Most of our life we spend our days fighting things we cannot control and this is what causes frustration in our lives.
Spiritually, it is said that we align ourselves with this story so much so, that this is what we identify as success and as a result, not achieving this goal becomes a big blow to our self worth.
As a child, we are exposed to many influences and this may sway us from finding our true passions.
The thought process may go something like this….
Long ago and buried in our unconscious is a student of life who mistakenly identified this idea to his/her success. Day in and out, he/she aligned their lives with supporting ideas to push and keep this dream afloat and when it started to sink, they become depressed, disappointed and their self worth took a tremendous blow and it began to affect every other aspect of their lives. It was too heartbreaking to give up that dream because he/she felt like the world around them would call them a failure but most importantly they were letting down that little dreamer inside and that is what hurt the most.
How many of us have attached ourselves to the wrong dreams early on for whatever reasons. We went through all the rituals sometimes succeeding and sometimes failing yet still never feeling intrinsic happiness. What are we doing wrong?
The truth is, little dreamer in you just wants to be happy and happy comes in all shapes and sizes. The expectations we have set upon ourselves are sometimes unrealistic and many times based on someone else’s idea of success. My gut tells me that we are surrounded with little dreamers who are in need of changing their stories.
So to all you little dreamers, it’s time to edit your story and tweak the pages or perhaps it’s time to change the story altogether! And guess what, all of that is ok and actually encouraged. It’s not too late!
