I keep thinking about your dreams.
Some nights, I’m so excited about the dreams I know you dream that I can barely sleep.
I know sometimes your dreams seem so big they scare you into thinking they never will come true — never can come true. You try to hush them or you tell them they sound ridiculous. Sometimes the things you dream amaze even you, and then you get caught up again in the day-to-day of every day and the amazing-ness fades to gray.
Not so fast, my friend.
What if we spent some time together, making a bit of space for that dream of yours? And what if we didn’t just dream? What if we found some tools and learned practical steps to help us take the next step toward making that dream come true? And what if there were fabulous speakers and amazing meals and comfortable beds and wide open skies? And what if, perhaps, you spoke your dream out loud (or whispered it into the air, or wrote it on a blank sheet of paper)? And what if you got to meet in real life, some of the people you’ve met here online?
This has been my dream for quite some time. I’ve wanted to swing the door wide, open up the windows, and set a place at the table for you. I’ve wanted to give you a place to speak your dream out loud and hear what it sounds like in your very own voice. I’ve wanted to sit by the fire, or walk down the path, or skip a few stones and hear what you’ve got on your heart.
