Next week is is February already, almost a month has passed since we decided that 2012 would be the year for situations to change, goals to be reached, and dreams to come true. There’s nothing like a fresh start, new beginnings hold so many promises. Or do they?
Yes and no. New beginnings don’t only come around on January first. Fresh starts aren’t only for Monday. Each day is a gift, this life is short, don’t wait for tomorrow. It’s just another excuse. Dreams do come true, but as the product of hard work, sacrifice, determination, persistence, and dedication. In the midst of everyday life, it’s easy to lose a dream. Something you once held onto with dear life slowly starts to slip away from your grip. Being replaced by the daily grind: work, bills, kids, commitments… it’s all too common.
Life is busy, but you can still hold on!
Schedule a time each day that you can focus on working towards your dream. Whether its a blog post you’ve been meaning to write, an email that needs to be sent, or a phone call that has to be made. JUST DO IT. One foot in front of the other, little by little, day by day, and the pieces will soon begin to come together. The hard work will pay off, the sacrifices will be in the past, and you will be living your dream rather than just dreaming your dream. Daydreams sound nice, but they get you nowhere. Real dreams hold real potential. Hold on, with dear life at times, just as long as you never let go.
Each day brings with it a plethora of emotions, a to do list (whether large or small), and opportunities. One might say that the day not only brings opportunities but also obstacles. This depends on how you choose to look at it. I choose to see each obstacle as an opportunity. One door closed only means another will open. Unless you fight it, complain about it, and settle for it.
