How To Seed Your Dream to Bloom
To get started, first you will need seeds, in other words dreams, goals, and desires. You’ll want to create a written list of things you’d like to seed into fruition. It’s one of the most important things you can do. It places your ideas and hopes in the physical, from your heart to written on paper. Like seeds in the soil are no longer just seeds, your written intentions are blooms waiting to happen. A planted idea is no longer a wish, but a concrete idea. Wishes rely on something “maybe” happening by something outside of yourself, but a well thought out, written idea is something solid, you, can work with and towards. So if you haven’t already, take a moment to write out your list of dreams and goals.
Have you heard the statement, “Faith without works is dead”? It’s right on! If you don’t put your seeds in the ground, you’ll have nothing but seeds full of potential. Same as your written goals. If you don’t take measurable action towards your goal, it’ll become dormant potential on a piece of withering paper. Make a plan, step by step, to accomplish your goals. Purpose to show up daily & do the work needed for growth. Water and weed your dream seedlings.
But, what if something happens? And it might. Just as storms come and go, even the frightening ones that cause tornados, hurricane, & tsunamis, storms in life also come and go. Adjust accordingly, take cover when needed, and keep going. Some things might have to be put on hold short term, but you don’t throw away your goals, ideas, or dreams just because an obstacle is thrown at you. Become fluid, like water, and find a way around it. Water always finds a way around anything in its path, so can you.
In 2018 I wouldn’t have imagined that my life would come to a halt when my youngest son’s dad was in an accident that nearly killed him, a month and a half into the new year. My life was on hold for nearly 6 months as I chose to be bed-side to him and care for him until he was well. Talk about an obstacle! Any goal I had written down, seriously, how was I going to work around that? But I found a way. It took a little longer, but I still was able to launch my new website, move into a bigger business location, start my blog, become a guest blogger, become a reiki practitioner, and learn a new service skill Lash Lift for my beauty shop. All the while, I’m a single mom, I have kids, a home and yard to care for, a full time business, and I was taking care of a bedridden man.
My best advice is to get rid of the idea that you have to do everything in a particular order, in a particular way, or in a particular time frame. Perfectionism kills growth because you’re too caught up in how you “think” things should flow, and when they don’t go as planned you give up. Stop doing that to yourself. Allow yourself to be more fluid, work with the seasons of your life. Work with the obstacles, and flow with it.
The new year is a good time to refocus your life on what you want to accomplish. What you put in you’ll get out. You reap what you sow, right? What are you going to sow this year? What dream seeds are you planting? What action are you going to take to water your dream seedlings? How are you going to weather the storms of life? Share your answers with me in the comments below.
My hope for you is that you will be brave enough to invest in yourself. That you’ll have faith enough to take action. That you’ll be dedicated enough to protect your dreams when storms hit. May you have all the courage and wherewithal to grow your dreams from the seeds they now are, into full bloom.
