Our wisdom for the week is based off an image I saw in my facebook thread last week. It is amazing how many inspirational/motivational images I see in one day 🙂 I am pretty sure I need to start clarifying who says them so others can properly reference…
If we honestly sat and thought about how many dreams/goals we have fulfilled what would you come up with? Typically people do not reach their dreams/goals because they gave up or did not believe it would come true. Just like a child on their birthday we have to faithfully know our dream will come to reality, but we have to be persistent and patient. I remember when I was single and no children I wanted to get my doctorate but changed my plans and went to work instead (thinking I will get it later). After having my oldest daughter, I briefly gave up on ever fulfilling my goal and just focused on being a single mother..right before the birth of my second daughter I was determined and realized I had to get the doctorate but it wasn’t possible with two young girls (thoughts that ran through my head). Now look at me – completed my first year of classes! Even though our family (me and the girls) have rough moments I know that I can persevere and soon cross the finish line of doctoral school. I realize it has taken me time to focus on this part of my education, but I wouldn’t trade that time for anything for I am enjoying motherhood and all the experiences that come with it.
What dreams/goals have you pushed the pause button on? Take time, revive your belief, and persist for that achievement is closer than you think!
