Posts Tagged ‘Dream Big’
I’ve been dreaming since … well, as long as I can remember. I almost died at 7 months old from chicken pox, and clearly remember the events surrounding that despite not being able to remember other things that happened last week. lol
What I remember most about life as a kid was dreaming about what it was like being other people. My insatiable curiosity about other people took me into their energy, into their worlds. As I grew older, I wondered about the people who lived in ‘those’ houses…big houses that did not match ours. What did they know we didn’t? I wanted to know.
I spent most of my early life in my quest to find out, and ultimately did learn what they knew we didn’t. And, the secret is… they had a bigger vision of possibility. They believed in bigger dreams, bigger possibility and followed it.
You can too…open your heart and mind WIDE and go! I did, and it has taken me on amazing adventures… let’s dream bigger together!

I had not heard the great news that she ‘reportedly’ sold her company for an estimated $120 million, but it certainly didn’t surprise me. I have a distinct ‘sixth sense’ around business and what will work well for a person – what is in true alignment with the person’s purpose. When I saw Bethenny Frankel’s Skinny Girl margaritas a couple of years ago when she was on The Real Housewives of New York, I immediately thought, “That woman is going to be very, very rich one day.”
Our friends knew of this so-called prediction because I had been talking about how purpose unites with passion in the most amazing, seemingly haphazard ways. Similar to Sara Blakely who created Spanx as a result of her own need, so did Bethenny.
I had used Bethenny’s Skinny Girl margarita as an example of how her passion for living life without sacrificing perfectly reflected her creation of a margarita with all of the taste without all of the calories.
So, there we were in Bedford, Texas celebrating Bethenny’s company sale and how she has responded to the call of women everywhere who wanted all of the flavor without all of the calories.
Tonight, on her show, Bethenny Ever After, promos say the details of the multi-million dollar deal will air on the season finale.
If you ever wish you could ‘dream bigger,’ then perhaps tuning in will give you fuel for your creative fire.
Congratulations, Bethenny, Jason, Bryn and the team! Can’t wait to see what else you will create.

Hey everyone. Thanks for the emails and words of kindness. Many of you were concerned about me because I haven’t been posting. The good thing about getting your emails is that it shows me that I post regularly enough that when I DON’T, or perhaps without a mention of why I am not posting, it alerts everyone that something may be wrong.
I am alive and well. No sickness here. I have just been really busy this week though I have many blog posts rolling around in my head.
I am finishing up my Ph.D. and starting my dissertation research, so I have been in that creative space and it is taking a lot of my creative energy and focus! Send your prayers, energy and love to me as I finish this up. My goal is to give this to myself for my birthday this year.
I was thinking about the last time I did this. I was 28 and a half and I had two years of school left to get my bachelor’s degree. I had been fiddle farting around for EIGHT years trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Before that, I had changed my major repeatedly…journalism, English, teaching, psychology. Well, the truth is that I knew what I wanted to do… I wanted to get my degree in social work and coach/counsel people, but all of the social work classes were during the day and I had a day job.
And, so I drifted. I focused on work, work, work working 60 to 80 hours per week.
Then, at around 28 and a half, I just woke up one day and thought, “I’m going to finish my degree before I turn 30!” I took action, signed myself up for as many classes as I could get. Figured out the money piece and went for it.
I took between 18 and 21 hours per semester every semester while working 60 to 80 hours per week so I could meet that goal. I didn’t think about it (thus I had no FEAR), I just did it. And, I hit the honors roll repeatedly, too. When I look back on that time, I don’t think of myself as being ‘great’ or ‘above average,’ I realize I just made an intention and followed through with it. Things happened to support me along the way, too.
For example, one semester I didn’t have the money to pay for my tuition. I was sitting in my office at work pouting about the situation, and admonishing myself for not saving more. I had taken a bunch of mini-vacations that left me short. I paid my way as I went, and I was short by about $1,500. Of course, I was MOST disappointed I would not meet my goal of graduating by my birthday. As I sat there, my boss at the time wandered in and asked me what I was doing and why I had not left to go register. At the time, the controller of the company and I were both finishing our degrees and she had already left to go register.
I told him the truth. I didn’t have the money, and so I wouldn’t be going that semester. He said, “What? Wait right here.” And then he left for a few minutes. I just sat there pouting. He came back and threw a check across the desk at me, “Here! Now get your ass over to that school and register!”
I moved as fast as I could to scramble and get over to the school in time. I never forgot that kindness, and, yes, I did hit my goal of graduating (with honors) by my 30th birthday.
A few months ago, I had the same thing happen. I was just talking to Mark and in the middle of it, something inside of me said, “It’s time to finish your degree.” I had completed most of the coursework but had not even sent it in! I realized I had great anxiety…as I shared in an earlier post, anxiety follows me when I get too far ahead of myself or when I am in a situation where I feel uncomfortable (usually because I don’t know how it works).
So, I got right up and went and put everything in order and I put down a schedule that would work and feel I can complete it (by working MANY hours per week) by my birthday. So far, so good! I feel energized by the coursework, which seems to be a blessing every day I go to it. I am realizing how much I have learned from Spirit and every day I get validations in my coursework that these tools are grounded in psychology and holistic practices that support people in being all they can be.
An intention has amazing energy tied to it. It can carry you along when you, yourself, don’t even know how you will make it. Whatever you desire, you can have it. Start today with an intention and watch how you will be guided, supported all the way to its creation!
Over the years, I have often wondered why one person can heal almost instantly and miraculously while another one gets an instant benefit and then lapses back into dis-ease. My questions have yielded various answers from not maintaining the ‘vibration’ of wholeness to ‘reaching back into dis-ease’ with one’s thoughts. They are essentially the same thing, but I realize that some people seem to have a mindset that naturally looks for what is wrong while others naturally have a set point toward what is possible.
In my quest to unravel the riddle of all humanity, I have wondered if people can change. And, if they truly can, then is this most beneficial? I wonder if we are meant to just ride the rail of whatever we are or are we supposed to move and evolve.
What I’ve observed over a lifetime is that we can never get away from what we are. What we are, though, is constantly changing, flexing with our reactions to our experience. But, in this, there is a constant…the soul is always what it is and never deviates from what it is and how it expresses. This is the highest and best inside of us, and it is always guiding us like a light within.
I see soul gifts that reflect the being’s soul wisdom, and this wisdom is always seeking to serve. No matter how closed off the person is, this energy is seeking its expression.
The rest, I believe, is up for change. We, as humans, are some of the most unevolved creatures with the most amazing ability to adapt. We could evolve quickly and yet if we remain trapped in our humanness, we seemingly evolve at a snail’s pace.
As humans, we have one function that allows us to rise above. It is our ability to consciously connect to divine…higher consciousness. We can literally bypass the smallest part of us and choose to go beyond; we may choose to expand into all that is and all that we already are.
This is such a comforting thought…to realize that if you believe you can, you can. With a simple shift in focus, a change in thought, we can literally make giant leaps in consciousness.
Dare to believe and think you can!
