“If God gives you the inspiration, there can be no question of failure.”
If we’ve been blessed to live till now, then our ability to dream dreams for our life is far from over.
Would you like to join the millions of us who’ve decided we’re not going to sit around just waiting for our arteries to harden? Instead, we’re out there taking a chance on making our dreams come true!
Once we’ve decided what we want—whatever that happens to be–it’s important to take one small step in the right direction because it helps create the needed shift in our outlook and expectation.
Even one tiny step toward our goal can help us build momentum.
As an example…one day a few years ago, I decided that I wanted a new car and recall how I began dropping in at Lincoln showrooms “just to look.” Oh no, I wasn’t going to fork out any money just yet!
But then again, I never expected to see the car of my dreams either–one which had every single feature, including the exact color which I loved!
When I unexpectedly saw this car, I felt a shift and shiver ripple through me at the cellular level.
I never dreamed where that first step would lead, but was so thrilled with my instant discovery that I happily bought the car and had a wonderful romance—more like a love affair–with it for years.
I may be different from others in that I happen to regard a car as a very personal thing, pretty much like my wristwatch. After all, I use and rely on it practically every single day.
And I recall how, while driving it, I’d sing at the top of my lungs while sailing at top speeds across the highways and byways of America.
Sometimes when we take the first step, we watch all the right people “magically appear” from out of nowhere with the exact information which we need to guide us to the next level. Occasionally, that next level leads us to a new job, a new house, or even a new love mate.
We can warehouse seeds in a seed bank and store them for years. But just like ideas, we have to plant them if we ever want them to grow.
They need water, light, and nourishment. Plant a seed and we give it life. Give it life and we give it force, plus we may discover that it has infinite potential.
“Anybody can count the seeds in an apple but only God can count the apples in a seed.”
Rev. Robert Schuller.
Each week, I receive stories from people of all ages who have recently discovered love and romance.
It thrills me to read “Dear Jan, I have fallen in love again!”
When I ask how they met, I often learn that they took one small step in the right direction—anything from signing up on “Plenty of Fish” to attending a senior dance, joining a one-day bus excursion, enrolling in a class, volunteering their time at a charity fund-raiser, etc.
So I urge you to never never never give up dreaming that you too will find love, if that happens to be among your personal dreams for your life.
And please do feel free to share your efforts (and results) with us so that we may also benefit from your experiences and kind advice.
“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”
