Dream Again | Hawaii Whites

Sandy, salty, happy - the perfect combination! And the best way to describe our latest trip to Hawaii. 

We had been talking about getting away since Christmas + it just didn't look like it was going to happen. But then my wonderful husband jumped on a crazy good deal from Westjet (under $400 round trip) + booked us last minute tickets to Hawaii. Hoping there was nothing too pressing or important the following week ...

Spontaneous surprises are the best kind if you ask me, I could not have been happier! 
A week later we were off on the earliest flight out of YYC headed to sunny paradise. 
We realised we hadn't taken a holiday alone, with no agenda attached to it in 5 years, it was time! 

How delightful it was to bask in the warm sunshine, with no agenda and no one to please but each other. 
It was in this space that we dared ourselves, even allowed ourselves to dream. And oh boy, when we give ourselves permission, can we ever dream! 
All this got me thinking about my dreams that seem to have been pushed to the side with a thick layer of dust now covering them. Where have I lost hope + why have I allowed this to happen?

When you are constantly doing a good thing, not many people notice your exhaustion, let alone tell you to rest. Nor will they likely see you living a dreamless life ... Only the very close ones will notice enough to challenge you to rise above + chase your dreams again. 

I know this is completely obvious but I am realising no one will make my dreams happen if I don't. So I am on a journey to dream again. To sit, be still + wipe away the dust from the dreams I was created to pursue. I am learning to set aside the "should" to do list + once again pick up the dreams that make me come alive!

How do you dream? Are you chasing yours or will your comfort zone eventually become your frustration zone? 

Come dream again with me ...
