“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.“
On this day six years ago, that quote was my Facebook status. It resonated with me back in 2010 – enough for me to share with my friends and Lord knows I needed the reminder today.
I’m currently in what I could refer to as [yet another] a transitionary period of my life. I would call it a state of flux but it’s a little bit more stable than that… only a little though. It’s scary yet exciting.
Since I was a child I have often been able to see things others didn’t – and no, not in a Haley Joel Osment “I see dead people” kinda way. I have and I’m sure always will be a dreamer and I love that.
However, although dreaming is a wonderful thing, you always have to wake up and when you do, action is the most logical way of manifesting the vision. Up until recently, I was a doer too.
Lately, I have struggled with the concept of doing for a number of reasons such as rationalising to a fault, over-planning, under-planning or in short procrastination. A trait that [in my case] stems from my acute fear of failing.
Having said that, when I’m doing nothing or simply standing still, I’m failing anyway because of a the pace at which the world moves. When you remain stationary, you get left behind!
This post is a little encouragement for anyone who sees beyond the present and works diligently towards ‘what can and will be’. Don’t stop. Today one of my friends called me “brave” because I keep working towards what I want.
It made me smile outwardly but laugh internally when I remembered some of the not so positive things people have called me in the past and I’m almost certain that some still think I’m crazy *shrug*
Life got a lot easier when I [recently] stopped caring about the opinion of anyone that isn’t family or a genuine friend / loved one. Some people don’t understand my actions or decision making but they don’t need to. I can see the invisible and it’s beautiful. The question is, can you?
