Behold the Possibilities

This picture reminds me of the heartland. Few things make my soul come alive like the lush fields of Illinois.

Gazing across the horizon, it’s as if the possibilities are as limitless as the eye can see.  There’s nothing standing in the way, just wide open spaces to dream, explore and create. Look at all that green!  It might as well be freshly-grown dreams, planted some time ago.  Of course on that day gone by, there probably wasn’t much to see.  No matter.  Memories of springs gone by were sufficient.  Seeds sprouted before, and they would sprout again, to be sure.  And now?  A wide expanse of vibrant green life rewards expectation.

So what’s the point, you may ask.  First, plant today so you can reap when the time is right.  Do what you know to do, and confidently wait.  Second, ask yourself, “Where can I go to refresh myself?  When I’m lacking inspiration, how do I regain what is missing?”  For some, the answer could be traveling.  For others, it could be going to an art gallery or to a sporting event.  We all need a reset from time to time.

Dreams: How Far Can You Go?

Muir-Woods-SDB.jpg

This is a picture looking skyward at redwoods in California at the Muir Woods National Monument. Surrounded by trees that stretched toward heaven that day, I couldn’t help but look up. Did these marvels ever end? If they did cease their ascent, I couldn’t tell.

That’s the way our dreams and goals should be. We should always keep dreaming, keep growing, keep stretching. If we dream like this, others will be inspired to reach higher and higher like the mighty redwoods.

One more thing about redwoods: They take hundreds of years to reach their full potential. We don’t have that long, but we must be patient with the time we do have. Then we will be strong and endure.

Thanks for reading!

"What's Your Dream" Look Like?

Sam's Dream Blog is trying out a variety of posts to see what inspires you and what gets you thinking and talking about your dreams! Of course, one of my favorite things is to ask and answer "What's your dream?"  These pictures stir up dreams for me.  I’ve read that a big key to dreams is that it’s all about keeping them in front of you. Listen to presentations, read materials on it, put up dream boards so that you never take your eye off your goal. "What's Your Dream?"  What does it look like? What excites you?
