Losing your dreams

Have you noticed that as you get older, you begin to lose your dreams? I remember being a kid and deciding I wanted to be a fairy after seeing Peter Pan. My parents didn't tell me it was a stupid idea, they bought me fairy wings and a wand and I became their little fairy. Of course, I was fully aware that I wasn't actually a fairy but I believed in my dreams and I made them come true. It seems as people get older, they lose that little part of them that is so special. I don't know what happens to us, but those amazing little quirks we have as children seem to become a silly thing we used to do. I guess as you grow up you have more responsibilities. That is no reason to lose grip of what you truly want in life. We used to be fearless, we use to push the boundaries and we pursued our dreams.What happened to us to lose such a special part of our lives, that amazing part of us?

I see so many friends in their same mundane jobs. They're not passionate about what they do, in fact it isn't what they studied for. It's just something that pays the bills. I wish I could make them realize that there is so much more out there. Whether it means learning a new skill, travelling the world, building a company, even starting a blog, don't procrastinate anymore. We only get one life and it's way too valuable to spend living a life you never wanted. One day it's going to all be over, and will you be happy with where your life is? I've heard time and time again that as you get old, you never regret the things you did. You do however, regret the things you didn't do. You will wonder how different your life would have been if you just took that step towards your dream.

If there is only one thing you take from this post, let it be this...

Live your Dream. When it comes true, dream some more.
