All you have to do is watch. Feel inspired. Then share. Heather Bullard posted this on her lovely blog. I thanked her for doing so.
For so long I have never told anyone my deeply embedded dream. For fear that I may feel shame in doing so. I don't know if it is shame or the fact that I hold this passion so close to my heart that I want nothing but to protect it. I have so many dreams. Though I must completely come clean. Even though I look to become a financial analyst (yes I am always looking for ways to save $$ even on a bigger scale) my heart is 100% in affordable design.
I have always wanted to buy a house and decorate each room accordingly with my own refurbished pieces and local artwork. All things affordable, and I don't mean affordable for the middle-high class budget I mean for the usual family with the average 3 kids. I would make the kitchen and dining room into a small bistro & share it w/ someone who has a true passion for food and it's ingredients. Oh to dream...
Do you have any big dreams you have felt the need to protect? Do share. I know I am not alone in harboring my dream like it is an illness. I have a feeling my secrecy is coming to an end.
"A desire for bigness has hurt many folks. Putting oneself in the limelight at the expense of others is a wrong idea of greatness. The secret of greatness rather than bigness is to acclimate oneself to one's place of service and be true to one's own convictions. A life of this kind of service will forever remain the measure of one's true greatness."
