I Need A Swift Kick, No Excusses

Some times, if I’m feeling low (which is rare) I see life through “eyes” that are disappointed and dejected because of a loss of faith in my ability to realize my dreams. My excuses are often due to a lack of money, fear of ridicule or failure, and feelings of being tied to a present situation with no way out. I imagine that all of us have experienced these feelings at one time or another. As for me a negative feeling is only temporary, I realize, “this to shall pass”, and although it may not feel like it, I need to believe that my dreams are actually within my reach.

 I think we all have the ability to achieve our dreams, but we may just need to adjust how we look at them. In other words, we may need to look at them from a different perspective.  Rather than give up on what I want to accomplish I have begun a diligent effort of brainstorming, all of the various ways to accomplish my dreams, no matter how silly or crazy these solutions may seem. By writing down and considering every single idea, hoping this will open my mind to all of the possibilities, and bringing me closer to reality.

After considering the possibilities I will pick a solution, steps I can do right now, or at least begin the process, taking steps toward achieving my dreams, who knows, in the process I may find myself going in a slightly different direction; serendipity happens, and it happens more often when I actively engage in achieving something important.  "Nothing ventured, nothing gained." I need to let go of old excuses and start thinking about ways to realize my desires.  When I do I know I feel better about me and how wonderful I feel once my journey to achieve begins! Sometimes I need a kick in the butt to do it.
