At the beginning of the year I purchased a calendar called "Dream Big, Stay Positive, and Believe in Yourself". I also bought one for my supervisor! It looked like a great way to keep dreaming and positivity on the forefront in our work place. A few months into the year we moved from a floor full of cubicles and walls to an open floor plan with a lot less space. I like it a lot but was crushed that I had more than a year left to enjoy my calendar and no place to hang it. It now sits on the little shelf behind me and I make the extra effort to get it out and read it.
* I love this calendar *
I realized yesterday I hadn't looked at it this month. The words I read blew me away. It was like God knew what I needed to hear at this point in my journey (imagine God knowing that, right)? I love Him!
I wanted to share this with you in hopes it speaks to you the way it did me. I pray it gives you hope and helps you to keep going and never give up. If you'd like to grab one of these calendars they're still available online at half the cost!
"There comes a time in your life when you realize that if you stand still, you will remain at this point forever. You realize that it you fall and stay down, life will pass you by.
Life's circumstance are not always what you might wish them to be. The pattern of life does not necessarily go as you plan. Beyond any understanding, you may at times be led in different directions that you never imagined, dreamed, or designed. Yet if you had never put any effort into choosing a path or tried to carry out your dream, then perhaps you would have no direction at all.
Rather than wondering about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you now. Shake off the "whys" and "what ifs," and rid yourself of confusion. Whatever was - is in the past. Whatever is - is what's important. The past is a brief reflection. The future is yet to be realized. Today is here.
Walk your path one step at a time - with courage, faith, and determination. Keep you head up and cast your dreams to the stars. Soon your steps will become firm and your footing will be solid again. A path that you never imagined will become the most comfortable direction you could have ever hoped to follow.
Keep your belief in yourself (and God) and walk into your new journey. You will find it magnificent, spectacular, and beyond your wildest imaginings."
