Identifying your Dreams?
Ask yourself: what is my dream? Is your dream to have a dream home but you are living in an apartment building. Maybe you want to try something new this year like a new hobby such as dance lessons, cooking lessons, driving lessons or even simply going to a concert you have always wanted to go to. Or maybe you have just gotten engaged and you desire to have a dream wedding like most brides do at this time or maybe you been there and done that so you simply want a more natural lifestyle. Great! No dream is too big or too small. It is all about the journey to get there.
Write down every dream you have even if it feels dumb or not even possible. Write it all down or type it into your phone’s notepad if that is better for you. However, writing it down and having it somewhere you can see all the time such as a fridge or office board really gets you visualizing your dream and keeps the fire alive. Set aside 15 minutes or even 5 minutes of your time and dig deep. What do you want to do? Want to do you want to accomplish? What have you always wanted to do?
Push the Excuses
So, what is stopping you? Time? Money? Life being busy? Is timing not right? I heard it all. Yeah, I know these are things being said because I said it myself. I used these excuses because I felt that it was true. Even, I doubted myself ever getting to at least one dream. You want a dream home but just do not have the money to do so. True but should that stop you? You don’t have money for a wedding but should that stop you from trying for a more affordable version of that dream. Push through the excuses because you can do it. It may not be exactly what you wanted but it’s still your dream.
Even though I am a young parent whose life is pretty busy and I for sure do not have all the money in the world. I know that you probably feel the same. Those are things that defiantly pauses dreams. Notice that I didn’t say stops dreams. There is a reason for that, your dream is paused now but you are going to get there somehow and in some way. Which brings me to our next step.
Honing in your Dreams
Prioritise your goals and dreams. Decide on your big dreams and your small dreams. There is no limit to the dreams you want to go for. It is all in the matter of how you prioritize it. There are two types of people, the ones who plan and the ones who don’t plan. Figure out which one you are. Do do you like knowing that you have a goal that you want to achieve this month? or do you like to be spontaneous? Your dreams can completely be affected if you don’t have some sort of plan. Lucky for you regardless of which type you are there dreams still requires some sort of planning as plans can be a pain. Even spontaneous ones have to figure out where to do this dream even though the idea may have just popped into their heads.
You can take a few at a time that you want to do this month or this year and map out when you want it to be done at. This a great way to break down your dreams or goal into smaller accomplishes to get it done. You won’t see your list so daunting when it is cut down smaller. For me, I am a little of both, I have my dreams mapped but I am a little spontaneous when I happen to find a great dream on something I wanted to do anyway on sale.
So did you finished honing in your dreams? Alright, let’s get to the next part.
Affordable Solutions to Get There
Are you catching what I am sending? Don’t think your dreams are far-fetched because sometimes your dream could be staring are you in the face just not in the path you have expected. How is it a dream if you have to change it? Don’t think about it as a huge change or rephrased burden or even a cop out to what you want because it is not. Why sit there and feel defeated that you can’t get your ultimate dream home, your ultimate wedding or do everything imaginable to have a natural lifestyle? What good does dwelling on things you can’t grasp right this minute? None. It doesn’t feel good. Nor does it make you want to fight to get it. In most cases, it makes you give up. Let’s not do that and let’s keep your dreams alive.
You want a home, right? How about making your home that you are in right now your dream home. What do I mean? Any space can be transformed regardless if you own it or rent it. With simple decluttering, organizing, DIY crafts, IKEA hacks and furniture placements your home can be your dream home. It’s okay if it is a temporary dream home. You just have to be creative by creating your dream home. You may not be able to create a pool on the balcony but you can create a killer relaxing balcony. Something as simple as wallpaper, paint and hardware swaps make a huge difference to a space.
How about a dream wedding? There are ways to get your dream wedding at a more affordable price range. With simple tips and tricks, such as cutting the budget on things you don’t necessarily care too much about and transferring your money to the more important things of your wedding can help a great deal. Just because you don’t have all the bells and whistles doesn’t mean you can’t re-path your dream in a more affordable direction.
My last advice is to not give up. Giving up only makes us feel bad. It doesn’t really fuel us up or encourages us but to keep going no matter what is really the fire. It really helps us to hold on to hope and that is what everyone needs. The hope and desire to keep going. We all desire dreams and goals. Don’t let your current circumstances be the one to hold you back because it doesn’t need to be. It is all in the power of you. You are the sole that gets to carry this journey. Also, you are the one who gets to experience life and collect all the memories. You gain the satisfaction of getting to your goals and dreams. It will feel like a refreshing cold drink on a hot day.
