I believe, "The first step to achieving a dream is dreaming it." Doing that alone takes courage.
One day you dare to and you do it. You dream it. You dream your dream. And it's beautiful. You painted in and out and around the lines and it is perfect because it is yours and yours alone and YOU created it.
Our hopes and dreams can sometimes take us on an exhilarating journey. Sometimes the journey is tedious and hard. Whatever the path might be we are happy because inspiration has picked us up on it's wings and we are flying with our dream in tow.
Finding clarity when the ride is not so smooth is key to maintaining your spirit. So how do you find peace midway through from actively making your dream come true?
One of my favorite things to do is going outdoors. I happen to have a dog so that helps me get out and connect with nature. There is something about the simple beauty of being outside that helps ease my mind. I try to put everything else on the back burner in order to immerse myself with Mother Earth. Not only does it cost absolutely nothing to head outside, it's also one of the best things you can do.
The real trick is leaving your phone and all other electronics at home. This one might be tough for a lot of us, but it is the only way this can work. Give it a try. Your spirit depends on it.
