Being here in London I feel so inspired by everything that I pass by and take in; the endless fashion choices, how people decorate their homes, the different boroughs, the greenery, and of course the social class. London is unlike any city I have experienced before and it has a pulse that energizes me.
I recently wrote about knowing what you desire, but I also know that we stop ourselves from actually getting what we desire due to our past or the loop constantly playing in our head saying we are not one of the lucky ones. I know how limiting these beliefs can be, because I have stopped myself from realizing my desires or even dreaming for that matter!
I almost stopped myself from dreaming just the other day!
I was enjoying an afternoon in London when I had a strike of inspiration and it stayed with me all day. I wanted to act on it immediately, which meant going home to write it out, but my role as wife and mother came first and before I knew it days had passed before I remembered my inspiration. By then I had almost talked myself out of writing about it, saying it was never going to happen anyway so what was the point.
Here I am in London living out a dream of mine and I was telling myself that something was never going to happen, because I was not one of the lucky ones!
Do you see how quickly and easily we can stop ourselves from our desires by one simple thought?
So in answer to my negative thought, I did the opposite. I dreamed away and I gave way to my desire. All I wanted to do was write it out and create a Pinterest board so that I could have a place for my vision to come to life.
The inspiration that hit me was having a retreat in the country filled with soft tartan throws and cashmere blankets, where food was beautifully prepared and tastes lingered on the tongue, that there would be a body of water to swim in, a hammock would beckon your body for rest, and candles would flicker every night in a warm glow.
A desire so simple yet I almost stopped myself from believing I was lucky enough to dream it.
Are you stopping yourself from dreaming?
Know that you are worthy enough to dream as large as you want to. The belief that you are not one of the lucky ones is a lie and should no longer be repeated to yourself.
Once you allow yourself to dream, you open yourself to actually receiving the desires of your heart as well as dreams even bigger than you ever imagined.
