Do you want a Transforming Year for 2010?

Posted by PatriciaD on January 12, 2010

 

What are your dreams?  What are your new years resolutions?  Do you make new years resolutions any more or have you given up?  I mean why bother writing them down each year if you know you won’t be doing anything towards them anyway, right?!  Have you become disillusioned?  Think about this, dreams give birth to change. 

What are your hopes as you reflect on the past year?  With pen in hand take a few quiet minutes to reflect on the past and contemplate the year that is to come.  But this year, instead of making another set of resolutions that you will have forgotten by next week think about your dreams and hopes.

 I read a story not too long ago about a mother who told her teenage daughter to quit dreaming that she wasn’t going to be doing any of that stuff anyway, you know like writing a book, traveling the world, having that dream job.  Well, of course, she wasn’t if she didn’t first dream it.  Can you imagine a mother telling her child not to dream beautiful dreams and not to become all she could be?! 

 And it wasn’t just a story.  I had a foster child whose mother told him, in my hearing, that he was just dumb and lazy so what did it matter how he did in school!!  When he came to me he was in special education classes, couldn’t tie his own shoes (and he was 12 years old), couldn’t read for comprehension and on and on.  After living with me for barely 2 weeks he could tie his shoes, after two months he was reading much better (we read every night, no TV), and after two years wasn’t in special ed for any subject, helped other kids with their math (never dreamed he’d do that) and knew God.  Those were my dreams for him but he found out that he could have dreams of his own.  I hope he has learned to dream for himself.

 Did you write down your dreams this year? 

Don’t give up on your dreams.  Don’t give in to the discouragement of not dreaming or listening to the negativism of those who would tell you not to dream, even your own negative thoughts.  Think positive, dream big!!  So what if you don’t get the big thing you dreamed…if you get the next thing to it at least you’ve gotten more than if you never dreamed at all.  You’re never too old…dream!

  1. These incorporate a chin-up bar, resistance bands, a yoga mat,
    and a item identified as the ‘Peak Recovery Formula’ for regaining the energy lost for the duration of the workout.
    There are a bazillion workout programs out there.
    There are extremely couple of added products required for this fitness routine,
    and what is necessary is effortless to choose up, set up, and pack away when you aren’t employing them. These extra workouts are powerful in delivering final results even on the 1st week of activity. Targeting certain physique varieties and weight prone people, the system is created about the life style of a time-stressed person.
