I had plans, lots of dream plans this week. Yes-siree-bob, I was going to another writing class on Thursday night and writing 500 – 1000 words a day. I was also doing more research on a specific writing contest and selecting a story to submit. Yep, those were the plans; that was the vision.
I didn’t accomplish a single one.Â I could sit here and sayÂ . . . there wasÂ . . .
I came down with a bad case of shingles.Â It’s painful and emotionally draining but I try not to complain.
A family friend passed away on Friday.Â How can I write when all I want to do is sit and cry? I hate crying. It just seems like such a waste of time and energy.
Crying makes my face peel. A complaint coming not from vanity but from the discomfort associated with the healing. Does anyone else suffer from this odd problem?
So I’m a crying, face peeling shingle wearing dreamer . . . and what do you do when life has you down? You look for some motivation or some inspiration wherever you can find it! We share our ups and downs of dreaming on this website, but I can’t leave you without a way to move past what is currently happening in my life.
Tony Robbins videos are always a good place to start when wanting to change our thoughts and moveÂ away from our negative thinking. In a few weeks, these temporary problems will have faded and I will be enjoying writing again.Â So you enjoy this video and I’ll be resting, recuperating and changing my thoughts for dream success –
Don’t let your thoughts get in the way of your dreams!
Dawnda’s dream was to get some piece of writing published in 2009. She left the 8 Women Dream group in 2009 to focus on finding full-time employment. We consider her an accomplished dreamer as she published her thoughts here and began her own scary stories blog at www.killeryarns.com and opened a mobile restaurant selling amazing pork barbecue in the northern California Wine Country.
