I truly believe that dreaming is not just something we as humans do while we sleep. Dreaming is a very active part of our lives. In fact, most life changes, decisions or adventures start with a dream. We have a dream to travel, to finish school, to start a business, to have strong friendships and loving relationships, to plant a garden, to learn an instrument and the list could go on. Some of us are natural dreamers, we know we're dreamers and we can't help it; we've always got a million big ideas, enough to fill a lifetime. Some of us are not as in touch with our dreams, though, I believe they are there all along under the surface. Some of us have hope that our dreams will happen and others of us have no hope for any dream and call it "being practical" and thus we never dream again.
I believe it all starts with a dream. So, my suggestion is to give yourself the freedom to day dream a bit. Just as recurring dreams during sleep can be speaking to you through your subconscious, some recurring day dreams can tell you something about what you'd really like to be spending your time doing with your waking hours. After that, we have to do something about it all.
One of my most favorite quotes is, "Goals are dreams with work clothes on." After the dreaming, then comes the steps that we take to enact a change or start to nurture ourselves and others in a new way. That could be to nurture yourself as an artist of some type, make a relationship better or apply for a new job. It starts with a dream, the hope that maybe you could find a new job that you would like and be good at, or the hope and desire to learn something new that would bring you joy. You can't figure out which way to go or what to invest your time and energy in if you don't take the time to dream a bit and then to listen to those dreams.
Maybe you could go stare out a window or go for a walk outside and let your mind wander a little. It might just change your future.
