Do you remember when you were a kid, having big dreams?!?!
I personally remember when I truly believed that I would grow up to be a famous writer. As I grew older, this dream faded and for some reason I stopped dreaming. Well okay that's not the right way to put this. I am one of the biggest dreamers I know. I guess I just stopped believing that my dreams could come true.
There is something so beautiful in how a child sees life. They see it as anything is possible and that there is no good enough reason to not be a singer, a dancer, a doctor, etc...Why is it that we forget to dream like we did as a child?
I think as time goes by and we grow up we kinda are conditioned to "forget" how to dream. We are conditioned to just be content with wherever our life is at.
I was going to school before I got married to be a Dental Hygienist. As much as I loved to deal with teeth and thought the anatomy of it all was literally the COOLEST thing, I wasn't completely passionate about it. It wasn't until I started blogging as a hobby that I realized I am constantly always full of new ideas, new topics, new things to talk about and I always find myself craving to blog. It brings me SO much joy to be able to express my feelings, thoughts and ideas with you guys. It's crazy to think that I started this journey as just a simple hobby. I always enjoyed writing but never thought I could actually make something out of it. Fast forward a couple of months and I'm officially trying to make a career out of it. I'm officially trying to grow my blog to become a successful platform of inspiration to anyone out there that reads it. I'm officially learning new things that I never thought I could or would learn. I'm officially working really hard every day to make my dream a reality.
So the big question is... how do we learn to dream again?! Like we did when we were kids?!
And the only true, honest answer I have come to find is...
It can be uncomfortable to just let go. In fact it can make us feel very silly and afraid. There's days where I'm like ok there are SO many successful bloggers out there. Too much competition, I will never be one of them. But then I remind myself that if I am going to start dreaming to my full potential, it is very important that I learn to have faith in my abilities.
We should dream wildly, sometimes even without trying to know how these dreams will become reality. We should enjoy the beauty of our dreams and trust that our dreams CAN and WILL come true. Keep dreaming beautiful people!
The sky is the limit.
Much love, Laura
