Keep On Keepin’ On


Yesterday’s blog touched on the thought of inertia (inactivity) regarding your hopes, dreams and goals. I suggested that it might be time to be moving on.

In youth, we are full of hopes and dreams. Sometimes we even set goals, but mostly just exercise “wishing upon a star” thoughts as if all that we hope and dream about will magically come true and we will “live happily ever after.” Thinking requires no physical activity. Thinking without activity is a “Once upon a time” fairytale process. Maybe it’s time to move on and do something about those hopes and dreams. Maybe it’s time to “roll up your sleeves” and do something.

The dreams of youth fade quickly in the reality of life. Hopes and dreams must take on arms and legs and continued movement. If you find yourself on the wrong path, backtrack and find the path you need to travel. Keep moving on to your hopes and dreams. Keep on keepin’ on.

  1. Yes, keep movin’ on through the sunlight and storms of life. One day we will find the rainbow.
    God bless. Truly enjoy your posts


  2. Great advice, Butch. I’ve found that sometimes the dreams, just like old clothes, no longer fit. I take a moment and think about them, package them up in my mind, and let them go. Then I create new ones. How to start? Write a list of all you’re thankful for. Then write a list of what can go. Start out with the good and work toward the old … liberating 🙂



  3. Thanks for sharing the wisdom you’ve acquired over the years. I am in a time of “stepping out” right now and feel a little overwhelmed some days. The reminder that these days will be ones to look back on with thankfulness some day helps me keep moving forward each day to serve our Lord. So…bring on seminary, fatherhood, and novel writing! By the power of Christ, I can do this!


    • Clayton, “wisdom” so often comes from mistakes. Don’t be afraid to make them. Learn from them. Relaz and enjoy the journey. Go with God!


  4. I can make anything possible in my head, but to make it real I have to DO something about it.
    I’ve noticed on a couple of blogs there seems to be a problem with the like button. 😦


Thank you for your thoughts.
