When I look at this new photo of my granddaughter, I see so many things. Yes, she is beautiful, but I also see promise, hope for the future, a look at all of the wonderful things that are ahead, and even if there are difficult days, difficult months, even difficult years, there is promise.
Yesterday afternoon I was feeling downright cranky. I had been to an auction and the auction was good. I bought six new things for my shop so I have some new things to list along with the other things that are sitting here waiting to be photographed.
After the auction I went to an antique mall to check out their booths, because I need to expand where I am selling. They had just opened up a new room and the spaces were just bare spots. That means I would have to build my own walls. There was a time when I could do that, but I am just not physically able to now and I was having a bad pain day from my fall. I was feeling discouraged and cranky.
This morning when I woke up I checked my email first thing and saw there was a post from Marc and Angel Hack Life. It was titled 12 Negative Thoughts Holding You Back. The article was very good and I recommend that you read it.
Number 12 said this:
“I don’t have time to dream.” – The real tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your dream; it lies in having no dream to reach. Devote yourself to an idea you believe in. Follow your gut. Overcome your fears. Work on it. Struggle with it. Smile about it. Make it happen. This is your life and your dream – no one else’s. And remember, you don’t have to see the whole staircase; you just have to take one step at a time.
So today. I am taking another step. I will visit another mall, and talk to another person and I will keep going until I find the best place for me. And I will smile and follow my gut. Yes, I may struggle with it, but I know I can make it happen. I have made many other seemingly impossible things happen in the past.
I am a woman, and we women are strong, and I have a wonderful support system in you, my friends.
