I got a mass email the other day asking me where it was that I would rather be. I thought and thought, I am already living on a tropical island, so this was a little difficult to answer… 🙂

So, I changed the wording to instead say,
Where do you want to be in the future? In the end I came up with tons of ideas.

I want to emphasize that I advocate to Embrace your Life – now – as it is, to look for the goodness that already exists and stop searching for meaning outside of us and start living meaningfully right now!

So using the adjusted question, I liked the exercise of forming dreamy pictures. And so, I wanted to ask you:

Where is it that you want to go if you could go right now? Anywhere in the world? Who would you go with? What would you do? ANYTHING!! 🙂 Think big!!

Would you go: to a tropical island, lay in the sun sipping a pina colada? Or jump in bed to watch a movie, snuggling with a loved one? Or look out at the view from a mountain peak, listening to the pace of your breath?

Where is it that you want to be? And then write it down.

These pictures are pictures of your ideal world, of things and people you want in your life, places you dream about visiting or spending more time in but may not believe it to be possible. Or at least “just not right now”. We can be very creative in our reasons of why not to pursue our dreams.

But dreams are hints and messages signalling to us to follow our passion, our life purpose and to pursue our ideal life. Once we become aware of our ideal pictures, we must then write them down, this becomes our plan and place to start! All is possible!!
