Building something new takes time. Changing your life takes time. And both take a lot of work. But the work and the changes can be so much fun when you approach them with an open mind and heart. Experiencing each day for what it is, finding the the positive moments and celebrating them and looking forward to the next step makes the journey exciting.
Persevering and having patience can sometimes be hard. We are a world filled with people who want it now. But even the "overnight success stories" have a back story. First there are the dreams and the visions of what we want. Then the first, second, third, and hundredth step to get where we want to go. There are the side journeys that teach us so much and sometimes the roads that lead us to nowhere that at the time are so frustrating but become such an important part of the journey.
I have found that when we have a vision, keep that vision in front of us, and stay positive and patient one day we will find that we are exactly where we want to be. The book may be finished, the show completed, the new company opened or the day will unfold just as we hoped it would. To have this happen takes time. It takes perseverance. And it definitely takes being open and positive to whatever the universe presents.
What is it that you are working on right now? Is it a creative practice? Is it a dream? Are you building a new life? Are you beginning something new or just completing something that you have always wanted to do? Remember that no matter where you are in the process to stop and take time to celebrate the smallest of moments. It is important to be patient. It is important to persevere. It is very important to stay positive. And it is very important to celebrate all that you have already accomplished so that you can continue to move forward with excitement and joy.
When you share your dreams and talents with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
Create the life you want to live!
