Dear To Dream

Have you ever had a dream that others disapproved of or even tried to discourage you from pursuing?  Have you ever put your dreams aside because you chose stability and financial certainty?

You know that people will try to discourage you from pursuing your dreams because they have never pursued their own dreams or they gave up after the first failure, right?  The best thing to do is to look at the people who are trying to give you any advise.  What have they achieved? Are they living a dream? No offense, but you can’t give somebody an advise if you are not a living proof of what you preach.

In the end, what matters is what you want to be able to say at the end of your life. The truth is when you are dying, you will not care much about the size of your house or the car you drove or even what designer boots you owned. You will care a lot more about who you were and how you lived. You’ll care more about what dreams you made come true and how many amazing memories you have of things you did that made your heart skip a beat.  It’s all about memories of things and events that shaped you and made you who you are today.  You will care about whether or not you took the risk your dreams required, whether you were willing to do whatever it takes to reach your dreams and live according to what you believe in.

Do you think it is worth living safe and making decisions that bring stability and not happiness and satisfaction?

Don’t you like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past? You can’t change your past and you can’t predict future but you can define right here and right now…Isn’t knowing that you have tried to make your dreams come true better than living and wondering what if….?

What do you think?

    Oh, that has happened to me so many times I can’t even count them all…

    I’ve always kind of known what I wanted out of life (the option to lead a creative life, even though it took me a long time to find out not only ‘who’ I was, but where I really fit), and made decisions accordingly. I’m pretty positive I alienated a lot of people (“family” who thought I should do things different, etc), but like I told a close friend of mine earlier this week, “The people who really love you will stick with you and cheer you on the path you choose.”

    Dreams are so very important. I know I’d rather die having tried to do something I love than go out never having lifted a finger toward it…!
