This may seem like a very simple thing, but following your dream is probably one of the hardest and scariest things to do.
Scary because if your dream doesn’t pan out the way you had hoped, does that make it a dashed dream or does it inspire you to think bigger?
I’m grateful that my parents have always encouraged me to dream and follow them – even if they seemed silly. OK, so they knew I was never going to fly but this didn’t stop them buying a Superman costume (the girly version with a little skirt and cape) for me when I was 4…
I am living my dream every single day. I have worked so hard in my career and it has not been easy. You have to be resilient and develop a thick skin, but I LOVE what I do and cannot imagine doing anything else. I’m grateful my parents taught me to keep trying no matter how many times you get knocked down.
There were definitely times that I wanted to give up, throw in the towel but I just couldn’t do it. Thankful indeed. I have so many dreams. I have ambitious dreams, travel dreams, career dreams – I sometimes feel like I haven’t even started what I want to do career wise and then of course there are my personal dreams. Each one is special to me and I am going to do my absolute best to make them come true.
In hindsight when a dream hasn’t come true it’s generally been a blessing in disguise. At the time there’s been plenty of disappointment, but then something else has happened that has always been better. Funny how life works out.
All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. ~ Walt Disney.
It reminded me of something I did on the 07 February this year. My twin (we’re born on the same day, same year… she’s my sister from another mister) Morgan had her birthday party at the Chinese Temple where they were having this incredible festival for the Chinese New Year. It was amazingly festive.
Part of the day was seeing this beautiful Wishing Tree.
You write down a wish on a ribbon, you make a wish and then you throw it onto the tree. I remember exactly what I wrote down and every single thing I wished for has come true. Magical.
|Writing my wish… it took me a while. I wanted to ensure I was wishing well…|
|It made me really think first before throwing it|
