How many times has someone advised you to “take it one day at a time” and how many times have you thought, “yeah, yeah” and gone back to what you were doing.
Over the past two years, I have found that it is the simplest advice that makes the most difference.
It’s been almost two years since I’ve been active on this blog, and a bit longer since we’ve held any dream on events.
In that time my husband had a breakdown after too many years of work-related stress, he stopped working, I became the sole earner, we got into financial difficulty, and my mom died.
That’s the thing about life, you can never tell when the shit is going to hit the fan, but when it does you have to hold on for dear life, and take it one day at a time.
My husband will be the first to tell you from his experience of living with anxiety and depression, that when you live in the past, your head can be full of all of the things you should have done, and all of the things you shouldn’t have done. When you live in the future, your head can be full of fear for what could happen.
I’ve learnt that it’s when you take it one day at a time, that you can survive anything that life throws at you.
If you take it one day at a time, one day you wake up and realise that all bad things do pass and that you are not the person you thought you were. I realised that I’m actually quite a strong lady.
Yesterday, I logged back into the dream on blog, and discovered that even though I have done no writing for almost two years, that we are still getting over 300 views a month. I was gobsmacked! I thought this part of my dream was over.
It shows you that your dreams are still there waiting for you, willing you on, and when you are ready to take little action every day, they will begin to grow again, possibly into something wonderful.
