Lately, I have been analyzing my life and my decisions so far. Of course, some have turned out very well for me and others not as well as I had hoped. But one thing that amazed me is the lack of true support from the people deemed important in my life.
Currently, in spite of the curve balls in life, I can say that I am happy and excited. I am having visions I never had and thoughts that I never would about my future and they are beautiful. There are goals I have been wanting to start that I am starting in spite of the rockiness and it’s due to the amazing support and continual love [supportive and at times very tough] from others. Although life is great, one concept seems to astonish me:
The Concept of Visions
I am convinced in general, people do not understand how to support someone with a vision especially if it is not their own.
Now, some visions are very simple to support, just to show up and say that you were there to be accounted for, while others are more abstract in nature and can be difficult for others to understand. It does not mean one is more important than another.
For example, if someone in my family had great news or an idea for a business, the first person they usually call is me for support. Why? Because I understand that my role is to encourage, give love and support to their vision.
Visions, in the beginning, are delicate precious newborns; your job is to just love, support, give positive energy and light for it to continue to grow and live. Do I need to believe in its possibility to make a difference? Yes. Do I need to understand it or how it will work? No, not in order to support it. Why?
Because it’s not my vision; it’s theirs.
I wasn’t gifted to birth it, but I am gifted to support it and it’s parent(s) the best way that I know how. Never to be inauthentic, for that will kill it before it starts to grow, but to be genuine with it. Which should not be a hard concept to even follow since I love, and cherish the person.
And I realize that true visionaries get that.
What’s frustrating is not receiving the love back. People I tend to be excited for, tells me to hush or to “not get excited over” others blessings and worst, my own. The very same people would turn into judgmental realists who become blind…when all is needed is a word of encouragement.
Then again, maybe they are not my visionary midwives, maybe they are to only serve as others in my life (family, friends, etc.) and I’m to serve as a midwife for them at times. Hence the gift of friends, lovers, and tribesmen.
So I leave this post with these thoughts:
Never fear the dream or vision bestowed onto you, do it full heartedly with prayers, love and dedication. Protect it from “realists” for they are not equipped to truly see anything other than what has been before them and what is only happening now….they are afraid of their own true potential and gifts the Creator of The Universe have given them to bless others with. Support others, give love and live in love always support yourself even if you don’t know or understand the “hows” leave it to the Creator you do what you need to do continually. Always give thanks and praise to the Creator whichever way you choose so.
