When the world feels like its crumbling around you, look for things that make your life better.
Each day we consider what others think about is, we’re stepping in a minefield.
The minefield is littered with crushed dreams, faded photographs and the loss of peace of mind.
The minefield is bigger than we believe it to be.
It looks like only a few yards, but it goes on for years. Those years are lost to the judgment of self, loss of productivity and an absence of who we are.
Who we are is the most important of these.
It is what we believe ourselves to be that defines us.
It carries us through a forest of thorns, a no man’s land of pain and sometimes that no man’s land is littered with our lost dreams.
We only fail in our dreams if we stop following and the lost dreams in no man’s land will never have their second coming. They will never have that resurrection we desire for them.
We have to move past those lost dreams at some point.
When we discover that the minefield is an illusion and the words that others say don’t matter, we move into a new realm of who we are.
This realm is ripe with purpose.
It answers the questions of we thought we were and gives us guidance.
