I went for my January 12trip challenge on saturday(yep, done and dusted! Details will come later 🙂
I know the challenge is all about going alone even if there’s no one to tag along but on friday, I found myself asking friends if they wanted to tag along.
As a matter of fact, on saturday when I wanted to step out of my house, I went to call another corper to accompany me but it seemed like the universe was conspiring for me to go alone. None of the plans worked
After having an amazing time though(I finally went alone), I met awesome people who were my photographers for the day.
I got thinking about this twosome and threesome mentality that has so eaten deep into us.
The average person does not want to go it alone.
Yes, we need people in our lives, we are not meant to go it alone, we need support system…I know.
But there’s an almost unhealthy dependence on others when we want to fufil our dreams and desires.
We don’t think about our own determination to get things done, the first thing we worry about when God drops an idea in our heart is “who will support me? What will people say?”
But should that be the first thing to think/worry about?
The first things first is getting God’s backing and then the rest depends on us.
Whether you like it or not, people won’t always support you or tag along with your vision.
Well, they were not given the vision, you were given.
But there’s no denying the fact that we do need people in our lives journey.
So what can we do?
I’ve found out that once we get started on what we are meant to do, those we need are naturally attracted to us.
So you set your heart on achieving your dreams and God sends you someone who is an absolute blessing to you.
Don’t ask me how this works but I have found out that when I put God first and then start out on what I need to do, even if I need to do it alone, people I need just come across my path.
But I don’t have an absolute dependence on them, I have an absolute dependence on God and with Him alone I can do what I need to do.
Don’t get me wrong, we do need people on our lives journey, people who stand up for us and support our dreams…
But all I am saying is this…
This year, don’t let the fact that you have to set out on your own dreams discourage you from going out there.
It’s your dream.
No one else owes you a fulfillment of those dreams but yourself.
So stop sulking about the fact that you are not getting support from anywhere. No one owes you the obligation to support you but yourself.
God sends someone to help you out, praise God!
He doesn’t send you someone, praise God!
Step out anyway.
Row your own boat.
Reach forth and claim the stars you already see in your minds eye.
Bring those dreams to reality even if you have to go it alone.
And Happy new month people!
I hope you didn’t sleep on your goals this past month?
You’ve been booting up right? Making plans, drawing up schedules?
The year’s running, let’s run along with it please.
Don’t wake up in December depressed about not doing anything.
I wish us a year of fulfillment of our dreams even if we have to go it alone.
