How much time do we waste waiting for others to make our dreams come true? How many people around the world sit dreaming of a better life when the reality of change is so close that if they reached out in front of them, they could touch it. We often live out fantasies and dreams in our minds over and over again, yet put little real effort into making them come true. We look at other people and do not see much work on the surface and wonder ‘how are they so lucky?’
Is it luck or is it like the old proverb about a swan gliding gracefully on the surface of a pond. On the surface everything looks serene and graceful. Yet underneath the legs are thrashing through the water pushing the swan forward. Anything worth while in life takes time and effort. If you want something enough you have to start doing everything in your power to make it happen. If in the end it is not your destiny to achieve the said thing, then you learn the lessons needed to achieve the next dream on your list.
Remember it is very rare that we understand why things have happened in our lives. But when we look back and see the near misses and almost have’s that we see a path formed from failure to failure that led to something wonderful occurring in our world. Was it meant to be or was it planned? Now is not the time to question the universe, now is the time to work hard on your next step. Take each step with equal enthusiasm and courage, for you never know where it will lead you. Happy journey. Have a creative day.
