Making Big Dreams Happen

One of my sorority sisters sent me this quote the other day and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. I think it fits so perfectly with my word of the year: Breathe

make your dreams happen; God; religious quotes; Christian quotes; Christian blogs

I don't talk much about my faith here because I honestly believe that your faith is private. Shoving God down someone's throat is not going to bring them to Him. God is a huge part of my life and I'd love to share that with anyone wanting to listen; but I mainly try to share my faith by living it daily, not preaching it. He knows what is in my heart without my having to write it out for everyone to see. But today I'm making an exception because writing this post will be helpful to me. 

Lately I've been stressing over a few dreams and how I'm going to make them happen. A task made even more difficult because they are somewhat contradicting. Only one can happen at a time. And if one happens than another may never happen. Has anyone else ever had this problem? 

Sometimes I have so many ideas and dreams that it can be overwhelming trying to sort through it all. What do I actually want to achieve that is realistic and how am I going to get there? Like most people I struggle with self doubt and often talk myself out of big dreams and into settling for something smaller. I'm guilty of not giving it my all for fear of failure. Something about knowing you didn't give your best makes not achieving something easier to swallow. That's where I am in life right now. I talked myself out of a big dream and into a smaller, easier to achieve reality. To be honest with you I'm not happy with that anymore and I'm ready for a change. I'm ready to make a big dream happen.  

The past few Sundays I've found myself praying the same prayer when I kneel down in church. "God, tell me what to do and give me the knowledge and determination to see it through." It is such a comfort to know that He has already given me the ability to make my dreams happen. I just have to decide what dream I actually most want to pursue and make it happen.

  1. That is a great quote! You have to go for your dreams. This is something I've been struggling with too. It is so much easier to not take the risk of failure but we won't be happy until we know we've really tried.


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
