I hope this beautiful Saturday finds you well and excited for a new day!
I want to touch base today on reality and dreams. I’ve struggled with it myself, and would love to hear how you’ve dealt with similar situations.
Have you ever had a dream that touched your reality for just a very short time in your life? But it was so profound that it has become an obsession. You continue chasing that feeling you had by that touch. Maybe it was love or lust or happiness or some other emotion that really hit home with you. However, the moment was fleeting, and now you have to face the reality that the moment is passed. How do you do that? How do you face that reality?
Well, most of us actually don’t face it. We may seem like we do, but in reality, we just busy ourselves with more things. It may be work, texting, or calling, anyone and everyone, just to keep our mind off the fact that we need to move on. We don’t physically want to move on, we want to feel those feelings again so we put off the fact that we aren’t going to feel that way again. Not that we’ll never feel good again, just not that particular feeling.
So today, I challenge you, and myself, just for today, not promising tomorrow, let yourself feel. Let yourself grieve, be sad, be upset, whatever emotion it is, let yourself feel it. Understand that you deserve to feel it, it happened to you, it’s ok to feel the things you’re feeling, it doesn’t make you a failure. I’m not saying to “waller in misery.” But unless you let yourself go through it, painful as it may be, you’re never going to get over it, and you’re never going to face reality, you’re going to continue to live a dream life, one that’s made up in your head, and that’s not good for your mind, soul, or body.
Then tonight, when you close your eyes, tell yourself your’e okay, that you made it through the day and tomorrow will be a new day that you’ll also make it through. One day at a time, step by step, letting yourself feel whatever it is, just be present in your own life, but make sure it’s real….
See ya’ll on Monday!!
Cause I’m not there yet, but perhaps, Soon Enuff….
