a pep talk. (featured on #fireworkpeople)


Yes you, sitting on the couch all wrapped up in blankets sipping your tea. You, little dreamer with your head full of plans and goals and exciting new ideas. I have something to tell you. A little pep talk, from me to you. Do you mind chatting for a few minutes? Can you spare five minutes of your time to hear some encouragement from this average young lady from Pennsylvania? She has something she wants you to hear.

I've been thinking about you. Yes, you. You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't have amazing ideas, grand plans, and beautiful dreams. You're unique and creative in your own way and you have the ability to do something fantastic!

Not everyone can get their face plastered on every magazine. Not everyone can get their voice on the radio, or their words published in a best-seller, but everyone has words. Everyone has a voice, a dream, and something that they can achieve. It's waiting for you to just make the decision to jump in and get started.

It may be hard, it may take longer than you expected, there might be a little extra work involved than you anticipated, but it's YOUR dream. What are you waiting for?

It's too far out of my expertiseRead some how-to's. Learn a new skill to get your goal accomplished!
I'm not sure what people will thinkWho cares? It's YOUR dream!
What if I fail? What if you succeed?
I don't know if I have the time. Prioritize. Make a schedule and take small steps to getting it done! Don't rush yourself.
Who cares? So many people do. Your friends, your family, your support system, the One who has filled you with dreams and plans from the start.
I don't think I canTake a deep breath. You can do anything that you set your mind to! It may not turn out exactly like you plan, but it will be YOURS. It will be unique and creative and wonderful!

Still not sure if you can do it? Still not sure if you have what it takes to start something and stick with it? Then ask a few friends to be your support system, your accountability partners. Ask them to encourage you and keep you on track! There is someone that believes in you. Not so sure? Look no farther than this very blog! I believe in you! God believes in you! Get yourself up off the couch and get started. When you're a quarter of the way there, pat yourself on the back. Halfway there, get yourself a donut and take a bubble bath. Three quarters of the way, take a nap. You deserve it. Then guess what? You're there! Your goal has been reached, your dream has arrived. Celebrate!!

I hope this pep talk has helped you see the potential of your dreams and made clear to you that you CAN do things and write things and create things because you are unique and have a passion burning inside that deserves to be let out. Go get 'em!

Dream BIG!
