I don't let myself dream enough. Do you? I admit that I get stuck in the day to day hustle and grind and I have a hard time BELIEVING that dreams (they seem like fantasies really) could come true. But if I am not allowing myself to even think about my hopes and dreams, am I blocking them from happening?
Want to try an experiment with me? Why not for the month of March, try asking yourself What if questions?
What if I worked from home? Would I be lonely? Would I have more time for creative projects? Would the kids be less stressed? Would I be less stressed?
What if Pedar and I planned weekly date nights? Would it stress us out to plan them and spend the money, or would it be so great it wouldn't matter?
I am hoping that if I ask myself these what if scenarios, I will start putting more energy to either making them happen or accepting that maybe it isn't really what I want.
For example, I reached out to a landscape contractor and asked how I could get involved so I could learn more and see if it was something I wanted to really pursue. We met a few times, but he didn't have the time to mentor me and I didn't have the flexibility to allow for it. I am going to keep learning in my own yards, and maybe help a few friends, but for now, I am not willing to give that goal the time it needs. I need to give myself more time just for self-care before I get another job.
I guess my point of all this is, that I want to play, really mull-over, ideas and dreams, before shelving them. I think I may make things impossible in my head, and they might not be imPOSSIBLE. Dreams can come true, with a lot of work, but they do.
So, bring on March, it is a very lucky month after all! (wink wink!)
