What’s Greater in Your Life?

media-20170907.jpg

Today’s post might be a tough pill to swallow but it’s been the truth in my experience. I used to be someone whose excuses tainted my perspective. I was so caught up in the day to day that I not only lost sight of my dream but stopped dreaming. Continue reading “What’s Greater in Your Life?”

Dreams That Scare You!

This year I’ve dedicated myself to dreaming like a child. Remember when you were a kid and you didn’t know limitations existed, you didn’t know things weren’t possible, you didn’t get so caught up in the details you got distracted from the dream itself? Continue reading “Dreams That Scare You!”

Depression & Dreams

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I used to struggle with depression. For those of you that don’t know, I’m publishing a book that will be released at the end of the month detailing the process I used to conquer a 17-year battle with depression. Something I’ve enjoyed doing since I overcame the battle is dreaming. It’s something I stopped doing as the battle with depression waged on. In recent years, I’ve given myself permission not only to dream but to chase those dreams. Continue reading “Depression & Dreams”

Fear, Double Dutch, & Greatness

niki-meadows-quotesThis is the essence of the motivation I was inspired to share with you today. You see so many times, we have big dreams inside of us; ones we’re brave enough to share and others that we keep to ourselves. I know what it’s like to tell myself I’ll move forward when I’m ready. The problem is, if I use that as my launch date, it might not ever happen. I might not ever be comfortable enough, prepared enough, I could go on for a while with this.

Teachable Tuesday|Snowball Dreams

This topic is so fitting! I was telling my daughter as she started a new school year that it’s ok to not know but if you don’t try it’s an automatic failure. Of course, that’s in the sense of taking exams but the same is true for life. So many times fear of failure holds us back but we don’t realize that not trying holds us back far more!

Dreaming Chasing Isn’t Always About Reaching Your Goals: The Power of Trying

I couldn’t help but think of my own dream of writing when I read this. This post is on the same wavelength as my quote challenge post yesterday about not giving up on your dreams. Danny does such a great job giving dreams and wishes perspective as well as explaining why someone’s dream might still come true even if it’s not what you thought. A great read, I promise!

Dream Big, Dream Often

There is a misunderstanding about dream chasers that some non-doers struggle with: chasing dreams isn’t always about achieving the goal. I have received a few emails lately about chasing dreams that seem unattainable or unrealistic.  The question that was posed to me concerned whether I would support a friend’s dream even if it was legitimately impossible.  I have thought about it and put forth the following thoughts…

First, we have discussed the importance of surrounding yourself with positive, forward thinking, successful people.  And this one topic is a perfect example as to why a good support system is essential.  You need a solid support group to help you honestly evaluate your dreams versus wishes.  I never want to discourage anyone from chasing dreams, but do not want to see people chase wishes.  A dream is something that a person is passionate about, cannot live without and wants to possess…
