It's Just a Dream

I had a dream a few nights ago…actually, it was just as I was waking up. To start, I have to explain my extreme fear of heights/falling. I’m okay going up things, but I don’t really like looking down for fear of falling.

With that in mind, in my dream I am with just about all of my family and friends. Seriously, I think everyone was there. We are at the top of the incredible tall mountain/cliff thing – it is a LOOOONG way down. The area that we’re all on is safe and has a rusty chain link fence on the edge keeping us “safe”. I was holding on to it because I was scared, but it shook every time I breathed. I got to the open part of the ledge and to keep going on the path to the next rocky cliff/mountain thing, you actually had to jump from one side to the other – nothing underneath you. Just typing it is making my hands sweat and making me nauseous. I kept standing there and kept telling everyone that I just couldn’t do it. Everyone is behind me, encouraging me, telling me I can take this jump.

Then, I woke up. I don’t know if I jumped, but the first thought I had was that I probably would have jumped if there were people on the other side to catch me. Instantly, I realized that I was probably nervous about “taking the jump” and moving to Georgia. I have so many people behind me telling me that I can do this, and I know they’re right…I have no doubts about that. But, unlike my dream, there are also people on the other side of this jump encouraging me. Pretty much, I have so many wonderful people in my life who believe in me that I’m pretty sure I could take any jump, I could do anything. It is so empowering.

Thank you to all of my wonderful friends and family. It is because of you that I am able to take major steps in my life. I’ll never be able to repay you for the wonderful support you have provided. 

And as for my dreams…I’ll keep dreaming them, and I’ll keep living them. Dream Big!
