Have you ever wondered if you could be something special? Do something inspiring?
There’s a longing in my heart to do something inspirational but I am not quite sure what it is or even if I am capable. After all, there are plenty of broken and hurting people, that a little bit of inspiring news or hopeful thoughts couldn’t hurt. I myself have been broken and hurting. Could something I say or do make a difference? I choose to believe so.
My goal is to work on what I am dreaming about. We took a Dream Journey class last month and it really made me think. We had to write out our dreams and then we would pick one we wanted to work on with some action plans. It was really tough for me. I think mostly because I had to face some fears and look deep into my heart and ask myself if I was really ready for this. I am good at being a turtle and hiding in my shell. But I can say that I am tired of hiding and just living life barely getting by. I am ready to enjoy every moment, every breath that I take.
I of course have tons of dreams but when everyday life gets in the way trying to do them is a different thing. This is a challenge. I have many excuses to why I can’t do it but what if we did? What if we followed our action steps and soared?
Here are some things I am deciding on to start my inspiration journey.
1.- Praying and Taking my time with God each day-
-Joyce Meyers talks about starting our day each morning with God. I have failed at this big time in the past but its a goal of mine to take this time to be fresh and new and have a great day.
-I will write in my notebook about things on a daily basis so that when I am ready to bring my dream in my mind to fruition I can see what I have written down and all that has fallen into play. It can be a quick thought or an emotion. Whatever, I will just write it.
3. -Be Fearless-
3. -Be Fearless-
-Fear is a big player in my life as well as insecurity. I have chosen a motto it is “Choose Today” We have so many positives we can choose daily. Its all in our decision and our mindset but we can choose. I have been learning this a lot lately.
3. -Be Positive-
-This can be the toughest because I can be a negative nelly and well sometimes i just don’t want to be positive and this is where #1 comes into play
4. -Dream limitless dreams-
-even silly ones like I will eat ice cream all week long( because I do love ice cream)
Just choosing to dream again. To find things you enjoy and you want to do in this life.What would it cost if you chose not to follow your dream?
5. -Give to others and choose Love-
-giving and loving are 2 of some of the important things we can do and I choose to do more of this.
6. Be Thankful Daily
I have made my list of “I choose today to…” and I will add to it whenever I think of more. If you check out my page “choose today” it has my positive choices I am going to be making or am making.
What can you choose today?
