Awaken Your Dreams
What would our lives be like if others whom have gone before us didn’t live their dreams? There would be no places like “The happiest place on earth.” There wouldn’t be Apple. The way for racial equality wouldn’t be paved. Our world and our lives would be different! There are many people who live their dreams, but there are many people who do not. Some people let their dreams die. They let their dreams die because they don’t believe they will ever come true. They believe the people who tell them that their dreams are silly and won’t come true. They let the hardships of their past dictate their present and their future. When difficult times come, they give up too quickly. When too many obstacles come their way, they believe their dreams are not meant to be. When they make a mistake, the overwhelming feeling of being a failure consumes them.
If you have dreams that have died, no matter how much time has passed, resurrect them. The world needs your dreams to come to life. God wants your dreams to come to life. You need your dreams to come to life. Maybe when you were a little girl, you dreamt of being a doctor. Maybe you dreamt of being a poet, a writer or a dancer. Maybe in high school, you realized your passion for helping the homeless, being a teacher or a nurse. Maybe in college, you realized completing a degree wasn’t for you and that you wanted to own your business. Whenever your dream became your dream, whenever it took root in your heart, whatever your dream is, if you’re not living it, it’s time to start living it now.
It’s easy to get consumed with, “Where do I start?” “How will I make it?” “Will I be a success?” Create a beginning, any beginning. Just start. You will make it with boldness, passion, desire, faith, determination, sacrifice and hard work. And yes, you will succeed!
The road to accomplishing your dreams is not a road that is easy. It is filled with unexpected trials, problems and difficulties. Sometimes, the people you start with are not the people you end up with. Some may pray for you to fail. Don’t let that stop you.
I’ve heard people say that many people died without living their dreams. I never want to be one of them. Don’t you be one of them. Give birth to your dreams. Let your dreams live! This is the awakening! ______________________________________________________________________________
