When Did it Start for You?
Have you let go of youthful hopes and dreams? If so, when did it happen? When did you let the dreams of your future aspirations escape into the days of your life?
For most it’s something that happens before we know it… before we even notice the north star in the sky of our vision is obscured from view. It’s typically in the “summer of our lives”, where the canopy of greenery in the forest of days hides the sky of clarity.
We come to know the terrain of the forest and find comfort in the familiar. To venture beyond or climb the tallest tree to see what we can see, is scary. We become enmeshed in the vines of comfort, of routine, of the familiar, and less inclined to venture beyond this forest home into a land of unknown outcomes.
At some point it’s easier to not forge the trail of possibilities or walk the treacherous passage of chance and scale the walls of change.
Sure, the view would probably be great, but this… this is safe. It may be for you that is the life you choose, and that is also a beautiful thing: to be at peace where one is, as one is. The forest, filled with the plants and trees we have nurtured, loved, and know with our eyes closed, makes for a lovely home.
But have you ever felt that something is missing… that perhaps you’re not living the life you might have lived or dreamed of?
If you’ve ever had that nagging feeling of anxiety or depression, that’s actually good news.
Because here’s the great news: It’s never too late to be more tomorrow than we are today. These are—or can be—the best years of your life, if you choose to make it so.
This is the fall of our life where it’s time to show all our colors and harvest the garden of growth we’ve obtained… and then to plant some more.
So now it’s your time.
No Matter What: If you’re not yet thrilled with how things are turning out so far, don’t worry. You’re not alone, AND there’s a solution that will turn things around… IF…
IF you want it enough to push through and persevere no matter what.
Now is the time to spread your wings and fly.
Publish Your Story: Remember, your story may help someone else, and often the sharing of our story helps us too! So “publish” your story by first sharing snippets of what you love about your life and how it is you’re living each day. We will collect these into a collage or meme of optimism to share with and inspire us all.
