Always a Dreamer

I have always been a dreamer.  Even as a teenager, I would write down my yearly goals and tape them to the bottom of my unicorn glitter globe to look at on New Year’s Eve. There is this part of me that always wants more.  

There are two obstacles that I struggle with year after year.

Sometimes it is difficult to figure out where I should really put my energy. Sometimes every day things just get in the way. Sometimes I end up putting energy into the wrong things. Sometimes, the goal won’t work or it just needs more time

      I could make a full list of things that I do with my time, but really, you don’t  want to read about that. This reasons is more than obvious.

The solution to this problem is figuring out time management. Where should I focus my time so I can use it to achieve my true dreams?

If you have read my blog before, you know the one dream that I have worked hardest at is become a writer. I feel like I am always learning and sometimes that the next part of the path is no where in sight. I just keep trekking along the highway to see the same prairie landscape that I know so well. I want to be finally ready enough to do something new like climb a mountain or swim in the ocean. I don't mind the prairie, but I want a bit of change.

Different quotes speak to me lately that confirm that this is the direction that I need to go. 


‎"I believe we form our own lives, that we create our own reality, and that everything works out for the best. I know I drive some people crazy with what seems to be ridiculous optimism, but it has always worked out for me."
-Jim Henson

"Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve." -J. K. Rowling

"Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it." -Bill Cosby

"In a sky full of people, only some want to fly. Isn't that crazy?" -Seal

‎"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world."  -Oscar Wilde 

Are you seeing the same things when it comes to your dreams? Have they taken longer than you have liked for you to succeed?

  1. Some words from Oprah...

    "What I knew for sure from this experience with you is that we are all called. Everybody has a calling, and your real job in life is to figure out what that is and get about the business of doing it. Every time we have seen a person on this stage who is a success in their life . . . they spoke of the juice that they receive from doing what they knew they were meant to be doing . . . We saw it every time Tina Turner, Celine, Bocelli or Lady Gaga lit up the stage with their passion. Because that is what a calling is. It lights you up and it lets you know that you are exactly where you're supposed to be, doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing . . . To live from the
    heart of yourself. You have to make a living; I understand that. But you also have to know what sparks the light in you so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world."
