Shared Messages from the Universe - Become Your Dream

It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me and remind me of something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead, the message conjures emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. I see them on billboards, in magazines, store windows, church plaques...everywhere. I secretly call them soul whispers.

The messages are all around us
Become Your Dream
As I was reviewing photos from last year I came across this picture. The artist, James De La Vega is responsible for this message and public artwork. He often walks the streets of NYC and leaves his mark of inspirational messages on everyday items or simply with chalk on the sidewalk. This day, he chose someone's trash - a tossed mattress.

What's your dream? Are you living it?

Seriously, what Is YOUR dream?

Have you written them down? Do you dream often? Do you have really big dreams? Yes, the kind that you can't reach right now... Do you have smaller dreams? Ones that are obtainable.

Do me a favor, take out a piece of paper or your journal and your favorite colored markers or pens and write them down. Make your list of dreams. Don't edit yourself - this isn't a "I would if I could" list. You are writing them down your dreams so that you can see them all in one place.

I know what you're thinking - that voice inside of your head is loud (work through it, ignore it, put it on hold, tell it to step aside): "BUT I have a day job, I have family obligations, I don't have any money, these will never come true. Blah, blah, blah."

Write down your dreams, no matter how big or small.

Write them down. They are too important to live in your head.

Do you have your list? Are you smiling? These dreams having been living your head since you little, right?

Now, big step here...pick one. Yes, it is okay to pick the easy one.

What can you do today to live that dream? How can you take one step forward toward making it come true?  I dare you to take that one step. Just one step today. Tomorrow you'll take another step. And, next week you'll take another step. And, you'll continue to takes steps toward becoming your dream.

Do me a favor, remember to enjoy the journey along the way.
