Let's face it, the economy has most of us spending our nights, eyes wide open. So many questions play out like a movie scene inside our heads. Even in our sleep. We wonder if we will still have a job when our eyes finally open and see the sun, although not shining as bright as it did once before. We wonder if we'll still be able to pay our bills as our employers send us emails and tell us that "yes, you still have a job" but guess what..."we are not going to pay you for a few days each month." It's an unfavorite reality that we must face. A moment that becomes a living thing at the very minute our bodies take a deep breath. Yes, things are tough.
So how do you survive this economy? The answer is neither complicated or complex. In fact, it's not based off rocket science or some textbook. Rather, it's simply and easy but only if we allow the very idea of "change" to flow through the cracks of our brains that hasn't been occupied by the thoughts of worrying. Here's the secret ingredient to the survival receipe of life... find a way to live out your dreams! Don't say "that's easier said than done." Rather, allow the concept to sink into that dream spot that has been hanging around over the years. Waiting as if in the distance for something to push it into the spotlight. Here is your spotlight! Don't go back and turn the light off but continue reading this article.
A few suggestions of dreams that might have been in the dark for you, until now:
Write a book...I did. It's called "Color Me Jazzmyne"
Find a new field that you've always wanted to get into and get into it.
Call a friend and ask them what have you always talked about doing but never did and then take that conversation and act upon it.
If none of the above get's you going, try this....
Ask yourself what will happen if you do nothing? How will the bills get paid if all you engage your mind on is worrying....the last time I checked the utility company doesn't take "worrying" as a payment.
Reality is something that can either move us or scare us into doing nothing. How will you face reality? Spend your nights....eyes wide open or focused on living out your dream!
