Street art, taken in London last week. It got me thinking about dreaming big.
So many of my dreams have come true in the last few years. When I walk around the streets of London I feel the need to pinch myself sometimes! There's still a few dreams I'm working towards and I wonder/worry sometimes that maybe I need to knuckle down and be sensible. But I used to live life like that....and where did it get me? :)
And I know the reason I get the "want to run away" impulse sometimes is because these are the really, really big dreams. I'm trying to get a good balance between being realistic and being brave enough to follow my heart. There is nothing more wondrous, to me, than the hope and anticipation of waiting to hear whether your most recent jump off the cliff is going to mean you land somewhere amazing......
Most of my current dreams have been in my head for over two decades. They have been around since I was a child, wondering where on earth life was going to take me, hoping it would be somewhere exciting. The dreams that hang around you for that long, that still keep you awake at night and make you smile at the thought of them should never be ignored. Remember, the child you were was not afraid to dream big.
It's never too late. And you are never too young nor too old to dream big!!
Happy Monday! xx
