When was the last time you put away your iPhone, turned off the TV and stared directly into your spouse's eyes and dreamed? I'm not talking about getting lost in a romantic notion of dreaming, but a concentrated and focused time of sharing hopes and dreams for the future with your spouse.
While courting this comes quite naturally. Infatuation helps encourage dreaming and the newness of the romance makes sharing your dreams quite natural. But as the romance cools from a boil to a simmer the talk of dreams and the support of them begins to wane.
That's why we like stories like Steven and Alejandra's. It's a great reminder of the importance of dreams and supporting our spouse in the pursuit of them. When you watch their story you'll learn about two very successful people who owe their success in part to the support of the other. And yet while support has been crucial to their success, no amount of support would matter if there was no dream.
So Alejandra reminds us of the importance of dreaming big. From the stories of her father's upbringing to her favorite movie Amélie, Alejandra's life has been greatly influenced by the power of dreaming big. And by sharing those dreams with Steven she setup a natural accountability partner who is willing to be a cheerleader and a coach to make those dreams a reality.
While you watch their story take a few minutes to ask yourself where you've fallen short with dreams in your relationship. Have you stopped dreaming together? If so, setup a time - maybe even a date, to talk about your dreams. Have you put some dreams on hold? Maybe it's time to pick them back up again. Do you just need to start being your spouse's cheerleader again? If you know what the dreams are and you've just gotten slack supporting them, then think of a few ways to encourage those passions in your spouse again.
Alejandra and Steven - thanks for the reminder of a powerful and trans-formative truth about dreaming. We wish you many happy years of dream making together
