Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
It took me years to realize that yesterday is nothing more than a passing memory and tomorrow is nothing more than a hopeful promise. Today holds our only existence and this very moment is all we really have to put to good use.
There is no better day than today (this moment right now) to actually pursue your passion and to live with the purpose of pursuing that passion or that dream. I am not saying that planning is not essential, but there is a difference between planning and preparation versus hopeful wishing for our dreams to come true. We can prepare ourselves for those dreams by taking action towards them. Each small step towards that dream is a journey towards ultimate success. Dreams are the gasoline to our lives and they ignite us when we catch the dream and find a purpose within it.
Our dreams have already been implanted in each one of us by a higher power. In my case I believe it is God Almighty’s dream which has already been assigned to me to fulfill. One of my beliefs is that life’s next adventure is to live it and my purpose is to unleash the power in stories to motivate others. In the end I believe we were all made equal to the task at hand.
I have already been fascinated with stories and coupled to a passion for adventure, I decided that I would pursue stories of people seeing the impossible. These are people who dare to dream and believe in themselves and have turned adversity into an advantage and continues to move forward as a better, stronger person with a heightened sense of destiny for their lives.
When I was in Koh Samui, I was blessed to wake up every morning at 4 am for a 5:30 am pick-up time to shoot before the sun rises. I had the opportunity to see life awaken as the sun rose on an island 10ºN of the equator and be grateful for the dawning of a new day and a new opportunity. I was grateful to see the tide wrestling with the the position of the moon; one day in and one day out. Early morning crabs coming out of their holes and birds chirping away. The most interesting I have to admit was the sight of Thai fisherman relentless in the pursuit of catching a dream or rather catching a day’s fish.
I realized how much of a gift a dream can be to fulfill. One day I woke up in my study in a town called Milton, Ontario to pursue a story on an adventure towards mindfulness for the Oprah Winfrey Network. I caught a dream, then I caught a plane daring to believe, daring to create and daring to be bold!
Dream The Impossible, did you catch your dream!
