Can Our Dreams Really Come True?

It takes incredible power to not give up on you.

It takes incredible power to allow yourself and your life to become something different & better.

It takes incredible power to show up for yourself by doing positive things for your life; even if they seem “hard.” 

That incredible power is not something that magically appears one day. It is something that builds every moment you show up for yourself and consciously say “Yes, today I will take a baby step forward… for myself; in order to make my life better.”  It isn’t something that happens every day at first. You have to build momentum. You build momentum by remembering to repeatedly come back to AND doing it. It doesn’t have to be every day at first but it should be consistent. That consistency will grow over time as long as you don’t give up and you remember to Come Back To You.

Trying Occassionally then Doing It Sometimes then Doing It Consistently = Momentum

When I say “Come Back To Me”, I mean the part of me that is the real me that wants to live a better life and live my dreams. I “Come Back To Me” by actually doing better things in my life, with my life.

When I started working out, just for me to show up one day a week, every week, for a few months was amazing. Then I took a few months off and remembered to come back to me.Then I built up from there: twice a week, three times a week. Oh, this month I am going to try Jillian’s 30 day shred (which is 6 days a week.) Then the next month I only worked out 4-5 times a week. That year, I worked out 9 months and zip the other 3 months. Boy o Boy did I not feel good during those 3 months. It felt like a much needed break/vacation at first but to allow it to go on that long wasn’t good for me. I was able to see how the 3 months off affected me negatively. And that was okay that I went through that experience because years ago I was lucky to go to the gym, that I paid money for, maybe 3 times a year. So basically, 9 months on/3 months off was LIGHT YEARS ahead of 3 days a year! I currently workout 3-6 times a week and I am okay with that. I work out every week and have for the prior 2 years. Even when I was calling-off-work sick last month, I still did yoga once that week. That was a success for me. It wasn’t a failure because it wasn’t 3 workouts that week. It was a success because I was horribly sick and I worked out once. This momentum builds over time. Going from couch to Jillian’s 30 day shred is a recipe for failure. Start slow and build up. The important thing is that you try each day. And if you miss a day, you try again the next day. But don’t go a whole week without doing it at least once. And forgive yourself when you miss days or weeks or months. Just remember to Come Back To You. That life out there, that drama, that illusion, that distraction, that thing that numbs you… leave it behind and Come Back To You.

I am not just talking about exercise here, I am talking about all positive change.

Tomorrow is my birthday and as I creep up another year I wonder if truly living my dreams is even in the cards for me at my age. With all the conscious self-improvement I have done over the past 6 years, I can’t live with that doomed future. I can live with asking myself “Is it really possible?” I can do with seriously contemplating the answer to that question. I can also do with feeling a little sad about a possible negative outcome of my dreams not coming true. BUT what I can’t live with is believing my dreams are NOT possible and giving up. I Come Back To Me. I want to believe I am a Conscious Creator whose thoughts create my life. Hell, I know I am a Conscious Creator because I can SEE how I have created my life so far with doubt, depression, low self-esteem, anger and blame. If I can create crap with my thoughts, I sure as hell can create my dreams with my thoughts.

Can our dreams really come true? I don’t want to live a life where I think they can’t.

This is what I (YOU) have to remember:

I can’t live a life where I can’t see my dreams coming true. (Someday soon though!)

Just like my exercise regimen, it won’t come over night.

Baby Steps Forward.

Reach for the courage to DO it when I DON’T want to do it (for whatever stupid reason/excuse I have for not wanting to do it.)

The knowing that I am good enough as I am right now as I look forward to a brighter future.

The knowing that the Universe has my back.

I have incredible power in my exercise regimen and I CAN gain incredible power in other areas of my life too!

The knowing that showing up right now to write my 6th blog article of 2017 is better than the 4 that I wrote in 2016. {Momentum}

And as my Yogi Tea tag says to me today “If you let yourself be successful, you shall be successful.”

We all have this incredible power. We have been using it to create crap in our lives. Now is the time to focus our incredible power to create good in our life.

Your Inner Goddess/God is begging you to COME BACK TO YOU.

What baby step forward can YOU take today?
