Today’s Challenge is:

Day 6: Dream big

Spend the day dreaming. What would you do if money were no object? What do you think that the Lord is calling you to do? Write a mission statement for your life. Create a vision board or prayer wall. Make a bucket list. You can focus on just the current season or you can make a list of all the things that you want to do throughout your life.

I love to dream.  I love to set my goals so high that it is almost impossible to reach them.  And when I do reach them, I remember all the hard work it took to accomplish them.

I created a vision board at the beginning of the year (click here to see it). 

Those are really my goals for the year but I want to talk about my goals in life.  For those who do not know I have spent several years in the mental health field.  I have a master’s in marriage and family therapy and am in the dissertation phase of my PhD.

I would love to say that I am just getting this education for fun, but that is not really it.  I am getting this education because I want to work for myself one day.  If I could name my dream job I would be speaking to other single women, married women, and motivating others.  I would even like to plan motivational retreats.  AND I would like to write a few bestselling books and maybe a talk show.

Oh but wait, my dream does not end there.  I love anything beauty, fashion, and hair.  So on top of all the stuff I mentioned above I would like to start my own fashion line that promotes sophisticated yet fashionable clothing for women AND I would like to start my own beauty product line to include hair, makeup, and beauty products.

I know at this point you are probably saying that I am living in lala land.  These things are never going to happen.  And you may be right and you maybe wrong. I feel dreams are placed in your heart for a reason, to try to achieve them. And even if I never achieve any of these dreams at least I can say that I spend my life trying to move toward something that I really wanted to do and helping others along the way.  And while you’re on the road to reaching your goals, who know what you may achieve.

I would have never started my last blog, this blog, or my YouTube channel if it had not been for the dreams I wanted to achieve.  And in the process I learned about shooting videos, editing, writing, editing photos, search engine optimization, social media, and marketing.  I learned not to resent humble beginnings because it is in those beginnings that you learn skills that can carry you farther in life.

I want everyone to dream big AND ask God to help you achieve those goals.  You want to dream so big and ask God to help you get there that it almost seems impossible.  That way when God does get you there, you can see the power and the glory of God, because you know you could not have done it yourself.  So do not be afraid to dream, the alternative is being stuck where you are not even trying to go anything where and there is not fun in that. Untitled

  1. I love doing vision boards. I was surprised when my daughter asked if we can make new boards the other day. It’s a great activity. I’m a single mom too and know how difficult everything can be, but I’m so happy to see how positive and inspiring you are. It is so important to dream!
