I’ve never had a problem dreaming. I’ve had a problem doing. Somehow, in some ways, my dreams have gotten placed in between never, never land and the land down under. Oh, mind you, my dreams have been big. Larger than life itself, perhaps. But dreams they’ve been. I’ve managed to hold myself spellbound as I set about doing the things necessary to untangle my intricately spun web. Things like holding my head high despite several tries and remembering to take deep breaths before attempting to accomplish the next unnecessary feat. Dreaming I love and dare to do, it’s the undoing of the not doing that I have trouble with. It’s hard to remember the very necessary lesson of not being too hard on oneself and to be aware of encouraging and inspiring moments that occur in some of the most simplest moments of our lives. Moments when we’re not dreaming but fully awake. I’ve had to learn to listen with my head and now always my ears. To understand that others see ourselves differently than we think they do. That’s when I know my dreams are being realized and I’m fully awake. When I hear the words of encouragement spill forth from the mouths of more than one person throughout a given day. It’s the small moments that help me realize that my dreamy state of mind can be achieved just a little bit, slowly one day at a time. That’s when I know that I’m dreaming it and doing it.
