As we grow older, the dreams that once burned brightly inside of us can sometimes begin to feel like they're slipping away. We get caught up in the responsibilities of adulting – work, bills, family, social obligations – and before we know it, we've lost sight of the things that used to bring us the most joy and fulfillment. But why does this happen? Why do we let life and time take away our drive, purpose, and passion?
One of the biggest challenges of adulthood is time management. After we've worked and handled our daily responsibilities, it can be difficult to find the time and energy to pursue our passions and work towards our dreams. But the truth is, we owe it to ourselves to make time for the things that matter most to us.
If you're feeling like your dreams are slipping away, it's time to take action. One small adjustment you can make in your life is carving out just one day per week for 1-2 hours that is dedicated towards your creativity and your plan towards your dream. Maybe it's painting, writing, playing an instrument, or brainstorming business ideas. Whatever it is, make it a non-negotiable part of your schedule. Treat it like an important meeting or appointment that cannot be missed.
Remember, your dreams aren't dead. They might just need a little bit of extra attention and effort to reignite the flame. It's never too late to pursue what sets your soul on fire.
As you work towards your goals, keep this in mind: "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11
Whatever your beliefs may be, this scripture serves as a powerful reminder that you are meant to thrive and succeed. Trust in yourself and in God to guide you towards the path that is meant for you.
So go ahead, take that first step towards reigniting your passion and pursuing your dreams. You won't regret it.
