Many of us have fields of wishes in our head and heart.
Some dreams and wishes are huge, massive even.
What I came to realize, wishes and dreams are great and necessary. But they can be the cause of much heartache and frustration.
This feeling was not just because of my lack of results in manifesting my dreams.
The hard truth, I had to own that this lack of results was caused by me. How? Well, by my own actions,
Or more specifically by my lack of action.
I've been in this situation many times and anticipate to be there many more times in my life IF I don't stop procrastinating.
The lack of action has put many dampers on my plans in my past years and even in a few ways in my current life.
I have to own my responsibility.
I need to know what steps are needed, deep down I know and most importantly I need to take the steps. Even a small step is progress.
Getting motivation to move forward is at times the MOST challenging part of the journey.
But I know first hand what the lack of action can cost.
More then the cost of disappointment of not having this "______" (what ever that "_____" is), there is a cost internally, within my soul. The cost of not taking action is often far greater then any possession I have to give up to manifest my wishes.
The heart wants many things. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting, hoping and wishing for better.
But be careful that this dosent cost more then what it's worth.
If you need to sacrifice a part of yourself, will it be sustainable? Probably not.
If you need to step over someone ( close to you or not) how will that affect you?
How will you feel once you've attained your wish?
Will there be a cost of guilt?
What if this new realized dream or wish brings you shame every time you see it? Was the cost of guilt and or shame worth it?
Pushing things away or even worse, pushing people away may be a cost that will cause you to fall into a never ending state of need and want.
The continuous want for new "____", to replace the old.
You may find yourself in an endless battle for the new, as everything becomes old.
Listen to your head, heart and gut.
When all 3 line up in harmony,
you will know.
