When we have goals or dreams we ardently desire, we tend to get discouraged by the ticking of the clock, and the passing of the weeks, months and even years. I struggle with this all of the time. There is just SO Much I want to do, and even though I work on it all a little at a time, in-between work, errands, and life, I never feel like I’m doing enough or moving quite fast enough. But I think that’s just the nature of a passionate heart and a super over-active brain – probably not bad things to possess. The thing to always remember is that there is no expiration date on dreams. There is no – if you don’t accomplish it by this date or that year, it’s time to give up. It’s not milk or a steak. It’s a DREAM. If you let them, dreams will die, but they never expire on their own.
So on this hectic Monday, my advice to you is to try and focus on the big picture, on the small steps you are taking each day, each week or each month towards you dreams and goals, and I will try to do the same. I think that as long as you continue to hold those dreams in the forefront of your mind and heart, and never completely abandon them, you will eventually reach that goal. Just remember to feed it, water it, and nurture it, even if it’s for five minutes today, an hour tomorrow, and a day next month. Focus on your progress, not your set-backs. Because I have experienced it firsthand many times, and the universe really does reward effort, patience and perseverance.
That’s my quick note for today. Here’s to a happy, positive and productive Monday. Dream on dreamers!
