The value of dreaming
Don't let your dreams tease you, let them tempt you.
When I was younger I had very vivid dreams of sliding effortlessly down into the splits. I'd glide into them with such ease and comfort and would then be over-joyed with my ability and achievement... until I awoke to realise I was still my pitifully rigid self!
For YEARS this recurrent dream would tease and taunt me, making me acutely aware of my physical inadequacies.
Then one year, (circa 2015) I decided to stop being taunted by this dream and instead be tempted by it.
I decided not to see my dream as a slight against what I was and instead see it as an alluring image of what could be.
2 years on and that allure holds strong and I make consistent efforts to work on my flexibility and mobility.
Whilst I may not be gliding into those splits yet (not quite), I did have my best ever round of The Cereal Box Game last weekend, and that my friends is serious and joyful stuff! (Never heard of it? Watch here http://bit.ly/clbvid1)
So don't be taunted by your dreams, instead tap into their value by letting them tempt you and drive you forward!
