This is a picture that I took out of the window on my iPad when I was flying here for the first time. I woke up on the concrete floor of my empty house, and sick as a dog. I threw whatever i could fit in my suitcase, dressed Lydia and Michael and we flew home for the first time from Texas to Puerto Rico to catch up with the rest of our family.
I was worried about everything from missing my flight, and seriously considering I may die in route.
(I have a fear of flying, that is an entirely different post.)
We didn't have a place to live, I didn't research schools (we have 5 kids , we are not employed by someone else and we had never been here before. It was and continues to be an act of faith.)
3 hours into the flight, I looked out the window, this is what I saw and the fear started to melt away.
I have been reading a book, not for the first time, it's probably my third or fourth pass at it and this concept really grabbed me this time around.
Blessed are those who dream dreams, and are willing to pay the price to make them come true.
I am thinking about what I want to create in a different way, I am thinking about the end result, the "dream" part and I am thinking through the "price" and deciding if I am willing to "pay the price" or "do the work" to create the dream.
I'm not only thinking am I willing to do it, I am asking myself, am I willing to pay the price and enjoy paying it?
So......just a little reflection for you. So many people I speak to say, oh I want to do this or that. I want, I want, I want......
I am adding the other half to the equation in my daily practice.
I am asking myself what are you willing to do to get there??
My mom use to tell me "Brooke it's all about checks and balances" I am not sure that she was talking about this but it totally applies!
When you are making plans, are you considering what it will take to get there? Are you open and willing to engage in the professional and personal growth that is required to upgrade your experience? Have you set your goals and are you committed?
Thank you, thank you, thank you for meeting me in this space, l want to hear and learn from you. Leave a comment, ask a question and let's get connected.
