Some people dream big, they go for what they want and they don’t stop until they get there, others dream and are disappointed by life’s outcomes and they give up hope that any dream will ever come true. If we give up on our dreams, what do we have left? Dreaming can only give us hope, hope that one day we will grow up to be what we have dreamed of since we were little, or just hope that one day we will be where we want to be when we figure out where “this dream” really is… I can’t say I have wanted to be a writer since I was little, I really didn’t start writing until I was about 15 years old. I remember sitting on my recliner at home one day and just being inspired to write a poem. Once I started writing, I couldn’t stop. Even then, I didn’t really think about becoming a writer/editor of any sort, I wrote because I loved it, I never thought in a million years it would be something I would want to do for the rest of my life, not only because it inspires me but because when I write, it’s the one thing that makes me want more.
So I’m not exactly where I would want to be in my life right now, and no I don’t get paid for writing (at least not yet), but I do it and in some form it brings me satisfaction, knowing someone out there is reading this right now, knowing that in some ways I may have helped someone with my writing, and knowing that one day this will be my full time job (although I wouldn’t see it as a job, more of a blessing). I know what it feels like to feel like nothing is going right in life, and I know how it feels like when that door finally opens and you can see a little bit of hope peaking out, not knowing where it is going to lead, but knowing that wherever you are going is going to be where you’re supposed to be. I’m not saying dreaming is easy, life gives a lot of disappointments, but with disappointments comes strength and with strength comes the faith that dreaming big, is what will lead us to where we want to be.
Don’t ever stop dreaming big, when we stop dreaming, we stop hoping, and when we stop hoping nothing is left but a little black hole, open your dreams to a new beginning and have faith that one day all our hard work will lead us to a new beginning, a beginning to where dreams come true…
