When I was little I dreamed about being all grown up and living on my own in a house that looked a lot like the castle from Candy Land.
I used to dream about NEVER having to go to school again.
I used to dream about living with my best friends, singing, traveling the world, and starting my own business…
This is the crazy part though. It’s happening you guys! Even on the most stressful days when I can’t tell which way is up, I’m reminded that I once dreamed about these moments. I couldn’t be more overwhelmed with excitement, scared out of my mind and grateful…truly, truly grateful.
Take a minute. This moment you are living in. At one point in your life, you dreamed about it.
Maybe your dream doesn’t look like you imagined? Perhaps it’s come with a few more complications than you ordered (isn’t it funny how we act like that sometimes)… but still, at the end of the day, there’s so much to be grateful for.
At one point in your life, you dreamed about this moment. You are, in fact, living the dream. Enjoy it. Relish in the moment. Keep going. There’s more dreams to be had.
