What’s in the way of your dreams? Is it time, money, or health conditions? I’ve been struggling for a while to find a balance in my life to work towards accomplishing my next dream. I’ve been a dreamer since childhood but sometimes continuing to work on my dreams can be challenging, and then it hit me. Steve Harvey said on his radio show that your discipline determines your destiny, not your desire. After hearing this, I figured that I need to find a way to accomplish the next dream that I have been desiring for too long. I’ve been working on it, but I often start and then stop due to life happenings and let's be honest, mainly the lack of energy.
Sometimes after working hard every day, my energy feels like it is zapped from me. Finding that quiet, therapeutic time for yourself is key. I took a break with blogging for a while, but then realized I needed to go back to the very thing that saved me. It helped keep me grounded years ago when I was going through recovery from an injury. Fast-forward to today and it is playing that same role in my life once again. I’m grateful to have this outlet. Not only is it providing the therapy I need to set the tone for a conducive environment and mindset for me to work towards my next dream, but hopefully I am helping others in the process.
Don’t give up on your dreams; you have to fight for them. This world will throw every distraction at you that it has, but you have to fight. Drag yourself up off the couch when you get home. With every ounce of breath or piece of energy you can muster up, work towards your dream. Strive to complete one thing towards your dream each day, no matter how large or small. Your life is worth it. It is worth being able to look back and see that you did everything you wanted to do in life. You explored this world and your limits, you worked hard but had fun while doing it. Please keep going (I’m saying this to you as I also say it to myself).
I hope this blesses you!
