Make Your Dreams Come True

Mmm, things make me think, oh so often.  Maybe I should do some training to teach my brain how to rest for just a little while, at the moment it very rarely takes a rest.  I am a Mum in business with so many responsibilities.  I love being with God and doing things for him, I love spending the time with my husband, I love running around and having fun with my children, I love catching up with friends, I love being a business entrepreneur and I want to be able to do the best in all that I do.  I get things completely wrong at times, I forget what’s most important.  I think we all do that at times, and then I remember again and I grow from this series of mini experiences called life.  I have learned to say ‘no’ over time, this is a very powerful tool to learn to use.  I have also had to relearn it, the mind can forget when the circumstances change sometimes.  I have learned to become my own person and I try not to worry about what others around me think.  This can be so hard, I think it is good to worry to a certain degree as I really believe that this is what keeps our values lined up with what is good.

Becoming a business entrepreneur had been a dream of mine for a real long time, since I finished school I think.  It hardly felt like it was reachable back then though.  It just so happened that it was not going to stay only in my dreams forever, now it is my past, present and future – and I’m so excited about this!  I have ideas, oh I have so many of ideas!  I’m that sort of person, the creative type that wants to experience so much.  Sometimes I seem to lack the patience while I am on the journey, but I have learnt just recently that it is a really good thing to be on the journey, that once I reach the final destination then what more would there be – so thinking about it I now look forward, and always want to be on that journey called life.

Maybe you are searching for what you want to do, to be?  If you have had a dream for a long time but didn’t think that you could reach it, please do know that it is touchable, no matter how distant it might seems.  Even though I thought I would never touch mine for many many reasons, I have touched it and gone a long way beyond it – now it is your turn to have a go.  Make sure that you have a go as soon as you can, don’t delay, or you might regret it later.

My Not-So-Great Birthday Present

For my birthday, about a month ago, another car crashed into the back of our car while I waited to turn right into our local video store, my car was stationary at the time.  The main reason that this happened was because the red car which was directly behind me at the time ducked into the left hand lane at the very last minute making it absolutely impossible for the grey car (the one that crashed into me) to see me in good time.  I won’t go into the details of my last month – thankfully nobody was hurt, but I have to say it did cause a lot of inconvenience for me and my family.

This incident has made me think a little, or maybe a lot…

First up it has greatly increased my awareness of the distance between my vehicle and another vehicle.  Since the accident I often look behind me and worry about whether that car behind me is going to slow down in time and I am more cautious with my driving, with the distance between me and the car in front of me.

It has also made me think about  the impatience that most of us have in us these days, which shows through especially when we are driving.  We hurry up to make it through that light that is about to turn red, we follow too closely behind another person, we overtake when we really shouldn’t – and for what?  To gain a few seconds, or minutes maybe, so we can get to our destination slightly quicker.  When I think about it it seems so selfish to risk the lives of not only ourself, but of others by this dangerous driving.  To me, thinking about it, it doesn’t make any sense at all.  So the next time you drive have a think about how fast you are driving, have a think about whether you have left enough distance between you and the car in front of you, think about stopping at that orange light rather than speeding up to make it through.  Consider both your own life and those around you as valuable and not to be messed with.

Ze Good Deed #6 Part 2

Mmm, so I can’t actually pinpoint what good deed number six might have been, it might not have actually happen today (although some really good things happened) because I have had a really very busy day today and it seems like it has kind of been absorbed into the day.  Sometimes other things might get in the way of our plans.  It is good to be flexible and put an idea to the side for a few moment.  What isn’t good is if this seems to be happening every single day of our life!  I strongly believe that we should be working to make a difference in other peoples lives every single day.  Are you making a difference?

What happened yesterday?

What happened yesterday?  How about last week…, last month…, last year even?  I bet you have been served up a portion of both good and not so good experiences – you would be a fairly sheltered person to have only good experiences happen in your life.  Have you managed to get something out of these experiences?  Both good and bad experiences offer a new perspective that can be invaluable in shaping our lives, in moulding the person that we are to become.
