In a world that sometimes tries to place us in its tiny predetermined boxes, I’ve learned that it’s okay to dream bigger than your circumstances. To dream as if it's already happening for you. Dream as if it's going to come true. Even more importantly, dream with thankfulness for what you already have.

Be grateful for your resources, your bank account, for the work and service you get to wake up and do every day, for the creativity you get to share with the world. From a place of recognition and appreciation, dream your dreams and then, it's also okay to dream of wanting to experience something more.

Today on The Karen Kenney Show, we’re talking about a time when one of my biggest dreams, the one where I met Oprah, came true. It wasn’t something I pushed, or forced. There was no manipulation or “making it happen”. I really believe it was simply who I was BEING in the world that made it possible.

It simply happened as it should, while I was living my life, being myself and choosing to live in a state of thankfulness for every person, animal and thing on this lifelong journey with me.

I hope today’s episode inspires you to not only look around at who and what you have to be thankful for, but also sparks those dreams deep within, that may have been pushed down, abandoned or forgotten with the craziness of everyday life.

It’s time to dream and to dream big, because you never know when your own “Oprah” moment will unexpectedly arrive!
