One of the first lessons we learn is to reach out. As a baby we have no qualms about touching everything and complaining our and long if our desires aren’t met quickly. As we get older, we learn some impulse control and research indicates this is a sign of intelligence and growth. Sometimes I think we go too far. Instead of pursuing what we want when we need it, we talk ourselves away from our goal. We tell ourselves that it isn’t pressing or that there are many things needed more desperately.After awhile, we tend to put off those life changing moments as we pause to over think and sublimate those desires.Maybe a bit more balance is in order.If we feel strongly, then we need to reach out as far as we can.Splaying our fingers and extending open palms to capture our dreams is a responsibility to ourselves and those we love. Receiving our gifts to become and then sharing those opportunities with others creates thankfulness and fulfillment. Our world can use more of both.
