Just because I know what is meant to be doesn't make life any easier, sometimes I think it is harder, which is kind of unfair. Life is anything but fair though, nor is it easy. I guess that if it was as easy as we wished it was, we wouldn't have to have faith. This whole weekend has been about having faith. Nothing is given to us without first putting forth a lot of effort then having faith.
If I were to give up as quickly as the world thinks I should, where would I be? Not as far along as I am, yet I can always be better. I need to start having more faith in myself; I really need to believe in myself as my family and friends do.
I have a dream I know I am meant to achieve; it's a big dream. The kind that is scary but can be so rewarding. I think that it's one of the reasons that I am not getting my hearts desire at this moment in my life.
For if I did get exactly what I wanted, I wouldn't live up to my full potential. I would be too content and yes there is such a thing as being too content. We always need to be stretching ourselves to be better, otherwise we cannot give of ourselves through service.
I read in 'The Daily Love' by Mastin Kipp how we have to be whole so that we attract whole people and that we need to love ourselves and people in our lives as they are right now. Real and honest love truly is not just loving a persons potential, it is about loving the person where they are now. I don't think there is anything wrong with seeing potential in the people we love.
Where the problem lies as Mastin says and I believe, is when we become disillusioned with who we love because they cannot see all that we can see. That is how relationships and marriages end; we seem to refuse to love the people in our lives for who they are right here and now.
