What’s Your Olympic Sized Dream?

Are you as excited about the Olympics this week as I am?  Since the opening ceremony that is practically the only thing that has been on our television.  I love watching all of the athletes compete and cheering on Team USA.  One of the most inspiring things is hearing about how hard these athletes have worked to get where they are, then to see how all of that hard work pays off.

Now I know that I’ll never be an Olympic athlete, and that is perfectly okay with me.  But can I tell you that I still have big dreams for my life.  Dreams that seem scary, and at times slightly impossible.  (This blog is one of those dreams, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me.)

I think if you are honest, you will probably admit that you have several big dreams yourself.  Dreams to visit new places, live debt free, write a book, homeschool your children, run a marathon, or whatever else your heart has imagined.

Although your dreams may not include being an Olympic athlete, they are still just as important.  So don’t let your dreams fall to the sidelines, embrace them.  Even if the timing isn’t right for that dream right now, someday it might be.  When that day comes give those dreams your all and make them a reality.

So I have to ask you, what is your Olympic sized dream?

Have you ever really thought about your dreams for the future?  How can you make your dreams a reality if you aren’t exactly sure what your dreams are?  So the first step to making your dreams come true is to find out what they are.

Grab a piece of paper and a pen and allow your imagination to soar.  Write down every idea that comes to you, whether big or small.  Once you’ve gotten everything on paper keep it as a master list of your dreams, and add to it any time you find a new one.

I would be honored if you shared your dreams in the comments below.

    I love it when people dream big! It’s sometimes scary to do so, as you pointed out, but if we don’t dream big, we’ll likely miss big experiences that the Lord has planned for us.

    My big dream: to start a non-profit called Pump It Forward to help financially-hurting families afford insulin pumps and other needed diabetes equipment. My hope is that this will open up the doors for sharing the Gospel. I’ve no idea how to go about doing this, but if this is indeed from the Lord, He will provide a way!
