I have so many dreams. I have so many goals and big ideas I want to accomplish. I am of course currently working on some of them, but I have so many more and sometimes I get this thought that I have to do it all now. Do you ever get that way? I am 24 and I feel like I should have accomplished more or be working on more of my goals, but yesterday something clicked.
I am young.
I have my whole life in front of me and I have so much time to accomplish all of my goals. Sometimes my dreams and plans feel all over the place, like they don’t mesh and I should just forget about some of them. But what I thought about yesterday is why give up on a dream just because you think it might not fit with other dreams. For instance I dream of working a job that is flexible, possibly from home, and lets me be creative. Well right now I am in school for a job that I certainly cannot do from home, the hours could be somewhat flexible I suppose, and it does let me be creative to a certain extent, and feel like since I am putting all this money into school that occupational therapy is the only thing I am allowed to do for the rest of my life…and its not. This is just one path, one stepping stone. I have my whole life to make my other dreams happen. I do not need to do it all now. Timing is key. Patience is key. I decided to stop pushing away the dreams I have because I don’t think they fit with the other dreams I have. I have decided to keep them in my mind and write them down, because I know one day I can make them happen.
