Have you forgotten your dream?
If you could choose a new career or way of life that made your heart sing, what would it be? Dream big. Skies the limit. And money is no object. What would your heart want you to do?
As a child, the world was your oyster. Everything was possible, and endless possibilities were everywhere. Most of the time you didn’t even wait for someone to tell you whether you were right or wrong–you just went for it. The game of make-believe turned your world into a haven of creative bliss. One day you were a doctor and the next a rock star, dancer or sea captain. Every moment brought a new adventure that changed your world and made your heart sing. Pure freedom fueled days of laughter, a light spirit and a smile as big as could be.
Then you grew up. Imagination and creativity became structured. And structure put you into a box crafted by societal expectations. Money became a driving force, and “things” became a model of joy and happiness. Exhaustion replaced freedom, and freedom became heavy—noted only to describe rights, laws and rules. Rules, silent or publicly displayed, that were created to provide more structure and direction as to how you should live and behave. And one day you turned around and realized you forgot what your heart actually wanted to be.
It’s time for a personal revolution. You were born to create, imagine and be free. You were born into this world to live that big dream. You know the one….it never goes away. And as soulfully deep seeded as it may be, in moments of silence it awakens inside of you and asks you to play. Are you listening? Or, are you still searching outside yourself for that “something” you think that will make you happy?
Today, do one thing that sets you free.
