one woman's quest to live the life she's imagined all while daring you to do the same

Become Your Dream

I read recently: There’s a reason MLK never said, “I have a goal.”

I can’t remember who it was, but I had that “Amen” response I get sometimes when I agree with my whole self.

He didn’t have a goal, he had a dream. A beautiful vivid vision for all of us, for generations to come, to adopt.

Goals don’t require the heart and the guts that dreams do.

Goals go down on paper, dreams get embodied.

Communities don’t get behind goals, they get behind dreams.

Dreams are brave; goals are safe.

Dreams are the why; goals are the what.

Dreams are full of fire, and conversely heaps of vulnerability. Goals are flat and uninspiring.

I don’t know about you, but I think the best way to honor one of our greatest dreamers is to become a dreamer ourselves.

To live with such conviction that you absolutely did what you were put here to do. Now, that’s a life. What else is there?

I leave you with this: Cross out your 2015 goals and write instead, “I Have A Dream.” And then go ‘head, become your dream, damnit.


Much Love,
