Our dreams give us hope if we can embrace the gift of the dream.
You deserve to live your dream. For those of us who have been through trauma, and this applies for most people, we may feel that we don’t deserve the dream.
As humans, we have been conditioned to the idea that we have to earn everything we get. When we have had bad experiences, we tend to allow those experiences to redefine what we can now be, do or have. Sometimes we do this to protect our heart while healing, and sometimes the trauma we have experienced has left us feeling as though we do not have the right to desire anything anymore. The truth is that those bad experiences created growth in us. Part of healing is developing the knowing that you deserve to have the best, that you do have the right to your every dream, and that nothing is off limits to you, no matter what you have been through. Know this as truth.
If doubts creep in, or your belief in yourself wavers, then remind yourself that you are not your experience; your value does not come from what you do or what happened to you or who thinks you deserve certain things or not. You are worthy, precious and valuable just being you, wherever you are in your journey right now.
Your dreams are gifts from your highest self, the voice of your soul. They are an extension of who you are at your core. By following your dreams, you are giving voice to your purpose and your soul. You are also shifting the world for the better, through shifting yourself.
Now that you have your dream list, which dream speaks to you the most? What steps can you take toward this dream?
