The month of reruns continues. Are you bored yet?
Thursday I'm speaking to the local MOMS club about pursuing dreams.
So, I'm talking about how we have to become intentional and decide to DO IT.
We have to take little steps at first, and simply do one or two things that move us in the direction of that dream.
And once a person starts taking those steps, it's amazing how she then feel closer to it, like it is now HER dream, not just A dream.
I'll talk about how fear is a normal feeling, but we have to face that fear, because our dream exists beyond the borders of that fear. If we let fear control our actions, we're basically imprisoned, and nothing good can happen there.
And finally, I'll talk about the importance of enjoying the journey. You must find joy in each step you take, and look for and be thankful for the people you meet along the way, who help you on your journey.
So. You all have dreams. What keeps you going day in and day out? What advice would you give someone who has a little inkling of a dream in their heart, but they are afraid and unsure of moving toward that dream?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.

We are so lucky to have such an encouraging industry (being children's writers and all). I'm not sure this exists in other fields.ReplyDelete
