To truly trust the desires of your heart and outlive them?
We all have those special dreams and desires for our lives that are hidden within our hearts. Some may be ones that are lying dormant until the “right time” and others may be ones that you have let go of all together.
Whatever situation you may find yourself in, when we don’t understand how to link our dreams and passions to our current lifestyle, it can bring on emotions like anxiety, frustration and inadequacy – as if all hope has diminished. Not a good feeling is it?
I have experienced these emotions for myself and have seen many other people fall victim to it too; that fear of missing out when the puzzle of life doesn’t fall perfectly into place, or when our path diverges into another or even when we fail at something we worked so hard for. It becomes a kind of pressure that ends up deflating any zest of passion that we once had to pursue those dreams in the first place.
I believe we will all face these emotions at some point in our life, but they are unnecessary fears and pressures to carry. Especially if you can get your head around the fact that those dreams and desires can still come into fruition, just maybe not in your time frame or in the way you had imagined.
It’s time to let go of those unhealthy emotions like anxiousness and inadequacy, because who needs to know the blue print of your life plan? At the end of the day, life is a journey and there is always going to be something that will pop up and take you by surprise. Let’s re-assess and awaken the things that excite your spirit and break you free from a humdrum life. Life is far too short to not be living it the way you want, and just like the quote above, we have a world to set on fire girl!
So, for today’s Monday Motivation, how about we start by re-igniting those desires and dreams that stir your spirit?
Let’s direct the focus back to your purpose, because when you align yourself with these things, satisfaction, peacefulness and joy will naturally flow in abundance, enabling you to FULLY experience this journey called life WITHOUT the fear of missing out!
Allow me to fan the flame to those desires and dreams that are deep within you by asking these questions… (Drag the below two images onto your desktop to print out then jot down your answers. Be sure not not dismiss the first thought that pops into your head as you read the questions)
I really hope these questions have sparked something inside of you because I am absolutely certain that if you compare the two pages, the first page will display enough reasons for you to feel inspired to pursue your passions and dreams over the reasons why you shouldn’t.
Don’t forget that those wonderful dreams and desires are tailor made for your heart. They are not there to tease you or to get your hopes up, but to entice you to live them as a reality. They are there to keep you believing there IS more for you. Let this hope build in your heart, and passion burn in your spirit as you BELIEVE and TRUST that GREATER THINGS ARE YET TO COME.
Hold fast to your purpose and take each step, each day, each opportunity, each set back and each victory, as part of the journey that leads you to living the life your have always imagined…because you, my friend, are made to live an exciting and adventurous life.
