Forcing a dream when the time isn’t right will lead to frustration and fatigue.
Be patient. Don’t compare your journey to others.
Patience obtains all things.
This line comes from a prayer by Saint Teresa of Avila.
She lived in Spain during the 1500s.
Coming from a wealthy family Teresa felt a call to convent life.
Money and fame didn’t give her peace and fulfillment…
It wasn’t until Teresa was in her 50s until she made significant impact on her religious order.
People start their journey at different times and places.
I committed her prayer to memory to help ease my anxiety and when I feel my dreams are dashed.
It’s hard not to think of this amazing witness daily (my daughter Avila is named after this holy woman 😊).
Sickness and stresses at work have forced me to adjust how I write and market on social media.
Better to chisel away at your goals (if your life situation doesn’t allow you to dive headlong into it) than to exhaust yourself out.
Slow and steady wins the race after all. ✅
Have you had to pump the breaks on your dream(s)?
How did you deal with adjusting your timeline for success?
