One thing I want to make clear: Following your dreams is not unrealistic. What people do, what we do, we compare it to other’s plans and thoughts and that’s when self-doubt comes. I was reading an article early this morning and the title was “Is following your dreams unrealistic?”. “Stop thinking of your art as something to be compared. Each person has a story — a unique lens from which they see the world. Your art should reflect this. You are the only person in the universe with your story.” I, personally, don’t want to do something for the rest of my life just because it sounds rational and I get payed. No. Am I supposed to wait for everyone to get their shit together first and then figure out what I want to do with my life? No. That’s not how it works. Sometimes we have to be a little selfish and think of what is going to make us happy. What’s the best for us. Not what is the best for someone else because at the end, it’s you being the miserable one. I am desperate for the future. I want to see things and places I’ve never been before. Is that a sin? To think such things? We are taught to have “realistic” dreams because of failure. PEOPLE ARE SCARED TO FAIL BUT IT’S FINE BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO FAIL MILLION TIMES ONE WAY OR ANOTHER I AM SORRY TO BREAK YOU. Try. If it doesn’t work, then try something else because you have forever to discover every beauty of this Earth. You have forever to do what you love everyday. Are you gonna wait for forever to come so then to make some action? Don’t you want to take action at this time so then you can enjoy it forever? I hope it made sense by the way. “…explore, research, learn, test the waters. The key is not to ignore it,”(Mendelson, 2013). She also explains how all dreams are realistic if they meet your criteria. Don’t let your dream die. Give it a chance. If it’s not for you, you’ll know. Just.. don’t give up yet.
