"As for girls, they must risk everything for freedom, and give everything for passion... loving everything that their hearts and their bodies love. The only thing higher for a girl and more sacred for a young woman than her freedom and her passion should be her desire to make her life into poetry, surrendering everything she has to create a life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in her imagination."
Roman Payne ~ The wanderess
I often catch myself day-dreaming and before I'm aware of it I'm off on an adventure dancing naked under a sea of stars. That is the beauty of the imagination! We can be transported to any place in any given moment, and the experience can be as real and alive as though you were actually there.
You see, I am a dream chaser, and I believe that everyone has the potential to live the life they dream of. Sadly our daily lives numb us so much that sometimes we forget that we once had dreams. We become conditioned to think that it's 'impossible' or 'unrealistic' to believe that we can do whatever it is that makes our hearts sing.
In our sweetest dreams and wildest imaginations, anything is possible. We don't get concerned with the 'hows' or 'whys' - the idea of the possibility is all that is needed to create the perfect fantasy. But when put back in the 'real world,' the obstacles are all we can see, and our desires seem so distant and out of reach.
Remember that it is only our beliefs that limit us. We all have the power within ourselves to change our deeply held limiting beliefs. It is up to us to create the poetry in our lives, and to make our life stories as rich and wonderful, and as utterly ridiculous as we could ever dream of or imagine.
So ask yourself, what are your limiting beliefs that are holding you back?
What is stopping you from stepping into that beautiful life that you imagined?
If we can remember how to believe in ourselves, and harness the faith within us to nurture and encourage our truest hopes and desires, those obstacles and boundaries will soon start to crumble. I promise you!
So go on. Get to it! Dare to dream.
I can't wait to hear all about it.
