2015: Dreams, Themes and Goals

I like dreaming. I prefer dreaming to reflecting probably about 95% of the time. I really only prefer reflecting when it’s masked with reminiscing about happy memories, and sentiments of ‘this should happen again’, ‘I loved this’, or ‘wow, what a great time’. This preference is both exhilarating and debilitating, depending on the scenario I find myself in.

Are You Actually Dreaming Big?

Have you ever thought you were dreaming big only to find out you actually weren't? It's shocking, it's exciting, and it kinda weirds you out a bit. Welcome to my current state. Recently I took the plunge and have been sharing my ideas, visions, and goals with individuals I find to be worthy of such personal and important information. These spectacular individuals are those in mentor-like positions in my life. The select comrades vary from one who has literally mentored or supervised me during times of immense professional and personal growth, to one who has my faith life as one of the main filters our conversation passes through. It's a small, well rounded crew of individuals who really do have my best interest in mind-- which is exactly the environment you want when you are getting all personal! While sharing ideas and discussing what I see as the big, main, [...]
