Today is Easter. What a morning I had and it’s only 10:47 am. Isn’t it amazing how we have no idea how a mere two hours can change our life?! That’s the last thing I ever thought would happen. This morning I read in the Bible about a Man that paid the ultimate price for me to dream a big dream, more importantly envision the dream and act on it. As I put down the Bible, I picked up another book on creating the vision for my dream. In the book the author asks us to write down our big dream and vision of what we see in our life.
What’s crazy is I realized my dreams and vision for myself over the years have been so puny. But, I couldn’t help but stare at that page in the book where she says write down your big dream. It was only 60 seconds but felt like an hour. It was blank. Here are the questions swirling in my head. “Can I really fulfill a dream that big?” “ I feel like I am not equipped enough yet” and “Where do I start?”
She was right. If your dream gives you butterflies than it’s a big dream. That feeling came over me just as I read it in on the page. Yesterday, I had the same feeling as I spoke to my wonderful Melanie. I actually got scared halfway through our conversation. I had said to myself “Maybe you should stop talking about this.” I now realize I was had been speaking part of my vision out loud to my world for a while and didn’t even know it. My dream and my vision that I didn’t think I really had, was already being subconsciously manifested by me!
That’s when the light bulb went off! I really had the power in me already! Here’s what I thought would happen. God would all of a sudden zap it in me or some amazing situation would have to occur. It’s funny…as I just wrote that last line, I gave a huge sigh of relief! I 100% believe I can achieve my crazy, bold, audacious dream!
For the very first time in my life- I know without a shadow of a doubt, that I am on the right path! As I look back on this past week leading up to this every moment; every day I have had a daydream. I have envisioned looking down a street and it’s green light after green light after green light…this very post is the beginning of my new life of pure possibility!
I’ve officially changed the lyrics to the famous song “Dream a little Dream”. My new tune is Dream a BIG Dream!
