Never give up on what is truly important to you

– Anonymous

I’m sure we have all heard this quote in some form or another. It’s one that will stand the test of time. The pursuance of happiness is what it’s really about on some level. But in this day in age, when social and economic pressures are sooo high, how does one stay true to this? Most people fall into their work positions in life. Letting whatever falls into their lap be what they do for the rest of their lives instead of a childhood dream they once had. Does that make them feel like they aren’t pursuing the life they were truly ment to live? Or was that their destiny? They say that sometimes what you want isn’t always what you need.

A lot of people find love and get married. Next thing you know, their whole life is turned around and they find themselves in a place they never thought that they would be. Are they happy? Those people always seem to say that the love fulfills them now, but deep down inside, do they mean it? How do you keep hope alive when things seem so out of reach sometimes? I think that our obsession with athletes and celebrities has to do with the dream….the dream they got to achieve after so much hardship. They seem so grateful and are rewarded so handsomely. You know that they never settled on being anything less than what they wanted to be, which is a very very attractive thing in a person. I think that is why there is also a backlash at the same circle people. We want to tear them down a little so we can feel better about our own lives and what we haven’t accomplished in life.

So how do you tell the difference between what ¬†you¬†truly wanting in your life and something that isn’t ment for you. A friend of mine has a good indicator. ¬†When she is hitting something truly authentic, she starts to cry. ¬†When she starts to cry, she knows she has hit a nerve ¬†with something and realize’s that ¬†it’s something she needs to work on or pursue. I don’t know if this is the answer to everything but it sounds like a good one to me. For those who have a little confusion in your life, let’s try and cry a little people! I bet we will get more answers than we think!!

If you have any other thoughts on the matter, please feel free to comment. Thanks!

“A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.”

– Cato the Elder

I must have 10,000 bushels of brains in my head right now because I am becoming one patient m**********r! I have never had a lot of patience with life. I drive fast, I don’t save money because I’m always “needing” something, and if I don’t curb my food cravings in the very moment that I need to, I can become a real mean bitch! I think that is where a lot of my anxiety comes from………. and my credit card debt. I always have felt like I’m in great need of “catching up” with something. I have a feeling, that I am not the only one who feels this way.

Since my long “sabbatical” I have realized that patience is a really important thing. It provides that we have trust in wherever life takes us. That is an extremely hard thing for me. I always like to know where I’m going unless some man is sweeping me off my feet on a spontaneous, romantic, adventure. Seeing that has never happened, ¬†trust is not my strong suit. Patience has taught me that I actually need more trust in life’s journey. ¬†Everything is going to be ok. There is no where I am supposed to be but here, even if it’s not the exact place I’d like to be.

Patience has also shown me that you reap the emotional rewards when something finally gets accomplished in your life. All the waiting and doubting has finally fallen to the way side and a rush of absolute confidence and euphoria is embraced when you see that your patience has paid off with a project or relationship that you have been working on. ¬†When you get to reap that kind of reward, I must say, it’s worth more than gold. Your whole aspect on life can change. And that’s a pretty big deal!

Lastly, I have realized that sometimes you need to let things “simmer”. Sometimes, you’re just not ready for all the things you want from life. As much as you really want them now, deep down inside ¬†you know you’re not prepared mentally or emotionally. I think about all the things I wanted when I was younger. If I had gotten them then, I can assure you I would be a major mental case. I wouldn’t be able to handle all the pressure that having “everything” can give you. There is a lot of responsibility, problems, and confusion, that comes with getting everything you want. With that being said, I guess patience can also show you¬†wisdom.

Patience can be a funky thing but also a good one to have in your back pocket. Now if I can just hurry up and get to all the good stuff that patience provides, that would be the great!
