Eight months in…..

Eight months in…..

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
― Lao Tzu

Before I knew it the months had just drifted away. At the end of the year and going into a new year your mind is so full of dreams and visions of how you want things to go. Planning and acting goes hand in hand until you realize that one thing out weighed the other and time just seems as it just got away from you. Change is often inevitable and it can throw you for a loop if you let it. Eight months in and I had moments that I felt life I was walking head on into a strong whirlwind.

Eight months in….

dreams are still the same

HOWEVER

efforts didn’t line up with dreams

frustration turned into relaxation

motivation left with the time

focus shifted

life changed

people changed

lost love ones

lost friends

lost direction

became discouraged

picked up the fear of failing

THEN

I realized that sitting still changes nothing

Looking back changes nothing

If I wanted something I had to do something different

SO….

I realized…..

That within this eight months I wasn’t the same person because

I forgive more

I love more

I have learned more

I challenged myself more

I made better decision than I have in the previous years

I let things go a lot faster than before

I’m quicker to look pass your mistakes

I’m quicker to ignore imperfections in myself and others

I pray more

I care more

questionable

Although my eight months have been questionable it is not how I started that counts what really matters is how I finish!!!

IN it TO win IT

Possibilities

Possibilities

“It is the possibility that keeps me going, and though you may call me a dreamer or a fool or any other thing, I believe that anything is possible.”
― Nicholas Sparks

 

kids

As children we sit and think about all the things would could possibly be when we grow up.

I want to be a police officer NO wait

I want to be a teacher NO wait

I want to be on TV NO wait

I want to be a doctor NO wait

I want to play football NO wait

I want to be a dancer NO wait

I want to be an entertainer NO wait

I want to be a chef NO wait

I want to be an astronaut NO wait

I want to be garbage man NO wait

I want to be a Mom NO wait

I want to be a Dad NO wait……

Like a child there were endless possibilities and no dream was unattainable

AND THEN YOU GROW UP…..

cancelled

And you stop following your dreams

Life happens somehow and you forget how to dream

One thing that most adults are lacking now is the ability to imagine

Somehow along the way your imagination was snatched away from you

Do you see this bag?

This is an imagination bag that allowed you to create whatever your heart desired

barney

Here are a few words from the song that goes along with the bag:

“I’ve been looking in my Barney Bag

And I found lots of things

Gizmos and gadgets, odds and ends and even some old string

So let’s ask ourselves a question what can we make today……”

Moral of the story the power to create is in your hands!!!!

Never ever stop dreaming!

Time to go for it again!
