... when I feel like I'm at my breaking point.
... when I feel like giving up.
... when I feel like tempering down my dreams so they would fit my reality, they would be practical, and they would be realistic.
... when I feel like not dreaming at all.
Today is one of those days when I feel so discouraged that I just think about settling. Maybe I can make the people around me proud. Maybe they would finally be happy. Maybe they would finally be pleased with me.
And maybe I don't have to struggle anymore.
But, I know if I give up, if I settle, if I let go of my big dreams, then I would lose purpose. I would lose direction. I would lose any meaning for living. Most importantly, no one might fulfill my dreams for the people I want to help.
Today is one of those days...
But, I know, I pray, I believe, and I claim that this day will start looking up. If not, then, tomorrow is another day.
I maybe down, but I'm not yet out!
P.S. Yes, I have some bad days too. Today is one of those days when I stumble. But, I just have to pick myself up and start moving forward once again.
