The Dream Life

Sometimes you just have to go for it.

All of us have dreams.  All of us have things we want to do but haven’t been quite able to find the courage to do.  The trick is to just start doing it.

Yes, it’s really that simple.

We can choose today, right this minute, to start living up to our dreams.  We can choose at any given time to start moving towards getting the things we really want out of life.  After all, it’s your life, right?

That’s the thing: although all of us have been given this life, few of us accept the reigns of life. Many of us allow our lives to be dictated to us and as so are like the proverbial leaf blowing in the wind.  As a result, many of us live lives as frustrated, angry beings, not realizing that we have the power to effect change anytime we want.

Too many of us view life as a movie that we watch unfold before us.  We fail to act on the fact that we have the power to affect the outcome of said movie, to interact with it and shape it into something that mirrors our dreams.

Now I know that sometimes things happen in life that are completely out of our control.  The market may crash, illness might come, or we may even lose a loved one.  But great people adapt to the challenges life presents.  Even in extreme cases, they don’t allow circumstances to dictate their lives.

Live your life.  Don’t merely exist.  And don’t live just to watch other people live out their dreams.  Understand and realize that this life is yours, and if you’re able to dream a dream you already have the tools necessary to begin living up to that dream.

You just have to go for it.

We’ll talk again…
