Today’s Thankful Thursday may seem a bit different than usual. Last night I had a major sweet tooth. Thankfully for my sake, I always keep frozen dove chocolate squares in the freezer. Call me crazy, but I look forward to reading the inspirational messages on the inside of the wrapper. Well, last nights message read:
For some reason, this message automatically got me thinking, What does “Live The Dream” mean to me? Am I living the dream, or am I currently chasing a dream? At first, I wasn’t quite sure. After thinking about it for a little bit, I was able to figure out what exactly that message meant to me.
To me, “Live The Dream” means doing and conquering what I love in life. It’s being happy with the people and things I do have, rather than to drown my sorrows in wants. Yes, I may of dreamt of a huge home, or a fancy car, but is that really needed? Sure it’d be lovely, but I’ve realized I’m 100% content with what I do have.
However, I also realized that I could be Chasing A Dream as well. I’ve always wanted to help others in a major way, and unfortunately that’s something I have yet to achieve. I’d love to be able to help the poor, the sick, the homeless, or the injured. Yes, I’ve donated clothes & goods to shelters, but that’s just not good enough for me. I would love to travel to a poor country, or a place that was hit hard by some sort of natural disaster. Just thinking of how I’d feel afterwards, leaves me with goosebumps… in a good way of course.
&& now your probably wondering why I decided to share this on “Thankful Thursday” huh? The answer is easy, I’m thankful that I read that message. Instead of running back to the couch & watching TV, it gave me a moment to just sit back & think. After realizing and understanding exactly what the message meant, I felt and still do feel quite incredible <3.
