We all have dreams we are feverishly working towards. Academic degrees we want to attain, projects we want finished, a business idea we want established, the ideal family we want started, and the list goes on and on.

As insatiable beings, we are always on the move to attain at least one thing we deem appropriate in making our lives worthwhile. Personally, there are some five(5) key objectives, I am bent on achieving before I am 25. From attaining high proficiency in French to learning how to drive to going to Law school and  to getting one of my creative works published. Oh yea! I have got my hands full. Yet despite the will in us to achieve, there are thousand and one stumbling blocks that are always acting as heavy loads tied around our feet, preventing us to run the race and get to our destinations.

Sadly enough, the number 1, destractor is our very self.

We act as enemies within and we keep on dragging,  procrastinating and at worse give up entirely on things we can and could have achieve with just an ounce of determination.

There is this one famous quote by Marriane Williamson, “Our deepest Fear”that pricks my soul and conscience, whenever the enemy within me, threatens to overpower me. Since “our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure”; I will continue to dream and live my dreams.  I will step out and “make manifest the glory of God that is within” me.

Indeed, “we are all meant to shine, as children do” so even if we have failed, It now time to pick our self up, rub the disappointment from our minds and keep moving forward, even whiless on our knees. And just as, Martin Luther King Jr, commented,

                                           If I can’t fly, I will run,

                                          If I can’t Run, then I will walk,

                                          If I can’t walk, I will crawl,

                                          In whatever I do,

                                          I will keep moving forward.
