As I sit and watch the Olympics I am amazed by these young athletes. They all have so much drive and ambition. I think about all the hours, THE ENDLESS HOURS of training and how much they give up to follow their dreams. They and their families should feel so proud. I love watching the parents in the audience and seeing their reactions. I can't imagine what it must feel like to have your child competing.
Tonight, I am watching the gymnastics and I think, these are some of the best athletes in the world, yet they are "young girls." Some are SO young! They work for many years to get to the Olympic games and it is over so quickly.
There are a lot of moments in life when we work so hard at a goal or for an outcome and it's over before we know it. Isn't it such a wonderful, content feeling when we reach a long term goal? What are some goals that you are working toward?
When you watch the Olympics, one can see the passion on the faces of these young people. They put all their heart and soul into the sport they love. I believe finding that passion in your life is a true treat. Sometimes it takes us a LONG time to realize what our passion is and then there are times when we do something thinking it is our passion until we realize it wasn't the right fit. What are your passions in life?
Right now, some of my passions are sewing, crocheting, running, and blogging. Unfortunatley, I don't always have time to commit to each of these. My other passion: being a Mama seems to take much of my time, if not all my time. Maybe, I need to make time management a passion of mine :-)
Anyway, it is so important to find something you love and just go for it. Put your heart and soul into it and I guarantee you'll be pleased with the results. Have a happy Monday ya'll. Good luck finding your passion. I can't wait to see where it goes.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
