true. I am in the process of dreaming a bigger dream. We have the ability to dream and create a vision of how we want our lives to be. We are also blessed to live in a time and place where we can persue our dreams.
But first we must speak it and put it out into space. If we want to change our destiny we must first change our thoughts...then our words...then our actions...then our destiny. So here it goes, my thoughts & words:
Part of my dream involves getting the word out to the masses. People like me. Normal... (don't say it star!) people from the midwest (& all of the US) who are tired, overweight, sick and have lost that vibrancy and lust for life.
I want to travel. Live on the beach, not near it. I want to dance, kayak, play beach volleyball again. I want fresh flowers surrounding me at home and office. And would like to enrich and sustain my wonderful marriage and friendships, working with my best friend and dh. I want to grow deeper in faith and spirit. I want to eliminate ALL debt so I can be free to give to others in need. I want to buy a home for my mom and for my dad. Be in peak physical condition and look great in my bathing suit (and birthday suit). I want to use my God given creative talents to encourage others and bring healing to my family, friends, their friends and family and the nation. I want to see the obesity, suicide and disease rates plummet. I want to start writing and designing a raw magazine and work with my dh on a raw/eco living television show for pbs. I want to cultivate more friendships on a deeper level. I want to deepen my family relationships and grow closer. I want a cat, a tiger. I want to reach my perfect weight, I'll know what that is when I get there. I want to visit Italy again, and greece. I want to help others reach their potential and realize their goals and dreams. I want to leave the world better than how I found it. These are my dreams - for now.
I hope this rambling inspires you to get alone today or this weekend to dream. I think it is very fitting that my quote below my avitar has said from day one "It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else" - erma bombeck
I hope you find that same courage to share your dreams and then act on them. You are worth it, and only you are perfectly created to dream your dreams and do what it takes to make them a reality.
Change your thoughts.
Change your words.
Change your actions...
And you will change your destiny.
Love you guys.
You mean the world to me.:)
