Banning of the “What ifs”

If seeing is believing, then isn’t dreaming the first step to becoming? Dreaming has been part of my personality since as far back as I can remember. Daydreams, yes, but also the dreams where I would picture myself doing, or saying or becoming the one thing I wanted. I could see myself at a book signing. I could see myself dancing competitively (even BEFORE ‘Dancing with the Stars’). I could see myself traveling with the circus.

The snag in my scenario has been fear. The ‘what ifs’ have always found their way into my dreams and crushed them. What if no one likes what I write? What if people talk about me? What if people laugh at me? What if something happens and I don’t have insurance?

What if, what if, what if . . .

My children will not grow up that way. I will no longer live that way. Fear has been banned from our home. No one is allowed to ask a “what if” question anymore. It’s just too negative when all is said and done. Dreams can never be a reality if negative thoughts are allowed to take over.

Our new motto is “you can not achieve what you do not try.” Stepping out is a requirement to get anywhere. There have been enough opportunities missed in our lifetimes as it is. Today we start stepping towards our dreams and bringing them into reality.
