“IT WAS ALL A DREAM.” – Biggie Smalls

Joel and Casey Johnson

There are people on the other side of your dream.

When you choose to start something new, it’s really scary. When I get tired or frustrated, I think of the people who will be touched – inspired – encouraged on the other side of the work, the dream.

This week, Casey and I were walking around with our phones reading the DMs, texts, comments and kind reviews we were receiving. They were stories of how people’s lives were being healed and transformed by what they were hearing on Messy Life.

It’s scary to put yourself out there. It’s scary enough to be vulnerable in front of one person, let alone the whole world! People can be so critical and sometimes even cruel. (It’s so easy to hide behind the veil of technology, hurl poisonous words and not own up to them.) You have to set your face and secure your mind or you can quickly loose heart.

So we kept our eyes on the words of those who had been touched, transformed and healed. We kept our minds thinking on the good it was doing for others – even in the midsts of anxiety, fear and criticism, reminding ourselves that there are hurting people on the other side of this dream. Real people that needed to hear what was in our hearts. We read your kind words over and over. You pulled us through. Thank you. ❤️
