WHAT IF YOUR DREAMS DON’T COME TRUE?
That feeling of fear “I want this so bad and it would be heartrending if this dream didn’t come true”, can be devastating.
No matter how much you push this feeling aside, wish it away and pretend it doesn’t exist, it’s still there and it is unswerving.
This has been the story of my life since 2014. I applied for this Leadership Programme that I thought I qualified for but as fate would have it, things didn’t go my way. Most of you understand what it means to put your life on hold, chase after a dream and wake up every morning praying that that dream comes true. This is a dream that I have had over the years and sometimes it is sad to wake up to the reality that your dream is no more, at least for now. But then again this is me giving advice to myself, “Don’t Hold on to what would have been and focus on what will be.” I give this advice to my friends but I feel it’s time I took my own medicine.
I have learnt a lot from this but the take home would be, Life is like a play. We all have a role to play. Wherever you end up in life, you are fulfilling a purpose. It may not go hand-in-hand with the design of your life that you created mentally. However, it fits in beautifully with the design life gives you. We all have the potential to live our dreams, but it is also perfectly OK when your dreams don’t come true. Your life is gorgeous as it is, You are gorgeous as you are, right now.
Hope this inspires you.
Love and Love.
