A dream map is not a new concept. I’m not sure where I first learned of it. But I’ve done them since I was a teenager. They used to be pictures torn out of magazines and pasted together on a piece of cardboard. The idea is to give yourself a visual of where you want to go. My life goals have changed a lot over the years but the idea that beauty is up ahead has always motivated me.
A few weeks ago I found the last one I had done, maybe 10 years ago. And with all the turmoil going on now… I was deeply moved to see that so many of those dreams had come true. And that accomplishing pushed me to take the time to look ahead. What do I dream of now? It’s not so different than the last… just a bit bigger and better and way more assured that good is coming.
This might not be what motivates and encourages you. I’m all about visuals so having this image hanging on the fridge makes me smile everyday and dream about the fun path ahead. It is however, a great time to think about what encourages you. What makes your heart happy? What’s on your to-do list that you haven’t made time for? It’s a wonderful time to make the space in your life for those things that have called out to you for so long. Dreams can come true. I think for me, it’s the believing in the dreams that helps me take action.
With much gratitude, light and love.
