Don’t hold back. There’s not a day that goes by where inspiration doesn’t matter. Not a day where it’s not possible or doesn’t have meaning. There’s also not a moment that goes by when you’re not defining who you are. There’s not a moment where your dreams don’t matter and not a moment where your future’s set. Even in the most difficult times that can test—or put you up against your best—these are the moments where inspiration rests.
Our dreams can form our beliefs of who we want to be or where we want to go. They shape our understanding of what we’re capable of and set the ambitions that keep us going. Dreams are what break the chains of possibility and change our view of the world. They live within waiting for moments where you’ll take them seriously enough to make them into realities.
They can sometimes stay dormant lying in wait, searching for moments of inspiration to breathe them back to life. But, to fully commit to them might mean believing in something that others don’t. It might even mean giving in on safety and stability. But, they’re never more than just a moment away. They only need to be remembered, rediscovered, or even first imagined. Within risk can be the reward. Sometimes within risk is where it’s worth giving everything you’ve got.
There’s no limit to how big you can dream. But do you put limits on what you think you can achieve? Do you sacrifice a vision, a reason or a sense of being—for something, or someone else? The only one who can ever realize your dream, is you. You don’t need permission. You don’t need to ask for rights. They are yours and what will either make you, or forget you.
Embrace your moments and don’t let go. Dream big, but act bigger.
