A Lost Ship On A Sea of Dreams

When you imagine your life in terms of what is going right, what stands out to you the most? Your family, your job, the fact you wake up everyday or the fact you have food on your table and a place to live? I believe everyone has at least one thing to be thankful for. Life is a gift in itself.

"The difference between fiction and reality is that in fiction everything has to make sense." -Tom Clancy
This quote couldn't be more true.

Like everyone does one time or another, we tend to think life is falling short of our dreams. Reality is not as fun or not as enjoyable as a month-long adventure gallivanting about the wild west on the back of a mustang with a handsome cowboy beside you or eating dinner with a doctor at a villa in Rome or (if it strikes your fancy) winning the Super Bowl with your dream team. Whichever dream inspires you to pursue life, it is a dream worth having indeed. But I've realized the hard way that those dreams can alter your reality. Sometimes you hope for so much more from life than you are receiving. When what you have is way more than enough for you to handle.

An exercise that works is to take time from your day to reflect on life's little blessings. If you created your time chart from last post, then you must know if you have time to use or not. Just take up to 5 minutes (no more) and look at all the good around you. According to experts, it helps to quench unhappiness and inspire a more positive outlook on life.

Remember, just because your dreams don't continue when you wake up, you can always turn them into a lifelong goal. Doesn't it feel great to have something to look forward to at the end of a long day of work? A long day watching the kids? A long day listening to a lecture at school? The money or education your earning today can go towards those long-term goals and each day you're involved in those activities your goals are becoming shorter and shorter.

One day, I will have a degree in something and I will be writing a book in a small cottage in Ireland.

What inspires you to live?

Happy writing!
