The Need to Follow Your Dreams
Society today, dictates that we need a respectable job to make a decent name for ourselves. We are told to study hard, work hard, and basically prioritize our career over everything else so that we can experience some semblance of happiness. We hear this message throughout our lives and it has made a dramatic impact on us all.
Many of us believe we are left with no choice but to accept this concept and keep on running.
We keep our true dreams locked inside for fear that some people may not believe us or they may laugh at us. What price do we pay for conformity? We lose a great part of ourselves simply because we want to fit this ideal mold that everyone thinks is proper.
The good news is, we don't have to take the road that everyone follows. Now is the time to pursue our dreams, to answer our calling. This inner yearning comes from deep within the core of who we are as a person. Living this dream would bring us a genuine sense of well-being. When we do what we truly enjoy, we live more in the present. We may not make enough money with
this type of career, but we enjoy it and live without any regret.
The secret to happiness is to become courageous and follow what we truly want. If we have the talent and the ability to sustain that dream, why not go for it? The world of today glamorizes certain lifestyles and careers. Reality says otherwise. The key to enjoying life is to stand strong and not let what others think influence our final decision. This is where our inner strength must take control because we shouldn't let the views of others affect our search for fulfillment.
We also must bear in mind that following our dream doesn't mean that we will always enjoy every moment of it. There will be times that we will be required to do things that we do not love.
Following our dream does not always mean that we will experience an overall sense of satisfaction, but this is far better than ignoring our inner cravings and putting them off until it never actually happens. Our fantasies may sometimes be outside our comfort zone but we have to learn to cement our decision just to make ourselves truly happy with how our life has turned out.
By following what we truly desire, not only do we please ourselves, but we are also uplifting the spirit of the entire humanity!
