Chasing Our Dreams

Merry Christmas beautiful people!!

How are you enjoying this festive period? I really hope you have fun, and enjoy today and every other day beyond it.

I’m not cut out for inspirational posts but I got inspired to write this after seeing the movie “Something Borrowed”.

This movie might have had a romantic vibe to it but even in our everyday lives, we fail to take chances. Okay, whats the worst that could happen when we try to chase our dreams? We get a NO? It doesn’t work out? Even then, we keep trying. Or would you rather live with regrets of ‘What if?’, ‘Maybe’, ‘Why didn’t I?’.

We can only get better by the day. Sometimes we wish we were like other people unconsciously. Chances are, they worked hard to be wherever they are, some didn’t but I bet if we at least try to be the best versions of ourselves, we wouldn’t worry or try to compare ourselves to others.

We all have dreams but it’ll take an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort to make them come to reality. There are those who sit and wait and there are those who stand up and work. It’s a choice afterall. It hardly ever happens that hard work doesn’t pay off, it almost always does. It paid off for Nastygal’s Sophia Amoruso and Modcloth’s Susan Gregg Koger.

Today becomes yesterday so tomorrow can give way to another chance called ‘Today’, Isn’t it funny that ‘today’ comes everyday for the rest our lives. This whole concept eludes most of us. We fail to see that these are our chances to take. Sometimes we are not motivated or inspired enough to get up and do something positive in our lives. For example, I’m very good at details, writing down every plan in my head, steps on how to properly execute my plan but I never get around to doing it. I let myself wallow in the satisfaction of hearing people say “wow, good idea”. I then give myself every naughty reason why I’d suck at it, or how it’d fail just because i might just be the wrong man for the job. I get demotivated so I start to procrastinate. “Good thing theres always tomorrow”, I always said. But NO, NO, don’t do that.

I’ve realized that today is the day, not tomorrow, not someday. They never arrive. And by Gods grace, I’ve finally started working on my plans, so far, so good.

Imagine you wake up one day, determined to chase your dreams. Someone else wakes up that same day and says, “Oh No, You won’t”. Only one of you will be right, But who?

Nothing will come alive if we don’t work for it. We all have to start from somewhere. It might not be the start you imagined but it will definitely take you to a place you never believed you could go. Remember, anything is possible. It was possible for Mark Zuckerberg.
