Why is it that life can suck out our ability to dream again. When I was a kid I had all sorts of dreams. But as life has progressed, and difficulties surmount, it seems that I have let life steal away a piece of me.
One of my biggest dreams was to travel. I've always desperately wanted to see Rome and all of Europe. But as financial strain and battling MS pressed in from all sides, it also squeezed out my confidence and dreams. But it doesn't have to be this way. I have begun to rediscover that I can still have goals and dreams. This has given me a new excitement for life, a great anticipation for my future. Yes, it's true that horrible life circumstances can alter some plans but we can't let it define and defeat us. We need to keep reaching for those dreams and then before you know it, you'll be living them.
Here are some practical steps to reclaiming your dreams.
1. Stop the negative thoughts. The more you tell yourself it's not possible or my life is over, the more you start to believe and become that.
2. Renew your mind. Meditate on what is good and true. Prayer, and filling yourself with uplifting and positive thoughts will give you the drive to press on.
3. Start setting goals to accomplish those dreams.
4. Don't be afraid! Do something you've always wanted to do that you never thought was possible.
So, let's start dreaming again and make these dreams a reality!
