my dream house on my Facebook wall. It's a beautiful home in Boulder. The view? Well, you can see the view. Perfect. Just perfect.
So why did I post it? It's not that I have $2 million in the bank, and can buy it today. I posted it because I could at some point, have 2 million in the bank. Or 10 million. Who knows? I posted it because it's good to dream, and to remind ourselves what it is we dream about.
It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day, focusing only on meetings at work, the grocery shopping list and what the kids need to do for homework. Days, weeks, months or even years can pass by without us lifting up our heads (or our hearts) long enough to look at where we're going in life -- or remembering where we want to go. Some people forget their dreams for decades, only to realize one day, maybe when this life is almost over, what they once wanted to do and be but never got around to trying.
So here is my challenge for you today. Take some time and think about something you want. Something you dreamed about. Make it a big dream. It could be a trip you wanted to take. A degree you wanted to complete. Or a house on a mountain side you wanted to own. Find a picture that represents your dream, and post it somewhere. On your wall, your door, your bulletin board or your Facebook wall. Tell the world what you dream about. And then -- and here is the really important part -- tell yourself about it. Feel it. Dream it. Make it real, and see it happening. Dare to challenge the universe -- and yourself -- to make it happen.
Dreams do come true. But first you have to have the dream. Happy dreaming!
