Dream big, work hard, love long.

After a lovely Halloween weekend with some great friends, I am tired, in a candy hangover and feeling so very blessed. It’s not often you find a group of people who truly become family.

This week’s motivation is more about dreams than health. I had a developing thought process through several conversations this weekend about dreams, what I value in a place I live and where I want to do. As much as I love interesting and new places, a city is worth staying because of the people rather than the amenities. A dream isn’t as valuable if it doesn’t involve the important people in my life.

It’s a jumble of thoughts that aren’t worth the attempt to write cohesively, but I think the basic idea is this:

Dream big, work hard, love long.

For me, these lose their value when separated. Big dreams don’t mean as much when separated from people I love, and they don’t happen without hard work. Working hard for something that I don’t love is miserable. The most important things are so because they seem out of reach and require work to get there.

So! For my non–existent word of the week and weekly challenge:

This week’s word: dream.

This week’s challenge: write down some of those dreams. Life dreams, health dreams, family dreams, out–of–reach dreams, impossible dreams. I want to get them out on paper and spend some time thinking about them. Maybe some of them stay in the dream phase, but some could become goals with steps to begin now.

Do you have dreams that could use some attention?
How do you motivate yourself to pursue them?

dreams don't work unless you do

create your life

good things come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle

the best way to predict the future is to create it

turn intentions into actions

come alive and go do it
