Live, Love, Laugh
It is important for us to live at least some of our dreams. Our life provides us with a freedom that few of us realize until we no longer have it. Looking back it is easy to see how many of our dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most of us have not honored many of our dreams due to the choices we have made, or avoided.
Most of us work too hard. We regret spending so much of our lives on the treadmill of a work existence. By focusing more on activities that are less urgent but move us toward our dreams, we will achieve better results with less effort and more fun.
We often suppress our feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, we settle for a mediocre existence and never get to know our authentic selves. This may result in illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment we carry. We cannot control the reactions of others. However, although people may initially react when we change the way we are by speaking honestly, in the end it raises the relationship to a whole new and healthier level. Either that or it releases the unhealthy relationship from our life. Either way, we win.
In the end, what others think of us will be a long way from our mind. Our happiness is our choice. Fear of change may cause us to pretend to others and to our self. When deep within, we long to live, love and laugh once again.
