As you can probably guess by now, I’m a big dreamer. I would presume you are too if you are here enjoying my art! I honestly don’t know how to function without dreaming involved!
Dreaming is like fuel! Without vision, desires, hope… we flounder! I think dreaming is healthy for the heart and helpful for the head. The majority of my artworks have an element of dreaming tucked inside. Today I put together a little collection images that really shout,DREAM BABY, DREAM!
There’s a kind of dreaming that can be so wonderfully good. It can lift you up and over obstacles. Whisk you away to a whole new experience! Propel you into new discoveries! Then there’s a kind of dreaming that will tear you apart. It’s the worst-case-scenario, the probably-won’t-work-out, the disaster-is-around-the corner kind. Those dreams come with a list of all that could go wrong. And then here’s a second list of all the opportunities for failure! Don’t spend time with the ones that will drag you down but dive into with the good ones.Take the flight you were made to take!
The lifestyle of dreaming and believing is one that lifts you up above the current circumstances and worries of life. It takes you to a place where impossibilities become possible. There is much to be discovered there, but only the curious and brave will get there. How about you? Will you let yourself be lifted out of the discouragement of “nothing has happened yet” and into the delight of “anything is possible”?Rise with wonder, my friend. Arise!
Dreams often come in pieces. Not broken pieces, but little, significant pieces that create a bigger, magnificent story. “Dream-pieces” are designed to be collected, searched out, and fit together. Walking around with pieces of a dream can feel uncertain but it’s actually a wonderful mystery.What does this quirky piece mean, you cry out inside?Why do I care so deeply about this little thing, you gasp? It can happen in a second or a decade, but the pieces of your passion will pull together. You’ll discover what you are created to do.Don’t give up unpuzzling the mystery of your dreams!
Once you start to understand who you are, and what you are capable of beyond your own strength and ability, curiosity will grow. As curiosity grows, courage will gather inside you. And you can’t help but take that glorious leap of faith! It will be wild and chaotic, complicated and outrageously delightful! The outcome remains uncertain, but at this point it doesn’t really matter because youalready succeeded.You recognized the star within yourself, and it led you to launch into something big!
Dreamers come in all shapes and sizes. But they all have a couple of things in common. They have a posture ofDetermined to Try, a sense ofAnything Can Happen, a mindset ofI Think I Can,a resistance towardDoubt will Drown Me, and a perspective ofAll Things are Possible. Dreaming is contagious. Just like childlikeness. Just like curiosity. Just like fire.Feed that fire within you today and fly towards your dreams!
I could go on for hours about dreaming, but it’s your turn to dive into your imagination and dream up your future. I’d love to know, what are you dreaming about lately? Which artwork speaks to where you are at with your process? Leave a comment or send me an email to let me know.
