"Don't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." 

I've seen those quote around forever, from canvases in Anthropology to inspirational pinterest boards.  I love it, and it does inspire me to think about my dreams.  But I don't think it's the size of my dreams that scare me.  For me, dreaming is the easy part. Don't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.  Or a lot bigger.  Because you can, and you should. Don't be afraid of chasing those dreams publicly.  Because the opinion here that matters the most is your own.

Don't be afraid to tell people about your extraordinary dreams.  They will either respond with belief in you or by telling you it's impossible.  One will warm your heart and the other will warm the fire in your soul, fueling you to prove them wrong, prove them wrong, prove them wrong. Don't be afraid of stepping outside of your comfort zone.  You will never be able to chase the adventure of your dream until you do so, and the alternative is living with bitter regret at what could have been simply because you were scared to get a little uncomfortable.
Don't be afraid to be unsuccessful.  Don't even be afraid of failure in epic proportions.  Because when you do fail, and you and your dream crash and burn, you will do so having tried, having tried, having tried.

Spectacular failures don't exist without spectacular efforts and spectacular experiences.
So don't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling. 
And don't be afraid to chase, to tell, to prove, to step out, to fail spectacularly, to try, to succeed. 
Because you can, you can, you can.
