Did you notice how we always seem so focused on others around us, our relationships, our jobs, our financial situation, what others people think, their perception of us? In doing so, we always seem to hang on to what the other side is feeling, thinking and perceiving. In the process, we often let go of our goals and dreams. We seem to disconnect from dreaming big things happening to us. Why is that? Why don’t we just stop and ask ourselves What about me? What do I want?
Dreaming Big – Life Purpose
So many people nowadays seem so disconnected from themselves and others no matter how hard they try to keep the appearance of everything being so damn perfect. In our Instagram photos, our facebook feeds, you name it. We rarely stop and focus on what makes us really happy and satisfied.
Because let’s face it, everyone wants to feel happy. But how do you get to that? I bet most people you know are unhappy with their jobs or their relationships and just seem, well, disconnected from their life purpose, and guess what, sooo many people don’t know what their life purpose is.
What you want to be when you grow up?
Not all of us are talented or have clear ideas what we want to do with our lives. Do you know what you want to do with your life? I didn’t until recently. Ever since I was a kid I never knew the answer to the question “What you wanna be when you grow up?” I had no idea. I just always knew I want to be happy with my life.
And that is my big dream in life. Happiness. One dream that I will never ever give up on. But how to achieve that without possibly hurting others in the process of doing it. Because focusing on myself entails some selfishness on my part.
Dreaming big and not giving up on your goals and dreams
The answer? Priorities!
I decided to do something just for me which won’t impact anyone around me in a negative way but will still bring the best of me forward. The happiness of my loved ones is my first priority. If they are not happy with my decisions I’m not doing any of us any favors. I might follow my ideas without keeping them in mind, but would that happiness last? Probably no, since I wouldn’t be able to share it with them. So in my journey to fulfilling my dream I made a conscious decision to do it in a way it wouldn’t affect them negatively. Does that make any sense? One of the things I realized I want to do is help others. With my experiences and my current journey. I discovered a new passion, wellness of both mind and body, and sharing my passion doesn’t take away me as a mom or a worker or a friend.

I wanna do it too!
You can do the same. Choose to dream big. Chase those dreams. It can be done in a way that will not take away from your current life, but will only add to it. Let me give you some examples. Let’s say you want to travel the world but you have a family you are taking care
Let me give you some examples. Let’s say you want to travel the world but you have a family you are taking care of or no money. Travel in your mind and share those dreams with others. Make a blog or facebook page about places you wish to visit, find awesome inspirational pictures and dream away. Who knows, maybe sharing that particular dream will actually get you to meet new people who share your enthusiasm and you might end up traveling. Or, how about this, you want to be a famous actor. Volunteer in online groups with free book reading, make youtube videos reading scripts or excerpts. You are still doing what you love, and who knows, maybe someone will discover you one day. Are you really good at organizing but don’t have time and resources to form a business venture? No problem. Make free tutorials and eventually offer personal paid organization tips. Start small but keep dreaming big!
There will always be obstacles. Life will always get in the way of your dreams. But you can still pursue them by adjusting them. Make yourself a priority within your current situation. Yes, it’s selfish but it is doable.
So tell me What will make you satisfied? What has to happen for you to feel completely happy and at ease? What is your dream? Do you know your answer?
