I know more now than ever that I was meant to post this blog, every time I think I'm ready; something comes up to make me doubt that inspiration that I had. The closer I got to blogging it, things would come up like: you don't have the Facebook page prepared. Look at your life it's chaotic. This isn't about me though, this is something I was touched and inspired by.
A month ago I was reading "The Power" by Rhonda Byrne and one of the things she advised was that we take 7 minutes a day to just be with ourselves. I'm taking it one step further and saying why don't we take 7 minutes and allow ourselves to daydream about whatever we want.
I am hoping we all feel like we deserve that 7 minutes a day for ourselves. I also know how hard it is to focus without letting our mind wander, I have been studying up on yoga lately, I really am attempting to center myself for the 7 minutes each day. A lot of the time I have actually taken more time, depending on how inspired the daydream is.
I think we all need to take this time to really think and dream about what we want because the more we focus on what we want and have the happier we'll be. The happier we are the more love we can give out. Although I don't think there is anything wrong is dreaming of living comfortably, my daydreams are more about ideas.
What I'm hoping is that each of us takes this 7 minutes a day for ourselves, there is nothing wrong in taking a little time for ourselves. What I know will happen because it has happened to me, when I focus on a daydream, I find a way to incorporate it into my life. For example, I want to lose weight, so I have been daydreaming of what it would feel like to be healthy, then I have been reading blogs about runners, I bought a really nice pair of Nike running shoes. I am inspired to at least try this now... I want to prove to myself that I can do this.
I'm going to be designing a Facebook page for this and I am also going to create a tag line that will be a part of my blog each day. I am hoping this will inspire all of us and that we will want to inspire other people so that they can see that it is possible to have the daydreams we dream about.
