“You Mustn’t Be Afraid to Dream a Little Bigger, Darling!”

Darling 1

“You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling!”  It graces our walls here at Hancock Creative Shop, because everyday I want to remember the importance of dreaming big.  Not far away hangs a lovely little green and yellow sign that simply says “Believe”.

Believe 1

Every time one of these signs sell, I immediately paint another because these two concepts are daily changing my reality.  I am constantly reminded that life is not for the faint of heart, but life is for living, for grand adventure, for passion, for love, for hope, for peace, for the pursuit of happiness.  Life truly is ours for the taking.  We can live as if life is for living or we can live as if it is for dying which is what so many of us do.  I see faces that have lost all their shine because they are in survival mode.  With six kids, and numerous struggles and hardships under my belt, I know survival mode and I also know that we live in a creative universe that longs to come in and support us in ways we were never quite expecting.  For every crisis, there is hope.  For every fear, there is abundant love to conquer that fear.  We do not have to live our lives victim to our circumstances. Simply change your mind!  I know that does not sound simple, but it starts with allowing your mind to have a little fun.  Set aside all the agendas, the schedules, the due dates, etc. …that are cluttering your mind and instead think on the things that really make you happy.  Is it arm knitting?  Is it baking macaroons?  Is it old fashioned shave shops where you can get a nice clean shave with a straight razor?  What makes you smile inside?  What makes you feel alive?  Let these happy thoughts mingle with dreams for your future.  How can these lovely things be more a part of your life?  Imagine.  Remember, “You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling!”  Go ahead…Believe!!!
