Last week I went to the To Write Love On Her Arms event and I walked away with a very important message. TWLOHA has spent this year encouraging people to address their biggest fear and greatest dream. I’m asking you to do the same. With my blog I am being 100% transparent and I want you to know this space is safe for you too. You don’t have to put your name….just put “anonymous” or make up a name….that’s not really what this is about. It’s about recognizing that each of us are living a story and when we address our biggest fears and dreams it makes them not so scary or far off.
Okay, me first, my biggest fear is that this treatment will be all for nothing.
My greatest dream is to travel the world with my husband. I have told many people that I want to be a mom one day, and while that is a big dream of mine, it is not currently my greatest dream.
I asked my husband Justin and he shares my fear. He is afraid that I will not get better. Funny enough, I asked him across the room what his greatest dream was and he said he wanted to travel the world with me when I am better.
I love that we are unified! God has blessed me with an amazing husband who has kept his vows. He cares for “in sickness and in health”. He makes it possible to continue living my story each and every day. Without Justin I’m pretty confident I would have given up a long time ago. I would probably be one of the statistics about Lyme and suicide. I’m glad to say I’m here. Living my story and I WILL NOT GIVE UP!
So what about you? What is your biggest fear? What is your greatest dream? You can see examples at http://fearsvsdreams.com/
