As adults many of us stop dreaming. We get caught up in everyday life, our kids and families, our jobs and the things that need to be done day to day on our to do lists. Many of us forget to stretch our imagination and dream… dream about what’s possible for our lives, what we might want to do and achieve and how we actually want to live our lives – our dream lives.

We invite you to give yourself space to dream, to imagine what if…

Do this as a brainstorming exercise;

Imagine your life without any limitations, you have all the money you need, time is no limit, there is no urgency, no musts, no shoulds and you cannot fail. What would you do with your life? Get excited…

Imagine you can do whatever you want to do and have whatever you want to have. To be whoever you want to be.

You are not constrained at all by what your parents think, what your friends think, what your partner thinks, what anyone thinks. You are totally free to just be you – to be your best self and to dream without any limitations about what you want for yourself, for those you love and care about, and for the world.

Give yourself the permission to stop for a moment and just let go of everything you thought you couldn’t do. The world is so full of possibilities. It all starts with a dream.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And you are the one who’ll decide where to go…” – Dr. Seuss
