dream until your dreams come true

I am a dreamer and a doer, I once wrote about myself. For many years I would only dream – I sat in my room and built these big, beautiful dreams for myself, then felt sorry for myself for sitting in my room without having any of those things I dreamed about. I was jealous of The Others, those who were out there in the world living lives I could only dream about.

Somewhere along the way, something clicked inside of me. I realized that if I wanted any of my dreams to come true, I had better start doing something about it or I’d never get anywhere. I was the only one who could change my reality, change my life.

So I did. I became a doer.

Just thinking and dreaming doesn’t do much. You have to put all of your determination and hard work towards fulfilling that dream if you want it to come true. But if you don’t dream, how do you know which way to go?

To dream is the beginning, the light in the dark, the leading star that keeps you on the right track. The dream is the starting point, that tells you which steps to take and choices to make to create and make reality of the goal, the dream.

You want fame? Well, fame costs.
And right here is where you start paying.
In sweat.

You can do it. If I can do it,  you can too.

Go. Dream. Create.

  1. I often wonder what the Dream Police gets from wagging their fingers at dreamers, telling them they better have a plan, they better do this and they better do that and blahblahblah…as if they can’t stand that other people can operate without certainties and guarantees and can truly, honestly believe they can achieve anything if they decide on it and then work towards it. Why does this threaten them so? If I had listened to any of the Dream Police, even a little bit, I’d never be where I am, and I absolutely LOVE where I am (physically, emotionally, you name it). Good thing dreamers often tend to be strong-willed and stubborn too ;) And if we fail as we chase our dreams, we know the Dream Police will still be right where they always were with their I-told-you-sos and their you-shoulda-listened-to-mes. But we’ll always have some things they’ll never have, Annika — hope, faith in ourselves, and the satisfaction of having really lived our lives as we wanted to, mistakes and all, damned the Dream Police. Dream on, girlfriend, and keep on doing what you do so well xx

      “The Dream Police” :D :D :D

      You are so right, Michelle! The people I admire the most (you included), the people who have accomplished the most, all started with a dream. These days, even though my body is absolutely exhausted from all the hard work putting my salon in order, I am so ridiculously happy and proud with a whole new sense of accomplishment because I am literally fulfilling a dream I’ve been working towards for the last seven years. It can be done!

      We – and all other dreamers – totally rock, Michelle! :) xxxx

    you go girl. I just want to see you FLY… and what Michelle said. She’s right, you know?

    It’s never about not being afraid. Sheeet. We’re all afraid. It’s about not letting the fear get in the way.

    Love. YOU!!!

      Yes. It’s about facing that fear and moving on in spite of it.

      Thank you. I hope you know that you, too, are one of the people I admire the most. xxxx
