“Some ideas are not born of logic and good sense. They are made of clouds and cobwebs. They sprout from nowhere and feed on excitement, sprinkled with adventure juice and the sweet flavor of the forbidden. The psyche moves from the realms of the ordinary and takes a delicate step towards the unknown. We know we shouldn’t and that is exactly why we do.”
― Brigid Lowry
What are your dreams? No, not the things you dream at night, but your dreams, desires and longings? What do you really want to accomplish in your life?
What actions have you taken to get your dream off of the ground?
If you’re like most people you haven’t taken your dreams seriously. You might be thinking dreams are for those other people, those people who have the time, the money, the …., the something you don’t have.
Your life has the greatest meaning, the greatest potential when you put into energy and heart into living out one of your dreams. Think about it, what makes you come alive most? Is it the work you are doing now? Is it?
Take a step towards living that dream. Maybe it’s making a small change in your life. Maybe it’s taking a vacation that you’ve been thinking about for years. Maybe it’s time right now to start doing rather than dreaming about your dream.

What are you driven to do? What ideas, concepts, dreams or thoughts just cause an increase in the flow of adrenaline in your heart?
We all have something that we are really good at. Many times the dream is undiscovered or lying undercover waiting for it to be unwrapped and released. All too often those dreams are not being realized because there is no courage to go with the dream.
A dream without action is more like a cloud. A few wisps floating in the air and the moment you realize that something should be done the opportunity is gone. A dream has to be worked on, beat on, sweat on, believed in, churned, refined, and lived. When you live your dream you will live life.
Years and years ago I had a dream. The dream was locked into the heart and mind and nothing was going to deter that dream from being realized. The opportunity would not have existed if no action was taken. The opportunity had to be created and that meant sacrificing one thing to get another. The dream was fulfilled. In the space of time that it took to execute on the dream I had the chance to talk to people and they said, “I wish I were younger and then I could have done that.”
Living a dream takes courage, it takes action, and it takes commitment.
What are you committed to?
Do you have a dream that you are longing for?
Do you have the courage to live your dream?
What steps would you have to take to begin living your dream?
“Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.”
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. Anatole France
Dreams can fuel life if they are acted upon. Take your dream, have you acted upon it? Have you taken the steps necessary to make that dream come true?
One reason dreams only live in the ephemeral realm of the imagination is they aren’t captured and recorded. A dream that only lives in the mind is the kind of dream that becomes fantasy. The dream that is written down can take shape and form and become real.
Some simple steps to take the dream from the imagination to reality would be:
1. Write it down.
2. Reflect upon it.
3. Develop it.
4. Act upon it.
5. Create it.
6. Live it.

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. Carl Jung
