If You Can Dream It . . .
I’ve been very fortunate to have very vivid dreams.
That is, when they are positive. I’ve had some that may have been exciting, but they made me face my fears. I suppose that could be a good thing.
Things like speaking in front of a large group of people. Dreams of flying . . . without an airplane. Being out at sea . . . swimming with dolphins.
If you can think it, you can dream it . . . and maybe it may work out for you.
Many Ideas Come From Books
It’s always fun to ask, “What if . . .” and see where the story takes you.
Have you noticed when you’re reading, you do see the characters and the location and even the action. That’s all imagination. It can take you on many adventures.
Many Ideas Come From Our Aspirations
I have a number of websites and I was thinking of getting rid of a couple of them.
I may still do that, but the one that was top on my list I decided to keep. I thought it was not something I wanted to write about any longer, but I found it was very much a part of who I am and what I enjoy.
There is one that was just a whim I had . . . and I’ve decided to let it go. I’m fine with my decision to eliminate it. I may replace it with something much more exciting. It all comes down to being true to yourself, you interests and your aspirations.
Yet, I also thought that getting rid of some websites would be excellent to give me more time to devote to other websites and other interests.
As I’ve mentioned many times in this blog, I love to write and I do want to write more . . . not just for my blogs, but to write books. It’s a grand undertaking . . . one I’ve done before and is now time to revisit.
It’s important to consider priorities.
Even a schedule. I’m not a schedule person like I used to be, but it may be time for me to get back with it.
This evening I was talking with some friends in my internet marketing group.
We discussed some interesting changes from Amazon to Google. Did you know Amazon is going to be delivering packages via drones? It does seem amazing, but it is definitely workable for them to do. And Google is making some changes. Not with drones, but with what Google does best.
I guess it has to do with apps and making what we want to do easier for us to do. I don’t know all about it, but there are going to be webinars and articles written about it so we can learn as things develop.
I did find some changes have already taken place with Google+ Hangouts. I was talking with my friends on a Beta version. So I guess it is in a test mode, but it worked out and we had a delightful few hours of conversation and sharing.
This sharing with people in a hangout may be considered a waste of time, but in reality it was very productive and enjoyable. It may become a new priority for me.
It’s truly amazing how you can connect with people in different parts of the United States as well as the world. That may not be a big deal to you who have been doing this, but I’m still amazed each time we make a connection.
Yes, I’ve been doing the Google+ Hangouts for over a year once a week, but I’ve found it beneficial to connect with people far far away more often. You can spend some valuable quality time together.
This works when writing a blog or just talking and sharing.
With the internet and the imagination of these technical people, it’s wonderful what they’ve been able to do to make our lives much more enjoyable.
Imagination and Technology
We’re in a magical age . . . not just a magical season.
Even non-technical individuals can take advantage of all the wonderful facets of the internet. I am truly amazed and overwhelmed.
This must be how people felt with the telephone . . . to actually be talking with someone miles away.
I do wonder when we’ll be able to discover about heaven and connect with those who have passed. Wouldn’t it be great to speak with loved ones or people in history to get the real story.
Maybe this is beyond the realm of the technology we have available today, but I would imagine at some point this would be a reality for us. I’m sure from time to time you’d like to talk with a loved one . . . get to know them better or ask them questions about their life . . . and perhaps learn that they may have moved on . . . there is definitely a lot we have to learn.
I know that could be a bit science fiction for some of you . . . but “what if . . .”
I don’t know if I’d really like to travel through time . . . but it could be an interesting concept to explore.
I wouldn’t be at all surprised if someone was working on that right now. Just as some have found and others are perfecting the ability to speak to the dead . . .
I do believe that just about anything is possible.
Yes, even life on other planets and in other galaxies. It may be a bit far fetched, but so very possible.
I may have gone a bit too far, but with imagination who knows what can be done . . . and what we can learn . . .
What Are Your Dreams?
It’s definitely something to think about.
You can leave a comment if you desire to share your dreams . . . or write them down some place for your future reference. It may be fun to go back from time to time to see how your priorities have changed . . . or your dreams, goals and aspirations.
This is an excellent time to imagine the future and your role in it. What do you truly want in your life? What would you like to be or do?
Dreaming is always fun . . . and who knows . . . they may even come true.
Until next time,
I’ve had several recurring dreams throughout my life. They all center around one place associated with one deceased family member.
