Dreams April 2016

"What are your dreams," he asks. I sit there, numb.
Do I even have any, anymore? What happened to them? Everyone has dreams. Where did they go?
I believe I may have given up on each one without even a fight. After awhile it proved to me they would never happen so why push it. Even though a lot were small they seemed too big for me to handle by myself. I felt unsupported in them and I didn't have the energy needed to make them a reality.

You see, I think anything worth having (a dream fulfilled) comes with a cost. It may be a mental thing to overcome or physical, or even emotional, or more than likely all the above. There is usually a "wall" that needs to be pushed through or perhaps some old bones in the dirt that need excavating before the foundation can be laid.
After all, Rome wasn't built in a day and it took more than one person.
Support is crucial.

I'm on a new journey now. One that I am actively and fully engaged in. I'm not blaming anyone but myself. I'm the one that chose to lie down and do nothing.

I have been given a new view of the future and it involves boldness and empowerment. That part of me somehow got lost.

Funny... my word for this year is 'intention'. How appropriate.


  1. I can relate to so much of what you've written here, Roxi. I wish you all the best on your "new journey," wherever it may take you. I know you will find beauty and meaning there.

  2. Oh Roxi! This is SO good!! I remember the years of squashed down dreams and no support. Part of it was my own fault though. I didn't have the confidence in myself to stand up and fight for my dreams, or even think that they were obtainable. But guess what they are!


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
