Just a little reminder that you have to actually take steps and move forward if you want your dreams to come true. It sounds so simple, right? It really is, but it really isn’t. Sometimes just figuring out what your dream is can be a difficult process. At least I know it was for me!
I’ve wanted to be an artist for most of my life, but then I spent most of my life not doing art. Doesn’t make mush sense, does it? I realized one day that if I didn’t get back to painting more often I wasn’t going to get very far. People don’t become ballerinas and sports heroes by watching reruns of South Park and eating potato chips that’s for sure. Artists are not born over night. They have to work out their artistic muscles and dig deep and practice. Dreams don’t come true unless you put some effort into them.You have to love them and help them grow just like a garden.
Slow down for a minute today and think. What is my dream? Do I have a dream? Is there something I have always wanted to do, but just never seem to get around to doing? Once you come up with a dream (it can be as simple as baking a cake or as complicated as making sushi) think of one step you can do today to get closer to that dream. Do you need to find that recipe? Do you need to find the right cake pan? Do you just need to get off of the couch and put away those potato chips? What step can you take right now that will move you a little closer to making your dream come true?
Sometimes once you start gathering the tools you can find the time and space to begin your project. Stop putting it off until tomorrow. Take those little steps today so that tomorrow you can take some leaps and bounds! I want to cheer you on!
Hey, just a friendly reminder, if you haven’t entered to win one of my paintings go do it now! Leave a comment, it’s easy! Painting Giveaway right here. I haven’t been commenting on the comments because holy cow I can barely figure out the plugin and I am afraid the silly thing will choose me as a winner. Can you imagine the controversy if I actually won my own paintings….Ohhhh the drama!
