THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

Create Yourself..My Theme This Month...

Create your own reality, your dreams sometimes can be true. I love this. It says to me that if you truly want something..if it is your dream, you can put together a plan in most cases to bring it to reality. So, whether it is by advancing your education, stepping out of your comfort zone and meeting new people, or filling out an adoption application, you can take steps to get you where you want to be.
There have been times in my life when I have looked at myself and thought that I could be more or do more and then I clearly defined what that was. I put together a list of things I could do to get there. It worked for me.
I think I can be more specific. After my divorce, I decided that it was time to re-define myself as a woman. I decided that I wanted to further my career, so I sent my resume to a headhunter and I got a new better paying job. I wanted to read more, so I set aside time for reading and chose books off of the New York Times bestseller list. I wanted to exercise, so I became a runner. I wanted more of a social life, so I stuck my neck out there and met new people. I wanted a larger home for myself and my sons, so with my hands shaking, I financed and bought my dream home. Money was tight for a couple of years-very tight-but I am so glad that I did it. I prayed a lot and depended strongly on my faith to get me through. Lastly, but the sweetest blessing ever, I took my boys to DisneyWorld.

I want to take my kids to Disneyland too! But it'll have to be AFTER the adoption.....:-)

Shelly said...

You go, girl! I am always surprised when people say they "don't have time to read," it's like saying you don't have time to think. You made me think today, I like your post.

I LOVE YOUR THEME!

I love this post! I truly believe every dream begins with a single step. In this great country we live in, and with God, anything is possible! I'm proud of you and all you have done! My mom taught me a lot about this when my dad left her with 5 kids to raise. By doing the things you did, your children have learned they,too, can accomplish their dreams.

I'm very proud of what you have worked so hard to do! When I see the photos of your beautiful family on the amazing lake, you could think "she has always had it easy". I know you have had to fight, and I'm sure there were many hard days. I'm so glad you went to Disneyworld...and so much more! It all took courage.

I love your spirit and your ambition!

With your attitude and positive outlook on life you are such a good influence on your kids.

Tracey & Mike said...

You should be very proud of what you've done - something many of us have failed to do ... set lofty goals and rise up to meet them! You do inspire!
p.s. I want to take the girls to Disney World too!

Jonni & John said...

You are such an inspiration! Like Shelly said "you made me think today". It's great how we can learn so much about each other from our posts. Now, I just have to decide what I want to achieve.

Hugs,
Jonni

I had planned on finishing my degree before our move to Russia happened.

Now I am content to be learning a new language and traveling!

and when I decide what I want to be when I grow up I will go back and finish the degree!

It is the "secret" isn't it. Push ourselves, push ourselves to believe anything is possible if we set our mind to it.

Ms. Dragonfly said...

I love that and live by it too. I'm a 'why the hell not?" kinda gal myself.
We are the only ones to limit ourselves.

Rachael said...

You should reconsider a career in motivational speaking.

I think I need a pep talk.
