We know we’ve been teasing about this for awhile now. Little hints have been dropped here and there that we have something really exciting to tell you.
And honestly? We REALLY, really want to tell you!
We thought we would have been able to announce it this week but with another ‘I’ to be dotted and ‘T’ to be crossed we simply can’t spill the beans yet. And, at first, we were kind of disappointed about this.
But then, well, then we got to thinking. Thinking about you. About how perhaps this is an opportunity to have a little pre-announcement conversation. A little heart to heart.
Because, you see, we want you to know how very much we appreciate you. How much we treasure the relationships we have built through blogging these past few years. How we consider you cherished friends.
And we also want to talk for a bit about YOU before we talk more about us.
We know that you have dreams. And we’ve heard from so many of you who long to see your dreams come true. This is something we’ve talked about here before.
For some of you, there is already action attached to your dream. You are actively pursuing it and determined to give it your very best shot. You are out there pounding the pavement and putting in the work and might even actually be at the point of seeing results.
For others of you, those dreams are still merely whispers. You may not be sure if you even want to pursue them. It all seems impossible or overwhelming or unrealistic. Maybe you think that it’s even wrong to dream because of your circumstances or your season of life.
But, we have something that we want to say to ALL of you, whether you are the dreamers who are already taking action or the dreamers for whom just the word ‘dream’ itself seems more at home on a poster on the wall than as a thought in your mind.
Your dream, your goal, was put in your heart on purpose.
You see, we believe that you were created with great intention. We believe that you have giftings and abilities and talents that didn’t just arrive by accident.
And that dream you’re dreaming? It wasn’t an accident either. There is nothing random about it.
That dream was put there by an almighty God who loves you so much and is so unselfish that He doesn’t just place the dream in your heart. He gives you the tools and the strength to work towards that dream and then watches with pure delight as you experience the joy of having that dream come true.
When she speaks to people about weight loss who are at the beginning of their journey, Heather always makes sure to tell them, “I am you, just a little bit further along.”
And we think that the same is true when it comes to any other type of goal or dream. We’re all in various stages of the journey. Some of us are just starting out, wondering if we should actually nurture that dream that won’t seem to leave us alone. Others of us are in the thick of the pursuit where we have finally embraced the truth that this dream of ours might really become a reality. Still others of us find ourselves humbled and amazed to discover that our dream has finally come true.
Friends, we can now say that we have experienced all of the stages of this journey! And in the midst of all of our pinch-me moments lately, what we keep coming back to is how much we want to encourage you in your own journey.
We are you.
So, we want to ask you today. Where are you on this journey?
We’re going to challenge you to do something that may be a bit scary for some of you.
We want you to leave us a comment telling us about your dream. Because, we think that sometimes just saying it out loud can be a monumental step in the direction of having it come true.
Are you ready?
Tell us about your dreams!
And pretty soon, VERY soon, we’ll tell you about ours. 😉
