Hello dear! It’s been a long time since I last posted an article! I actually planned to level up by posting multiple times per week, but then, life and reality came along. I’m a university student with part-time jobs, and even though I’d want this blog to grow, I’m still a student that has to deal with her reality! This is why I had to put aside my beloved blog for some time, and I really missed it. You may be going through something similar right now, you’re working on your dream and you would want to invest more on it, but also you have other things you have to work through. If this is your case, I want to tell you, don’t give up! Don’t let your dream, your goal, or that special project you have, die.
In our journey towards our dreams, we will always have other things that will get in the way.
We are all busy with life. You might be a student like me, you might have a job (or jobs) you need while working on your dreams, maybe you have a family to take care of. On top of all these things, there are also distractions to tempt us and deceive us to mismanage our time and energy. There are so many things that can block us from going forward!
It can be really hard to be diligent in working on your dreams, I know it very well. You might be tempted to give up on what you’re working on, to procrastinate and think “maybe one day, I’ll do it”, to just let go, give up and accept your situation.
A lesson I’m still trying to learn is to live proactively.
Everything, in some degree, depends only on you.
We tend to look for excuses, easy exits. These can be things or people that we can blame instead of ourselves. At the end, you always have to make a choice. Do you want it or not?
You have to really want it, to desire it so strongly, that giving up is not an option. That you can only think “I can, I must, and I want it.”
Sometimes you(we) will fail, sometimes you(we) will need to take a break and to rest. And it’s ok. But then, after that, roll up your sleeves again and go back to work. You can do it, you must do it because you want it.
I want to challenge you as I’m re-challenging myself. Is giving up your dreams and goals worth it?
I love using questions as the right ones can really reveal our deepest thoughts and emotions. So, take a deep breath and ask yourself these questions with absolute sincerity.
- What do you really want?
- Are you doing what you have to do to accomplish it?
- Is anything distracting you, holding you back from doing the right thing?
- If things like family, your job, health problems etc. are holding you back, are there other ways you can do to create more time or save energy for your goals and dreams? (Think outside the box! There are always different ways you can help yourself to maximize your time, tasks and energy.)
- Can you pay the price of getting rid, or at least limiting, distractions/hindrances for the sake of your goals and dreams? (It can be your favorite tv show, chatting on the phone, going out etc.).
Conclusion: don’t give up!
Life is life. It’s unpredictable, challenging, busy, distracting, and so on. But it’s also fun, creative, and worth living.
This last month has been really challenging for me. We all want to be happy, relaxed, healthy and feel fulfilled, but there are moments when we have to face also the “uglier”, boring, harder, and stressful parts of our lives.
Despite all of these, don’t give up on what you really want to achieve 🙂
It may take longer than what you expected it would take, it may be harder that what you’ve imagined. But if you really want it, you still want it even if it means to wait and work a little more.
Don’t give up! Keep pushing, kicking and laughing! 😉
