Do you dream? What do you dream of? Is it a land far away or a place that is close to your heart. Do you ever wonder what they mean? Are they a place where days crash together into one big dark mess or are they the pieces that lead to our future? To be honest, I have no idea. I often wonder how thoughts come into our minds while we rest. How everything seems so real, but yet so far from the present. I often ask God to speak to me in my dreams, to show me things. But then I get scared. What if he shows me something that I don’t want to see! What if the truth is what I don’t want to hear! What if he wants me to do something that is beyond my comfort zone! Then I back away and think….I’m good, forget about that request.
I often dream that I am flying. Soaring, diving and sweeping over the land. Do you know in order to fly…that you have to fall. Even birds know that you have to jump at some point because if not they would never leave the nest. What nest are you living in? What leap do you need to take?
I often wonder the same about myself. What’s next? What do I need to do? Often the thing I am most resistant to, is the thing that I need to do the most.
One of the things that I have been putting off lately is running. I really want to do it, but I know it’s going to hurt. I have been away from it for so long, that the thought of starting again makes me cringe. I use to be able to run miles with no problem, but now I have no idea how to even start. My mind keeps reminding me of where I once was and it deters me because I am not at that place right now. I am at the beginning. The place where you have to push through the pain, in order to get the reward. My least favorite place. The place that requires energy in order to overcome your thoughts and force your body to move. Everyday I say that I will do it tomorrow, but tomorrow hasn’t come yet. To be honest, I’m a little prideful. I don’t want anyone to see me running so slow…stopping…catching my breath. I am embarrassed. I need to jump! I might fall, but if I don’t…I will never get the feeling of flying.
What have you been putting off? What do you need to overcome? Some how tomorrow needs to become today! But how? That’s something I am still working on myself! I suggest you put it out there to the universe, because once it’s out it cannot come back and it makes you accountable to your words. So I am going to run before the weeks over! You heard it! Not it’s your turn! Put it out there and give it an end date! We got this! I know it sounds simple, but how many things are you waiting to still start! Tomorrow isn’t promised, so don’t let your days run out!
