What do you really want to do in this your one life? I mean, that one calling that you’ve stuffed deep down inside, because it seems too impractical, a pipe dream, or impossible. The thing that you’ve been told or you’ve come to believe that you are not.
How many of us become excited at the thought of being a writer, a dancer, a painter, an architect, a doctor, or any number of occupations or callings? We think of it with longing and wistfulness, because we are too afraid or believe that we simply are enough. Is that true?
We have no way of knowing, because we haven’t tried. As the quote reminds us, “you have to do the verb, in order to be the noun.” We must learn to dance in order to be a dancer, paint in order to be a painter, study architecture in order to be an architect, and study medicine in order to be a doctor. You get the point. In this case, the “doing” is necessary for us to “be” the thing that is in our heart. It is as simple as that, because there are no shortcuts, and it takes courage and practice.
So, the question is: who do you wish to be? Once you’ve answered that all important question, take the necessary steps to make it happen. It won’t happen over night, but in time, it will surely happen. What are you waiting for to begin the life of your dreams?
Okay, I am a day late. Anyway, I still wanted to wish all of you a very Happy New Year. With 365 (make that 364) days filled with promise, the possibilities are endless, as are my wishes for you.
Two thousand nineteen is gone, never to come again. With it, that chapter of your life is over and you are free to write a new story, one filled with travel, adventure, love, courage, whatever you choose. The thing that you must remember is:
“You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.” ~ Napoleon Hill
This is your opportunity to live the life you choose. If you choose to drop out of medical school to pursue your dream of being a chef, so be it. If you choose to leave your high paying job to become a stay-at-home parent, so be it. You long for a place to call your own, find it. Be healthier. Be fearless.
The choices are endless, and they are yours to make. Granted, many of us have obligations that do not allow us to, at a whim, cast aside everything to pursue our dream. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that you must let go of those dreams. Life changes, situations change, but your dreams must never die.
Among others, the Oxford dictionary defines “dreams” as: “A cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal.” Dreams do not expire. They are not defined by time. As long as you hold them close, they endure. Let them stay in your heart, awaiting the moment that you are ready to make them real.
My wish for you is that in 2020, you take a step that brings you closer to the life of your dreams. Be bold. May the year bring you abundant blessings. Cheers!!!
May the New Year bring you joy, good health, happiness, love, good health, peace of mind, body and spirit, and abundant blessings.
