Plenty of people chase dreams with only few achieving them. I have achieved a dream or two and I am now going after my biggest dream yet. I have started that journey and while the start is a big achievement, the trials (and the blessings) are in the journey. Anyone who has achieved a dream knows the road to success is lonely, cold, discouraging and bumpy. The path is filled with storms, wrong turns and detours.
I have hit one of those stretches in my journey where the road is stormy and has plenty of detours. I thank God for my stormy road toolkit. At 47, roads like these are familiar. I not only persevere during these times, I get more focused. I often pick up more tools from my toolkit. I am so thankful for my toolkit even on a cold Monday.
As you can see, you are not alone. The emotional and spiritual warfare tha comes about when you are facing an unknown journey is universal. Share your stormy days and perhaps you will get a tool or two to help you. You need tools to graduate from dream chaser to dream catcher! For me it is a pink toolbox filled with prayer, meditation, rain boots, an umbrella, some elbow grease, a map and a compass.
The road to success is quite treacherous but certainly achievable with a toolkit. Start building your toolkit today and don’t forget to add gratitude to it because gratitude improves your attitude and increases your blessings. GM foot soldiers.
