To the girl who has big dreams...

I'm a lot like you.

I'm a big dreamer. My dreams are beyond comprehension sometimes. People raise their eyebrows at me when I express my dreams and tell me 'Don't be too ambitious', 'Don't overdo it', 'Don't forget you've got a lot on your plate.'

You know what I say to these people?

I'll get a bigger plate.

I'd rather live my life reaching for the moon.

It's true, I could fail.

But I might get the stars!

If you're familiar with the Bible you might be familiar with Ephesians 3:20.
"Now to Him Who, by His power that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do super-abundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams" ~ Ephesians 3:20 (AMP)
So by my reckoning, if we limit our dreams maybe we limit God? But if we dream the biggest dreams that we can possibly dream? Then God HAS TO do far above and beyond those dreams that we've dared to dream! It's in the BIBLE!

So before you allow anyone to dampen your spirits, before you shrink back inside yourself and think that maybe it's too much. Maybe you won't cope. Maybe you should lay that one aside... don't. Dream big! Dream the biggest dreams! Dare to hope! Dare to soar above the doubters and be that girl who has an amazing life. Be the over-achiever. Live a full life of passion and adventure!

The life laid down to mediocrity is the life that did not have an impact. It's a life that did not make a difference in the world. A life that did not change anything.

But the life that dared to dream?

That's the life of a girl who decided to get a bigger plate.
