If you ever want to quit your dreams, read this.

05 April, 2016

Aloha friends!

Okay here's a big one... If wanting to quit every day is a sign that the dream is real and is meant to actually happen, then I can safely say my dreams are definitely going to happen. :)

Now, obviously as you know I am a great big dreamer, and if you are reading this then I am sure you are too, or at least you want be. :) But these last few weeks I've been thinking, and I want to clear the air when it comes to our dreams.

Seeing your dreams come to pass is FLIPPING hard work

Yup. And I don't know if you find this too... but I feel like there is a bit of an illusion when it comes to dreaming (and dreaming BIG)... that it's such an easy thing to do... and anyone can do it without blinking, and that it takes no effort or time at all. Ummmmmm. Well, I'm here to confirm {with a loud scream and arms crossed with the crazy emoticon face} dreaming big is fabulous, but it's not easy.

I know for some people it may seem like I always have it all together... and I'm always positive and never get discouraged or worry things won't work out. OMG untrue this is! And I have been trying my best to make this clear of late. So I want to be honest and vulnerable again. {Yay for being honest and vulnerable right?! It's SO refreshing. This world is CRAVING honest and real. So let's not try and be fake, let's tell people when we're struggling.} 

So speaking of being real...

I'm coming to the pointy end of seeing one of my BIG dreams happen. Enrolment opens for my Dreams Mentoring Program at the end of April. BUTTTT... while I am excited to see this long awaited dream come to pass, honestly in the last 2 months, I have wanted to quit every single day.

That's right folks... I am the BIG dreamer who often wants to quit. So I am sharing this because maybe you can relate. Maybe, like me, you also feel like your dream seems impossssssssible and you want to give up and move to a little beach house in a little beach town and turn off all technology and never dream again!

BUT.

Despite the squirming, and the "How can this EVERRRRR happen?!?!" thoughts and feelings that constantly bombard me {and you I am sure}, deep down inside, in the deepest parts of myself, there is a greater voice that whispers. "Nat, you are not alone in this. I am working behind the scenes. I am in this, and I'm helping you. I have created you for something great. You have come so far, don't give up. Even though you can't see the road ahead, I am making a way where there appears to be no way. Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeep going Natttttt!"

All of Heaven is cheering us on as we run this glorious race of life. Even though it often feels like we are walking alone, day after day, unsure of where to place our feet, we are actually never alone. :) Our wonderful God, who knows us by name, who placed every star in the sky, who knows every crazy thought that buzzes through our minds and fills us with crazy fear... He sees beyond this, and sees us flourishing and thriving and filled with purpose.

Like Cinderella after she is transformed, we are beautiful and bold with a great purpose. It's who we are. And our faithful God is committed to helping us see who we really are, and become all we have been destined to be. You are an unstoppable force my friend. You have something inside you that the world needs, so keep going.

Dreaming big takes blind, scary faith. But we have a wonderful friend who is walking beside us and lighting up the path every step of the way. God is on your side. So whatever you need, whatever you are worried about, whatever is keeping you up at night, and whatever dream you want to give up on, you are not alone. You are dearly loved and you are being cheered on right now. Something amazing is going to happen for you today. Stir your expectation. In ONE moment, anything can happen.

So this week I am filming the first four months of mentoring videos, and I still have no idea how it's all going to happen {hilarious!} BUT, God has given me this dream and I choose to trust him. Everyday. So I just wanted to share this to let you know that yes I dream BIG and expect crazy amazing things, but it's only because I know how good God is. And I trust the dream he has placed in my heart. And even though I may not be able to see how it can happen, I choose to keep moving forward. 

So watch this space. I look forward to sharing a great victory story with you!

Love you lots and cheering you on always. Keep going!

Nat xoxo
