Monday Mottoes – #60

thWhat makes you spring from your bed in the morning? What gets you motivated? What puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step?

In general, that’s the direction in which you should head.

Not that we always undertake activities that are pleasant, enjoyable, and amusing; however, the alternative is not the happiest thought, either. Moving beyond survival mode allows us to breathe and savor the moment.

Which brings us to today’s motto:

“You cannot be fully awake if you do not take the time to dream.”da825c58198677226ecd7a9dbf3e9ba1

Ah, dreams. I believe in dreaming, in stretching the realm of the possible to include the impossible. Rather than idle pipe dreams that disappear in a puff of smoke, I choose to focus on the first step of faith. The rest will surely come.

New research indicates that we are not functioning at our peak efficiency without 7-8 hours of sleep per night. So much for those of us who crammed in more, more, more for years as frenzied workaholics.

Sigh. I like a nap upon occasion. It gives me the ability to dream.

And so does a daydream, no sleep involved. All it takes is the time to disconnect, even for 5 or 10 minutes in the midst of a very busy day, and plug into all of the potentialities of what might be.

Dream yourself into your destiny.

Happy Monday, everyone!
