When you were a kid, did you have a crazy dream that you chose not to follow? Most of us do. I personally wanted to be a singer. What holds us back from trying? For me, it was the inability to have a stable income. For others, it is their stage-fright or their fear of judgment. Do not let your fear hold you back from what you love to do. I continue to do performances whenever I get the chance but I don’t pursue singing for monetary purposes. Perhaps you wanted to be a writer, or a doctor, or a performer. Go start a blog, apply to your local college, go to an acting audition. Start chasing your dreams today. Until you put hard work and dedication into your dreams, they will only be dreams.
Your future starts with you. Embrace change. Learn to love the feeling of being uncomfortable. If you spend your entire life in your comfort zone, you will never learn to live. You owe it to yourself to chase your dreams. Each of you amazing people has a purpose. You still have a heartbeat in your chest because your story is still being written. I am challenging everyone to take some time tonight to think about the path you’re walking in life. Are you content? Do you even know what you want to do in life? It doesn’t matter if you’re twenty or if you’re sixty, you can still make the decision to open a new chapter in your life and start fresh. I have always known that my purpose in life was to help others. This week I realized that my words have power and that I can help others by being an uplifting light. This is my purpose and I am here for you!
