Grow Up

Emiya fall

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get paid for doing what you love?  If you didn’t have to worry at all about money, because your dream took care of all that?

You’re not relying on a job.

Not on your parents.

Not on even charity (taking God out of the equation).

You’re relying just on your dream.

We can see the ways in which this would happen…we can imagine it…maybe even taste it.  But then it hits us: well, that’s just a dream…or is it?


You know what I think?

What do you think?

I don’t want to dream anymore.

Huh?  Why?  Dreaming is great!  Dreaming keeps you going!  If you don’t dream, life will be boring.  Life will cease to be exciting.  To not dream is to give up!

No, you’re wrong.

Why?

Because:

“the pleasure of a dream is that it’s a fantasy.  If it becomes real, it was never a dream”-Fullmetal Alchemist

….Oh.


Yeah.  “Oh.”  That quote from Fullmetal Alchemist has always been meaningful to me.  It hit me hard when I heard it, the same way it hit the protagonist of FMA.  I don’t want to dream if I want my dream to become real.  Because then it won’t be a fantasy.  It won’t be a dream then.  It will be REAL.

And I WANT it to be real.

Stop dreaming.  You’re done with that.  Kids dream.  Are you still a kid?  No?

Then stop.  We aren’t dreamers anymore.

Grow up.

 

To Live The Dream

i-am-a-writer

When you wake up in the morning, what’s the first thing that comes into your head? What do you look forward to each day? What inspires you to rise?

As authors or bloggers seeking publicity, we all wake up each day, hoping that today will be better than yesterday. We have goals we are constantly pursuing, and we want to believe that each day, we are getting closer to those goals. HOPEFULLY, every day starts with hope.

So don’t let that hope be for nothing.

I am writing this to inspire you, but also to inspire myself. Don’t believe that anything can stop you, and nothing will. If your goal is to become a better blogger, don’t let your doubts get in the way. If you want to become a world famous author, why let the “odds” stop you? Life isn’t about gaining. It’s about giving something, and giving FOR something or someone. The funny thing is though, it’s only by giving that we are truly able to gain.

What are you willing to give to reach your goals?

I am a doubtful person. I am far from optimistic. I’ve had too much training in critical thinking and logic. Obviously, that can be a good thing. But when it comes to pursuing your dreams?

Screw logic. Screw the odds. Logic only exists because of mystery, because there are some things we CAN’T see coming or explain.  And odds were made to be turned.

Shatter the odds, upset the logic that says “you can’t”.

Tell yourself, “I can”, and then go do it.
