Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone who has responded to the A-Z Inspirational Blog Posts. If they only help one person then that’s enough for me to keep writing them, however, it’s good to know there’s more than one person out there being encouraged by them.
I could have chosen a few words for D, such as, devotion, dedication, determination, however, I wanted to go with one of my favourite words … Dreams.
What would life be without dreams?
I’ve always lived by the rule that you can live your dreams if you believe enough. If you truly follow your heart and believe. There are many dreams that I’ve not achieved yet. But I’m not giving up as I truly believe dreams are what keep us going. Being a mum of two girls, my life has been surrounded by princesses, in fact, we were just at the cinema watching the new Cinderella movie this morning. Which was so lovely. A beautiful film that is so inspirational in following the words of courage and kindness … two things I totally believe in. Throughout all the Disney films the encouragement to follow your dreams is paramount in their messages. And yes, you may be thinking but they are Disney films … not real-life. And this is true. As we get older we are faced with challenges, barriers and circumstances that make us think, ‘What the hell is this all about?’ But if we keep thinking like that, how can we move forward? How can we get over obstacles in our life if we focus on them?
In fact in the words of Walt Disney
We must dream big, and we must never let go of these dreams. Dreams are what make life worth living. Dreaming makes the world possible. It makes you possible. Dreaming allows you to come out of your comfort zone and take those steps that will allow you to live the life you deserve. As I said last week, ‘What is the alternative if I don’t have the courage …’ What is the alternative if you don’t follow your dreams?
Life is about survival, so we focus on what needs to be done, to survive. We allow our life to be taken over by mundane tasks, we put our dreams to the back of our minds and we don’t allow them to come forward, we block them out. But if you did something daily, one little thing that could take you towards your dreams, what would it be? What could you do? Always remember, the little steps count … and we must take these steps to reach our dreams.
Here’s a few more quotes to keep you focused on your dreams 🙂
And last but not least, one of my favourites, so much so I have it on my wall above my desk! You can see it here …
Have an awesome week following your dreams!
Sending you lots of love and happiness
