Yet it is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top. – Virginia Woolf

Two years ago I was living my dream, helping people by just being myself and sharing my experiences. I was the happiest I had ever been. I felt alive and I knew that every step on my path was for a purpose. To help others become accessible to their inner power, and see their own greatness. To see a lightbulb go on, as an attitude or perception was challenged gave me pure glee.
Money was a concern, so I ended the business and thought the dream was over. I still had the passion in me, but I let it slide to the backburner. I half convinced myself that the purpose was done, that I had nothing left to share with others.
While on holidays recently and wrestling with timing, people asked me about my workshops, and my public speaking again. Sparks flew as I reminisced about that time of my life. Hey maybe the dream doesn’t have to die. I can find other avenues to make it happen.
For starters I am doing speeches at Toastmasters to brush up on my skills again. It’s not too late, I can still make this happen. It will take a different form, but I will still make a difference through teaching.
I am researching different options and feeling quite lost at the moment. I know that this is temporary as I find my way. I keep getting “you have to do it!” messages from my gut, and from people in my life. It’s okay if I feel a bit scattered while I try to get the pieces together. Of course I want it all to slide together effortlessly. Ha! Anything worth pursuing will make me chase after it a bit. :)
I remember listening to a speaker talk about how he started a book 5 years ago, and still has yet to finish it. His perspective was he had to take the time he did, in order to learn more about the topic, and share from a real, authentic place. There are no mistakes in timing, he said.
There are no mistakes in timing. Huh. Just what I needed to remember! Imagine that!
How can you keep your dream alive by remembering that everything happens in its own time? Letting go of timing, and holding on to trust can help you let go of the limits you have set on your heart’s dreams!
