Have you ever had a dream that you’re embarrassed to share out loud?
And I didn’t realize it until yesterday.
But I am very glad I did because I believe it has been holding me back from reaching my full potential. The fact that I couldn’t admit to others what it is that I really want to pursue meant that I was still unsure of myself & my goals (which I still am to some degree – it’s a process).
Well what has changed?
Now, I really want it to come true, so I’m going to spill the beans and leave myself feeling vulnerable in order to help get myself closer to my dream…I want to travel the world for a living.
There. I said it. (More or less). It feels really good to get that off my chest! I’m tired of feeling ashamed or worried about having this dream. If other people out there can do it, so can I! I’ve been holding onto it for entirely too long, thinking it’s a wasted dream and will never happen. But I’m done with that negativity. I want to get this show on the road! (pun intended).
It’s finally time that I start taking steps in that direction. Now that I know where I’m headed, I feel more at peace with myself than I had anticipated. I suppose that’s bound to happen when you act in accordance with your true self and your own beliefs. (Yay!)
Don’t get me wrong, there are still a million worries/concerns running through my mind. But when I consider the alternatives to traveling the world, none of them can compare. I think that’s how I figured out this was the real deal. Eek!
I hope this helps you think about your dreams a little and don’t be afraid to say them aloud. It may help give you the little push you need to take that first step.
