Sometimes we need to be reminded to get out of our own way!

I was going to revisit goals today but last night I found myself watching a movie on the Disney channel.  This movie hit home and sent shivers over my skin.  This movie I thought was important to talk about on this Take-Charge Tuesday, because sometimes we need to be reminded to get out of our own way.

The story is of a young girl who learns to block out the things that hold her back from doing what she really wants to do.  I am not going into detail here as I truly believe if you have not seen it yet, you should.  If you’ve seen it already, see it again.  As I watched the movie, one of my favorite sayings was recited throughout, take a read when you have a moment.  Its in the left panel under Powerful Thoughts.  
I was reminded that in life, people will talk you out of a lot of things.  Mainly because in their minds, the goal is not possible.  They project that on us and if they influence us, as most of our “voices” do, we begin to believe that to.  As their words set in, our dreams become distant wishes, our heads hang a little lower, the skip in our step slows down and we are left with a strong sense of longing.  Sometimes we are lucky to have someone come along in our lives to give us the strength to paint a brighter future and snatch the words of pessimistic souls right out of the mouths before their breath can meet the air.  
Be that person to others and to yourself.  You never know when an encouraging word will let an idea blossom into a masterpiece.  The movie ends in a beautiful line...”You know that feeling where everything feels right? Where you don’t have to worry about tomorrow or yesterday, where you feel safe and know you’re doing the best you can? There’s a word for that, it’s called love. L-O-V-E.”
People L-O-V-E makes the world go round and the sooner you embrace that the better!  If you’re in the beginning stages of your future masterpiece, reread today’s quote of the day.  I posted the quote with my love in mind, to let him know, he is now what he will be, and I couldn’t be anymore proud and excited to watch his future unfold.
