Don’t Give Up

Some days, you feel as if you are looking for something and it just isn’t there. You know it should be, but day after day, it just isn’t there.

So whom do you believe? The people who tell you that you’re being unreasonable to have impossible dreams and goals, that you need to face reality, that you should just accept that this is the way things are and move on already? There are plenty of these. Some are “experts,” Influencers, celebrities, medicos, politicians – strangers, effectively. Others are acquaintances who claim to be friends. Some are even family, who, because they know and love you, really should know better.

Too easily, too often, we allow these voices to dictate our thoughts, our actions. Should we?

Or should we listen to that voice inside, pay attention to our soul’s insistence that yes, what we are looking for exists, and although it is incredibly difficult to find, it is worth continuing to look for?

One thing is for sure: we need to be looking for something in order to find it. Because if we’re not even looking, we’ll never recognize what we find.

So keep looking.
