I woke up dreaming this morning, not sure where it came from but ideas just kept coming and coming. I felt so inspired! I have to admit I have these moments every so often, where my heart beats a little faster, my palms get a little sweaty, and then....I don't act on the ideas. Bummer. Id say one of my biggest fears is to die with all of these ideas/dreams that I never accomplished or even tried. Maybe you need a little inspiration to not let go of the things that make you come alive too. So heres 3 ways Im going to try and hold these day dreams tight, start acting on ideas, and make them a reality.
I've noticed that if I grab a pen and paper or my laptop and start hashing out my ideas; they get better and better. It's when I don't do it that the idea doesn't stick at all. So, this morning I woke up and grabbed my phone and wrote out my initial idea. I then thought on it, started researching things related and I felt more and more inspired to make it happen!
Tell someone about your idea who will let you think out loud, who will be honest, and who will hold you accountable! For me this person is my husband. I can tell him my ideas and he typically makes them better. Don't tell negative Nancy...the idea is very fresh and fragile at this point, we don't need a dream crusher. Find someone who helps gets your creative juices flowing!
After you hash it out, pray about it, and take the first step! This could very well be the hardest part. This is when all the little voices in your head come to life! Ugh the worst right? But what about...and what if...and what will she say...and why me? Fear. Don't listen to those voices. Every time you say no to those voices you're saying yes to your best self.
Im telling myself all of these things too guys. You were made for this, you are unique for a reason; be wholly you! No one else can fit your design. Dreaming can be hard! Do it anyway.
