A few weeks ago I was scrolling Instagram and I noticed a post a friend made. She was talking about things she wished she had in her life. Like a house, a Disney annual pass, to run her own business, a baby, etc. As I finisher reading her list I remember feeling sad for her. I felt sad because I had everything on her list (except a baby of course) and I started thinking why I was blessed to have all the things that someone else wanted so badly in their life.
But then I thought about what I wanted in my life. Things that I don’t have, but want so badly. Things that she has that I wish could have happened for me. And that’s when it hit me. We all have things we hope to have that others already have. The crazy part to me though was how I had everything she wanted and yet she had things that I wanted.
We can’t look at things that others have, that we want and assume that they “have it all”. It got me thinking and I have 2 things I learned from this that I want to share. 1. I should be grateful every single day for the things that I’ve been blessed with that others may want and I shouldn’t feel bad about having those things. 2. I can figure out a plan on how to get the things I do want and work for it. Stop and think about what I truly want in my life and go for it. Don’t let anyone stop me. I want a Disney annual pass? You bet we saved up our money, didn’t buy any gifts for each other for a full year, worked extra hours and got those passes.
So think about what is it that you want in your life? It can be something big or small, but whatever you truly want. Sit down today and make a plan. How are you going to make your dreams come true? Because everyone can make things happen if you really want and that includes you! It may not come fast, it may be hard, it will probably take more work and require lots of sacrifice, but if it really truly is your DREAM then gosh darn it I want you to make it happen and I know you can! Go for it girl! You’ve got this! 👊🏻
