I had a great conversation with a woman in my 30 day AHA! Moments: Basics accountability group the other day. We were talking about goals and really focusing in on one that pulls at your heart and head and her comment to me was along the lines of 'I've never really had a personal goal. I guess I've just been wondering through life.'
This really struck me as this woman has a great career, volunteers and is a leader in the community, and has a very full social calendar. By all outside appearances she knows what she wants and really is a go get-er.
But on the inside, she's just wondering through life, going and doing what everyone else around her is doing, never stopping to ask, "Is this something I want to put my time, energy, and focus into?"
We all have season's like this, where we're not sure what our next step, or goal, should be and we just go with the flow and see where the wind takes us. Life really is a create your own adventure, BUT without a map you can quickly end up somewhere you don't, or shouldn't, want to be. Overextended, exhausted, stressed, anxious, and just plain old lost all come to mind when I think about living life without knowing where I'm going and why I'm going there.
DREAM your heart out about what you wish your life was like!
DREAM about where you'd live, where you'd travel, the experiences you'd have, then, when you have a clear picture of what you want TAKE THE FIRST STEP and make that DREAM your GOAL!
EVEN if you're not ready,
EVEN if you aren't sure exactly how,
EVEN if you're afraid because the only way to make that DREAM your reality is to take that first step.
And then the next one, and the next one, and the next one.
If you never take a step, then you only have a dream.
