What is it that your heart truly desire? If you could have anything in this world right now, what would it be? For many of us, this would be a dream come true, to finally have all that we’ve ever desired. Sadly, life just doesn’t work that way. Instead, we have to remain hopeful and keep believing.
There are so many things that I dream of accomplishing. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in these dreams that I find myself being overly critical when it doesn’t seem to manifest in my timing. I become depressed, anxious, and disappointed whenever things seem complacent. I have to remind myself to be patient and take things one day at a time. Nothing that is beautiful happens overnight. It requires patience, dedication, and hard work to manifest any dream.
While this is easier said than done, the hardest part of it all is staying true to myself, and believing that everything I’m dreaming of will happen in due time. As faith driven as I try to be, it’s sometimes difficult to not question my faith when circumstances aren’t looking favorable. This also causes me to lose sight of the direction I’m intended to journey on. Luckily, my daily self-reflection helps me become centered and refocused.
At this point in my life, I’m making the decision to remain determined. I will keep my eyes on the prize without looking back. I will remain tunneled vision and block out anything that may serve as a distraction on this journey. The moment I fall off track, I’m going to dust myself off and keep pushing forward.
At any given time in life we may face losses and forget why we even want to accomplish something, but it’s up to us on how we handle these situations. Me personally, I’ve taken many L’s between the beginning of my spiritual journey and where I am today. However, the difference between then and now is that I’ve learned how to handle these losses effectively. Instead of looking at the negative aspect of the loss, I look at it as an opportunity to grow and learn.
I’ve come a very long way. But, it doesn’t stop here. There’s still more ways to go. I have to continue to believe in myself more than anything in this world, and trust that I am being guided every step of the way. It’s not going to be easy, but I know deep down it’s going to be worth it.
I challenge you to do the same. Trust and believe in yourself and whatever it is you want to accomplish, and always remain patient. Whatever it is that your heart desire will soon be yours.
