To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting!
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation…… Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim.
Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself. Always learn to… be what you are, and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not. I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I’ve written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part……..
Dear My Precious Daughter –
Hopes and dreams stimulate our mind and feed our very soul. Nothing beats waking to a day we’ve never seen before. Chasing a dream we’ve never dreamed before. Finding our way through the woods to the clearing.
Nonetheless, Life without goals is like driving your car without knowing the destination. You know your goals so that you can plan to achieve those. If you don’t know you can’t be focused. Dreams and goals are 2 different things because what we want in life starts with a dream….a dream a desire of what we desire to have….to be….to obtain… but unless you put it into ACTION by making it A GOAL…. it will always “stay a dream” within the confines of your brain / mind! Dreams make us feel good because it can be relaxing and bring us peace on “how things can be” but like anything and everyuthing else… WORK has to be involved for us to attain things!
God wants us to grow and writing the vision is not enough…after you write the vision and make it plain …simplistic and practical – ACTION STEPS must follow! ( that is if you desire it to come to pass ) If God allows you to dream it then it is in reach for you to obtain it…. Do not expect God to be your Engine – Engine #9 Train that will come and pick up what you do not feel like doing! Your relationship with Christ is a team effort, so do not sit back and relax just because you know that He has the power..ability and know how to “do it all”…
Dreams and goals are something to live for, to look forward to. Without our dreams and goals, we wouldn’t have much to live for. Dreams keep our hearts alive, that’s the beauty…♥ Do not allow anyone or anything that “take that” part away from you! As individuals, we give up more of ourselves than we actually keep, so FIGHT to keep that part!
