Don't be afraid to be different.

21 September, 2015

Sometimes I look at my life and think... "Natalie! What the HECK are you doing?!?!" :) Then... I stop. I look at my life as a whole, from start to finish, I gain perspective, and then I dream BIGGER. In three weeks today I am flying to New York City for two months to work on my book design and write my "Dream Mentoring Program". After spending two months there last year, then two weeks again in this July... I took the plunge and decided to go back. Why? Because something in me comes alive when I am there. :) Not that it doesn't here in Melbourne, but in this city that is full of BIG dreamers, go-getters and risk takers, I feel it's a place where my heart explodes and my dreams get even BIGGER. I wonder where that place is for you?

So many times I hear those little voices, you know the ones I mean, the voices of reason that tell you pull back? "This is just too much Nat..." "OMG you really need to settle down..." "Woah, you'd better buy a house before prices go up too much..." "Don't you think you should just stay in one place and focus?" Focus on what?! 

I want to make a difference in this world. I want to make an impact. I want to encourage and inspire as many people as possible to know they have permission to dream. :) I want to help people see the gold in themselves and realise how amazing they are so they can flourish and do what they love. So in order to do that... I'm willing to sacrifice some things. Travelling so much and not having a home of my own to settle in has definitely been challenging over the past few years {shiversssss!} Many times it's been uncomfortable and frustrating, then other times exhilarating and amazing. BUT whatever season I'm in, I know it's for a purpose. And when we do something with our purpose in mind, it changes everything.

So what about YOU? :) What is burning in your heart at the moment? Do you know what God has created you to do? Because when we truly know, we come alive and life is different. :) Now don't get me wrong, I still don't have everything sorted, nor do I have endless supplies of cash... I am trusting God in lots of areas. I believe when he puts a dream in our hearts, he makes a way where there seems to be no way. And usually I find it's in this place of "super scary what the heck am I doing here?" faith, God has room to blow our minds and this is when anything really can happen. :)

So let me encourage you today. You are so loved! Your life has been crafted with
great purpose. There is NO ONE on this planet that can do what you were created to do and be who you were created to be. Dreaming BIG is tough because it goes against a lot of what we have been taught. "Stay safe..." "You better not try that..." "This is how it's always been done..." But the world NEEDS what you have to give. So just remember... 


This life is a "once only" ride. So it's time to take a risk my friend. Yep. So don't be afraid, because I am on the sidelines yelling the loudest and cheering you on!
