I'm sure most older people will agree when I say that people don't usually tell you how things really work in life. That is because it would sound too strange. You see, truth really is stranger than fiction. When it comes to describing life's intricate processes, you make a lot more sense when you make things up!
For instance, you should never give up on your dreams. To tell you how I have found this to be true, I have to tell you a strange story from my life. I had been eating too much, - although raw, not the right raw, and too much of not the right raw, and too much noshing all the time. Well, I finally prayed about it - really asked for help, from my heart. I couldn't at that time possibly imagine how I would break what had become such a bad habit.
Meanwhile I had started following my heart by singing. I was spending a couple of hours a day on my music. One night I told myself I had no business spending this much time doing music as I was in the middle of building a village! After moping about this for a little while, I suddenly stood up for myself to myself and told myself that I could too have a couple of hours a day to do my music as long as I kept taking care of business, which I would have the energy for if I would eat better.
And there was my motivation! I had somehow developed a passion for my music, and it would be easy to give up overeating if it meant I would have more time to spend on my music! Suddenly I could easily give up this forbidden fruit for another and tastier forbidden fruit!
This motivation wouldn't have worked a couple of weeks before, as my music studio wasn't set up and I didn't know my software. These things finally coming in to place paved the way for the motivation, for the good things to come together!
Who knows what motivates you! You may not even know yet, as I didn't. You may have to grow in to it! You may be motivated by disease, even when another person would give up in the face of disease. You may watch a movie or meet a person and learn something new that motivates you to change.
Motivation is key! And prayer helps! And if you trust the processes of life, you will see that things will unfold magically, weaving your dreams together in ways you couldn't invent on your own!
