A Dreamer 

Proverbs 29:18King James Version (KJV)

18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he

I remember being a kid dreaming of he day when I’d be a grown up so I could do all the things I wanted to so without my mom telling me no. I breathed in the air of limitless potential and possibilities and exhaled ambition, drive and success. Now I’m a 30 year old, university graduate, wife and mother of one still dreaming of the day I am free from life’s “no’s”. I know that a dream gives hope when reality seems to delight in beating me down with responsibilities. Most of which I took on because it was the “right” thing to do. Now I don’t know.

I guess I’m at that place where the dream is very much alive. I know deep down that’s where I’m going. The dream drives me. It frustrates me but fuels me. It challenges me but when I deviate it leaves me feeling empty and depressed. I know where I should go buy when I don’t, I’m not myself.

So what’s a girl to do?

Only thing I can do is to keep going towards the dream. That’s my destination. Every fiber of my being knows it, why fight it? I’m due to arrive at some point so I might do the right thing and in this case, it’s to go towards the dream.

    Very well expressed, but unfortunately I don’t we can ever be « free « but God is able to keep us, sometimes we can cry sometimes we’re angry, but at the end of the day all we can do is trust God and know He’s got our back, God bless keep writing, love you