I’m not at all comfortable with the idea of my grandmother controlling me from the grave, but I had a friend visiting one day who happened to sit in my grandmother’s chair and was stuck with a hat pin.
You may not believe in spirits or ghosts in particular, but this did happen. There is no other logical explanation to it. There was nothing sharp in the chair that we could find. My friend is psychic and she said, “Your grandmother stuck me with a hat pin!”
I call it a controlling dream because it centers around her dining room and the table. I do have her table, but I’m not living in her house. I’ve no intention of finding her house — it was sold 40 years ago or so and relocated out in the country. And, of course, I don’t want to move into it.
There is obviously something going on that my grandmother doesn’t approve of wholeheartedly. If it involves someone other than me, my grandmother is going to have to go to them in a dream. I don’t interfere in the lives of others. I, fortunately, didn’t inherit my grandmother’s controlling nature. And she should realize that about me by now. Plus, no matter how many dreams she gives me, I’m not going to do anything that is contrary to who I am.
I try to learn something new each and every day.
It may have to do with affiliate marketing and it may have to do with writing. I’m leaning more in the area of writing since I finally realized something about affiliate marketing. That revelation is much more disturbing than the recurring dream . . . and who can say the two aren’t related.
I think I just had a light bulb moment.
My recurring dream is quite simple. I’m in my grandmother’s dining room doing homework. I am sitting at the head of the table, in Grandma’s chair. The scene looks normal and natural, even though I’ve never sat in Grandma’s chair while she was alive and never did homework at her table. That’s what I find so odd about the dream.
In my home, I eat dinner at Grandma’s table, sitting in her chair, but I do gravitate naturally to a chair on one side when I’m paying bills. That’s where I’m sitting now with my laptop writing this blog. And, maybe I have a sixth sense that Grandma is sitting in her chair right now.
Did you get goose bumps?
My grandmother was a go-getter. She spent her money wisely and she made wise investments to make her money work for her.
My father learned this lesson from his mother and he instilled the same principle in my brother and me. So, I believe my grandmother is urging me to make some changes with my blogs in light of the new information I uncovered.
I love blogging and I know there is always room for improvement in my writing skills and in my blogs. I’ve had several opportunities to receive instruction, but it never became more crystal clear than this moment.
I discovered that although affiliate marketing has its advantages, the reality is that I won’t be making as much money as I would if I sold my own products. When you look at blogs that are doing extremely well, you’ll notice that most of them aren’t promoting products from affiliates. They have books they’ve published or give coaching sessions, do pod casts or public speaking engagements. They know where the money is . . . and it isn’t as an affiliate marketer.
There were two online writing programs I’d been invited to join. One I joined a year or so ago, but I didn’t like the format and I wasn’t in the right fame of mind to understand the significance. Now, I’m thinking of going with the other program. It seems to address where I am and where I choose to go. It is straight forward without a lot of extra-curricular hoopla. Obviously, I’m not into the extra activities.
The significance of the dream has finally come to light.
The message is from my grandmother, not controlling me, but strongly urging me to follow my heart and realize what I’d discovered to be true and there is another way for me to continue blogging in a more productive manner. That’s the reason of doing homework, not where I would do it, but from the viewpoint of my grandmother. Thus, the significance of doing it in her chair in her dining room at her table.
Interpreting dreams seem so logical when everything is put in perspective. I do, however, wish they were more to the point . . . but maybe I would miss it, regardless of how direct it would be. I do know I’m not the sharpest tack in the box.
I do believe that dreams have a purpose. Sometimes they sort things out for you. Sometimes they have a direct message or even a warning. Sometimes they’re nudging you in a particular direction.
I knew I needed to make changes right here and now with TwoCansOnAString.com I am taking a course looking into Guest Blogging, but now I believe I need to delve even deeper.
Five or so years ago I did take a writing course with an instructor who critiqued every lesson. This was necessary for me to take to get me taking writing seriously. I was hoping it would give me confidence in my writing and to find my voice. I believe it did, but I need to take it to the next level.
I’m finding the expression that it’s the journey that’s more important than the outcome or destination to be coming to mind more and more lately. My journey thus far with blogging, being an affiliate marketer and taking writing courses have all been necessary to get me to where I am today.
And the journey has only just begun for me . . .
I hope this was as informative as it turned out to be for me. I do thank you for stopping by and reading this. I would appreciate hearing your opinion in the comments section.
Until next time,
