Dream Work

Sometimes dreams are complicated.  Sometimes keeping a dream and having the courage to reach for it has a whole lot more to do with hard transitions, letting go, and feeling unprepared and a bit alone in all of those things.  I know a lot about this right now.  I know that I want to do really really BIG things with my love of art making and my abilities in counseling.  But getting there seems to be a long road with no one who really truly understands what I am going through, and often, when it gets really complicated and it feels harder and harder to see forward motion in my adventure, I start to doubt myself.  I start to think about giving it all up, going back to what was easy, known, free of drama.  The problem is that I am not the same person I was when I started this journey.  When I decided that I would no longer settle for what was average, when I realized that I deserved an extraordinary life, I let go of a part of myself that I will never get back.  It was the part of myself that had made a home within complacency.  That part no longer exists, and I cant go back no matter how much I might want to in those hard moments.  For now I have seen myself beyond a lifestyle of settling.  I have visioned an incredible existence full of love, family, creativity, and fulfillment of my purposes and talents that I believe God gave me.  I was created to be extraordinary, and while I am still struggling each day to discover the fullness of God's Love for me and what my life was destined for, I cling to that truth knowing that revelation can be a journey of a million small incredible moments until when you look back you can no longer see the person you started from.

  3. I hope you realise how truly inspirational you are.
    I too am working towards being a counsellor, and also pursuing making something of my creative heart.
    Follow your dreams and love that God had taken your complacency and replaced it with eagerness

  4. Harmony,I believe God places those dreams on our hearts for his purpose, I think there is definatly a need for healing and counseling through art and creativity. I dream teaching of art n soul retreats. I just wish sometimes God would give us a map so we could just get to the place he wants us a little faster. Many Blessings, Deborah
