Lately, I’ve been feeling like my dreams are taking too long to come about. If you’ve read my past blog posts, you’ll know a little bit about my career goals. I want to start a digital magazine, continue with my blog, develop a youtube channel, and eventually travel the world speaking to women about unleashing their inner moxie. And honestly, I feel like all those things are definitely in my reach, but at the same time it’s all so far away.
And the thing is I’ve planned all this out. I wanted to have a bigger audience on my blog by now. In fact, I wanted to be planning my digital magazine right now instead of trying to get the traffic on my blog I had planned to already have by now. So, for the last couple of days, I’ve been feeling like I’m behind. I feel like I’ve failed myself because I promised myself I was going to be at a certain place by this time and I’m just not there.
“Every talent you have is not wasted. It is there because of a reason and God will open that door when the right time comes along to use it.” Shannon L. Alder
I know nothing about Shannon Alder, but these words spoke to me.
I believe that every vision and idea I have will come to pass in the perfect time. And until then, I’ll enjoy the moments I have now. I’ll keep pressing toward my goal and making my days great on purpose.
The truth is, I don’t have to wait for my dreams to come true to be happy, fulfilled, or proud of myself. And neither do you. We can be our happiest self with what we have right now and be proud of our accomplishments thus far. I mean, I’ve grown so much over the last couple of months that I can only imagine where God is going to take me in another few months. I’m more authentic about who I am and what I go through, I wrote my first piece for the Temple News and it got a lot of positive feedback, I talk on the radio without making a complete fool of myself, I step out of my comfort zone daily and explore the city around me, I went outside and took my own pictures for my blog (where people could see me lol), I have a better handle on my depression and anxiety, etc. And I’m proud of myself. I’m happy with myself. I’m so excited about where God is taking me, but I’m also going to enjoy the ride and make the best out of each moment.
Let me know in the comment section your recent accomplishments that have you feeling very proud of yourself!
