Chasing the Wind

This is one of the hardest things I have ever tried to do, but yet, I keep trying. I finally figured out just today that chasing the wind and chasing dreams are not the same. I’m fact, they are pretty much opposite of each other.

Do you ever want something so badly but it just doesn’t want to cooperate? That’s because it’s the wind. You can chase it forever and a day and you’re not going to be a second closer to capturing it. The wind is a tease that brushes against your skin, tussles up your hair, and makes you crave more. Sometimes it carries with it the sweet, exciting aroma of an awakening earth in the springtime. Regardless of its beautiful appeal, you cannot capture the wind.

The wind simply does not want to be caught.

Dreams, on the other hand, desire to be caught and they want to be lived to the fullest.

A lot of time and energy is wasted on chasing something we will never have. Why do we still continue? Do we yet see a glimmer of hope? Realize that if you haven’t caught it by now, it’s probably the wind and nothing more. So let it go. Nothing will ever work unless both sides are in agreement. Dreams like to agree.

Letting go is hard. I know that better than anyone. That’s been the story of my life. But one must realize that “a letting go” opens up the door to other possibilities. Tangible possibilities.

So it’s up to you to decide what is truly a dream and what is simply chasing the wind. Let the wind go. Ask God for guidance and direction in your life.

Thanks for joining me today. I tell you what…this flu is kicking my butt. I will skip coffee for yet another day and drink my elderberry tea. ♥️
