Dreaming Big

by Queen Bee on 02/04/2014

I recently told the counselor that I have been trapped into a life that is void of creativity. I used to be a creative thinker. But now I am stuck in a rut. The counselor told me that this is a topic that I have been bringing up for quite a while, so maybe it is something that I ought to address. She suggested that I dream big about all of the possibilities that I see for my life. If I don’t dream off all my possibilities, then I fully can’t explore all of my options.

I don’t even know what it means to dream big anymore. I can easily try to fantasize about what I might consider to be the perfect life. It sounds like an easy thing to do, but it’s actually kind of tough. I try to form an imagine of my ideal life in my head and I can’t even brainstorm possibilities. I have to force my brain to think of options. My brain starts grasping for straws and random images influenced by movies pop into my mind.

For one brief moment, my ideal life seemed like I would be living in a foreign country somewhere, like Italy or France. I can see my hair blowing in the Tuscan wind. Then at other times I see myself jetting around Mexico City on the subway. Other times I see myself in a cute house with a pool, and I am working from home.

It’s hard for me to really know what I want out of my life for the next few years. It’s accurate to say that I am sort of bored with my current life. I need to shake things up a bit. I need some change.

Most of fantasies are so random. But the common theme that seems to run through them is freedom. And independence. In my fantasies, no matter where I am and what I am doing, I am doing exactly what I want to do and when and how I want to do it. I wake up when I want. I work from my computer or by my pool. I work on projects that I want to work on. I take extended breaks to live a quiet life.

So just how I am going to get myself to the point of such freedom is going to be a little more difficult to determine. But at least I know what I am aiming for. If I keep my eye on the prize, I am bound to reach my destination.
