Are you wishing or working? That's the question of the day. I know the question is a little harsh this Monday morning, but I have come to realize when it comes to these two they can often be confused. For many (including myself at times), a dream can come alive in our spirit and we begin to develop the faith to see it realized. Whether is it is a dream of starting a business, writing a book, creating a healthy lifestyle or nurturing a special relationship.
We envision the joy it will bring when we achieve our goals and we get excited about the possibilities . . . but that's where it stops. Soon the realities and pressures of life move in causing those thoughts of joy be placed in a proverbial box on the shelf with all the others dreams and wishes for your life.
I challenge you today to take a moment to pause and ask yourself, "Do you really want it?" I mean to you REALLY want it or is it just something you are holding on to? Is that thing you placed on the shelf important enough for you to you unpack it, dust it off and to breathe life back into it? Is it worth it? Does it matter? Will it provide the joy and satisfaction you have so longed for?
