This post is a day early warriors as I have much going on tomorrow. Also, this blog will be the last one of 2019 as I am taking a few weeks off for the Holiday Season. Not to worry though. I’ll be back in 2020 (wow!) with a funny family one to start the New Year! Feel free to archive posts if you’re missing me too much!! 😉
So, just imagine warriors. What could that mean? Well, for this topic it’s kinda like the question you got asked as a kid. “What do you want to be when you grow up?” That means your job. We all had those answers, didn’t we? Maybe you didn’t know or maybe you still don’t consider yourself a grown up? Whatever the case, let’s use that imagination I’m sure you all still have.
Warrior says in that video above how the Ultimate Warrior will keep running and that’s how we all need to be. Not literally but just to keep going, dreaming, imagining, and then achieving. Whatever that is for you. I’ll link the WWE video at the end but most fans know his story. He had many professional aspirations and being a pro- wrestler wasn’t even one of them. Life sends detours for sure and we can decide what road to take.
If for just one day, you could take a professional detour, what would that be like for you? Imagine yourself out of your current job or situation and into another. I’ll be an example here. Well, let’s see… I did always want to be a wife and mom (no paycheck!) but becoming a preschool teacher was my profession for many years. Once I decided on early childhood, that was it for me. Never ever ever did I imagine becoming a writer of two international blogs, publishing a book Spirit and Belief, having a website, making YouTube videos, and all this! UM- no way! Some things aren’t money related but still shows the detours. Dana is now on the creative writing team of WWE. Am sure she never imagined that detour in her life either. Culture may decide also but it’s all there for you.
Now, if I could change something– hmm… What would I imagine? I guess I would probably be a singer! I’m not really sure how that would get played out but I have imagined it. My kids still tease me about music and singing but it doesn’t bother me. Will I ever do that professionally? No. That’s o.k. though. Good thing I have always loved music as I get plenty of Warrior signs that way!
Now, it’s your turn. You can’t just put yourself on a tropical island here….(ah, how nice though…) 🌴Again, this is about money but not everything is. I mean another career. Maybe you love houses and dream of selling real estate? Maybe you love T.V. and imagine becoming an actor? Whatever it is, it’s yours to imagine. Be that kid again that we all seem to forget about.
I thought about changing this topic to include personal ideas but didn’t want anyone regretting relationships with significant others or possibly having kids! Some things we may regret but know they are life lessons getting you to where you are now. There are shared traits of course between us all. Don’t all of us want to be financially secure? To be happy? Healthy? Of course we do and we all should.
Nowadays, people will have multiple jobs over the course of their professional life. Quite possibly gone are the days of securing that elusive job with your college degree and sustaining it for 40+ years until retirement. Some may still do this but is becoming a rarity anymore with all of society’s changes. Who knows how it’ll be for my kids? Time will tell, they’ll have detours but we must never stop imagining.
I’m not saying “daydreaming” to the point of depression. No pity at all with the “wonder what my life would’ve been like?… ” scenario. Nope! Just fun here. Look at all Warrior did with his imagination without some ideas initially at all. You can be that way too. I have and our brains need that sometimes. Just remember to stay in the present moment since that’s what we have. To think about the past or future is fine but not for too long as I’ve said before.
As I sign off for a bit, enjoy your time imagining warriors. Even if just for a day. Be that kid with all the dreams however they are! 🧚💫😴
P.S. Keep running warriors and I will too! Send 2019 out with some FUN (:
