Don’t Quit

Funny how we look at dreams and think it’s only a “dream”… in doing so you already kind of “give up”. I think a lot about dreams and visions and which of the two words might be the better one to use.

A dream is something so wonderful. Magical. Something nice, positive. A wish. Because we see it that way we might wonder or even doubt that we’d ever get there. Maybe it seems unreal.

A vision is a goal. Something we consider achievable even if it might seem so far away, maybe almost impossible to achieve. But it’s doable. We can see a way to make it happen.

I wonder if we make our dreams more real by turning them into visions? I guess that’s why this meme has struck a chord with me.

Don’t be an ironing board! Don’t quit!

Adjust the Sails…

Sometimes our journey is smooth, easy. Sometimes it feels like battling a storm. Recently I listened to a woman talking about chasing your dreams. About dreaming big and reaching for the stars.

She said trust in the universe but also detach yourself from the outcome. The universe has plans for you and if your plans and the ones the universe has for you don’t overlap, you will be pushed into the right direction. And it will all be fine in the end.

I believe too often we fight that moment. We are so set on what we think is right that we don’t see the other options or possibilities. We fight the storm rather than adjusting the sails. And maybe we miss out on the ride of a lifetime.

So next time don’t be scared. Adjust your sails. Use the wind to push you forward and sail with it…
