You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, Darling.

"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, Darling."

I wonder how many people sat in the theatre this weekend, heard those words and, like me, thought, That's exactly what I'm doing.  Of course, my dreaming doesn't come with foreboding theme music or big kablooies at the end. At least I hope it doesn't.

July has been a month of risks for me, and August seems to be more of the same.  And for the first time, I'm not making excuses and slinking away.  I'm stepping out in a very un-Kristi-like way.  Friday I journalled, "I’m learning to take chances, to stop playing it safe.  Yes, I’ll still look both ways before crossing the street and still care about my 401K, but I don’t have to live timidly."  

I'm going to dream bigger with my work and my blogging.  How are you going to dream bigger?  



  1. I'm coming to realize that dreams are just our realities waiting to happen. We just have to step into them. Sometimes it takes maneuvering, hard work, and finagling, but in the end it's definitely worth it.

  2. Leila,

    You are certainly right. Sadly, it is easy to fall into a rut and take what is close at hand instead of challenging and growing. And it is easy to dream big but take no steps to get there. Thanks for reminding us that if we dream big and work hard, it just might happen.
