Throughout my life I have had many dreams; some I’ve simply held in my heart while faithfully trusting that The Universe would, deliver them to me in Divine Time, which it always has, and for this I am eternally grateful. However some dreams have required a personal input of committed, consistent, physical effort on my part – the Universe alone can only do so much, even though I am and intrinsic part of it – as is every other living being on earth!
One dream I have had for almost 15 years was to complete writing a book. This naturally required disciplined personal input on my part. I began many attempts at manifesting this dream to no avail, until earlier this year. Finally I dreamed it into reality! Finally I made my dream come true!
Until earlier this year I failed to discipline myself to consistently commit to this dream simply because I doubted my ability to offer a book of worth. I knew I had lots of what I considered good ideas, but I wasn’t sure others would view my ideas in the same light. Furthermore, I feared that my writing wasn’t good enough to clearly convey what I felt deep within my heart.
However after finally throwing caution to the wind I gave my first book my full attention. I felt that if I failed to complete it I would have set let myself down beyond compare. I was failing because I saw myself to some degree as a failure because of some long ago similar suggestion that was seeded to me as a child. I wonder how many people throughout the ages have given up on a dream purely because of someone else’s opinion of their ability – far too many I suspect!
However it is up to each of us to trust our worth and limitless life capability – hence people come our way to suggest otherwise – they are our indirect guides – they challenge us in ways that should in effect inspire us to prove them wrong! It took me far too many years to realize this fact, but when I did there was no stopping me – I kept on writing until I had completed five books in total with more outlined.
I love writing. I may not be a great writer but I am a passionate writer and I know how unfulfilled life feels when passion isn’t pursued. So with that in mind let me state that how well my books are received buy others is not my ultimate priority – my priority is to feel fulfilled in life and writing fulfills me; especially when I see my writing projects through to completion. When I put a full-stop at the end of the last paragraph of any blog, article, poem, children’s song or rhyme I feel not only fulfilled but also elated. I think this is happens purely because I have followed the path of my passion through to the end of its present route.
Everything within the eternal scheme of life has a beginning and an end. If we don’t follow our passions through to completion or to their end we feel disheartened and let down and in doing so gradually lose faith in ourselves to be purposeful life achievers.
Will any of my books ever make a best sellers list? I don’t know and neither do I care. Of course I would like them to
be appreciated by others but as I stated earlier that is not my priority. What I do care about is that I keep following my passion and seeing my every goal set within the paths of my passion through to completion. For far too many years in life I let myself down by not believing I had anything of worth to offer life, but life offers me experiences of great learning worth every day so it is my responsibility as a student of life to confidently show life what I have learned through the art of expression in all I do. Unless I do that how can life discern what it is that I have and have not learned and subsequently continue to teach me that which I still have to learn?
I doubt that I will ever learn all the lessons that life has to offer in one life time, but I do know that life will keep offering me lessons for as long as I live and now I do fully trust myself to continue to be its ardent and confidently expressive student for as long as I live!
Even though I have included the covers of my E-books to illustrate this blog my main purpose in writing it was to simply encourage others always pursue their passions and to never doubt their ability to be able to successfully complete their every desired goal in life even though their mind may at times tell them it’s beyond their capability.
Just because we’ve never done something before, or been trained to do something, or have a diploma that says we can do something does not mean that we cannot accomplish anything that we set our heart and mind to!
We are powerful, limitless, spirited beings here on earth in human form to set our spirits powerfully and passionately free in order to be the limitless beings we were divinely created to be. A mind thought can only ever stop us from reaching our full on earth potential or fulfilling our every on earth dream if we allow it to – a thought is only as powerful as we allow it to be; and a thought that doesn’t serve us can always be changed to a thought that does!
