You have to dream it to accomplish it
No matter the size of your hopes and dreams, the first step is defining them.
Instead of letting random ideas fly out of your brain as fast as they flew in, let’s take a moment to catch hold of them.
And marinate on them.
Give yourself permission to truly dream.
Definition of Dream

This is your time to voluntarily indulge on your wild and vain fancies.
Don’t worry about what someone might think if they knew the longings deep inside of you.
No one can tell you what you’re allowed to dream.
And this is not a time for being realistic. It doesn’t matter how crazy impossible your dream might seem.
Dream it anyway.
