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?


  1. How boring life would be if you never pursued your dreams. Think about how different things would turn out and what we wouldn't have if people hadn't followed their dreams. I definitely agree though, it is super scary. It opens a part of you that you desperately wish to come true and lays it all out on the line. The problem is sometimes those dreams don't come true. But when they do, it makes all of the sadness and feelings of despair from the ones unachieved well worth it.

  2. So as I was on randomly checking my facebook which i do once every million years or so I found you through your cousin Beth which then led me to your book. And since my goal in life is to read every book ever written I am extremely interested in this one and wondering how and where do I get a copy? I was looking for a plot description and found this blog... i really want to read this! Britt Rowley
