When was the last time you allowed yourself to dream?

What is that secret yearning that you have kept hidden in your heart?

Daring to make your dreams part of your life is a gift to yourself that makes you smile, fills your heart with joy and brings you blessings that spread out into every part of your life in unexpected and magical ways.

When I was a kid, I loved to watch the clouds move from one animal shape to another as they floated across the sky. I would imagine all kinds of magical adventures and fairy tale stories with happy endings.

Later, when I became an adult, my life didn’t resemble those fairy tale adventures I had imagined when I was young.  There was a long period when I stopped looking up because I didn’t want to be reminded of all those wonderful possibilities I had seen in the clouds. I was unhappy and couldn’t see a way out. 

Eventually, I figured out that I had to make changes in me and in my life if I was ever going to have any chance of living even one of the adventures I had dreamed of for myself all those years before.

When I finally dared to believe my dreams could come true, I found the courage to make the changes in me and in my life that have led me here.

I’m blessed to be living a life more unexpected and wondrous than I could ever have dreamed of, from a place of joy I could not have imagined before.
