Listen, real talk.
Chasing your dream is HARD. This life is not for everyone.
There are days that will suck harder than anything could ever suck. It is at times the most lonely, heartbreaking life.
When you’ve found the one thing you are good at; the thing you LOVE, that lights you up – you’ve risked everything to make it happen- it sets you up for many disappointments along the way. It’s those setbacks and heart breaks that make most people say; fuck this. It’s not worth it! This is not a “stable” life. There are no guarantees, no stability.
But those of us who chase our passion and are committed to living our dreams, realize that those shitty days are the price we pay, for the days that BLOW YOUR FUCKING MIND! The days when you’re living inside a moment that at one point, was simply a thought. The HIGH of that, is worth every low.
I won’t quit because quitting my dream, or giving up on my calling, would be like quitting ME. It would be giving up on life, on living. And that is never going to happen.
So you take the good with the bad.
On the bad days you remind yourself of why you’re doing it in the first place, and remember how great it feels to live your imagination.
On the good days you let yourself GOOOOOOO! You surrender to utter JOY. You relish the moment. You overflow with gratitude. You thrive.
If you’re like me, and you’re in the pursuit of your dreams, know this… it will feel like eating shit many days. But it’s the price we pay, and it’s soooooooooo worth it!
