Quote of the week | by Lowell Lundstrum

Dream big. Have you done that lately? With the new year and all most of us set new goals in order to improve ourselves. Does it mean we are not happy? Maybe. But as they say, there is always room for improvement. This doesn't just have to happen at the beginning of the year. We are always changing as well as our circumstances & environment around us. Doing this a couple times a year is a good idea.

FYI: Whenever I write, I first write to myself. I then analyze & decide if it can possibly help others. If it can encourage one person, I'm delighted! Then, I click "Publish". Just wanted you to know that.

Here are some simple steps to gear us in the right direction (year- around):

1. It's a matter of taking a step back, looking at how we spend our time, money & energy. And does the result of these equal to somehow improving my life? My way of thinking.. The way I treat those around me, etc...
2. Write your dreams down on paper. Good ol' paper! Post them somewhere visible to remind yourself constantly.
3. Take control of your life. Make the changes necessary as difficult as they may be.
4. Get inspired. Surround yourself with positive people.
5. Believe in yourself.
6. Work hard at making your dreams a reality, because remember - dreams dont work unless you do.

Friends, we must stop living mediocre lives. I'll be the first to admit there are things I can improve (better wife, mother, sister, friend, artist - this list can go on for days) just today by tweaking things here and there. Let's give people something good to talk about.

I'd love to hear from you. Comment below & share a goal, personal, school or business related. I truly believe in expressing goals not so much to keep each other accountable, but more like encouraging. Can't wait to hear from you!

And if you find this post useful don't forget to share it :)

Happy Tuesday <3's!


  1. Love this, thanks for sharing your heart <3

    And a current goal: Start submitting my work to be featured & master the off-camera lighting I just got! I guess that's two goals ;)

  2. REALLY like this. :) Thank you for sharing! Also love the quote in the photo...made me laugh. "If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough." This did encourage at least one person. :) Thank you!!

  3. I love these tips! I think my greatest setback can often be losing the inspiration that I have, so I will be making sure to get out and about with my camera just to keep myself always noticing new things to inspire myself with. :)

  4. you know what? this actually really encouraged me today! sometimes I get so caught up in the "doing," of things that I forget what I am actually working towards, but hearing this today ws just what I needed. Thank you!
