What are you dreaming about? What intentions have you set for living the dreams of your life? Although we all certainly want to live the lives of our dreams, sometimes those dreams seem so big and insurmountable that it can be overwhelming. How do you stay focused and move forward in those dreams? How do you handle contrasting experiences that seem to be two steps backward in actualizing your dreams? You stay focused and move through those contrasting experiences by building a solid foundation on which to nurture, build, evolve, grow and allow your dreams to unfold in all their glory.
Foundation building can involve research, meetings, visioning, paperwork, people, places, money, and so on and on and on. Getting all the pieces together to create your dream can seem daunting and create uncertainty in even deserving them. Sure paperwork will most likely be needed as you want to meet laws and regulations. Sure other people, places, and resources might be needed. But the foundation I am talking about is the foundation of love, faith, compassion, and belief. Build YOUR foundation of ultimate belief in yourself, love for yourself, and trust in yourself, and as you build your dreams from that space, your foundation will allow those dreams to soar. Your unwavering foundation will see the contrasting experiences as growth opportunities rather than setbacks. Your solid foundation of love, faith, and trust will bring those insurmountable feelings into bite size doable tasks and fun tasks.

For the next week I invite you to build your foundation by:
Being gentle with yourself as beating yourself up for perceived failures, missteps, or misdeeds only keeps you in that space of lack. Honor those feelings, but don’t live in them.
Surrounding yourself with people who inspired and support you to be and live your best.
Loving you, others and life. When you work from a space of love, amazing experiences are grander and contrasting experiences are softer.
Mostly, my wish for you is a week of fully becoming aware of your inner power and letting it shine bright for others to emulate.
Until next time, reach for the stars, knowing your foundation is loving, trusting, sturdy, and fully supporting you!
Keep living big, loving big, and laughing along the journey.
