Good Morning! As I was at my first job yesterday folding clothes, my mind started to wander off into la la land…I didn’t space out completely like I do in the privacy of my home but I started thinking about my current situation and how I really wished that I could be anywhere else. Having big dreams isn’t a rarity. We all dream of living the life that we feel is perfect for us but many times, we don’t follow through on those dreams. I have said time and time again that I want to be the internet version of Oprah. I want to inspire and motivate women like she has done and I want to do it through online platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and most importantly “Amore Luxe”. These dreams are as vivid and real to me as the computer screen that I am currently viewing but unfortunately, I am not completely sure what I need to do achieve my goals. I know that greatness takes time but everyday that I am at my job daydreaming about what I want instead of actually living the life that I’ve always dreamed of, I feel like time is passing by and each moment is wasted doing something that isn’t fulfilling me or pushing me closer to where I need to be.
LL Cool J said something very profound at the Grammys last night. He said “Dreams don’t have deadlines. Believe in yourself” and even though I know that to be true, I don’t want to waste any more moments solely dreaming (or daydreaming) about what I want and not actually taking the necessary steps to make my dreams come true. I told myself that no matter how busy I was, each day, I would do something that will help me get closer to making my dreams come true. Today, I have created this post which I hope will inspire me for days to come. Even something as simple as posting quotes or making that vision board that is constantly on my mind are the little things that will help me reach the bigger milestones in my life. I can’t make other people do what I want them to do or feel a certain way by coercion, manipulation or just giving all of my myself in hopes that I will receive the same. I can only be true to myself, follow my heart and hope that others can relate and be encouraged by the way that I live my life. When it’s all said and done, I want to feel content in knowing that I went hard in chasing my dreams and “daydreaming” was not the beginning end of the journey but the catalyst that set everything into motion. Sweet daydreams to all of you:)
Love and live luxuriously!
