“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Have you ever experienced a vibrant, almost life-like dream? Where you’ve woken up only to realize that it wasn’t a reality, but just a figment of your imagination. And upon realizing that it wasn’t real, you felt a bit empty, sad, or maybe even lonely.
That is a horrid feeling! The feeling of waking up alive and bright only to have the feeling wane, fade, and disappear.
We can’t feel wholesome and fulfilled if we aren’t living up to our potential.
Going through life, participating in the same mundane cycle on repeat that doesn’t make you your best you, won’t make your reality better than your dreams.
So stop for a moment on this new Monday morning and think to yourself, what can I do today to make my reality better than my dreams?
Does this mean getting up a bit earlier to start that workout you’ve been meaning to make part of your routine?
Does this mean writing down your thoughts, dreams, hopes, wishes, goals, etc. in a journal so that you can reflect on them and push forward towards actually accomplishing them?
Does this mean rekindling important relationships that need mending, but you haven’t taken the time to do so?
Does this mean changing your perception of what your every day is?
Does this mean letting go of something bitter that’s been holding you back from reaching your true potential or no longer aligns with what you need?
Whatever it may be – CHANGE IT!
You have all the power in the world to say yes to what will benefit you!
You have all the power in the world to stop the harmful cycle that makes you want to sleep versus live!
You have all the power in the world to be the change you need to be your best you!
As Dr. Seuss said, “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams.”
So go find love – love isn’t necessarily a material object or a person. Love is a feeling. It’s a feeling that drives you forward every single day.
I challenge you to make the change that’s preventing you from loving your reality and preventing your reality from being better than your dreams.
And it may be multiple changes that need to be made. That’s okay! As long as you don’t lose sight of what will turn your dreams into a reality.
You can do it! I know you can say yes to the changes that need to be made no matter how daunting they may seem. The question is, will you?
