Daily Dose of Chicken Soup
It became a habit to flip a book before I sleep. A short story. A poem. A note.
This time, I had decided to re-read the Chicken Soup for the Soul 101 Stories. Today, instead of just one, I finished 3 and decided to write this before I close my eyes.
The first entry talks about dreaming big. The second one about having someone as a source of encouragement and the third one about missing a birthday. All of which are things I need to learn in my daily struggle.
I have dreams. Big dreams and I realize that I haven't really worked hard to achieve it. If I wanna get that article posted, then I should start writing about it. If I wanna ace school, then I should spend more time studying. If I wanna land that dream job, then I should start writing that cover letter and resume. If I wanna travel places, then I should start moving.
I easily gets discouraged. I doubt myself so much. But I try to find encouragement from others that is why I always feel good when surrounded by wonderful people. I need to find the courage to trust myself and others so that I can collect the encouragement I need for my big dreams.
I am having a hard time getting old. There will be times that the thought of my age delimits me to certain things and feelings. The man in the story celebrated his 110th birthday at a very posh venue with the money he earned when he was 105 years old.
I have dreams, and I hope to find that person of encouragement and don't let my age stop me from working on something bigger for my life.
It's Thursday, though it really was a brain-freezing moment at work, having moments like this makes me say it's always gonna be my favorite day no matter what.
