Queen of Your Own Life

Stop Playing it Safe

She'd always played it safe. But now she was ready to fly. It was a big, bold dream and she was worth it. - Queenisms™

She’d always played it safe. But now she was ready to fly. It was a big, bold dream and she was worth it. – Queenisms™

Let us state, right up front, that we always want you to be safe. If you are ever in a situation that doesn’t feel safe. Trust your gut. What we’re saying here is there’s a certain fib we tell ourselves about being safe. That fib, we think, is about hiding our lights under a bushel so to speak. That fib is about playing small, not playing safe. Here’s what we mean. If you have a dream, achieving that dream takes risks. Dreams don’t usually knock on your door and say “Come on out, Sally. We’ve been waiting for you.” Dreams need to be pursued, planned for, practiced and achieved. Some of those actions can be fun. Some of them can be hard. Your dreams matter. You deserve to live a life that is purpose filled, passionate, joyful and honest. You deserve to try. You deserve your own support. Is there something you’ve been dreaming about? We’d really love to hear you speak (or write) it out loud.

    My dream, for over 10 years now, has been to go back to school and find something that I love doing. I want to be able to look forward to going to work everyday.
    Another one of my dreams is to eventually become a homeowner. I want something that’s mine… Someplace that I can truly call “home”.

    Due to recent events I have decided to take the leap of starting towards making my own dreams come true. I am currently recuperating from an MCL tear so leaving the house is more much of a challenge at the moment. Being house bound, I am going to concentrate on me for the first time in several years. I know that the time is right for jumping off the edge of what everybody else does into my own dream pool. I will NOT sink because I am now swimming for myself. I am so glad that I found your blog and am also a proud owner of your books. It is truly fun and inspiring to “banish” things by my own decree. A combination of visual and written affirmations are helping me stay focused. Onward I trod to my dream of having a website for my dream- a photographer.

    I’ve been writing for more than a decade. Entering contests. Winning or placing. But I rarely send anything on submission to agents or editors. As soon as I post this, I’m going to send off a query. It’s time to go for my dream instead of waiting for it to fly to me. Thank you!

    My dream has been to be a seamstress ever since I was 22 years old. My hearts desire has been to own a small fabric shop, sell fabric and sew for a living. I’m 60 now and still have that deepest hearts desire, even though I am always getting the negatives from everyone I share this dream with. I am determined to make it happen soon! Thank you for your encouraging “Queenisms” and quotes.

    I have been pursuing a Dream not herd of in any book that I have read. I met Brad Pitt back in June 2013, in an unusual way. We have been communicating/dating for a couple of years now…Of course you all know that I am awaiting on his arrival. So my dream would have to be to Marry the Man of My Dreams, Mr. William Bradley Pitt
