Are you a Dreamer?


Are you a dreamer?  My husband is.  He left the payday loans snohomish military a little over 2 years ago and decided to take a chance.  Lets go back a bit…..

After we decided to separate from the Air Force we moved in with my parents to help us get back on our feet.  We stayed with them for a little over a year with our 2 babies and tried to decide what we were going to be when we grew up.  All I wanted to do was be a homesteader and grow food, animals and the babies.  That’s my dream.  His was a little different.  He wants to create the very best life possible for us.  He is a crazy entrepreneur and he is a dreamer.  He see’s life in the payday loan in waianae way an artist does.  And I think it’s amazingly beautiful.

Dreamers are special but fragile.  I recently posted this on the FB page:

“Steps up on soap box….

I have a friend who sells Mary Kay. She started a little over a year ago and has really done well trying to grow her business. She is at a MK conference right now and must be feeling inspired and super motivated because she posted that her next car will be a BMW (the award for being a top seller). So tell me why are all the comments from her “friends” under the post about how expensive parts are and not words of encouragement? Why is it so much easier to DIScourage people or point out the flaws in their plan? Why can’t we use our words to empower or motivate? Is it really too much work to just keep the negativity to yourself? Perhaps they are not viewing it as negativity but advice. Trust me…..this chick is no dummy and I am sure she is aware that a BMW part is more costly than a Ford part. I challenge all of you to find a post from a friend and give them encouragement and use uplifting words. If we all take this small step, imagine the power we are giving those who are chasing a dream and putting themselves out there…..I promise, it won’t hurt.

Steps off soap box.”

Lisa, the friend I was talking about in the post is also a dreamer.  She started her Mary Kay business with an almost indifferent approach.  She told me she did not really think she would like it and was going to give it a shot…see what happened.  Here we are a short time later and she has done amazing things with her business.  She believed in herself and had a dream of success.  She followed it.  But had she been met with nay-sayers or those of us who refuse to encourage what would have cash loans in kansas city mo happened to that dream?  It would have died….vanished.

I wish people would take the time to see the good in life.  The good in people.  I’m not delusional.  I know there are bad people, ruined people, and nasty mean lost people who will bring you down.  But what if you assumed that most of us are good.  What if you took the approach that not every one wants to do me harm?  It would change your whole perspective.  I know this because I’ve done it.  Like a little child, I’ve started to look at people and assume only the very best.  I never focus on the things I don’t like, only the things I do.

When we meet people we are personal loan apr in usa quick to judge.  We see a mom in Wal Mart with sweats and messy hair with 2 babies and an iPhone.  She pays with food stamps and we assume she is lazy.  But what you might not know is she is embarrassed and ashamed.  Her parents pay her phone bill and the car she drives off is also a loaner from family.  She dreams of a better life and is working on making it happen.  Her hair is messy because she just finished cleaning houses for a friend and stayed up all night reading…studying.  But for now, she needs assistance and love.  Not judgments and harsh reactions.

Another example, you see a frail, thin, starved horse in a pasture.  You cash loans los angeles see weeds in his tail and cuts on his leg.  You decide you will call animal control to rescue the animal and teach this negligent owner a lesson.  What you don’t know is this horse is old and was rescued by the owner of this field.  By calling animal control you have now forced this person, who already invested money in a rescue to now defend themselves and spend more money on a vet check.  Assume the best, not the worst.

Again, I am not an idiot.  I know there is bad out there but there is just so much good.  When you start to look for it, you see it EVERYWHERE!  It’s all around you.  People who cash advance angleton tx take time to care for the sick or elderly.  People who give gifts to children.  People who stop to help a stranger change a tire.  Angels are all around us.  Once you take this small step, things will start to change in your own life.  It will seem safer, happier and more manageable.

Life is tough and for some people it is downright awful.  There are deaths, illness, financial worries and stresses but through all of that, if you have the dreamer’s spirit….the worldview of a child….it gets better.

I close this post with a quote by Dave Grohl that I put up all over my house.


You can never do wrong by being мультизональные кондиционеры в минске kind
