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.
