"To me, it`s about dreaming in the day and in the night. Dreams have always helped me visualize my goals and aspirations. When I was a child, I could see me on stage singing my heart out. I could see what I was wearing and where I was going. I would visit that dream every single day and as I look back, my dreams kept me focused on what I wanted to do and the person I wanted to be." Dolly Parton.
Summer for me is all about living life easy and free. But around mid-August with September a few weeks away, I always start to think about stuff I want to do - things I want to accomplish - ways to make a difference in my life and in the world.
I already have confirmations of startup dates for running workshops and having writing projects due. More than that - this is a time I start to 'dream awake and asleep' - to see those things that are key for me to live with purpose - to reach for the passion to give back and set it on fire again.
Summer - laid back, fun, family, friends.
Fall - focused, purposeful, giving back, making a difference.
Dreams delight me. They stretch me, make me reach higher. They give my life purpose, meaning. They enrich me. To give hope to someone in the dark, thrills me.
Maybe because in the Jewish faith, the new year begins in the Fall, for me, September means new beginnings - new projects, new adventures.
Getting excited. It's gonna be one fab year!
Happy Thursday, Guys.
