I was always raised to dream big. As a kid, we were encouraged to cut out pictures of the things we wanted (yachts, cars, jewelry, handbags, etc.) and put them on our refrigerator. This way, we could see what we wanted in life every day, and every time we were in the kitchen (which was a lot). As I grew older and became an “adult” I realized that it’s harder to stay focused on your big dreams, when small dreams, like paying off your car and school loans, gets in the way. I work at least 80 hours a week so staying focused on the big picture can get hard at times. This picture totally inspired me though to reengage with my dreams and to remember that no matter how many, or how big they are, they are always tangible and attainable. If you’re feeling lost, down and like the plans for your life haven’t quite panned out, keep your dreams somewhere visible so that they’re always in the forefront of your mind.

This is one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite writers Langston Hughes (second only to Chuck Palahaniuk):

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
