In order to accommodate personal growth or self development, sometimes we need to incorporate changes, we need to make choices and we need to allow growth to happen, in whatever form that growth may appear, if it is a single step forward in any direction, it is growth. The challenges in life happen because life happens, and often we have no control over what happens in life, what makes it interesting is how we react to what life throws at us, how we adapt our dreams to fit in with where we are in the big scheme of things.
The important thing is to never quit dreaming, if you have an image in your mind of what you want to happen, keep that image as a reality, then work backward from there to make the dream happen. If it turns out that you can only do a portion of your dream right now, then make the portion important, if all you have is a piece then make the piece fit the picture you have, the rest of the pieces will come.
It is always up to you to decide what you want out of life, and believe me i have learned through experience that life is guaranteed to no one, tomorrow may or may not happen, so waiting to do what makes you happy only puts off that chance to be happy. Let your happiness happen, write your book, paint your picture, take the courses, find the job that makes you smile, you should never have to suffer while you’re making someone else rich, your life is too important, your light needs to shine for you… today!
Smile because you are you, you don’t have to settle, and don’t think you are settling if sometimes you have to change things a little, if you are making something happen that makes you smile then that is growing not settling.
Positive thoughts bring positive things, a bird won’t ask why, it’s just happy to sing.
