Does it feel like your life got put on hold in 2020 — and now 2021 is feeling like more of the same? You’re not alone!
Maybe you had to cancel a big trip to Europe, put off exchanging “I Do’s” or launching your own business. Pressing pause on big plans, hopes, and dreams since early 2021 has been a reality for most of us. That’s why today, we want to challenge you to get back to dreaming, planning and expecting great things.
The thing is, dreams, goals and plans are imperative to a happy life. They motivate us to get off the couch and to feel excited about the days, weeks and months ahead. So this weekend, make a date with yourself to dream – BIG!
Grab a journal and …
- Write down any and all dreams you have swirling in your head for the next 1-5 years. What do you want your life to look like in 1 year, in 3 years, in 5 years?
Write out your personal dreams (“I want to buy a house” “I want to vacation in Greece” “I want to learn how to play the piano”) and any professional goals (“I want a promotion” “I want to change careers” “I want to retire”). Keep in mind you’re worthy and deserving of everything you desire – so think big!
- Choose 1-3 dreams that make you the most excited, and write down 3 action steps you can take right now to see those dreams materialize. Even visualizing yourself being, doing and having it counts!
- Write your top dreams on note cards or Post-its, and display them around your home. It’s important to give them attention every single day to keep you excited about them and nudge you to take action.
2021 may not be off to the greatest start, and these still uncertain times may keep you from being able to do some things right this very second, but you can still keep dreaming, planning and expecting great things for your future.
So allow your mind to wander, and reap all the happiness and joy that comes along with it.
Good things are in store for you!
