Remember when you were in elementary school? Maybe you went to a school where you sat in one classroom for all of your classes. Maybe you went to different rooms for different subjects. You might’ve been the girl who chose to wear a dress every day. Or maybe you were the kid who’d only eat one thing for lunch—day after day after day.

Today is step three in the recipe for making your dreams a reality—also known as the “Live Your Dream” 5 step recipe. The first step was relaxation. The second was getting yourself centered.
Today’s all about meditation. While it’s the third rung on the dream-to-reality ladder, it’s really the most important tool in the toolbox as far as I’m concerned.

I don’t have anything else to do right at the moment.” (And you might even bob your head from side to side while you told me! 😉
Or you might actually seriously ask me, “So, honestly, when exactly am I supposed to take the time to relax? Really, I have no time.”

It’s easy to be happy when you’re feeling happy.
…to be friendly when you’re feeling friendly.
…to think healthy thoughts when you’re feeling healthy.
But what about the rest of the time?
Because let’s face it, as much as you and I would love to feel happy, friendly, healthy—and oh heck, let’s throw in inspired, on purpose and creative just for good measure—ALL of the time, the reality is that we just don’t. Sometimes we just feel down right crappy.
