Give yourself permission to dream. When we are little all we can think about is what we want to be when we grow up. We just know we will be able to do ANYTHING. What happens to that 5 year old inside us? We change, we grow, we learn, but most important we quit asking why. I know when my kids were small they had a “why?” button that didn’t turn off. It’s second nature for a child to question everything around them. Adults tend to conform to what we have been brought up to believe. This is not to say that every person out there is unhappy but when over 50% of Americans surveyed say they hate their job that, to me, is an eye-opener. One of my favorite quotes from Dave Ramsey is “If your vocation is something you love, you will be on vacation the rest of your life.” This doesn’t mean there won’t be bad days just because you find work you are passionate about. However, you will be on a path that is much more fulfilling and will bring you happiness you won’t find elsewhere. Just for a minute, think about how it would feel to wake up in the morning and actually want to start working. Instead most of us wake up saying a few choice words, hating the alarm clock. It’s a completely different mindset but one that more and more people are catching onto. When I was little I wanted to be a writer. I continued to write throughout the years but somewhere along the line forgot to be serious about it. This blog is as much about personal growth as it is about inspiring others to find what makes them happy. Give yourself permission to take a chance, dream big, and not only ask yourself why, but why not?
