Hi , my name is Diane and when I grow up I want to be…..
As a child we all had ideas of what we wanted to be when we grew up. Sometimes along the way though, life’s dreams are interrupted by unexpected realities. That life you pictured yourself living is far from the one you wake up to today. The crazy thing is that many times you don’t know how you got to where you are now. Once you became an adult, life has been a gradual process of survival. Over the years, life experiences have had a way of changing your desires, your ambitions, and even YOU.
This process is called maturity and its a natural part of life. The “You ” you are now is a culmination of your successes and mistakes, your relationships, and your own self-image. How you feel about yourself is the most important aspect of who you are. You shouldn’t beat yourself up for not achieving your dream. If that dream is no longer possible, it’s time to grieve that dream. Recognize your disappointment, cry if you need, and then give yourself time to say good-bye. The most important thing is to never stop dreaming. You are here in this place for a reason. God has a purpose for your life.
Take all those life experiences, even the bad, and build a new dream. Childhood dreams are built on fantasy but adult dreams are built on passion. A passion to do something meaningful, to make a difference, but most of all to fulfill God’s purpose for your life. True fulfillment comes from being who you were created to be.
Grieve a lost dream, find your passion and live a life of fulfillment and you will discover the “YOU” you were meant to be
