Big, Scary Dreams

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

I got this fortune cookie “If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough” when I was waiting on the results of my first ultrasound for my 2nd child. Since I’d undertaken the whole parenting endeavor intentionally as a single person, I could definitely attest that I was scared.

I carried in my purse all through that pregnancy and now it’s taped to my cupboard. I know that I’m not the only parent to wonder now that I have kids, do I still have the right to dreams that scare me?

  1. Good question. I guess there’s a balance between a scary dream…and a nightmare! I love dreaming for a reachable goal – maybe even one that’s not reachable. But I want to be inspired in the dreaming, not scared into it. :-0
