Do you ever feel like you are not exactly sure where you are going?
Do you feel like you are on a decent track, but things could be a lot better if you could figure out what you want?
That has been the story of my life lately and it is not a bad place to be.
There have been many times when all I wanted was a warm place to lay my head at night and enough resources to pay the bills and put food on the table. And a lifeline to get me from place to place. Sometimes there is fulfillment in that struggle. Just barely making it and somehow MAKING IT.
I am not a stranger to the grind, but I do not want to spin my wheels. I want to live a colorful, purposeful life and to accomplish this I need to level up!
‘Cause I’m unstoppable, I get all the way in it
That’s the way I was made and I’m up on my business
‘Cause I’m unstoppable, ain’t no hoping and wishing
Say a prayer, catch your wave, then I go out and get it
‘Cause I can be what I want, try it if I want
I’m powered by the King and He won’t let me fall
‘Cause I’m unstoppable, nah, nah, nah, He won’t let me fall
No, no, no, no, no, ’cause I’m unstoppable
I dream about it, I go get it, that’s how I do it
Not in the stars, I’m not lucky I just pray through it
Fall on my face and I make mistakes but I
Don’t let it break me ’cause I’m still on my way
I do believe I’m something special
Can’t take that from me
So you can say what you want and I go harder, stronger
Be who I’m supposed to be
In the midst of struggling and barely making it I became afraid of dreaming. I worried that what if I tried my hardest and still failed? That’s the recovering perfectionist in me speaking. I would like to rephrase this broken record to say:
“Let’s dream bigger and pick goals to help us catch those dreams. And even if some dreams get away, there will be valuable lessons learned along the way.”
I look back on goals and dreams I had long ago that seemed so impossible that I never started. Just imagine how much closer I would have been. That’s okay today is a good day to begin!
