Do you have an inspirational quote or a picture of your dream home somewhere in your home for you to see daily or every now and then? Or do you have a simple money jar with 2 simple but powerful words…Hopes & Dreams? If you are a dreamer like me then your answer would be an astounding “YES”! I have always been a dreamer and believer that with believing prayer and determination that “All Things Are Possible”!
As a senior in college I wanted a brand new VW Jetta upon graduation. I had no job at the time because I was a college athlete and there was just no time for work. There was no one able to co-sign or help me with a down payment on a car, but that did not stop me from dreaming. One day I found a picture of a cranberry VW Jetta that I decided to put on my wall, so everyday I saw this picture and was reminded of my goal, to get that car. I had my friends over one weekend and they laughed at me and thought that idea was silly, but that was o.k. because I knew what I wanted and that I would take the necessary steps to make it happen!
Low and behold 2 weeks after graduation and only 2 weeks into a new temporary job, Guess who was sitting in their new VW Jetta the day after Christmas?? Yup, you guessed right it was me! I was very thankful to God for making a way out of no way. Now, I did go on to get a part-time job in addition to my day job to help pay for the car and my upcoming wedding, but I was willing to work hard for what I wanted.
Now, 13 years later I am far from a senior, but a wife and mother. I no longer have cement walls to hang magazine pictures on… but I do have a computer screen saver, framed pictures and a money jar of Hopes & Dreams to motivate and inspire me daily! I am still a dreamer and have high hopes and dreams for me and my family.
Would you consider yourself a dreamer? Have you ever hung pictures of things you wanted or places you wanted to go as motivation?? We would love to hear your stories!
Have a Blessed and Productive Week!
