For the longest time I killed any urge I had to daydream because I thought I should be practical, "Why waste brain space on something that is not going to happen... or something that would only tease me?" I thought. It was only later that I realized how wrong I was. I had a personal epiphany: denying my dreams meant denying a part of my deep self.
Since that time have I made some radical, life altering, life affirming changes! A little over a year ago, sitting in my office and looking out at a world beyond my excel spreadsheet I had a dream to leave the office-workaday world in order to live more fully with my purpose. Because I finally heeded that dream I was able to totally reinvent my life.
I cannot imagine my life now if I had not given myself permission to dream. So for today, I encourage you to dream that big scary dream that won't go away, that settles in at the very edge of your awareness saying, "I am still here, and I am waiting." Our thoughts create our reality but it is our spirit that starts the spark, the ignition sequence for take off.
