I had this awful habit of constantly being anticipating the future. I was living in a constantly stressed life, so unsure of what the future could hold. My baby daughter’s well-being, what would happen to her if, for some reason, I was no longer there for her. It was cruel knowing that she would have no one else to take care of her, to love her and protect her. It was exhausting.
The years went by, I was always re-adjusting to her school schedules, finding jobs that would fit in our schedules, so that she would never stay alone.
As I explained in my post of How to Quit Smoking for Good, I went through a bit of a scary time due to a clot that was found on my left foot. My daughter was 18 years old, and she took care of me with the sweetest and loving attention that I’ve never had in my life before!
This health event made me change the way I lived and perceived life.
The sentence “we’ll cross that bridge when we get there” started to be my way of living.
It’s now so clear to me the time and energy that I wasted all those years, the tears I cried, that were absolutely useless. We have no control of the outside events, nothing. We only have control of our thoughts, actions, decisions, or goals, and this is the most important part.
I decide to have long term goals, short term goals, but I take a day at a time, I live the moment with total intensity, I love every moment that I spend with my loved ones, with this blog, that I absolutely love!
I decided to put into practice every dream that I had, I learned that everything is possible, that we deserve the best!
Fight for your dreams to come true. Don’t need to step on anyone to be happy, Create daily goals, and enjoy every conquest, be grateful for your daily memories.
You have today, focus on it, love every minute of it.
Embrace today, knowing that the future is bright, and take one day at a time, one challenge at a time, and before you even realise, you are in that place that you were dreaming about!
