Dreams come a size too big so that we can grow into them.

— Josie Bissett

Welcome, Inspired Traveler!

Ah, December! The month of dreams. For young ones there are dreams of sugar plums. For our elders there are the dreams created by memories. But for leaders, this is a time of year when we reflect upon our accomplishments and challenges over the past year and set new dreams in motion for the future. So, what are your dreams for your life’s future? Are they as big as the life you lead?

Will there be new projects to head up or new plans of learning for those who follow you? Will you re-think your purpose on this earth and change direction or will you stay the course, secure in your talents and gifts? In this month of hectic activities and celebrations, it is difficult to find time to reflect, reorganize and redirect, but it is precisely that which we must do if we are to lead into and through a new year successfully. And dreaming small does not serve you or those you lead well!

Is your life’s purpose still fulfilling? Are you spending most of your time engaged in the strengths you have been given? Are your mornings greeted with passion and inspiration for the day ahead? Are your dreams filled with the possibilities of a better world for everyone and ideas on achieving it?

We all face times when we are a little disconnected from our passions — that is quite normal. But, at this time of year, especially, it is good to find a quiet space, a cup of tea (or a glass of wine!) and a bit of time to reflect on how we are living our dreams. Life is precious. And, as we come to the close of another year, spending time affirming that we are living those dreams is an important part of planning for the upcoming year. So, let reflection be a gift you give yourself; by giving yourself this gift, you will also be giving those you lead a gift — the gift of a leader, confident in their direction, filled with inspiration and spirit that will guide them towards the future that THEY dream about. One who will help them find their purpose and serve the world as they are equipped to do. One who will help them to dream big!

It is in giving that we receive, and it is in leading, confidently, inspirationally and authentically, that others will find their path and we will follow our heart’s purpose.

May the inspiration and the blessings of the season be yours! All of us here at InspirationInProgress are blessed by your gifts and your commitment to leading faithfully and with integrity. We all share in the big dreams that you have for your life and for the world!
