Pursuing Dreams

Pursuing your dream can be the hardest thing you will ever do in life. You may think at first; "Its not that hard! All you do is go after the thing you want most." But at what cost? How far do you go? You find when you dive into that realm of possibility that there is much more at stake than you first suspected.

When you pursue a dream you risk revealing the secret desires of your heart and placing them on the line. If you keep it inside, it is always alive and well, nurtured by your own imagination and longing, but once revealed to the outside world it is susceptible to all the harsh realities of life. Doubt. Criticism. Self Control. These are just a few things that challenge the dreamer.

But do you allow those challenges to kill your dream before it begins? Do you sit back and never pursue that one thing you've always wanted? No! Life is worthless if you simply allow it to take you where it will! Fate believes in those who believe in fate. We are the masters of our own destinies, and as such, we control what and where we go. Granted, there will always be outside forces that impede our journey or obstacles that divert our attention/direction, but on the whole we are who we want to be.

Reach out and grab your life! Live up to your potential! Dream big, because we are defined by our dreams. After all, what good is life if you never take the chance?
