Dreams and Ambitions


Upon my gradation from high school one of my uncles gave me a book, with a page reference on the title page. When I flipped to page 108, in blue ink were underlined the following lines:

“You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.”

The book is called Illusions and the author is Richard Bach.

This book has become somewhat of a bible to me, a book that I re-read every once in a while to get a better understanding of my life, how I live it and so on. My copy has become a bit beaten up, from being lugged around almost everywhere with me for a good two years. It has underlining, highlighting, notes, comments and questions that I’ve written throughout the years. 

I picked up my ratty little book last night, after my brain got fried from all kinds of chemical equations and equilibriums. I’ve really been struggling with trying to find a balance in our current life that’s so dependent on my graduation and full of uncertainty. Much like everyone else, the Mister and I have ideas and goals of where we would like to be in the next 2 years, 5 years and 10 years, however I have a really hard time with accepting that I need to wait for things to happen.

Reading, Bach’s words, as well as the notes that I had made throughout the book really gave me a boost in my mood. We truly are never given a dream without also being given the ability to make those dreams come true.

So if your dream is an awesome bikini bod for this coming summer, then get your butt off the couch and to the gym. There are a million different workouts that will get the job done as long as you stick to them and use the tools provided to you.

Whatever your dreams, aspirations and goals, you can achieve them with a little bit of work and persistence.

I hope you all have a fantastic Saturday!

I’m going to study some more, and then we’re heading to the Mammoth game!
