An Open Letter: To Planning While Dreaming

An open letter to the realistic yet dream-like people out there. Plan to make your dreams come true!


To Planning While Dreaming:

I was thinking more about what it means to plan versus to act. What it means to keep an idea in your head versus making it happen.

There are plenty of similar themes like this in my writings. However, actually looking at what it means to do rather than keeping something you've been aiming to accomplish a mere thought in your mind is different.

An action plan is a great start to materializing any goal. You can write down the essentials, for example, how much it would cost for this or even how long it would realistically take you to get what you want done.

It can be extremely hard to even do this much. There were numerous times I began an action plan for myself, and things ended up going in a different direction than originally intended. Even at this very moment, I know this can be another one of those outcomes with my current aspirations.

One lesson I have learned through it all: I have the power to get back up and try again or give up altogether. Everyone will have a different circumstance for choosing either route, but understanding that another door will open helps you to move on to better things.

If you decide something isn't for you, that counts as getting back up too! Always remember to plan ahead and keep realistic expectations in mind. This allows you to visualize and create more concrete ideas of what you need to do next.

The obstacles that make us question if what we're doing is worth it will be tough, but overcoming them isn't far-fetched. I joke that I'm a "realistic dreamer," but indeed, I think that having a back-up plan to paint and frame the overall picture I envisioned is a good way to accomplish my dreams.

I truly hope that this gives perspective to anyone who is frustrated or lost to the question: 'what now?"

Take some time for yourself, envision, and plan, but always dream big. Many may see this as fleeting or unattainable, but anything is very possible.

Many positive and healthy perceptions to you all!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
