It all sounds so zen – the thing to do when you “get older”.
But what about your dreams? Should you downsize those too?
One of my (many) dreams is to have a Longarm quilting machine. The prices? Even on the low end, are pricey.
Sometimes I start downsizing my dream.
I tell myself:
- I’m too old to invest in it.
- Too old to learn how to use it.
- I could never recoup the expense.
- It’s just a silly dream.
I tell myself I can be content quilting with my sewing machine, even if it is back-breaking work.
I figure if I lie to myself long enough – I’ll start believing it. And be content with my downsized dream.
Registration is now open for the Seeds of Love 2023 Quilter’s Devotional Journey.
But here’s the thing.
If we downsize our dreams, we downsize our lives.
Settling for less isn’t living the full and abundant life Jesus came to give us.
My dreams may seem unrealistic to most. Heck, they often sound a little nutty to me!
But without the dream, wouldn’t life be dull?
Aren’t the dreams – the ones you can achieve and the ones that appear a fleeting fantasy, part of the joy and fullness of life?
I believe God gave us dreams for a reason. They keep us moving forward.
So my advice? Is this…
