“Don’t judge your day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.” Robert Louis Stevenson
I have been thinking about the relationship between adversity, life and living my dreams. Adversity no longer has to define my life or my choosing to live my dreams each day. What I have written below is something that I need to remind myself of each day. I have the power to…
“Dreams do not vanish, so long as people do not abandon them.” Phantom F. Harlock
We may not have chosen to be brought into this world.
“No one knows enough to be a pessimist.” Wayne W. Dyer
We may be a traumatic or an acquired brain injury survivor. We may be experiencing some other type of adversity. We may not like the way life looks today.
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt
We may think that life is not fair. We may believe that our life no longer matters. We may want to give up on ourselves. We may want to blame our circumstances. We may feel stuck in the ashes of our disappointment. We may find ourselves arguing with God. We may be angry at the world.
“If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams and endeavor to live the life you have imagined…You will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau
We may be convinced that our disability has derailed the life we had hoped to live. We may believe that life has passed us by. We may believe that we are limited by our limitations. We may believe that we have lost our credibility. We may believe that no one will want what we have to give.
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Encouragement as I Need to Encourage Myself
Let me inspire you to dream again. You will see your dreams rise from the ashes of your dismay. You will see your life take on new meaning. What once baffled you will be made clear. Your life will reveal a kaleidoscope of hope. You will fulfill your purpose and your destiny will become apparent.
“To reach a port we must sail- sail, not tie at anchor- sail, not drift.” Franklin Roosevelt
Our willingness to learn from the circumstance that life provides prepare you and I to take advantage of the lessons learned. Those lessons in turn empower our ability to benefit from the opportunities that become available to us. Those opportunities invariably point us in the direction of our destinies.
“Regardless of your lot in life, you can build something beautiful on it.” Zig Ziglar
