Have you ever felt hopeless about life? You have a dream or a goal and you don’t know where to start, how to start and so you don’t! Sometimes you let your emotions get the best of you and all of a sudden you are sad, mad, disappointed and worried all at the same time! Sad because you want to do something but you haven’t started. Then you get mad at yourself for feeling sad. Then you get disappointed because things aren’t going fast enough and then you get worried that you are doing it wrong, that people will either judge you or not support you and so you drop an F-bomb and say, “FORGET IT ALL!”
Whoa there! Before you go dropping F-Bombs and killing your dreams how about you take a deep breath and a handful of chill pills and a few seats. Obviously this dream or goal is important to you or you would not be filled with so much emotion. Am I right? There is something about this dream/goal that keeps you up at night that you desire sooo much to see it happen! You think about it all the time, people often say how you should be doing it and you are thinking to yourself, I AM TRYING, but this is hard, I need help, what should I do next, who should I talk to.. and so on and so on. Your mind is going one hundred miles a minute and I need you to pause! ONCE again, take a deep breath and a handful of chill pills and a few seats, one seat for each butt cheek.
When you get overwhelmed like this you are no good! You can’t think straight, function properly or accomplish any goals. Feeling overwhelmed like THIS will cause you to feel hopeless.
“But what do I do Cherise?”
I am so glad you asked! First, you need to remember who you are and who you are not! You are not a fearful, worrisome and hopeless girl! NO, not at all! You are fearfully and wonderfully MADE! You can do all things through Christ! You are confident and the last time I checked, confident girls don’t quit they keep on going!
Second, take the pressure off of yourself! If God has give you a desire He will make sure that it comes to pass, but you have to keep on working. Do not think for one second that because you are starting off small that what you are doing is not important. If you keep on going watch how big your dreams will grow!
Thirdly, remember it is a process! You are a work in progress and so are your dreams. Everything in life goes through a process. Take yourself for example, you were born a baby and then over time, through a process, you started to change, develop and grow. Just like you, your dreams need time.
In the meantime, keep on thinking about your dreams, planning, and practicing until they reach its full potential. Do not get all cray cray and bent out of shape during the process.
Keep on believing!
I believe in you!
