Are you a "Dreamer" ? If you are, be happy. Dreams provide the direction that consciously and subconsciously move us from where we are now to where we want to be. That doesn't mean that there is not hard work or disappointments. But, hang onto those dreams and bit by bit you will move toward what you want. And, don't worry if the dreams change specific direction because we are always "wanting to know what we'll be when we grow up " . The truth is, we are always growing up.
I am writing this because I need to remind myself of this message from time to time, too. Following ones dreams requires a "stick-to-idness" , a recurring determination that gets you back on track when you fall off the path. At age 52 I decided that running would be good for me and I dreamt of gliding along the running path by the river with ease. Following the guidance of running books, I started with a run - walk routine. My first run was: run 30 seconds and walk three minutes. It was hard and, I must admit to missing some mornings, the dream persisted and the run times got longer until, at age 54, I was running, without stopping 20 km. I never looked as beautiful a runner as in my dreams, but the achievement and satisfaction was there.
Just before heading back to Canada, I created this website. I can tell you all sorts of excuses for not having posted in this blog while traveling; but I won't. I won't take on guilt. Like running, I'll just get back at it.
You Can Be Whatever You Want To Be!by: Donna Levine
There is inside you
All of the potential
To be whatever you want to be;
All of the energy
To do whatever you want to do.
Imagine yourself as you would like to be,
Doing what you want to do,
And each day, take one step
Towards your dream.
And though at times it may seem too
difficult to continue,
Hold on to your dream.
One morning you will awake to find
That you are the person you dreamed of,
Doing what you wanted to do,
Simply because you had the courage
To believe in your potential
And to hold on to your dream.
