I recently saw an interview Oprah did with Jon Bon Jovi and he said he wanted to be a guy that gave it his best shot and go after his dream instead of never going for it.
Knowing that we may fail if we pursue a dream is tough. However, when you think about the alternative, is that any better?
For me, I will keep going after my dreams. As they continue to come to fruition, it motivates me to climb even higher mountains.
What about you? Do you believe in yourself? Do you have the determination to strive for what you want?
Ok, I admit it…..I am a Gleester.
I find the show, Glee entertaining, creative and, often inspiring.
In the most recent episode, here are some lines I thought were very poignant:
“I want you to promise me no matter how depressed you get; no matter how hopeless and alone you feel, you’ll try your best to imagine all the amazing experiences you have ahead of you.”
Sometimes, it is easy to want to give up. Don’t! Think of all you would miss out on?
What big things are you looking forward to? Go for it!
Nurturing is important in achieving balance, or as I now say harmony in your life….time alone/time with others and between work and play.
There are times where I know things have gotten out of whack and that becomes a reminder that I need to step back and engage in some self care to regain my equilibrium. When I take this time it refills my energy, compassion and kindness, and I am happier, more fulfilled and productive in my life.
Nurturing ourselves is personal so what nurtures me may not be the same for you.
If you are not sure, ask yourself, “What can I do right now that would feel good?”
- Taking a walk?
- Calling a friend?
- Taking a few deep breaths?
