Dream as if there is no tomorrow
Dream as if there were no limits
Dream as if fear didn’t exist
Dream as if there was no criticism
Dream as if you could do anything in the world
Dream as if your dream was the matter of life and death
Dream as if the world didn’t pressure you for perfection
Dream as if you could never stop dreaming
The truth is that we allow life, people, and things to happen to us to curve, stop, or even limit the dreams we aspire to do for ourselves.
As young children, we are so full of life, we have dreams of being anything we can set our minds on, such as firefighters, doctors, lawyers or anything else that we could imagine.
But then, as we grow up, and life seems to chip our innocence, aspirations away, we slowly allow those dreams to diminish into… what ifs.
We slowly, but surely give up on our dreams and ourselves, to live mediocre adult lives of 9 to 5, kids, and pleasing others.
We let life overtake us so much that we lose ourselves in day to day living, not even thinking about the dreams we once wanted.
There is a way to come out of this thinking, there is still time to PUSH for your dreams, PUSH for what you want out of life.
Get out of your zombie way of living, and do something everyday that scares you, that PUSHES you to do something towards the dreams you once had.
Let go of all the ugly things life has dumped on your spirit, and pick yourself up and fight for your DREAMS!!
IF you are still alive and breathing, you still have the power to pursue them… No matter the mistakes, circumstances, or naysayers, you still have what it takes INSIDE of YOU to go FOR YOUR DREAMS!!! DON’T GIVE UP, and NEVER STOP DREAMING!!!!!!
If you find it hard to dream, or even to keep working towards your dreams; try some of these things below.
Ways To Help You Reawaken Your Dreams
1. Create a vision board
Having something that you can visually look at will help to keep you motivated to go after what it is that you see. That saying ” seeing is believing” is more than true when it comes to continuing or starting to chase our dreams. Meditate on what you want your life to look like, then find old books or magazines to cut out of to make a collage that symbolizes those very things. If you know what you really want you can easily say no to what it is you don’t want. Plus it’s added inspiration.
2. Find Mentors/Look up to people who are living their dreams
Having someone that understands where you are and where you are trying to go, can help you stay on track. Knowing that there are people in the world who have accomplished what you want to accomplish, should give you enough inspiration to see that you too can do the same. Ask questions and research, what exactly did these people do to get where they are? Don’t try and recreate a wheel, that has already been made for you. Reach out, a lot of times people are more than willing to help with words of advice.
3.Remember what it is you wanted to do as kid
My son wants said to me ” mom, why are adults so angry? Why don’t they follow their dreams and do what they want? All I could think of saying is ” as an adult life gets hard, and some people just lose faith and hope.” We have to find the power within ourselves to remember what set our souls on fire as children, sometimes that can either be the thing or lead us to the thing that we really want. Don’t let societies demands damper your spirit. We all have a purpose that is way bigger than the mediocre.
4. Look at what your passionate about
What is that you are extremely passionate about? What do you love so much that you could see yourself doing everyday in your life? Is it something you get excited about? Is it something that maybe you could volunteer for? Even if it’s something that doesn’t necessarily make money, do it because it is what makes your soul feel happy.
These are just a few ideas that can help you reawaken your dreams. The biggest thing is to not get comfortable where you are. There is always room for growth. There is always time to start something new. Don ‘t die knowing that you didn’t give your best or you didn’t do what you’ve always wanted to do. Don’t be afraid. Instead step out on faith and pursue your dreams.
