Are you a planner, dreamer, or both? What happens when you’ve worked toward a dream for a long time, yet it hasn’t quite come to fruition? Sometimes, we have to reconsider everything. It was a good dream at the time and the plan may have been perfect. But is the destination still what we want?
I may have been overcome by intervening events, causing me to question where I’m going. Do I just keep going, determined to reach my destination, assuming that I still want the vision that fit years ago? Have you ever questioned your ambitions? Well, all of them that remain outstanding, that is?
Lately, I’ve been feeling overcome by events and I’ve started to wonder if there is not only a better plan, but a better destination. I need to reevaluate the dreams of my youth, the plans of my older years, and where I am right now. The longer I walk this road, the more vested I feel. I’m almost afraid to consider that the time was wasted. Yet, what if the desires of my younger years aren’t really what I want any more? How do I release one dream so that I may embrace another? What if I’m just experiencing a moment of fatigue, and with a little more effort, I can achieve the first dream and then start the next? How do I know if I am truly ready to change?
I think that it is important to question everything, including myself. And this is the path I’m on today. What about you? Have you been there, done that? Do you have any words of wisdom?
