Dreams can become quite frightening the closer you are to them coming true. I'm standing at the crossroads waiting for the next road to open. It's been closed now for so long, but now the blockade that was once in my way is slowly coming down. I shouldn't feel shocked that I'm starting to panic.
Is this really going to happen? Am I really one step closer for what I've worked so hard for coming true?
I want to believe it is, but it seems like only yesterday when I crawled out from under that rocked named fear. It's as though I'm still trapped beneath it with no way out. My entire life has often been filled with so many others disbelief that what I've dreamt of doing will never happen; it's too risky they said. And after years of negativity I started to believe what they were saying must be true. After all, if they loved me they wouldn't say such things unless it was to prevent heartache. Right?
They were wrong. All of them.
I created my own fate, because I walked for miles after what I've wanted for so long. No one can change that. And no one can change that for any of you. You are the only one who can truly control what you want it to. And don't let anyone try to change it for you either. You must keep trudging after what is yours, and don't let anyone steal your thunder; you brought it, you keep it. I know I am.
I've come too far to turn back now.
One thing is for certain. Even though I'm scared out of my wits right now for this new journey I'm about to embark on; I keep reminding myself that it will be all right. I can't let my fears control me. I can't let myself give in to the temptation that it will be so much easier to just quite that if I give up now I won't have lost everything I have on a whim. But if I don't try I'll live the rest of my life with the pain and resentment of regret.
I'm closer now than I've ever been to my dreams. Why stop now? There's no turning back from success.
The road block has been opened. I guess it's time to move on. It's up to me to take the next step. I'm completely overwhelmed right now, but I know that I'll see this through. I have to right? I can't let everyone else down that has helped me get this far. Why should I be any different? I have worked just as hard if not harder. Why should I let myself down? I can't let that happen. I won't let it happen. It's up to me to see this through and challenge myself, even when things seem too hard to overcome.
New roads lead to incredible journeys, don't be afraid you'll stumble and always dream big!
