Don’t we all have some neatly folded fantasies in a hidden drawer somewhere? There are dreams like skinny jeans that we keep working towards, we keep trying them on.
If you are of the persuasion that what you put in is what you get out… If you believe in the law of attraction… If you could fathom that we manifest our own lives through our thought life… then you may realize how important it is to dream. To spend real time and energy focusing in on the specifics of desires and aims in life. How they will feel, taste and smell.
How clearly can you see what you want?
What future reward drives your present work?
A few months ago, I made a collage of four pictures of things I wanted, along with the goals that I needed to achieve in order to splurge on these rewards. Last week, I hit the first of the four. I reached 200 followers between my two blogs. (THANK YOU!) For this, I’m treating myself to a tie dye hoodie from the Mod Sun merch store. It’s a happy, colourful purchase to remind me of positivity and perseverance that pays off.
It’s a small thing, but it illustrates a clear desire , followed by the work to achieve it. There are other- more significant- rewards.
The feeling of waking up refreshed and energized after you start taking care of your health.
The pride that swells in your chest when you take another step towards your dream job.
The sound of the steel lock clicking as you open the door to your first home.
The taste of a lovingly prepared meal.
The simple contentment of being in the company of good friends who took a long time to find.
These are all examples of things that you imagine, work to create and then enjoy.
Imagine. Work. Enjoy.
What can your mind come up with? What outcome inspires you to wake up in the morning and get to work? Are you enjoying the process of your progress towards your dreams?
If you are interested in learning more about manifesting what you want through visualization and action, pick up Mod Sun’s book “Did I Ever Wake Up?” or watch “The Secret.” Both are resources that I’ve used on more than one occasion and thoroughly enjoyed.
