This time of uncertainty puts us all on our edges. Most of us have started the new year with plans and goals lined up; and although so many things are being cancelled right now, lets not forget that the most unseen or abstract things are not being cancelled. Dreams are not cancelled. Compassion is not cancelled. Kindness is not cancelled. Love is not cancelled; and a better future is definitely not cancelled.
I know a lot of people feel stuck and ask how to keep moving forward or moving towards your dreams without being distracted by the reality we live in today. How do you dream big and focus on building your dreams when news outlets keep reminding you of the sad reality we live in, making you believe that maybe you should put these dreams of yours on hold?
The truth is that you shouldn’t! My answer to anyone asking “How to keep moving forward with your dreams in this reality?” is to keep your dream in front of you! It’s like driving a car. You get behind the wheels with a destination in mind. Then you get on the road and… what do you notice? You notice others’ cars driving on the same road. You notice other people and scenery all around you. You focus on your own driving and you keep going toward your destination. You may hit traffic, but it doesn’t stop you. You may see someone do something that annoys you, but the moment passes and it doesn’t stop you. Why doesn’t it stop you? Because you know where you’re going and you keep your eyes on the road. When things come at you in life, that seems out of the plan, completely against you and unfair, don’t let it capture all your attention and energy. Instead keep the image of what you desire and where you want to be in front of you. The more your focus is on that, the more space it takes up in your mind; and before you know it, you won’t have room for all the other stuff distracting you. You can be aware of your reality and live in the now, and yet float on your dreams until you wake up one day to realize that you actually achieved them. It just takes Focus. Remember, KEEP YOUR DREAM IN FRONT OF YOU no matter what your current reality is!
Love & Light,
Great Post. We all get used to certain routes in our travels and often veer off the beaten path. Yesss. . we must hold on to our DREAMS!
I couldn’t agree more sister Neti! We all need the reminder sometimes. I hope you have a terrific Tuesday. Stay safe!
I love this! “Keep your dream in front of you” is an amazing mindset. Thank you for sharing those words, I think we all need this in our lives right now!

Thank YOU for stopping by and commenting, Celyn! Have a great day!
Such a wonderful message, Edwige! I think so many of us, myself included, feel so stuck in our attempt to focus forward. But you are right, we need to continue focusing forward so we are not at a total stop when we get back to normal. Thanks for sharing your love and light with the world!
I appreciate your kind words Shelbee. It definitely isn’t easy, and I understand that… but I believe that our “why” must be strong enough to keep us going even in the midst of adversity. A process indeed, but doable. As always, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! XO
Excellent post! People tend to think in terms of all or nothing, rather than realizing this may be reality, but it’s a detour; not a dead end.
Very well put Michelle. I agree, we must try to be positive and see the good side of things. This may be a setback but it can result in a greater comeback. Thank you for visiting and commenting!
I love this post, wise wise words!! Thanks so much for sharing AND those outfits are the cutest. Hope you have a great weekend!
Thank you so much for stopping by and for commenting Sherry! I hope you make it a fabulous day! XO
This is so true. We can keep planning for the future, this is just a kink in the road, not a dead end. I do think there are positives to be found too such as cleaner air, time with family, escaping from the rat race for a while. Hopefully we can hold on to some of the good things! Thanks for linking up!
I’m glad we’re on the same page, Emma! Thank you for stopping by and happy new month!
I love this! Gotta keep those dreams in focus. 🙂
