I’M FINE! REALLY!
How many times in your lifetime have you uttered those few words? I think too many times, if you are asking me.
How many times in your lifetime have you uttered those few words?
I think too many times, if you are asking me.
I’ve done it millions of times I’m sure of it. How do I know? It’s my ‘go to’ answer for everything. Why? Because it’s no one’s business but my own, how I’m really doing. I don’t want to talk about it one more time to one more person, or in my case, to the same people that love me and support me each and every day. I would rather tell a stranger that I’m having a crappy day, then someone I care about. After all, I support them. I shouldn’t expect anything in return. Right?
I have to say though, that this gets tiring. There are days when I just want to say the absolute truth.
The truth is some days just SUCK! Sometimes it’s weeks on end, or months and in some cases it feels and probably is, years. Yep, I’m tired! However, there is one thing that makes all of this just okay and sometimes enlightening. You could say ‘okay’ isn’t enough and I agree, however enlightening is enough.
I absolutely refuse to give up on my dreams. I refuse to live a life of mediocrity. I refuse to be average. I refuse to be like everyone else, in a dead end job, in a dead end relationship, and accepting my status quo rather than fighting for what I believe I deserve.
Some days I doubt what I truly deserve and I make a mess of everything. I doubt, I second-guess myself, and I don’t follow through on anything that is of worth to me in my life and on those days I give up. Tomorrow is always another day to do better and on those days when I’m really tired - tomorrow is a lifesaver. Tomorrow, I go about making my dreams come true because I’m still not prepared to give up.
I have a friend Joyce that bought me a picture years ago with a saying on it – I hang it in my living room where I see it everyday. It reads:
‘No matter how impossible it may seem, never underestimate the power of a dream.’ (D.Morgan)
What are you doing about your dreams? Are you choosing to settle? Have you given up?
Mel Robbins, in the video attached, talks about the odds of anyone of us being born and alive.
How to stop screwing yourself over.
She says the chances are 1 in 400, 000, 000, 000, 000 and most of us spend our lives wasting it rather than seeking out why we are here on this earth at this time. We squander this miracle by not realizing our potential. Are you one of those people? If you are, get your SHIT together, and make a move. Your time on earth is short. Don’t waste it in some useless job or unfulfilling relationship.
Make your heart soar by going after your dreams. Don’t give up.
