Dreaming. As a child I dressed as a princess and dreamed of life in a castle. My Barbie (in the days before she had all these beautiful clothes, cars, and professions) could be anything I wanted. My mom’s large cooking pot was Barbie’s swimming pool. In my dreams I traveled the world.
Then life happened, I grew up, and one by one the dreams started fading away. I got so tied up in the ‘shoulds’ of life, I forgot the ‘dreams’.
Recently I bought a tiara o remind myself I am a princess. I am a child of the King of Kings! I am turning down the volume of the voices in my head telling me I am nothing.
What is holding you back from chasing your dreams? For many, it is self-doubt. Let’s step out together, face down that self-doubt and seek those possibilities we have buried.
Stretching my comfort zones, I created my first online video. I am calling it “Teatime with TerryAnn”. I am hoping it will be the 1st of many.
Let’s explore the word DREAM over the next few weeks. For the letter D – I dare you. I dare you to dare yourself. Forget all the responsibilities, troubles, and obligations for 1 minute. Set the timer – 1 minute. In this 1 minute write out your dream. Let your mind wander, where will you go in this dream?
That 1 minute may feel like an eternity the first time I did it. I tried it again the next day, it was still hard. After several days, I was able to ignore the beep of the timer.
How about you? Will you join me?
DREAM. The letter D, I dare you.
