Once there was a giant beaver trying to bite my big toe.
I have some odd dreams sometimes and I’m sure that all of us could come up with stories of crazy dreams that we’ve had. Sometimes these dreams even happen in my sleep.
Some people come up with ideas/plans/dreams/thoughts that don’t seem to make any sense.
Do you love other’s dreams? Even if you think they are strange? Odd? Ridiculous?
Do you believe in their dreams?
Do you put them down? Do you tell them there’s no way to get that accomplished? Do you play block and tackle before they even get the dream started? Have you laughed at a goal that they set? Did you mock an opportunity they were looking to take?
If someone has a dream, try and help them with it. Did you have anyone support any of your dreams? We need support and we need encouragement to accomplish great things in life. If they were giving a speech late in life and mentioned your name as the reason that they tried that new endeavor, or wrote that book, or made that choice, wouldn't you be thrilled? What if you were the one that said don’t do it, and another person had their name mentioned. This is not about personal pride, but about helping others. We all need help all the time.
Dreams are scary to being with, because we don’t know where to start, we’re not sure where we’re going, we don’t know what bumps are along the way and we don’t know if they will work. Supporting in the beginning, at least gets someone started. It may not be the final direction, but you may have just helped that person to get on a path of success, just because you believed!
I have said to many people that we should be “blossoming” (thus the flower cookie for my picture today - nice touch, huh?) people. We should take the raw material we see and plant the right seed, so they grow to become someone great and beautiful. Even some weeds have very cool flowers. Someone may start off rough, but you may be the one that helps them become something cool, awesome or amazing in the end.
Lessons Learned: We are here to help others - don’t waste your time discouraging.
Thoughts: Who has thanked you for blossoming them? Or encouraging them? Or growing them? Or believing in them?
