Did you know that January 13th is Make Your Dreams Come True Day? Well it is according to a calendar I found online and that’s good enough for me! Actually as far as I’m concerned that should be the case every day but maybe that’s a little unrealistic for some. The Goal Watchers group is ahead of the curve on this as they’ve already been thinking about the topic of dreams for a week now and are ready to move onto the next step.
In all honesty I love the idea that we could put one day each year aside to either make our dreams come true or simply just decide which dreams we really want to turn into reality. You may be wondering why we might need to choose which dreams to make real, surely we’d want to do that for all of them. Well…..maybe not.
Do you really want that?
Have you ever dreamt about living in a big house with a large garden and having a different car for every day of the week? Now take yourself into that dream a little further. What would it be like to live with that every day? What might a normal day look like for you? It could involve a lot of cleaning, gardening and car washing! How many of the rooms in the house would you actually use and what would you have to do with the others in the meantime? Oh and that swimming pool you’d love, how many times would you actually swim in it compared to the hours you’d have to put into keeping it clean and ready for use?
Now when you make your dreams come true you may be able to employ some help with all this work or it could be that you’d really enjoy looking after and maintaining your property and gardens etc. In that case you know that is a dream that you’d love to make come true but…if the thought of sorting all that out made your heart sink just a little bit…..maybe you’d like to reconsider.
If you have already put in the work and decided which dreams you want to make come true then 13th of January is your take to take a step towards making that happen. It could be a tiny step or why not make the most of the day and take that one step that will make it happen or take you the best part of the way there.
- Spend some time dreaming
- Create a vision board
- Decide which dream you’d like to make come true
- Write a list of actions you can take
