On a plain white piece of copy paper, hanging on my whiteboard, I have a “Dream List.” What the heck is a dream list, you may ask? It’s a list of the places I want to go, the things I want to do, the accomplishments I want to accomplish, and the fears I want to conquer.
I keep it in plain sight so that I can’t escape it. It’s this big bold reminder that “YOU’VE GOT DREAMS GIRL! GET TO WORK!” (It doesn’t hurt that I wrote it in highlighter green and orange…)
So what’s this have to do with you? Aren’t dreams kind of… personal?
Here’s my theory: when we share our dreams with the world we’re putting ourselves out there — like super duper vulnerable. 1) People could judge you for wanting something they don’t understand 2) If you don’t reach a certain dream you’re going to look like a failure 3) Writing them out and then sharing them makes them so real — you can’t really hide from them anymore
So here I am — putting them out there. And I’d love to hear what yours are too! Or if you’ve been to these places, done these things, or accomplished these tasks — I’m all ears for advice and pointers!
