Dream On!

Own Your Passions

The first step in manifesting your dream is commitment. Pick up your dream with both hands, try it on for size, fall in love with it and know that you can stick with it through thick and thin. Wake up each day knowing that you are one step closer to your dreams and decide what steps you will take to bring your dream to fruition.

Start with small steps—as you move closer to your dream your pace will quicken and your stride will grow. Reaffirm your commitment and the Universe will answer back with unique opportunities and situations that will align you perfectly with each step toward realizing your passion.

Your dream has been growing inside of you since you were a young child, waiting for you to nurture it and shower it with love. Give your dream a voice, tell your friends about it, journal about it, identify the resources you need to make your dream come true.

If you have always wanted to be a photographer, then go out in the world taking pictures. Let your heart tell you what inspires you and begs to be captured by your eye. If you have dreamed of being a singer, then belt out your favorite lyrics in the shower and when you’re all dry and squeaky clean, go out and sign up for a local theater audition.

Your dream belongs to you for a reason. You have been given the innate ability and talent to make it happen. Just let the universe know that your dream is here to stay and that you have made space for it in your life…then pinch yourself and realize that your dreams are coming true!
