Go With All of Your Heart
Having a dream is what allows us to grow. It sets the tone and motivation for us to work towards something. Looking at my life and the way I am living, are past dreams which have come true. I dreamed of being married, with a loving supportive husband; to be the mom of a son and a daughter, (still can’t believe this one came true); to own a beautiful home (with a lake view – a dream in the works); and to be successful, healthy, and happy.
At what point can I honestly say, I am living my dream if I don’t take the time to recognize it? I can see my life changing and evolving, but realizing every single dream is coming true one by one is pretty incredible.
One of my dreams has always been to publish my own book. This is something I have always wanted to do, even as young child. I always loved to write. Stories, poems, letters, you name it. I remember actually craving the need to write. I have consistently pursued this in my life, because it gives me the feeling of satisfaction. Whether it is a list of desires or simply my thoughts in my journal – it’s a release and a different kind of venting. Some people choose yoga, or meditation, maybe it’s writing a song, or calling your mom up just to chat. I vent through writing. I crave picking up a pen, and just writing down on paper.
The ball started rolling when I began journaling way back when, as a daily practice of counting the things that made me feel grateful; journaling the desires I want to manifest; learning to let go of old wounds that seem to hold on. Writing always gives me a clear picture and allows me to let go of the ideas floating around in my head and leave a peaceful space. My journalling was transformed into a blog, Just Breathe Mama, that has allowed me to share anything I want. There is no pressure on me to have to do anything. It’s simply an open door to creativity and inspiration, which are two key components in my life.
Currently, Consciously Women (CW) has become my writing venture and my fulfilled craving, one that I am absolutely in love with. It’s yet another stepping stone towards my book.
My dream is evolving. But, it took this topic on CW for me to recognize that I am slowly creating my dream, without even realizing it.
I can’t tell you what my book will be about, or what it will look like. Hard or soft cover? But, it’s a dream I have in my heart, and there’s no doubt in my mind that one day it will happen. For now, I have pen and paper…
