Draw Close To What Inspires and Motivates You

I am here to encourage you today to do something that is inspirational, motivational, and makes you happy.

I challenge you to find a time to allow peace and harmony in your life today. At some point to allow yourself to breathe and find a place of rest. Even if it nothing more than taking a quick break at work. Take a quick walk. Listen to your favorite song or music. Try a few breathing techniques. It doesn’t matter what you do so long as you take the time to find that place of peace and harmony you need to get you through the day.

Dream big and reach for what motivates you. Consider that job promotion that would have scared you before. Consider that class you have always wanted to take, or simply reach for the stars. Dream bigger than what you believe is possible as that is where God will reach you and give you the strength to achieve them.

Lastly, have the courage to conquer your fears. Place your faith over your fear and reach for what allows you to grow spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. You will never regret what you strive for. You will only regret what you do not reach for.

Have a wonderful day!!

Allow Your Visions To Pull You Towards Your Goals

Encouragement Today

My friend, are you contemplating a new journey in life? Are you deciding if you want to accept the job offer of your dreams? One you may have spent years working towards, but now it is here and you are nervous to accept it.

Are you indecisive about settling down and getting married and are concerned if this is truly the best time or if you should wait? Are you already married and are unsure if this is the “right” time to start having children or question how many you should have? Are you questioning if you should go so far as to adopt your children? These are all questions that are important and can be fearful while leaving you questioning if the timing is right or not.

Are you in a strained relationship and are deciding if this is the time to walk away to redeem a healthier life for yourself? You do not want to hurt the person you are struggling with, but at the same time, it is important to make yourself healthy again. This can be an extremely difficult decision, but one that a vision for your future will help you with.

Are you looking to follow a lifelong dream of running a marathon or hiking Mount Everest, but you do not know if this is the right time to follow this dream? Are you unsure if you have been training long enough and if your body is ready for this adventure? Trust in yourself and in your body. Do not let the fear of the failure or fatigue take root in your mind. Allow the vision to achieve this dream to pull you towards the goal.

My friend, as you find yourself at the crossroads of running towards the dreams you have dreamed and allowed them to be born, I would encourage you to not be held back by your reservations or fears. I would recommend you to follow the vision you hold in your heart and allow yourself to be pulled toward this vision.

“If you are working on something that you really care about, you do not have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.”  Steve Jobs

Fear hinders many of us from following our dreams. Many of us remain in jobs we are not happy with. We stay in unhealthy relationships because of the fear of leaving or we remain lonely because fear paralyzes us from being happy.

My friend, I am praying you find the courage to put your fears behind you and allow your vision to truly pull you towards the life you hoped to have and the dreams you have dreamt you would achieve.

Reach for those visions to allow your dreams to be fulfilled.

Dream Big and Imagine Bigger

Encouragement Today

Today’s Encouragement and Weekend Reminder was inspired by this quote by Pablo Picasso

“Everything you can imagine is real.”  Pablo Picasso

My friend, do not let the busyness of life get you so overworked that you forget to dream big and imagine things you wish you could do and enjoy doing.

Reach for those dreams.

  • Do you like hiking, but haven’t found the time. Consider it today and research your area for mountains to climb or hill tops to explore.
  • Do you enjoy running? Grab those running shoes, tie your shoe strings and head out the door with your music and ear buds in.
  • Is your dream to train for the next Olympic event? Go for it, start training today. There is no better time than the present to begin.
  • Is your desire to run in a half or full marathon? Grab those shoes my friend and hit the road or track running. Let today be your day to begin.
  • Are you a budding author and imagine one day your words will be in print for the world to read? My friend, reach for that pen and paper or your computer and start writing down the words you have in your mind.
  • Are you an artist with a clear canvas or a clean slate your are working with? Is your dream to have your work on display in an art museum on day? My friend, go grab those paints and paint brush or your potter’s clay and get to work.

My friend, no dream is too big to attain. Let your imagination be your inspiration and begin creating that next amazing master piece or training for that next amazing race or climbing that next great mountain top.

Go For It… Reach For It!!!! 

Your imagination and dreams are only limited by your personal restrictions and your lack of believing in them. Open your mind and your heart and reach for them.

Go after them.

Dream Big

Encouragement Today


My Friend, Today’s Encouragement is a simple one….

“Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions louder than your words…”  Christine Caine

Watch your actions and your words. Be sure your actions remain positive and encouraging since your actions speak louder then your words.

Lastly, dream big so fear has no room to take root in your life.

Rock On My Friend! Rock on!
