Dare to Dream

I’ve not been posting much lately as you may (or may not) have noticed. I spent a few days in New York and since my return, it’s been busy busy at work (where I have been creating blog posts). Oh, and I’m trying to write my book. I need to be done sometime in early May. Because I signed up for a Master Class. In Taos. With Gregory Martin… and it’s hard to keep on track when people are pulling me in other directions and it’s So. Much. Easier to do things for other people than do things for myself.

In New York I attended a conference, Blogher for Business, to learn how to utilize blogs in a business, how to measure effectiveness, what’s the R in ROI… good stuff. I also met an interesting woman from Boston, Whitney Johnson. I’m not sure if or how she’ll fit into my life, but you know the saying “when the student is ready, the teacher will come?” I’ve been reading her blog sporadically since my return from New York. I think there are some messages there that I need to hear.

Her latest post, What Not To Wear, first attracted my attention because I love the show What Not To Wear. And then, it got me thinking about dreams.

How do successful people become successful? What’s the difference between someone who dreams and someone who Does? Do you have to live your dream at the expense of other people? How do you keep good boundaries while at the same time keep good relationships? And if you do change, if you do decide to pursue your dream, have you noticed that sometimes that choice upsets the balance of “power” in a given relationship?

I have more to say… but no time for now. What do you say?

  1. Hi Jen – I feel like I’ve been in a blender of busy myself since I got back from NYC. I think I will probably end up there! Good to see a post from you and was nice to spend the time in the city. Take care.


  2. Jen — I’m still a bit murky on the trackback process myself — so thank you for letting me know of your post.Please do keep me abreast of what you decide to do; crossroads are so frightening — and thrilling, aren’t they?My best,Whitney


  3. My brain is not ready to answer your question just yet but I am so with you on the part where you say it is much easier to do things for other people than it is for yourself. Isn’t it crazy?Welcome home. Now get to work on that book! 🙂


  4. Dare to dream the big dream! It’s not just the dream as a goal; it’s also the passionate pursuit that is life’s wonderful journey.If the path that is pursuing the dream is what you’d like life to be, then go for it.If you think it’s crazy to do it and that is the only thing holding you back, then you’re crazy not to do it.Lots of love, Eebie!
