Don’t Be Afraid To Dream Big

In life, there may be times you feel everything is going just right or, maybe even perfect. You are on such a high that not even the slightest bit of a bad moment can make the cloud you’re on rain. But something still tends to stand in the way of you jumping over the edge to catch the simple-ness of your deepest dreams: your mind.

You tend to over-analyze everything. You pick at each and every detail no matter how big or how small. You spend too much time on the ‘what ifs’ instead of the ‘what can be’. You fear the worst of what people around you will think about your dreams. The fear of never making it will haunt you for it. You don’t want to let yourself down. Or you don’t want to prove to those who said you couldn’t make it and that it was a waste right.

STOP! You can do anything you set your mind to! With the right drive and passion you will prevail!

I’m not going to sugar coat it for ya. There are times it won’t be easy and you will be on the verge to give up. DON’T! Keep going! If it is something you can truly see yourself doing. Like it is a part of you that you can’t live without, please do continue!

Don’t get discouraged. Keep your head up. It’s never too late to do something with your life that you always wanted to do! I will be right there beside you following dreams of my own.

I dare you to take that leap. Go on and jump with me. Let yourself land in the unknown. It may be terrifying but it will also be exhilarating! Have some excitement in your life. Don’t be afraid to take a risk and see if that door opens. If not, switch up your direction but have the same destination.

Dreaming is big and your voice is loud. Let it be heard and taken seriously. Don’t live life in the corner of a closed door. Step around and kick it in!

Nothing is silly if it’s something you have in mind for your life. You want to travel and see the world? Go for it! You want to bungee jump off of the Space Needle? More power to you, but have fun! You want to be the next top actress? Hey me too! Don’t see your dreams as impossible. See them as an inspiration to get up and do something! Nothing is impossible when your imagination runs who you are.

Dreams are an aspiration of who we truly are. Are you going to let yourself not be the best version of who you are? Let yourself go and fly! You can do whatever you set your mind to. We all can.

In case someone hasn’t told you today let me be the first. I believe in you! You have a heart full of greatness and confidence. Let it lead you wherever you want to go!

Believe in yourself the way a complete stranger believes in you. You can and will do great and amazing things with yourself if you allow it to happen. Love, don’t be afraid to left yourself soar. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
