Some people knew what their dream was from the time they were very young. But you may not even realize what your dream is. That’s okay. Some dreams take longer to make themselves known.
For example, if your dream is to become a lawyer and other people in your family are lawyers, then your dream probably made itself known to you early in your life.
But if you come from a family of lawyers and your dream is to be a modern nomad, then your dream may have trouble coming forth because it’s so far from what you already know.
You might have believed that family members would make fun of that desire. So you might not have given it your full attention.Open your mind to all possibilities and listen to your heart. It may take time for your dream to make itself known, but it will be worth the wait.
Whatever your dream is, embrace it. Don’t judge that it’s too impractical or flighty. Yes, there are times to be practical, but your dream may not be as impractical as you think at first.
So, when it tries to come out of hiding, don’t stuff it back into the dark recesses of your mind or emotions. Give your dream permission to come to the forefront and stay there.
If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do? Would you quit your job and take off traveling?
Well, money is an issue, so you have to figure out how to get around the financial problem to make it possible for you to hit the road.
That will mean giving up some comforts that you enjoy. That’s inevitable. But when you’re out on the road, the things you gave up will seem inconsequential in comparison to the adventure you’re having each and every day.
And what if you don’t fulfill your dream? What are the consequences? You could end up later in life wishing that you had taken more risks and fulfilled your dream.
Fulfill your dreams. Create your own memorable spaces in your life.
