“Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.” -Farrah Gray
The moment I read this quote, it became one of my favorites and one that I like to read often. The first time I read it, it sort of caught me by surprise and really made me think. Why do so many people go day after day NOT doing what they love? Not pursuing their dreams? To me, the answer is simple- fear and doubt.
Fear and doubt – something I can TOTALLY relate to. You have all these ideas of what you want to do, but you fear that you will fail, and you doubt yourself. You are scared what other people may think if you don’t succeed. Will I look stupid? Are people going to think I am crazy for doing this? Are people going to judge me?
These are three questions that kept crossing my mind before taking a leap of faith and starting my blog. I was so worried about what other people might think, but the more I thought about it the more I realized it truly doesn’t matter! I am going to put myself out there and I am going to take that first step in pursuing my dreams. I am going to do what makes ME happy.
So stop thinking about it. Take that leap of faith. Challenge yourself to do something out of your comfort zone… something that will give you that first push towards pursuing your dreams. Today is YOUR day and you can do anything you want with it!
