Do you recall those dreams you had as a little girl?
The dreams to grow up and become a ballerina or maybe even something along the lines of a doctor or lawyer? Did you ever stop and think then that those dreams were not possible?
Of course not!
When you were younger anything seemed possible, am I right? You didn’t let others define “who you were” or “who you wanted to be!” Opinions did not matter and you truly believed in “yourself.”
You wore what you wanted to wear and you walked with your head held high and you dreamed, you imagined, you had ideas and you were carefree. You would look in the mirror and cherish your freckles and you knew you were beautiful just the way God made you…..
I have been reflecting on my much younger self here lately, looking, pondering and wondering where that carefree girl is…
I have been desperately trying for the life of me to figure out why I have let the dreams that I held so dear to my heart.. lay dormant.
That little strawberry blonde haired girl is still me, even though over the years I have changed a bit of course.
But she is still me…
I have decided that it is the time that we look deep inside of ourselves and pull that “little girl” that we used to be out. We need to start believing in ourselves again and not letting anyone stop us from becoming what we have dreamed of being.
It is never too late to start something new, make a change and be “who you are” and not who others want you to be.
WHO CARES IF OTHERS DO NOT BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS OR THEY THINK YOUR DREAMS ARE SILLY!
You don’t need negative Nancy’s or Debbie downers in your life!!
There is no such thing as silly dreams and there is not anything that you can not accomplish.
Put on your big girl panties and seize the day!
We are all uniquely made for a purpose and a plan a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11)
God’s plan, purpose, and destiny for you, no man can change.
NEVER STOP CHASING YOUR DREAMS!
~DREAM & DREAM BIG~
YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE!!!
