It was towards the end of September, close to eight months ago, that a seed was planted. My husband and I received a phone call that got us thinking.
The possibility of this idea even happening ignited something in both of us, of that we knew. Instead of dismissing the possibility and closing down the excitement within, we inflamed it a little more, both feeding off each other. “What if; Is this what we want, is it even possible”? Of course we both beamed. The truth was we didn’t know if it was possible however we chose to believe it was and explore it further.
Now, here I am, writing about this extraordinary event. Here we are, living in our dream home on the beach, feeling unspeakable grateful that we followed the initial excitement and not dismiss it. The cost of not following this feeling would have been spending the rest of our lives either wondering ‘what if, or ‘wishing we had’.
What has been so revealing for me, yet again, is how ‘everything’ flows when you are on the right path. It does not mean that the path is easy, or without obstacles, as you soon discover they are the perfect obstacles for you at the perfect time. You see part of your path is not just about gathering and accumulating, it is about becoming. The internal change within you.
Forget about the ‘how’. Never give up truly wanting something simply because you are unsure on how you are going to make it happen. When your desire is strong enough, it will remain in your thoughts, you will continue to focus on it, day dream about it and somehow, something will appear which will be the first step towards making it happen.
It may not eventuate during your first attempt, so try again. Find another avenue, keep focusing on what it is that you want and you will find the way. Remember, do not be afraid to fail, be afraid if you do not try.
So now, is there something you have given up on and now feel inspired to try again?
