I'm Back... My goal for the next year...

I have been thinking a lot about the past 5 months, and how much my life has changed by just spending a couple months in a city like New York City. I have always wanted to live in a big city like that, and I really truly believe that is where the Lord is calling me after I graduate. From some of the most amazing friends I made this summer, to the connections I will never lose, this summer was by far the best summer of my life. God put me in situations to test me, and he put me in a place like New York City to see if I could truly handle the big city! He has shown me so much over the past 5 months, and I cannot wait to see what he does in the months to come.

I am reminded almost everyday by different dreamers and friends that I made this summer to never give up on your dreams no matter the situation and no matter what happens. I have taken that in full force, I love dreaming and I have based my life around the fact that if God puts me in the situation to dream big, then I am going to dream bigger than anyone has ever dreamed before. I never thought that I would have this type of outlook on life, and that I would think this way, but after this summer I don't believe I can think anyway else. I wake up excited about the day ahead of me, and pumped about what God is about to teach me every single day.

I have decided to challenge myself over the next year, to work on inspiring at least one person per week. No matter what happens, I am going to do my best to inspire at least one person every week for the next year! I have been given this challenge with a continuation of what I learned this summer from my Dream Careers Summer Staff, always go after your dreams, and do your best to inspire someone! They were the main inspirations for myself as well as many others this summer, and it is my turn to be an inspiration to the world!

I also challenge you throughout this journey with me, to go after your dreams no matter what situations you are put in, never give up! DREAM ON!!!!

  1. You might want to read "SUN STAND STILL" by Steven Furtick. In the book, be talks about what can happen when you ask God for the impossible. Part if that is also praying "sun stand still" prayers to God. I think it is very close to your idea of dreaming big.
