While sipping the coffee this morning and thinking about my list of projects and to do’s, I thought about the importance of seeing my little ideas to fruition. There was a time in my life when I didn’t realize how content I’d become with just thinking about ideas (and not doing a damn thing about them)…as if those ideas would just magically materialize out of thin air like some Harry Potter fantasy. There are no magic wands…there’s just work. Effort. Consistency. It’s easy to want to do something…it’s more of a challenge to formulate a plan. A dream is just a pretty picture trapped in our heads until we take the time to mold them into reality. Let’s get to work.
Dreams and goals…how important are these elements in our daily lives? How important are they with regard to our growth (personal/professional/everything in between)? Very. We all have our own distinct light at the end of the tunnel that we’re trekking toward; our own summit that we’re seeking. Despite the pitfalls that will inevitably emerge, we owe it to ourselves to endure. The end point is there for those who aren’t afraid to pursue it. Best of days to all.
Survival is a beautiful thing. As is endurance. This race that we’re all on is a challenging thing; it can eat us up and tear us down just as quickly as it can build us up and see us to the finish line. Our perspectives matter. Heart matters. Courage matters. These building blocks create a focus and a drive that kicks into high gear when survival mode emerges. We all have it inside of us already, this gritty determination. The instinct to not only survive, but to thrive, is already there. Let’s let it shine through.
Best of days to all!
