“Go chase your dreams. You won’t regret it. Anything can happen if you let it.”
– Mary Poppins
We know we’re not the only ones who’ve questioned whether or not the path we’re on is right. And we also know that we aren’t the only ones who’ve been told we should chase a different path. Disney’s our go-to. While some believe the advice may be cliche at this point (and perhaps it is), we don’t. Mary Poppins is right. Isn’t it better to do what you love than to spend your entire life working at something you dislike just because of the pay? Or because it would’ve been easier?
If your dream is to be a doctor, then that’s amazing – we commend your bravery and selflessness. If your dream is to be an actress, then get yourself out there – fight for it, study the craft, and never give up. If your dream is to be a writer, then never stop writing, never stop learning. The point is, we believe that the only way to truly live is to do the thing you love most. It’s not always going to be easy; there will come a time where you’ll second guess it and yourself. There will also come a time where you’ll want to give up, but deep in your heart, whatever the desire may be, never stop chasing it. When it gets too difficult, as it will, keep going. We promise there’s going to come a time where the dreams will be reality. You’ll build resilience and throughout the journey you’ll learn so much more about yourself than you ever thought possible. By following your dreams, you’ll grow in ways you never thought possible. And the most important thing to remember is that age is nothing but a number – whether your dreams become a reality at 8, 15, 23, 26, 30, 40, etc., it doesn’t matter.
You have to let your passions consume you because there’s no feeling greater than doing what you love.
