It’s interesting isn’t it when you go through life and look back on certain events. I remember a particular occassion that I felt completely wronged yet the person who had wronged me had assumed (wrongly) that I would not stand up for what I believed in. He kept pushing and pushing, as much as I hate conflict this was one event that I had to battle.
In my heart I knew it was what I had to do. I also knew that if I didn’t stand up for what was right, then this person would continually treat others with major disrespect.
About a year ago, I was losing my fire, I just felt like may be after all my fight in chasing my dreams, may be I should just give up. It was taking too long, was I even getting anywhere? At first, it was not just my dream to achieve, but a big dream that was for my children to witness and when they were ready to follow, chase their own dreams.
I had a person, who I had never met before, come to my home. She respectfully asked me, if she could tell me something… “You have lost your fire,” she said. She told me that she was driving to my home and saw a great big fire at my house but when she drove to the front of it, the fire dissipated.”
We had a little chat about how I just felt my dream was getting pushed away, I felt exhausted and run down and all those lies that we give ourselves I started to believe. Every day I had slowly told myself how I didn’t need to live my dreams anymore, that it was too hard with children and growing a family and that I should just accept the track I was on.
Thankfully, after I spoke with her, I realised that the lies I was telling myself were complete bullcrap! (And excuse me, I don’t normally add bad words to my written word, however, I want you to know how wrong it was!).
My dreams are everything, they are the cumbersome of who I am and to give up on them would only lead to a life filled with no passion, no excitement, no dreams… how sad.
Having fire is important, having the dream cemented in your brain more so. You need the dreams and you need the fire to go chase your dreams. Now spread your wings and fly. Big dreams aren’t achieved over night that’s why they are big!
