Toolbox Tuesday: Dreams
Simple enough! I'm not talking about the get in bed and enter sandman dreams. I'm talking about the waking dreams that drive us forward in life. Everyone I know has one dream or another. Which means you probably do to! You might have many small dreams which, upon accomplishment, require making bigger and grander plans; or you may have a big-shiny-dream which requires making many small steps to get to.
I'm a big dream kind of girl. My dream is to become a bestselling author. I keep this first and foremost in my mind all day, every day. I don't think any decision I make is made without thinking about how it will impact my dream.
I, for one, think it's incredibly important to have a dream that you believe is legitimate and achievable within your lifetime. It's having something to want and look forward to that keeps us on the right path, plugging forward when fate starts to throw random road-blocks in front of us. Without this drive and desire, we plod through life and, while we may make startling achievements, I don't think they are as sweet because we didn't desire them in the first place.
After all, does cake more satisfying when you've been wanting it for a month or if someone just randomly hands you a piece?
