Dream Clues

Dreams were meant to grow up and mature.

Explode with excitement.

Come to fruition.

But they don't all make it to the end or turn out exactly like we first envisioned them.

However, it's in the dreaming, trying and working that we grow and mature, no matter the outcome of the original dream.

I loved putting on shows when I was little.  My family was my audience and the living room was my stage.  I loved playing the piano. It's easy to dream when you are little.

But how do you go from being the little 3 year old with an imagination to actually doing what you always dreamed of doing or even just getting in touch with the dreams you had as a child when life has taken over and controls your time?

Ask yourself these questions and you will discover some clues:
  • What causes you to lose all sense of time and fear?  Listen to your heart in those moments.
  • What would you do for free just because you love it? Do it so well for free that others pay you to do it.
  • Who are you when no one is looking and you are totally unencumbered with doubt and timidity? That's a clue!
  • Use every present opportunity to practice at what you dream of doing.
So here I go again - doing another Portraits of White winter concert. A dream in the making. 

Please share it with your friends.

Then come and dream with me.
