I just had a look at my goals for 2015 and quickly reviewed what I had assigned myself to be completed by now. Hmmm, not quite there. There are reasons, of course. The main one being, I did not anticipate the extra workload from taking a new job. Adding 3 new people to my team. Bringing them into my little family, has taken more time than I could have imagined.
But I love it. I find this work extremely rewarding. My team has enriched my life. I would never have guessed it, either. I’m learning and growing every day. In fact, I am amazed at the new challenges being thrown my way. Instead of feeling tired and bitter, I feel energized and excited, ready to tackle.
It is strange how life works, though. I would never have imagined to be sitting in this position at this point in my life. That may have been because I didn’t really dream big when I was younger. Now I let my imagination run wild, both when I am awake and at night. My dreams are amazing.
There is a paragraph written by Joanne Harris in “Runelight” about dreams. I just love to think like this:
Dream is a river that flows both ways – a fact often overlooked by the Folk, for whom dreaming had always been considered territory best left unexplored. But Dream is far more than a river, os Odin One-Eye could have told her. Dream is the stuff of Worlds – all Worlds – and all things come and go from it, as water comes and goes from the Sea, becoming clouds, rain, snowflakes, tears – all so ephemeral, all so unique, always changing but never lost, a universe of possibility where any thought can take form.
Some of my goals may be unfinished as I start Q2, but I have faith. I’ll finish what I need to. I’ll dream new big audacious ones. It will be good.
