Day 160

I just finished watching a movie called "Wish I was here". A simple movie, which I felt had a strong message. Which was so lovely. (I even watched it start to finish with no interruptions, which is different for me!)

It was about a man with a wife and children who reaches a point in life where things become difficult. He wants to remain on a path to achieve his dream but life is making that nearly impossible. What was so lovely about the movie though, is he didn't change his mind or his dream, he adapted it. Life became difficult for awhile, so he focussed on his family for awhile, then things started to fall into place. 

He may not of "achieved" the exact dream that he wanted, but he achieved something better - fulfilment in other areas of his life and something close to what he wanted. I found it so powerful. At a time in my life where I am figuring out which road I want to travel - re-evaluating so to speak. 

Life is meant to be challenging, and yes you can achieve anything you want if you want it badly enough. Really what that means is that you can achieve anything if you work hard enough and are dedicated despite any hurdles that come your way. If the hurdles stop you, then maybe your dream wasn't as strong as you thought - and you are destined for something different. 

We are all destined to be great. Greatness is defined for those who are happy with who they are and what they are doing in their life. This does not mean you have to be a superstar, a top musician, a leading scientist or a captain in the fire brigade. Everything one person does is having an impact on the world. What we need to ask ourselves is if the impact we are leaving is a positive one, and one that sits well with our morals and beliefs??

Dreams can change. But anything is achievable. What do you want out of life? Are you happy and content with where you are? 

…Until Tomorrow xox
