Make your dreams come true!

Earlier this month when Mister and I were in Barcelona, we spent a lot of time walking the narrow streets and enjoying tapas while talking about life, our dreams, and where we want to go. It was an emotional couple of days of being completely honest with each other and ourselves about where this life was leading us. Since then we’ve been spending our evenings diving in even deeper with each other and it’s been such an eye opener about how in tune we are with each other and the dream-life we want to live. During one of our conversations I was amazed at how we’re already living out a piece of our dream-life and how we have made our dreams come true!

A couple of months ago I mentioned starting your own personal inspiration board and how having inspirational images tucked away somewhere or out in the open lets you know where you want to go in life. Most of my images are tucked away in a binder that sits next to me on my desk; always available for me to put more images and objects into. However, lately I’ve been using Pinterest as I spend most of my time online and instead of wasting paper to print the image, I just pin it!

Having my inspirational board available (as well as a notebook worth of notes) keeps me on track and shows me how I’m growing and narrowing my goals and dreams! I was once that girl who just drifted through life, but now I’m determined to make something out of it instead of letting it go by.

Are you a girl that just goes through life or are you making dreams and goals and seeing them come true? Do you keep an inspirational board? If you’d like to start one on Pinterest, send me an email and I’ll send you an invite, it’s so much fun to use!

But as great as it is to have an inspirational board and a notebook full of notes, it’s more important to go after your dream life! There is no point in having these images sitting around and a list of things you’d like to do in your life if you never actually act on it. So let’s put some of these things into action shall we?

In the comments below, if you’re brave enough or would like accountability, tell me one thing you’re going to do this week to make one of your dreams come true. Now, the first response might be a no or be negative. Don’t stop there, keep knocking and pushing forward!

What I did: I sent an email, totally put myself out there, offering to speak at an event next year! Crazy hey? Yea I know!

    Hey Lesley,
    What is Pinterest? I keep seeing it mentioned on facebook but don’t really know what you do with it. Can you msg me and give me a quick tutorial? I’m curious… Thanks!ReplyCancel
