But these are bigger dreams. In fact, they are dreams big enough to scare me. That’s how I know they are good. They are big enough to keep me cooking for quite some time. They are exciting enough to pull me towards them – wherever they may be.

They are the next piece of the path.

And this next chapter is going to be a wild ride.

There’s a wave coming.

I’ve known this for quite some time. I wrote about it a long time ago but I knew that it wasn’t there yet for me. I knew it was going to be some time before I felt it starting to build to the point where I could catch it.

I can feel it in my bones.

I can feel it in my soul.

It’s coming and I know I’m going to ride it all the way to the end. I have faith in that. But this is the beginning.

And this is the part of the story that gets interesting.

These dreams are showing me things that my mind cannot truly take on. It’s having trouble understanding.

Well how are you going to do that What if this happens? What if that happens. 

But the strength of my soul is whispering back telling it to quiet down.

Everything will unfold in due time.

6 years.

6 years of personal discovery has prepared me for these moments. 6 years of wandering through The Woods, bringing myself back up out of The Pit and arriving to this place where everything is on the biggest stage of my life.

Whatever comes my way, I am ready.

I trust who I am.

I trust what I have found to be true in myself.

These dreams were not just given to me by accident. They were given to me for a purpose. I have faith that I can make them happen. As big as those mountains can be, I know that I can chip away every single day and one day I will arrive at the peak…

Only to have more dreams to come along the way.

It’s a bit of a trip for me to look at where things are now and see where they are headed.

As just a kid almost 6 years ago I could have never imagined this. I could have never seen this coming. But now, as I begin to dream again, I know that there’s so much for me in this world. So many people to meet. So many hearts to light up. So many moments to be lived in.

Whatever is going to be on this path…

I’m willing and ready to accept it.

I know that there will be hard times.

I know that there will be darkness.

But there will also be incredible amounts of light and love.

Unlike before, I am equipped with knowing…deeply knowing…that there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

But rather, that I am the light.

Within me is everything I need.
