Hey, I'm Lydia Kimmerling. I've been nominated as Psychologies magazine and Hay House's fresh wise voice for 2016.

Going for what you really want in life so that you see your dreams become a reality is really important, so I want to start by sharing with you the difference between day dreaming and dreaming big.

In this video I explore the difference between the two, the dangers and benefits of both, and a practical exercise so that you can be sure that you’re not making this mistake in your life.

One WILL change your life and the other can actually make you feel really deflated and stuck, so it’s important you know that you’re putting your time and energy in the right place, right?

Knowing the difference between day dreaming and dreaming big is what has enabled me to see so many of my dreams come true, including being shortlisted.

If you love this video and believe in living a life you're excited to wake up, you can help me win by voting for this blog.

Life Coach, Spiritual Teacher, Speaker, The Happiness Explorer

Hey, I'm Lydia Kimmerling I am MAD, CRAZY, PASSIONATE about helping you to create a life you're super excited to wake up to. Being happy...ish, inspired...ish and fulfilled...ish is never quite enough, is it? When you feel like there is "more" out there for you, it's because there is. A life where you can't remember the last time you worried, stressed or doubted yourself and your friends ask you "What's your secret?" because you GLOW, SPARKLE and SHINE. That can be you and I will show you how. I got my first television job at 17, ran my own restaurant in Panama at 22, taught Hip Hop in Cornwall at 26, was cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic at 28, coached CEO's on confidence at 29, then at 30 took the leap as a certified life & business coach with The International Coaching Federation to launch my very own transformational company called The Happiness Explorer. I am a master of change, so I can tell you that there is NEVER really anything to fear, but has it always been easy? NO! I have blocks, down days and self-doubt too, life doesn't stop throwing you curve balls, it's how you catch the ball and throw it back that changes. Plus, you never know until you try, right? At 32, I now know what the key is to waking up every single day excited about the life you live. It is to know yourself inside and out and to love every part of who you are.The more you know yourself, the more of you there is to love and the more you love yourself, the more you want to give yourself a life you love. The question is…What do you really want?
