Dream Big: Circles or Octagons??

Dreams can sometimes be scary. 
But when we let go of our fears, our dreams take shapes we never knew existed! 
What we thought was a circle, turns out to be an octagon! (Yup. I went there.)

Sometimes we have these little baby ideas of what we want to be when we grow up or what we want to do NOW, but we have no idea how big they can really get. 

Let me give you an example: 
There was a girl named Xenia. No one really knew her but she sang at her church. It was like pulling teeth getting her to sing in front of the little kids. Her big ol' dream was to be able to sing in front of people. Anyone. 

Then one day, she just decided to do it. She was going to jump off the cliff of possibility, gave her dreams to God and hoped there was some sort of trampoline at the bottom. Little did she know that "trampoline" would be NBC's show, The Voice. 

She didn't win, but that didn't matter. Her "circle" dream of singing in front of people, turned into an "octagon" dream of singing in front of millions of people on national television. Crazy right?

So what dreams do you have? 
Did you write any down this weekend at Becoming Conference? Tell us! 

Dream big sweet friends and then give them to God!
