Inner Growth Word of the Day: Dreams
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 4 a. a strongly desired goal or purpose. 4 b. something that fully satisfies a wish.
Dreams in a sentence: Your dreams can be so many that it requires a lifetime to pursue them all and bring them to reality.
Dreams in action: When you envision something that will take place or if you have a vision of something concrete that you want to achieve those are both examples of dreams.
Dreams and inner growth: A look at the dreams you have and the ones you had, but that have changed gets you to pursue inner growth by allowing you to clearly see what transformations have happened with you to bring about change or what things you fear that have stopped you from achieving some dreams. Exploring gives you insight into you, as well as the level of awareness and in-depth knowledge needed to make changes in the dreams you want to pursue moving forward.
Dreams and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: When did I first think about my dreams? How do my dreams differ from childhood to adulthood? Why do my dreams mean something to me? How have my dreams affected my relationships? What are some of my biggest takeaways thanks to pursuing my dreams? How have my dreams come to life?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with dreams at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From these words what dreams stand out the most and why? Write about one of the dreams that came to mind using the words in your list.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about the dreams you have in life and notice how your emotions change depending on what dreams come to mind, how they have played out so far, and anything else that affects your dreams and therefore how you feel about them. As you do this, make sure to also pay attention to how your feelings flow throughout your body. If they settle in any particular spots, visualize them moving on.
