This morning and I came across that quote and it made so much sense to me. Sometimes the distance between where we are and our dreams are filled with obstacles and burdens from our past.
I remember before I got married I had been through relationships that failed most times because of my actions and inactions. For a long time I let my experiences define me.
At a point I thought I couldn’t love anyone because I couldn’t develop that deep love for anyone again because I have loved before and I was burnt. Even when eligible bachelors approached me for a relationship I never take them serious and I find ways to push them away. Deep down I had this dream to marry someone that I can deeply love and he will love me back as much as I do but my past was a barrier to achieving this dream.
You see life is not a bed of roses. You are not entitled to anything except what you work for and demand for. Good things happen to good people and bad things also happen to good people. We cannot control some things that happen to us but we can actually control how we react to them. There is no good enough reason to give up.
When my husband asked me out I put up my defences again and told him I am not ready for a relationship. He continued talking to me. At a point I really had to ask myself what was my problem. I realised that I was afraid of being hurt. I was still holding on to the pains of my past relationship.
If ever wanted to get married at least I would have to start with a relationship. So I had to give it a try. I had to let go of my past to be able to move forward to my dream.
I prayed! I stayed true to me!
I studied to find out what makes relationships work!
There where times the negative feelings crop up but its my choice to feed on it or to kill it.
Today I am living my dreams with the best husbands on earth who loves me like no other.
All these wouldn’t have been possible if I didn’t go for it. Some times all you need is to give your dream a chance and it will work out just fine.
There is no better time than now to fight for your dreams. Let me know your thoughts in the comment box.
