What’s your dream?
Have you forgotten it? Many of us do. You start out in this life with hopes and dreams and ambitions. Often they are quickly choked out by your fears – what will my friends think? Can I make enough money at it? How could I possibly achieve this goal? I’m not good enough. I don’t have the right education or enough money to attain my dream. You often talk yourself out of your goal before you’ve even begun.
When you have a dream and are committed to achieving it, your life takes on new meaning. There is a purpose to your life. By discovering and unfolding a dream, you feel enthusiasm. What is it that makes you happy and brings you joy? It may be a small thing or big thing. You may love to garden or to organize things. You may be especially good at languages or teaching children. Perhaps you find studying about herbs or nutrition fascinating. When you’re excited abut something, take small steps towards it. Gradually those small steps will create a new life you love.
As a child you could probably fill your days with imagination, curiosity, wonder and joy. What do you daydream about now? What do you think about when you’re stopped at a traffic light or when you’re lying in bed on a Sunday morning not having to leap out at the first ring of the alarm? Do you imagine what it would be like to start your own business? Maybe your dream creating a new product or service. Your dream doesn’t necessarily have to do with your work or career. It may become a way that you see yourself earning a living or it may simply be a hobby or an avocation.
Your dreams and hopes are part of your guidance system from God. I’ve often wished that the God I imagined as a child – you know, the one with the flowing white beard sitting on a huge throne – would come down out of the sky and say to me, “LYNN ROBINSON, THIS IS YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE!” Then he would hand me the script! Wouldn’t it be easy if it worked that way?? Yet I’ve come to believe that the system for receiving these “Divine Messages” is built into each of us. It’s called “Intuition” and we all have it. It’s the Universe’s e-mail!
