I have a dream.

Don’t we all? We should all have many dreams actually. Dreams keep us young and give us something to look forward to or, at the very least, give us something fun to work towards which, in turn, keeps us busy, productive and determined…or

Something like that…

When we have a dream, there are a few questions we ask ourselves almost immediately:

  • how long will it take to achieve it
  • is it possible (and really, just about anything is possible)
  • can I do it
  • how bad do I want it
  • what will others think (ya, most of us still have those thoughts I think)
  • when should I get started

I mean, there’s probably a million more questions but these are the ones that pop up into my mind first.

Let’s kick this dream into high gear.

Here we go…..

and then…

Nothing happened. It didn’t happen. You did everything you were told to do and you fell flat.

So, Universe, what the actual fuck? Like, really? Is this a joke?

Nope. It sure isn’t. That dream? Not for you. Nope. But wait, before you start beating yourself up and wondering where you went wrong, take these 5 things into serious consideration because after all, it’s not all your fault. Please keep in mind, some of these may be hard to swallow at the moment and you’ll probably wanna cuss me out and shit but….whatever.

It wasn’t meant for you.

There is something better for you.

You’re free now.

How smart are you now?

Stand tall and proud.

You know, dreaming big isn’t for the faint of heart. Actually, taking your dreams and working your ass off to bring them to reality is friggin hard and not everyone is up for that kinda hard work. You were, you did and you are stronger, smarter and wiser for it all. Yay you!


Peace and Love
