Don’t Forget About Your Little Dreams While You Dream Big

I haven’t posted in a while as I took some time off from this blog to play catch up with life and other projects that are on my plate. So I want to take a moment to talk about the things we all could de to appreciate the journey we all are on for inspiration and improving our lives.

When you decide you want to pursue a big dream, you get excited and are ready to take on that goal, you’re focused in the mission to accomplish it and then all of a sudden you’re burned out and have lost your gusto. Well that was me this past week or two since I last blogged.

I realized I needed to take time for my self and go after my small dreams. These dreams consist of easy and obtainable goals. One of my dreams was to go on a shopping trip for a new wallet after work, and just be with myself.

My next dream was to take my son on a early birthday trip to an amusement park and the beach. Mission accomplished, we had a blast!

My little dream this week is to try something new! Just as simple as that.

I call them little dreams because we all think about something we want to do and accomplish. What makes life more fun is to give yourself a to do list of your little dreams and accomplish them as much as possible. Once you practice this, you’ll be surprised of how motivated you will get to continue on your BIG dream. Your mind will be clearer because you’ve raised your energy level to match the energy you need to fulfill your big goal. If for some reason you fall out of love with your big goal, don’t worry just enjoy the journey overall and continue to make little dreams and new big dreams will come true.

3 Steps to Feel The Fear and Move Forward

Valley of Fire Desert scene, quote text

Fear is one of many things we humans all have in common. We have experienced it more than once in our lives and we will without a doubt experience it again. But how we handle our fears depends on the situation presented to us. We do have choices. A choice could be to feel the fear and let it paralyze you to make a decision on something or it can fire you up to take action. Either way, you must decide how to handle what’s presented to you.

Your interpretation of the outcome may be blown way out of proportion because the mind turns on survival mode instinct to retreat from an experience, event or something that may cause harm.

There are many ways to help you overcome fear, here are 3 simple ways I have tried to help with fear.

  1. Take the fear for a walk. Getting outside or taking a walk to put your mind at ease will help you focus on what’s important. Then you can decide how to handle the situation in a better. Don’t fight the fear, feel it and acknowledge it. Then focus on a solution to the problem or make a decision to act on something with a clearer perspective.
  2. Don’t keep it to yourself. When you share your feelings with a trusted friend or family member you will feel so much better to get the worry or fear off of your chest. Talking about it with someone can help you put your situation back in perspective.
  3. Fear it and go for it. If you sit around over analyzing an outcome that hasn’t happened, and most likely won’t, then you have wasted all of your energy worrying about it. Let’s say if your fear really came true, at that moment you will probably react to the outcome much differently than what you pictured in your head. Unless it’s a life or death emergency than by all means feel the fear, but if it’s something you can handle, you will power through it!

 

I hope these tips helped and remember to do the best you can every day!
