“As long as I kept my mental focus on the destinations that were ahead, destinations that I had the audacity to dream… I protected myself from despair. The future was uncertain, absolutely, and there were many hurdles, twists, and turns to come, but as long as I kept moving forward, one foot in front of the other, the voices of fear and shame, the messages from those who wanted me to believe that I wasn’t good enough, would be stilled. “Go forward. That became my mantra”
From the Pursuit of Happiness by Chris Gardner
And so dear heart, I ask you this morning, as per the above quotation…
What destinations are ahead for you? What destinations do you have the audacity to dream?
This year seems to be moving so fast. Some of you are very pleased with what you have already accomplished this year so far. Others of you are disappointed that you were not able to keep going at the pace that you started with.
Please don’t let any feelings of disappointment or anxiety over what did or didn’t happen so far this year, steal your peace. Feel those feelings, don’t keep them bottled up inside. Write about them if you have to, cry about them if you feel like it, and then just let them go. The treasures they brought you will lay at your feet and you will feel lighter for having done that.
Remember that life is always there beckoning to you with a new moment, a new hour, a new day, a new week, a new month, a new year, a new life. You are always given another opportunity, another chance, another choice, to go for your dreams. You need only reach out and grab it.
Every day is a new day, with new possibilities just waiting there for you.
What will you allow yourself to achieve today?
Where will you put your focus this morning?
If any doubts or feelings of unworthiness creep in as you go about your day, will you make the choice to gently release them? No resistance, just a gentle letting go?
What one step will you take toward your dream on this new day.
Will you make the choice once again to move forward, one foot in front of the other, a brave and gentle soul, no matter what? I hope so!
