Dream Big

I've got a goal board in my office.  Ok, it's in the closet because I recently redecorated and it didn't go with the "theme" of the room.  I'm going to renovate it (aka Pretty it Up) and bring it back out. I've got too.  I love having a visual of what I want for my life, what WE as a family want for our lives.  It includes putting God first, travel, a hot butt (not going to lie, it's on there), a healthy and happy family and some business goals.



It even has a news headline, which I made, that states that I sell Monkey Toes for a cool $20 million - not too shabby, right?!

I don't know about you, but I dream big.  REAL big.  So big that my husband often rolls his eyes at my ideas.  I'm ok with that, because I have been taught not to put God into a box.  Why wouldn't He want big achievements for me?  Why would I settle for selling my company for a little dough?  Why would I settle for a flabby butt? (HA!)  Why would I settle for no vacations?  Bring them on, I want it all for my life and especially for my family.  My kiddos even post some of their goals on it whenever they want to.

I believe that when you put it out there, God puts into motion and starts creating paths for you to live your dreams.  Live with integrity, make good decisions, stay true to YOU and they will begin to happen.  Don't try to understand your dreams, or how they will happen - it's not for us to understand, but know they were put in your heart for a reason.   Start moving in that direction, get them all out in a notebook or goal board (or even Pinterest), look at them and then get to work.

Faith without works is dead... James 2:14-26

What are your dreams?

I love your headline!!! Such an important message to put out there and then at least some of it has a chance to come true. The part that doesn't come true? Comes forth in even bigger, more vibrant color. If you just believe. And now, appropriately enough, I sound like a line from the Polar Express.

What a great motivational post! I love every word. A goal board would be such a great way to start off 2012. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love this of course! I thinkI should make that board...might keep us all focused in my household. Me... I want to be seen as a writer. I want to be published with multiple writings...or I'll be a nurse. Who knows. LOL.

I love the board idea, I must do that! So inspiring! What an excellent post...I am hoping that 2012 brings big things too. I am leaning on God and putting all my trust in him along the way.
