There have been many seasons of struggle for those who are seeking a path on which to live their dreams. They long to find happiness and validation often times with creative ideas that are not welcome.
I applaud the inventors who develop creations that will draw generations out-of-the-box. I am astounded at the beautiful minds of men that have designed tools to assist us in running our households, businesses and international exchanges from the palm of our hand. I am exhilarated by the women who have crashed through the glass ceilings and left the controlling comrades in the glistening dust as they blazed trails through trials and tears for us all. They came out from under blankets of fear to design a new world for all far and near.
What does it take to walk out the adventure you were born to run? How do you explain this to your daughter and son? What keeps one moving when there’s no strength left to get the rest done? How do you manage to temper the tears that stream down your face when you are exhausted and still running the race?
You have a dream in your soul. Acknowledge that you are not the one who put that dream there. You have faith that it will work. Know that you are not the creator of that faith. You have an invitation to live a life of what can be, which is not what you presently see. You possess gifts and talents that you did not deposit into your being. There is a responsibility one must embrace, mostly alone, in the honing of skills that will put you in the right place.
This will lead to the next step on the path and open doors you know did not exist before. Or did they?
Perhaps time was waiting for you. For you to be the person who can see… opportunity that was once muddled and grey and hidden away. Isn’t it time you step into your place, ready to look your dream in the face, and be all that you can be?
