Attention!  This is not a dress rehearsal.

2019 is one month and two days old. Welcome to February. If you thought January went by really quickly raise your hands. 

What does this mean for you and me? It could mean one of many things:

You started with your eye on the ball. You were determined to achieve all your goals but you feel like you are beginning to fall off the wagon. Do not beat yourself up. Find out what is getting in the way, be truthful about it, move it out of the way and reset your focus, get accountability if necessary.

Let’s talk about dreaming. I dream a lot. Whether my eyes are closed or open. But It was not until two years ago that I gradually began to allow myself to really dream. By this I mean, Imagine the kind of life I wanted for my family and myself without allowing what I was going through at that time adjust my dream to my current situation . Believe me this part is HARD! I had to back this bit up with verses from bible that were strongly connected to what was in my heart and I declared them daily.

One of the things that helped me was watching my children talk about their dreams with excitement and so much faith. They had moved from just dreaming, they now believed their dreams so much that they started to share their dreams with excitement and conviction.

As the Year rolls by, and it will roll by quickly whether we like it or not. Allow yourself to dream. Do not allow your reality ( present, temporary condition) scare your dream away. Dreaming is free. What you dream today has the potential to happen tomorrow and this is what your present condition is afraid of. ( Being moved aside by a strong dream in your heart) They say the best things in life are free- I believe dreaming is one of them.

So let me encourage you. Dream! Dream! Dream! Watch, listen to and learn from the children around you.

When you stand at the end of 2019, may your dreams be part of the things you would have experienced.
