Flexibility Within A Dream

It's great and important to have direction, goals, dreams and a plan to achieve them though perhaps what is also equally as important is flexibility within that... life isn't a straight line and won't always go the way you hope, want it to or have originally planned and well over time you grow within yourself and so does your knowledge. You find out more about what you love and what you don't, what you're good at and what you're not, who you are and who you are not. Life changes, so will you and sometimes so will those dreams and plans and that's ok.

It's ok to let set ideas go and/or for them to change, it isn't always the most easiest time when this happens but it's ok. Sometimes your dreams and plans end up happening in a slightly different and at times better way and other times they can change altogether which can be a very lost place when you don't know what to do or where to go next. I think finding peace and new direction with this can be found when you look at your core values, interests, strengths, weaknesses and what attracted you to what you wanted in the first place to still create, go after and do something that has meaning and makes you happy... still a dream but flexible in which way you achieve and live out what makes your heart sing and your soul come alive.

With going back to study I have a bit of an idea where I want to go once I'm finished though I'm not set on anything and I'm leaving it an open book for now. A part of me is scared about this, a part of me excited and a part of me just quietly says "It's ok not to know, it's ok to have it open, it's ok to take it one day at a time." This is a different way of thinking and attitude for me as I'm usually a planner and attach myself to set goals and dreams which necessarily isn't a bad thing though in saying this I'm often not good at having flexibility within that which can turn my attachment into something not so good and I think over the last few years I was kind of breaking my own heart by not allowing myself flexibility and openness in which I then proceed to feel like I failed (failure isn't a bad thing mind you), wasn't capable, was useless and overall not feel so good about myself.

This time though I'm open and flexible and that's ok and I'm ok with that. If anything I feel it's an important lesson to learn in life... flexibility within a dream. 

With hope and love
