Wide-eyed from the invisible bricks and alarm I realized: "I dream too damn much. That's my problem. THAT'S IT!"You're probably thinking "that's so obvious! Of course dreaming doesn't get you anywhere! Of course you need to work hard and actually DO something to get results!" However, is it really that obvious? How many times have we said, I want to be "x" or I want to do "y" and then returned to being and doing whatever is the furthest from "x" and "y?" Do we really want to do or be those things we dream of or do we just like hearing ourselves talk about things that we know will not happen? I hope it's the former, and if so, I believe that we as humans are just more comfortable with dreaming than actually doing and that is why we often never get to where we want to be. At least, that's the truth for me.
That is what is going to happen. Although 2015 was a (long, albeit necessary) year of dreaming, 2016 is going to be a year of DOING. Inherently, 2016 is going to be the beginning of a new chapter for me because I am actually moving to a bigger, different city in a couple of months to pursue one of the other things I dream about (yay to actually doing something about my dreams!). However, as mentioned at the beginning of this article, each day can be a new year so the DOING starts today, not just January 1, 2016.
