I can remember back to when I was little and I would catch myself daydreaming in school or in the car or before bed. I would dream about all sorts of things; what it would be like to drive a car, what I would be when I grew up, what I would look like on my wedding day (still dreaming about that one LOL). To be honest, I think that for most of us our dreaming stops at a young age. We get hit with the real questions. Our days of being astronauts and princesses are over. Life gets real and we lose sight of all of those hopes and dreams we had. And to me, that is such a sad realization. Dreaming is one of the most amazing gifts we have because it takes us out of the reality of what we are and puts us into the possibilities of what we can achieve. Many people think that dreams are simply that, just dreams. These far-off things that we will never achieve. These crazy scenarios that we will never accomplish. These innocent, childlike, images that fill our heads. And while they are all of those things, they are also possibilities just waiting for someone to believe in them, chase them, and achieve them.
I want you to take a second and think of something you always wanted to achieve. Picture it in your head. Take note of how you feel. Is your heart beating a little faster? Do you have a smile on your face? Do you feel like the world has stopped for a second? If so, then it is time to chase that dream. Grab it, hold tight, work hard, and make it happen. Whether it is something physical like a new job, a new house or another baby or something mental like self-confidence, forgiveness or a shift in your perspective, whatever it may be, it is time to chase it. We might not be sure how to get there or what steps to take, but we know that it is something our heart desires. It is something that we need to take a leap of faith on. From this point on there is no looking back. No more doubt. No more fears. Make a promise to yourself right now that everyday you will work towards your dreams. That you wont stop working towards them.
How do we do this babes? We start dreaming again. We believe that we are capable of our biggest dreams. Yep, that's right. Dream big people. Because if your dreams don’t scare you are they really big enough? I know how scary to think of actually doing this. Actually looking in the mirror and loving the reflection. Leaving the corporate world to do playdates and laundry. To run a marathon. To move away. To do anything that you haven't done yet in this life. I know change is hard, and that first step, it’s the hardest. Because when we get comfortable in life, that's when we stop growing. And when we stop growing we stop learning. And when we stop learning, we fail. Life isn't about settling for what is, its about chasing what can be. Each and every one of you is so beyond capable of making those dreams a reality. I know this because you are strong. You are capable. You are worthy. So, find that dream. Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it. And watch your life turn into those daydream you used to sit around thinking about, I promise you they can become a reality.
Sending you all some love, some confidence, and some daydreams. Believe in yourself TORQUE tribe and guess what, you are halfway there! I love you to the moon, but now its time to reach for the stars! Happy dreaming!
