Dream BIG!

I hope everyone has at least one dream. It can be a small dream or a big goal. And if you don’t have any at the moment, that’s okay, too.

The point of this quote is to not let your fear of failing stop you from going after something you want in your life. I have a few goals, and yeah, some of them are scary. But I am taking things one day at a time. I take a big dream of mine and I have write out small steps on how I can work towards my goal.

That is one of the ways I am letting myself see something as a giant goal, broken down into smaller achievable goals. When I break down my goal into smaller goals, suddenly the goal isn’t seen as something scary. Sometimes when you have big dreams, you start to feel overwhelmed and you start becoming more scared of failing.

We often feel that because the bigger the dream, the more we might have to risk for this goal.

My advice is to not let your fear of failing determine whether or not you are going to go towards this passion. Just slowly begin by taking one step after the other. Baby steps can take someone very far. After all, “a lifetime is a series of baby steps.”

You go after your goals, and never look back.

Fear

The other night I was re-watching Prison Break. And one of the main characters said this interesting quote…

“When I was a child, I couldn’t fall asleep at night because I thought there was a monster in the closet. But my brother told me there isn’t anything there but fear. And fear wasn’t real. He said it was not made of anything. It was just air, air. Not even that. He said you just have to face it. You just have to open that door, and the monster would disappear.”

-Michael Scofield, Prison Break

Be In The Now – Eckhart Tolle

“In today’s rush we think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just Being.”

-Eckhart Tolle

This quote is completely true. In this world we are all in a rush to get to point A to point B that we often forget to stay mindful. But it is important stay in the present.

We often feel the need to always want more, more and more but if we can’t be happy with what we have what makes us think that we will be content with more?

We must stay in the present. Don’t let yesterday’s mistakes, failures take up much space in your thoughts. Learn from it and move on. Don’t let your worries or doubts ruin your today.

Embrace the now! Let everything else go.

Overcoming A Fear

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that when I went to see my dentist he told me that I have two cavities. I was so worried so I had to make sure that I made plans to see my boyfriend before my appointment. Seeing him makes me happy. šŸ™‚

I’m such a sweetheart (or so I’ve been told – sorry, I’d rather not come across as egotistical) because I brought breakfast with me. I bought cinnamon raisin bread as well as banana chunk muffins. And no breakfast is completed without tea. I came over with three teas because I wasn’t certain which tea he would prefer to have. He picked Earl Grey with Vanilla. That is one of my favourite teas.

Anyway, after that he unfortunately had to depart to go to work. I chilled with his family for a bit. After realizing that I consumed that much sugar, I had to thoroughly brush my teeth. I have to show my dentist that I’m taking care of my tooth. Good thing his ma bought me a toothbrush whilst we were running errands a few weeks ago.

I started walking to my bus stop and I began fretting. I tried my best to calm myself down but I didn’t really.

My dentist even had to tell me to not worry. But that doesn’t work. I have a tendency to worry a lot. Alas it’s a work-in-progress.

He said something to myself whilst he was analyzing my tooth and I asked; “What?” Again, he told me to not to worry.

The drilling really hurt so I asked him if he was going to be done shortly and he said; “Almost done.” Then he proceeds with more drilling and more with the procedure and grabs more tools from a cupboard.

Me: You said you were almost done five minutes ago!

I only said that because my tooth was sore and I wanted it to be over.

Then eventually my wish became granted. My dentist told me to look in a mirror and see how white and beautiful my tooth is. Those are my dentist’s words. My dentist doesn’t know me too well because I can be vain at times.

I told my boyfriend that my dentist appointment went well and then added that my dentist thinks I’m sassy and my boyfriend said; “Probably.”

But that’s okay. I’ve had people say that they adore my sassyness and that I should embrace it.

Today, I will overcome a fear as best as I can. Even if it’s in baby steps.I will take my time and slowly but surely overcome it. There is no time limit so take as long as you need to. Baby steps will take you far.

Dentist Appointment

I’ve always been terrified of seeing my dentist. Well, today I had an appointment just a check-up cleaning and I was freaking out on the inside. Despite that one of my resolutions was to not worry, I still worried. I shall work on this.

My dentist told me that I have two cavities.Ā Alas,Ā all of sugary snacks like my s’mores before bed caught up to meĀ andĀ all of my candy and chocolate I’ve had recently…

One of my cavities already got drilled and it was quite painful. And now I have a month to wait for my other cavity.

I remember when my sister and I would get a cavity, well the majority of the time was more than one… But we vowed to ourselves that we would brush and floss and use mouth wash after EVERY MEAL. Well, that was fun for the day that it lasted.

Now I’ve been sitting here in despair. I haven’t even looked at my s’mores or Nutella all night. Time to start eating less sugar before bed.

Off to brush my teeth again!
