“Seek Purpose, Live Dreams”, the four words that came to mind when I decided to go into business for myself back in 2009. Through prayer and meditation it became clear and evident ot me that whatever I set out to do in the world had to be purposefully aligned with God’s unique and intended purposes for my life. And that as a result of living my life in alignment with the intended purposes, I would live out the desires (The Dreams) of my heart. The desires He promised He would give. Hence the name…“Seek Purpose, Live Dreams!”
The intent of this ﬁrst article, in the series Seeking Purpose, Living Dreams with Shaniqua Cousins, is to ﬁrst encourage you to Be Bold Enough To Dream big, big dreams for your lives’. For some this may come as an easy task. And for others getting into this space may not be as easy, and it may require one to go back to that childlike place within. Where there are no limitations, boundaries or impossibilities.
The second is to provide content that provokes a stirring within that desires to receive more. More of whatever good and precious promises were predestined speciﬁcally for you many moons ago. However, it is important to have an understanding that receiving is preceded by believing. What do you believe is possible for your life? What dreams, the series of images manifested by your heart’s desires, are you believing belong to you and only you. While embarking on this journey together, we must hold fast to these images. Keep them near and dear to our hearts with strong faith and unwaivering belief that they will come to pass.
Thirdly, know that there is freedom and liberation in dreaming that can never be taken away. We are the owners of our hearts desires. It is only through our own permittance that we allow circumstances, and in some cases other people, to squander those dreams. We are all free to dream, to believe it will come true, and to receive everything intended for us.
Finally, I am here with you. I am your fellow dreamer and believer.
I am bold enough to dream the incredibly impossible for my life, and I invite you to do the same. Now I know that for some the idea of being a bold courageous dreamer is venturing into uncharted territory, which can be a terrifying thing. However, and I say this with love, sitting on the sidelines of life as a dream spectator could be even worse. You have everything you need to run a dreamers race. There will be test and trials along with this new found way of life. However, if you want to experience life like never before then begin “today” to Dream! Dream Big, Big Dreams!
When we allow ourselves to dream we allow ourselves to live and not just exist. If you would make a commitment right now to your tomorrow, your next week, and even your next year to Be Bold Enough to Dream, then I promise you will experience a new thirst and energy for what once seemed like the impossible. Come on and join me, the world needs to see your courageous light shine.
