Reaching Your Dreams may appear difficult but that shouldn’t deter you from taking the necessary steps.
Have you ever been in a situation where you have a long way to go and the only option you have is to walk all the way?
Most often, the difference between our location and our destination is time.
As long as we keep moving in the direction of our destination, we will get there. It will only take time.
Sometimes we may need to walk to where a car is parked and drive to where a plane will fly from before we get to our destination but we must keep moving.
Just yesterday I had to get to meet with a few friends, but going home first to pick up my car would have cost me more time than I could afford. So I resorted to public transport instead, since I had ended the days work somewhere close to the meeting venue. The meeting was interesting and there were lots of issues to tackle. We continued till quite late but eventually the meeting came to an end.
I walked with one of those great friends and we spoke about blogging. I enjoyed the conversation so much that I didn’t bother about my means of transport but by the time we got to the bus stop, his route had enough cars to go but there was none for mine.
I wasn’t really bothered, “a car will come soon, I thought”.
He was gone for quite a while and yet no car had come.
To make the case much worse, my right knee was sprained!
All the while I walked with him, it was with a stylish hop.
I could afford to pay any rate but no cab was headed there.
I knew I had to get home but standing wouldn’t get me there.
I faced the path that lead closer home and began my stylish walk,
I remembered a children’s rhyme that had stange words, but had so much to say,
I chimed the lines and took my strides, keeping the pains away.
“Old Roger is dead and gone to his grave,
hum haa gone to his grave.
They planted an apple tree over his head,
hum haa over his head.
The apples grew ripe and were ready to drop,
hum haa ready to drop.
There came a great wind that blew them all up,
hum her blew them all up.
An old woman came and picked them all up,
hum haa picked them all up.
Old Roger got up and gave her a knock,
hum haa gave her a knock.
The old woman got up and went hiperty hop,
hum haa hiperty hop…”
I’m neither sure of the spellings nor the source but I called my style of walk ‘hiperty hop’.
In a short while I found a cute shop,
I bought one canned sprite and continued my walk.
In another while I reached a more central point, where I could get a means to transport me home.
Without hesitation I took the chance and in the final while, I was at my door post.
Oh how important it is to keep moving on!
It gets you closer and closer to your destination.
By the time I was home, I was sure of one thing;
Standing and walking are not equal!
Life is like a journey; with position and destination.
To reach your dreams or to do your intensions, you have to go ahead and take necessary action.
If your dream is your destination then there are times you must walk. Even with a sprained knee or an adverse condition, the only way to reach is to move with what you’ve got.
It may not get you there but to what will get you there.
I once wrote a post about moving beyond intensions, I think you should check it out:
Don't be stuck in intentions, get beyond!.
Meanwhile, don’t ever give up and assume all hope is lost.
You can reach your dreams once you keep moving on.
An airplane may be best but you may have to drive there first.
A car may get you there but you may need to walk to it.
Even if you’ll be carried, you must atleast be moving.
Do what you must do but make sure you reach your dreams!
Drops of water make a mighty ocean.
Little plus little amounts to much.
Start progressing from where you are; that’s the guarantee for reaching your dreams!
