We are dreamers by nature. The hallmark of human existence is imagination, exploration, and achievement. Humans have created amazing civilizations by dreaming and taking action on those dreams.
Sometimes the dreams are huge and real and sometimes they feel like wisps in the wind. And when our lives feel small and complicated, we forget to dream. It happens bit by bit. You start feeling pressure to keep up and then to pay for the lifestyle you have created. Despite making a great income, you still feel broke. Money becomes the problem, the elephant in the room, the enemy. Things can feel hard, like you are never going to get out of it, so you stop dreaming and stop taking action towards what you really want.
Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. ~Gloria Steinem
Dreaming is expansive and creative. It moves us forward. When we allow ourselves to dream about what we really want, we create compelling reasons to change the way we are doing things. We create a desire to have that dream, and we begin to take steps towards making it a reality.
When we don’t allow ourselves to dream, when we squash down those dreams and distract ourselves, we end up looking for the pleasure of the dream in other, often unhelpful and self-sabotaging ways. We might eat excessively or spend money to soothe ourselves; we might stop giving to others, trying to keep whatever we have. We play small, hoping that everything will work out and we end up feeling worse – more stress, more conflict around money and like we don’t know what to do. We miss out on the opportunity to dream and celebrate the achievement of those dreams.
