Giving Up Sometimes Means Making Room For Better, Bigger Things

Do you agree when I say, everyone has had a dream at one point in life?

Lately, I’ve been thinking about dreams. The ones so closely bound to your heart, you never thought you could breathe without them. And then of course, sometimes dreams seem to fall apart, or we burnout in the process before they happen. And just maybe, we give up. So my next thought is this, when they fall apart, how do you deal with the burden of letting go?

Letting go is something I think we all struggle with. It’s a huge weakness of mine. Whether it’s about my writing goals, the outcome of some of my manuscripts, to more personal dreams of having a family and being a mom, a newly single mom at that. Since my blog is about writing and dreaming, I thought I should probably take a moment and share a few coping mechanisms no matter where you are on your path to making your life exactly as you wish it to be.

  1. Embrace what you love about you
  2. Seek Positive and supporting friendships
  3. Create new.

So if right now in your life, if you’re struggling to reach those dreams, know that others are out there struggling right along with you. And here’s what I am working really hard to achieve right now: Just because a dream you swore had to happen, doesn’t mean that it won’t. Maybe it’s actually transforming into something new, something more beautiful and different than you have ever imagined. And as we learn to let go, we can realize how we’re making room for more of what we love and leaving less room for what we don’t.

Happy Valentine’s Day, all. May it be beautiful, and bright and never forget, so are you 🙂

P.S. I promise, next week will be all sorts of lighter posts.
