Dream Bigger by Julie Wise

Julie is a life coach and freelance writer.  In this book, she reminds us what dreams are and gives us the tools to achieve them.  Complete with inspirational stories and exercises, this book is a definite for those who have lost their way and forgotten who they are.

I moved Julie's book to the top of my 'to be read' pile on the advice of a friend.  I'm thankful I did.  It seems like life is constantly throwing something at you that you just don't have the energy and time to deal with.  For most of us we get so ingrained in our daily routine filled with housework, jobs and family that we forget who we are.  We become little robot machines that just tune out our innermost thoughts and get the job done.  I know I've been guilty of this on several occasions, especially recently with several life changes going on.  Julie's book helped me to remember who I am and what I want out of life.  Life is so short and we don't get that much time.  It's easy to get lost in the day to day things and forget what we really want out of life while we're here. 

This book is easy to read, short, and inspirational.  There are a few chapters that are just filled with inspirational 'dream' stories about others.  Most of the chapters though contain thought provoking information that leads into the exercises.  None of the exercises are difficult and Julie explains why each is important as you go along. 

I wouldn't suggest this book for just a bit of light reading.  Anyone seeking some direction in life or wanting to reconnect with who they really are will find valuable insight inside.
