Today is the first day of Spring. Here in the northeast, I woke up to a snow covered lawn and 25 degrees. I headed out the door for an early morning appointment and felt the gentle soft flakes kissing my cheeks. I thought, ahhh the promise of Spring starts today. My thoughts looked longingly at the pool covered which was white. I thought how many of you other in other parts of the country and around the world are daydreaming about something that you long for. You know a “Dream” that you have kept locked away deep inside you someplace.
What is it that you want to accomplish in your life? Did you settle for the first thing that came your way? Are you still holding that dream somewhere with the hope that “someday” you will pull it out and look at it? What about TODAY? Today is just as good as next month, or next year, or in 10 years, or when the children are gone. Come on let’s take a peek and see what it is.
I give you permission to day dream about that special Dream you have had there for years. Did you ever imagine that “your dream” may actually be your “true life’s calling”? That seed was planted inside you long ago. Now is the time to let it germinate and take root and grow.
We have all heard of those “now famous” people in history who were not famous at all at the time, who are known for their spectacular accomplishments; but not the failures that preceded the accomplishment. Take Thomas Edison. How many times did he try before he succeeded? Thousands and thousands of times. What about you?
Yesterday, I was asked to reset a password. Several tries and hours later, it still wasn’t working. What would you do? Give up, move on, try again later? When we throw in the towel we are not honoring the process and this is what keeps determination alive!
How fast do you throw in the towel and just give up and walk away from your own dreams. May I encourage you to “hold fast” to that dream of yours. A the precise perfect moment in time the moment of opportunity will present itself. Be watching and alert for it. Be ready to seize the moment!
