It’s Monday and the start of a new week! What I lvoe about a new week is that it’s 7 more days of opertuneties. I’ve been thinking about dreams and ambitions latley. Either you have ambition and dreams or you don’t. I know people who have sky high ambitions and dreams and I know people who don’t have any dreams or ambitions at all.
I’m one of those who might have sky high ambitions and dreams and I work darn hard to make them come true, and to succeed. To me it’s hard to beilive that there actually is people whithout dreams and ambitons, but there is, some of them i even know personally. without judgement I had to ask ” how is it to live a life without ambitions and dreams?” I learnd that for them life it’s like this ; they work only because they have to, they do nothing on their spear time except being with friends and just hang. They don’t care if there never comes a tomorrw and they’re like living on a day to day kinda thing. Take everything easy and what ever happens – happens.
My life is so much different than that. I wake up every morning, go for a walk with the dogs, I have breakfast and coffee – I then start writing and I write all day, then I go for another walk with the dogs, I have dinner then I work on today’s blog posts, then I write again then I take the dogs for a evening walk, have something to eat watch soemthing on tv, then I write for a while again before going to bed. This is basically what my day looks like. I don’t have time for distractions, and If there is some event or something I have to attend or something else I need to do, I have to work twice as much the days leading up to that day to make it work. I don’t have time for distractions because if you want to succeed and if you really want to reach your ambitions and dreams you have to work hard for it. It doesn’t come easy, it’s not supposed to. The harder it is to succeed the better you feel when you finally get there.
I also need rutines to keep my PTSD in check, it doens’t go away and somedays it’s really bad, and horrible even – but it’s less horrible then it gets when I don’t follow my rutine. One slip up sets me way, way back and I don’t want that to happen. I work hard every day to keep it on a bareable level and I can’t afford to mess it up. It have taken a lot of strength, and several years to get to where I am now and it so easy to fall back to where I started and I don’t want to mess it all up with doing something that makes my rutine fall apart.
Someone once asked me, why do some succeed and others don’t? I answered that the difference between those who make it and those who don’t is that those who made it never gave up. Sometimes things takes longer and more hard work than others but everyone can reach their dreams and ambitions as long as they never give up.
I hope all of you are having an amazing Moday and an even better week!
