How many of you tend to let your dreams and envisions for your “ideal life” get the best of you at times? Well, trust me you are not alone. You know what they say, we all want what we don’t have. But what about stopping to think once in a while what you do have. And not in the cliche kind of way. Of course, we are all grateful to have food on our plates, some sort of family and a roof over our home.
I’m talking about the things we have that we don’t realize we have; the things that were once merely on our “want” list.
I personally tend to think about the “what ifs” and the “dont’s” from time to time, primarily when it comes to the oh so scary future, financial issues and career opportunities. However, whenever I find myself getting like this I try to remember that many of the things I now have (a loving boyfriend I wouldn’t trade for the world, a happy & healthy relationship with my body, a super cute North End apartment) were once on my “want” lists.
You see, many of those hopes and dreams from months/years/decades ago are now a reality for many of us, even though we may not realize this now. When you think of it this way, those doubts slip away as you can see clearly that many of our little worries and doubts are most likely to come true. Maybe not now. But they will, eventually. That is, if we keep on dreamin’ them.
So I encourage you to always keep dreaming. Never stop. I know I won’t.
