If I stay stagnant, don’t reach for something higher than “okay” then I can’t grow in my life, in my faith, in my vocational calling.  If I don’t seek personal growth etc…, then I can’t go very far, and if I don’t go deep in spirit and discernment of spiritual truth then I don’t really see.  If I don’t dream a better future and use my gifts, talents for that then I am not being all I can be.  Granted the Fibromyalgia can slow things down at times, but if I don’t reach then I can’t achieve.  Same with my faith, unless I am part of the faith community, actively so, then my faith can’t grow.  Every flower, plant, garden needs certain tools to grow, sunlight, plant food, water etc.., the same can be said for us, our lives. Finding that balance between dreams and reality is where living happens.

Namaste, Shalom, and Amen
