Journal Entry – 4/4/17
As I begin writing this, the clock nears ever closer to 3AM. I hoped for an early night…
I’ve been terribly ill the last four days and haven’t been sleeping consistently. I’m back to work tomorrow, err, today, though I cannot slow my mind. So many great ideas! If only they could come a little earlier!
But isn’t it funny when you start to see the pieces of your life falling together. All of those trials faced, the lessons from which and necessary applications becoming clear. What’s even funnier is when the many dreams that seemed to have faded begin to resurface and grow to become even more powerful than they ever were before.
Because life does not take us away from our dreams without good reason. Sometimes it is because there is something even better waiting for us. But on other occasions, as it is in my case now, it takes us away from these dreams temporarily in order for us to gain the perspective we need to understand how things fit into the much larger picture.
We must hold onto those dreams; those dreams that remain though they might have turned from a clang to a whisper. We must remain tuned in to the broadcast of our heart. And we must listen carefully to what it is telling us and to where it is directing us. It might feel like life is pulling us away but in actual fact it is pushing us closer.
Hold on, dreamer.
