I have a vision…
My vision is to… taken from my March 24, 2011 entry
Prevail. Resilience. Bounce back from disappointments.
The vision I hold for myself is what fuels me.
I believe that when the time is right I will go at it full-fledged. I know that I have what it takes inside to accomplish anything I desire to achieve, but I also do believe in a certain element of fate, and accordingly, I believe that there is a time and place for certain things. I am trying right now to heal carefully and not push my body beyond its physical limitations at any given moment, lest my chances of living a healthy, vital life are compromised.
Some — a small number of people that I have spoken with believe that I am living in a “fantasy” world with my vision and need to get “out” there. I have tried to explain to them that the system/structure must be set in motion before I can proceed to carry out my plan. I understand that the structure I create will not be flawless, as I do not believe in the idea of “perfection,” and I acknowledge that it will need adjustments, and I am aware of this; however, I am trying my best to devise it to the best of my ability before attempting to execute it.
Martin Luther King lead by Vision, and he has, for the longest time, been a role model of mine. He has character and morals similar to my own. Granted, I am much younger than him and also from a different time era, but we share similar values. At any rate, we both shared an embodied vision of our future and both share a single-minded, determination in carrying out that vision.
I will work until my very last breath to fulfill this vision, for not ever having had it in my life accompanied by a spiritual nature is what drives me and fuels the fire. I have a larger vision for myself and my family. I am a simple person with simple needs and an intensely rich inner life. I am interested in only the simplest but the richest ways of living, from filling my body with nourishing, wholesome fruits and vegetables to getting adequate, quality sleep to meditating and exercising.
LIVING, BREATHING, WALKING, INSPIRING, CREATING
Life, fire, water, air, and earth. I need little in life but the basics and a few close friends. My priorites are definitely being defined, and I am being shaped every minute. I am interested in what’s important, not in maintain a superficial, artificial life. I will harness my energies and prepare to release these energies adequately. Once I have completely defined what I want I will simplify it, taking something very complicated and watering it down, but nevertheless not losing its quality or rich “nutrients.”
I am interested in developing and maintaining positive relationships this year and provided for myself, setting the foundation to provide for a future family, and being able to give back to the community in which I live.
