it’s not the size of your wish that matters, it’s about being honest and brave about what you want, no matter how big or small, and going for it, no matter what! put your wishes out there… they need light and room to take flight.
make a wish list and prioritize. keep checking in with your list on a regular basis to be sure the things on the top of your list still resonate as most important. don’t hesitate to add things, cross things off, or edit as needed. these are your wishes after all.
be careful what you wish for. wishes tend to have a lot of momentum and can dazzle us with their shiny appearance! it’s good to know why you want something before you really dive in, and to have a good sense of self awareness around your wishes will give you much needed insight you’ll need along the way.
sometimes it’s better to take small intuitive steps towards the things we want, because often times the path is only revealed to us as we move further along on our journey. having a plan is important, but you have to also be flexible… there is more than one way to get to your dreams.
work, work, work your patooty off! this isn’t about wishing for something and then sitting back and waiting for the universe to deliver it to your doorstep, girls. this is about actively moving in the direction of your dreams. 110%. turn over every stone, explore different options, get creative to make it happen.
wishes need lots of support. don’t be afraid to ask for help along the way when you are stuck or feeling uninspired. research, ask questions, reach out, and be gentle with yourself and your progress.
be prepared to fail. sadly, it’s true. things we try just might not come together as hoped. don’t ever be afraid to let go of something that is just not working, no matter how much time and energy you’ve spent. pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep on going. maybe it’s a new direction, maybe it’s an entirely different wish that is calling you, or maybe it’s just that you need to take a big step back.
honor your fallow season. there is always a time when we need to do nothing, where we need to sit in stillness and go inward. let go of the guilt and resistance until your well is full again.
enjoy the journey and all the ebbs and flows, because when you get to your destination you just might look back and realize it was the most important part of the entire process!
believe that your wishes can ultimately come true! if you don’t truly believe, you will never ever get there.
