You are the only thing blocking your dreams...

Mary Manin Morrissey said it best, "You block your dream when you allow fear to grow bigger than your faith." Since we were small we all had something innate in us...something that we really wish we could do in life. A number of people push the dream under the carpet and move through life ignoring their dream ever existed thinking it was just a dream not a life they could actually live. I think that is a fearful cop out! As we evolve as humans and our awareness expands we are beginning to wake up and realize ANYTHING is possible! Those who live life from a fearful perspective are the ones who still need to smell the coffee but they are where they are supposed to be. No one says we can't shake them awake though! How do we do it? This is the easiest question I have ever answered. We live it! The only way we can change anything is by doing it our self and letting the ripples in water do their magic. In life we can have compassion and love others openly but the only one we are responsible for is ourselves. When I say we are the only one responsible for ourselves I am referring to how we perceive and respond to life. No one is going to smile for us, no one is going to put our foot forward and get a job for us, no one is going to decide if we will be angry, sad or mad. We are responsible for ourselves and therefore if we want to make our dreams come true we need to realize that it is possible if we let go of our doubt and grab a hold of our faith. If you believe it is impossible then it is. It goes back to the old saying, "where there is a will there is a way".
Now that you have had this epiphany and feel motivated to move, to let go of fear and move in a different direction, what is it you want to do? You can do anything! Anything is possible remember. Wait, there is a price to pay for everything you say? Well with every action there is an opposite and equal reaction, so yes in a sense, but if you look at it like its a horrible thing like "paying for it" than you will never make your dream come true. All this means is you need to alter your plans or think outside the box. It can happen, and it can be a win win, you just need to let your faith know exactly what it is you want. If you want that dream job but it entails you moving to another state you may be worried about how it will effect your family. Your children may have to go to another school and your parents and siblings may really miss you. So forget it! Never mind...I will just stay here and keep the same job I have always had and make everyone happy...except myself. Um, NO! Where there is a will there is a way! Go after your dream and find a way to make it happen and have faith that everything will be ok! You children will adjust and your family will be ok. It's unfair of you to stop living your dream so that everyone else can be happy.
So what is it you want to do? How is it you want to live? The choice is yours! You can do whatever you want! You really can!
