Good afternoon all. I hope you are starting out this new year with a fresh look on the possibilities this great world has to offer. I am working hard to this respect. With this in mind, I have decided to talk about one’s dreams and making time to achieve them.
We all have dreams of achieving certain goals throughout our lifetime. Many dreams pertain to the type of work one wants to do, or the family they wish to have. Me personally my lifelong dream has been to write poetry while sitting on the River Seine. I have not achieved this dream but have complete confidence I will. This is the part of dreams that normally cause them to go wrong. Many times it is easy to think, that it is just a dream, I cannot possibly ever achieve that. You must keep a positive outlook. Even when you feel like life is throwing you every curve ball possible, swing and at least one will connect. Keep your dreams in a light that they are achievable. It may not be today or tomorrow, but if you give up on your dreams now, what will be your motivation for going on? What will you have to work for?
Making time for your dreams will help. Whether you have the ability to fulfill them now or not, take time to think about them. Plan out what you want to do or where you want to go. When we have goals and set them in motion it is much easier to achieve the things we want. This is not to say spend all day dreaming about going to Paris, or planning trips around the world. Take five minutes out of your busy day to think about what you want to do. What really speaks to your heart. Think about how you will make that trip you have longed for, or what you need to do to finish that novel you started five years ago. Just making time to think about your dreams helps keep them alive and keeping them alive makes them possible.
No matter what your dreams are, keep them alive. Make time for them and make time for yourself. Life is to short to always worry about the now, sometimes it is fun to think about the future. To picture what one day will be. Keep this mindset and you will be able to achieve your dreams. Perhaps not right now, but one day.
Until then friends, I wish you a wonderful afternoon and the best year of your lives. Remember always to inspire to be inspired.Advertisements
Our world is hurting, lives are being lost
Innocence and virtue are paying the ultimate cost
Everyone is fighting, the tactics are all the same
No one accepts their part, everyone else is to blame
Our children will suffer, what will be the price
Of an ever evolving world, addicted to money, greed, and vice
Politicians are pointing fingers, people are turning up dead
You can lose your life for how you think, pray, and for things you have said
Will no one stand up for our world as it weeps
From the fear inside, all the secrets it keeps
Our world is scared of the violence, the faces of anger are strange
It is desperately crying, pleading for change.
Having surgery as a busy mother is almost impossible. When you have no choice you count on your family and pray for strength. The guilt game one plays on themselves as a mother begins way before the pain of the surgery. The pain of the actual surgery is nothing compared to what we cause ourselves. The feelings of inadequacy and uselessness are unbearable. While I sit here trying to recover, this is the game I play in my head. I can’t change what had to be done. But as a mother I feel completely at fault for what I currently cannot do. As I watch my children step up to do my job, the pain sears my heart. Everyone seems upset and stressed, mad even. Is this what they feel or just my guilt overreacting.
I hope that all of you have a support system in times like these. I know it is hard and unbearable to watch your whole life from a bed. But I want you all to know, it is okay to be weak. It is okay to ask for help. They need you to get better to be the mother they need. Give yourself time to heal so you won’t have more complications.
Most of all remember they love you and IT IS OKAY.
