I’m dreaming again.
For me, God has really pounded this into my soul lately.
I think for a long time I stopped dreaming. I don’t know why. I stopped setting goals for myself and stopped dreaming about the things I wanted to accomplish in life. It’s no one else’s fault at all but my own. Somewhere along the way, I just stopped. To be honest, I think I just got caught up and distracted by fillers. And by fillers I mean, distracted with things that didn’t really matter. STUFF. Things.
And I feel like God is stirring up something in my soul: DREAM.
There is so much that I want to accomplish and I feel like I’m being compelled to set up specific long term and short term goals for myself (which will come at a later post!) but most importantly, I don’t think I’ve ever felt more inspired or more encouraged to dream bold, outlandish, seemingly impossible, wild things.
Do you remember how it was when you were a kid? When people asked you the infamous, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And with confidence you said things like, “Astronaut!” Or “Princess!” Or “Doctor!” Or whatever it was you wanted to be. You said it with every bit of conviction a child could have, knowing without a shadow of a doubt that you would be what you said you would be?
It’s like God is knocking at my heart and gently reminding me of all of the dreams I once had…and it’s amazing! There are no excuses that can stand in my way. I see a road of endless possibilities. For the next few days, I’ll be setting some specific long term and short term goals that will help me refocus and push me in the direction of accomplish these dreams.
I will be blogging soon about the process of setting up short term and long term goals and what that looks like. Just so this post doesn’t seem super ambiguous, I’ll share some of the dreams I’ve had at one point but put on the back burner. I’m reviving them…
- Writing more.
- Working with women – discipleship.
- Mentoring young women.
And there’s about a billion more things. I’m going to be goal setting and diving my goals into specific types of goals (financial, spiritual, travel, personal, etc) and I plan on sharing what my process looks like. I’ll also be embarking on a cool journey in February too which I can’t wait to share about.
Needless to say, in 2016…I DREAM.
