To me this said are you serious about your goals/dreams or just playing around.
It’s not the start of the year, beginning of the month or even week for that matter; but I feel the need for change. This image was part of a post my cousin posted and it got me thinking.
Living on Purpose is about actively doing things that propel me forward in achieving my goals or dreams. Choosing actions or creating opportunities regularly to expand my knowledge, increase my portfolio and not just waiting for them to “happen”.
So, I’m going to pray and create a plan of “Purpose” regarding photography and fitness/nutrition. I don’t expect it to be easy and I may stumble, but I believe that once God puts something in your heart; and you set your mind to it— He will help bring it to pass.
Today I cried…..
My niece inspired me so much today. She and her family are launching out into the deep after a dream. (http://www.proceedtoparadise.com/).
I cried because at 20 something she isn’t afraid to take a chance on her dreams, but at 40 something I have been. So many things I have “pondered” doing but never acted upon. Dreams kept silent, Ideas never pursued.
FEAR is more than just a bump in the dark; or a shadow in the dark. FEAR is that whisper “what if it doesn’t work”, “what if my friends laugh”. FEAR is that thing that keeps you from pursuing unspoken dreams or trying new things.
So, I cried, but when I stopped crying I stepped out into “something new”. I published my very first blog page (something I have pondered for a while) Today, I looked FEAR in the face and said “OH WELL, I am going to give it a try anyway!”.
Today, I opened the door to new things, possibilities and waters uncharted. Today I said “Okay” to the voice of adventure and discovery that has been whispering inside of me.
I don’t know what tomorrow holds. I accept that all outcomes may not be what I want or the way that I want; but I am willing to take the step and see.
I am excited about my future and all that life brings.
