Are you lying there because you don't want to be somewhere else?

There is a quote from the movie Serendipity that goes "Maybe we’re lying here because you don’t wanna be standing somewhere else."

It is said when one of the main character is looking for a woman he met and he travels across the states to find her rather than stand at the alter with the woman he is engaged to marry.

I like this quote because it speaks to how much we need to take changes and never settle. If you think something is better for you out there, then lie there rather than stand somewhere else.

All of us have those times in our lives that we wish and dream for something different. We may get lucky enough to get a taste of that dream or wish, but how many of us would fly across the states and go after it? How many of us just stand somewhere because it is safe, because it is planned, or because it is comfortable?

When it comes to that time when you can either stand where you are at or lie down at something new are you willing to give yourself permission to go and try. Go after your dreams? Go after your purpose? Go after your passion?

Yes I know the world puts all sorts of restrictions on how we live but the world cannot put restrictions on our dreams and wishes. The world cannot decide if we will stand where we don't want to be or lie where we think we should be. It is up to you! It is up to me! Each of us responsible for our position.

You want to make your dreams come true? You want to change your world? If so then think. "Maybe we’re lying here because you don’t wanna be standing somewhere else."
