“…The key is to surrender to the bigger dream that life has for you. I’m not living the dream because Im special. I’m living the dream because I was obedient to the call of the dream. So, what is life’s dream for you? So many people spend their life hoping and wishing and desiring things. But this is what I do know for sure: You don’t get what you hope for. You don’t get what you wish for. You get what you believe.” ~ Oprah
Oprah spoke above in her and Deepak’s meditation series on time in reference to her early dream to own a home that had six trees. She noticed that rich people’s homes had trees and the richest woman she knew had six. She had a vision for her life and when she truly surrendered to it, her vision was realized beyond what she could see and includes a home from which she can view hundreds of trees!
That may sound woo woo, but I too have experienced this. I was a painfully shy child and only wanted books and my mom. I would cross the street to avoid having to make eye contact with someone. In my teens, the realization came that living the life I wanted wouldn’t happen if I didn’t learn how to engage with people…all kinds of people. So, I did.
Then years ago, I told myself that I had enough friends. More limited thinking! My front row is small, but expanding my definition of connection…expanding my tent, literally expanded my world to include meaningful relationships with people from all parts of the globe and many wonderful experiences with them. That shy little girl is STILL in me. People don’t believe it because they can’t see it, but she’s there and she’s a great reminder that we are only limited by what we TELL ourselves.
So I ask Oprah’s question again:
WHAT IS LIFE’s DREAM FOR YOU??
My version is WHAT IS GOD’S VISION FOR MY LIFE??
Are you Living It?
