BLOGGING IS NOT JUST A HOBBY: IT IS A COMMUNITY I started my blog as a creative outlet for myself. I wanted a way to express myself, and a way...
As someone who sold cassette tapes in elementary school, I knew that one day I would be become an entrepreneur. In January 2014, at the age of 33 with a family and two young kids, I decided to chase my dream and go full-time in my app marketing business.
I've learned to dream big, but then to shove that big dream to the back of a closet. It can wait there to be dealt with when the time comes, when I've completed the work and given it time. Or else my dreams turn out to be just that - big dreams.
Remember, for us to change ourselves we must first change our mindsets. For the mind to change we must first have awareness of the need and that comes in the form of connection.
As these concepts are counter to how we have been taught, they can be hard to embrace. Start one by one and build up your strength in each one. Over time you will find a new rhythm which flows you into your dream life without all that pesky hard work and struggle.
Well, what if that "can't" word is not even part of your vocabulary -- chuck it away, throw it out with the trash, lock it in the trunk, light that sucker on fire.
Simply asking a few questions about sleep and dreams can open up a wealth of deeply meaningful images, feelings, and memories that help the individual anticipate and prepare for the end of life.

Poetry has the logic of memory, the spontaneity of dreams, yet is much like calculus--each line is, in a sense, an asymptote composed of and continu...
Do you read books? I love reading, it's almost like meditation for me. Did you ever start reading a book, and you just didn't want to stop, you wa...
Tools that give me the confidence that I know I need and the maturity I've developed in order to go after what I want without falling into the same mistakes I made in the past.
Technology has already evolved to the point of being able to recording a very simple dream and projecting it on a computer screen, complete with your dream images, your dream conversations and your movements within the dream.
It's taken a lot of work to distinguish a work/private time balance. I've felt so drained in certain situations that only with strong spiritual training and embracing the simple values surrounding my career gives me the inner strength and peace to continue forward.
Will you fall apart completely if you ignore a particular dream? No. But if you keep disregarding them over time the gap between conscious and unconscious will widen. Give your dreams some attention and you'll have less inner conflict and more psychological expansion.
