Yesterday, I was talking to my neighbor (who is also an artist) about my goal to contract with a Park City Gallery and his immediate response was, “Good luck. They are hard to get in to because they have their big money makers and aren’t really accepting new artists. I guess if they could make money off you they would take you though.” Immediately my response was, “Am I really good enough? What does he know that I don’t know? Maybe I was a little naïve in thinking I could actually do this.” And I’ve been thinking about that A LOT ever since my conversation with him less than 24 hours ago.
However, when I woke up this morning I had a sweet thought pop into my head, or rather that was strategically placed there by the divine being whom I feel has been guiding this quest of mine all along, and that thought was this:
My neighbors response to my goal was more a reflection of his past experiences and his inability, or perhaps lack of confidence in his own ability to get in to a Park City Gallery and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with MY ability to contract with one. If God truly is guiding me and truly DOES want me to succeed and be happy, then ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Period. And I believe wholeheartedly THAT.HE.DOES.
So I will continue in patience, actively working and trusting, until it happens.
And you should too, whatever that dream of yours may be, because just because one person succeeds, doesn’t mean there are any less opportunities for YOU to succeed as well. If we are working hard and trying our best to do what we feel in our gut we should be doing, then we will all achieve our dreams. There really are enough blessings and opportunities for us all. I promise.
