Following Dreams

Posted by georgiannasaysjustdoyou on June 4, 2014

We all have dreams that circle around in our heads and hearts. Sometimes we are afraid to say them out loud because it will mean we have to act on it. Sometimes we don’t voice it to others because we are afraid of what they will do to our dream. In our mind, it is wonderful. Our friends and family have a way of identifying all the things that could go wrong if we pursue it, the risks we would be taking, the reasons why we should wait, all in the spirit of love and desire to be helpful. Their good intentions make us want to say nothing. Sometimes we do voice it and the advice flows freely, solicited or not. It can take an emotional toll, make you second guess.


I say do it anyway. Do your homework, prepare, plan, invest in your dream. If it is worth dreaming, it is worth taking risks. Keep a daily journal. Write down something you did each day to get closer to making your dream a reality. “Thinking” counts as doing something. Surround yourself with supporters. Don’t stop your friends and family from giving you advice, just take it for what it is, a community brainstorm. You can take the things that they say that are helpful and let go of the ones that are not. Practice your “thankful face”. Remember, these are the same folks who will help you build your dream along the way or be there for you if it doesn’t happen how you envisioned it.

There are no guarantees in life. The beauty of it all is that the opportunity to pursue your dream is of your own making. Yes some of us have more obstacles to getting there than others, but it makes it all the sweeter when we get there!

I don’t have the answers, but I always have thoughts. Won’t you share yours?
