Dream Big

The law of attraction, the power of positive thinking, karma, fate, kismet, divine intervention, good feng shui, destiny, serendipity, attitude of gratitude, seeing the cup half full, self-fulfilling prophecy, or just plain old good luck. Whatever you want to call it, there's a power in thinking good things that makes you have a good life.

It is possible to change your attitude, though it usually isn't easy. It takes a knock down to your pride and a lot of humble pie to stop being angry, mad, sad, revengeful, or unhappy. There are definitely situations in life that make you feel all these emotions, and it's not bad to experience them. It's healthy to go through stages of grieving. It's healthy to not bottle up your emotions, but to experience them and let the bad ones go. It's unhealthy to always live surrounded by these bad feelings.

Honestly, it isn't fun to be mad or sad or angry. It can be full of passion (any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, such as love or hate*) which some people take to consider as full of life and purpose. But bad passions or bad powerful feelings are not good reasons to live.

Everyone goes through hard experiences that can leave you bitter, resentful, and depressed. But you have to, you need to experience the emotion and then let the bad feelings go. Leave a space for good feelings then work to put good and light into your life.

Take time out of your day to be alone in your thoughts and feel good things, like appreciation for family, friends, good memories, possessions, jobs, money, food, shelter, clothing, little luxuries, health, abilities, and talents. Take time out of your day to dream about what you want in life, the ultimate life plan for you- your house, car, family, friends, job, vacations, possessions, etc... Doing this helps you refocus on what you do have and what you really want out of life. 

Some would say that you would then attract these items in your life. Others would say that by focusing intently on them for a while, that they then stay in your mind and you subconsciously work towards those dreams until you achieve them. There are religious people who would say that by being thankful for and taking good care of what you have, you become a steward over more blessings. There are groups of people who would say that you are just plain lucky if you get things you dream about.

Focus on good, work through and avoid the bad. Attract good to your self and Dream Big and let yourself live the dream by making it a reality.

When you cry be sure to dry your eyes
'Cause better days are sure to come
And when you smile be sure to smile wide
Don't let them know that they have won
And when you walk, walk with pride
Don't show the hurt inside
Because the pain will soon be gone

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue
'Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

When you laugh be sure to laugh out loud
'Cause it will carry all your cares away
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself
And it'll help you feel okay
And when you pray, pray for strength
To help you carry on
When the troubles come your way

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue
'Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big
