Hold Onto Your Dreams

When life becomes crazy
and your mind is a mess
“Hold onto your dreams”
and hope for the best

If your path becomes unclear
you’ll start to have doubt
“Hold onto your dreams”
for it’ll all work out

It may seem bleak
with no future in sight
“Hold onto your dreams”
everything’ll come to light

Anything is possible
with the right frame of mind
“Hold onto your dreams”
all your desires will be aligned

You’ll achieve your life’s goals
with motivation and flair
“Hold onto your dreams”
inspire hope to everyone, everywhere.

Daring The Impossible

A01

Dream big. have outrageous goals;

become the envy of those around you

for daring the impossible

Life is a wide open playground

that needs to be explored

with eyes wide open

and a cavalier attitude

Retain that dogged determination

every time you fall

and rise with vim, vigor

and an abundance of spunk

Become that person

you were truly meant to be

and be an example,

that bright shining light;

passing on that spark of hope

and inspiring others

to reach for their dreams

no matter how grandiose it may be.

When It Feels Scary To Jump…

While channel surfing couple years ago, I happened upon a channel that featured a 2014 movie called “A Most Violent Year”.  Although I consider myself a movie buff, I’ve never really heard of this movie until that one fateful day.  I won’t tell you what the plot was because I stumbled upon it and really didn’t watch it till the end.  But I did happen upon a scene where a man by the name of Abel Morales said “When it feels scary to jump, that is exactly when you jump, otherwise you end up staying in the same place your whole life.”

This one line totally resonated with me and I just had to write it down.  I turned off the TV and soaked in those words.  I took it to heart and it quickly became etched within my subconscious.  You could almost say that I had an epiphany of some sorts.

This one quote, this one line from a movie I have never seen told me that in life, you need to take chances regardless of the outcome.  There are times when you’ll succeed and there are times when you’ll fail, but you must learn from it in order to grow into the person that you were meant to be.  Life is too short to play is safe, it needs to be explored with eyes wide open.  Life if full of endless possibilities with the potential to be great.

I took this to heart and felt that I needed to try anything even if it took me out of my comfort zone.  I lived by the code of being open to different things; doing so would broaden my horizons both mentally and physically.  Living by this way of thinking helped me to try different things; just facing the impossible or the uncomfortable with complete abandonment.  Living this way made me realize that to do these things require both strength and faith; the will to pursue what your heart desires with the self-confidence to know that you’ll achieve something positive from it regardless of the results.

Ever since then, I’ve been bestowed with nothing but great outcomes.  I dared to take a chance and came out a winner so to speak; I count my blessings everyday for doing so.  So if you are faced with doing something that takes you out of your comfort zone, go all in and bet on yourself.  The first step will be scary, terrifying even…but the end results will be much more rewarding.  Take that leap and dare to be great!

Our Dreams

Our dreams,

define us,

brings out our passion,

unites us mind, body and soul,

shapes our character

Our dreams,

make us work above and beyond,

pushing us to the brink,

testing our resolve,

our faith

Our dreams,

create doubts,

questions our path,

instills a sense a failure,

gives a dose of reality

of something that might never be

But to not make an attempt

means eternal regret,

what ifs,

what could’ve been,

loss of purpose in life

So we remain vigilant

and stay the course,

knowing that possibilities

are within reach

If our hearts are true,

and our will is strong,

fearless,

it is then,

and only then

will we be able to reach

Our dreams.

When Your Dream Becomes Reality

Dream

When your dream becomes reality,

a sense of self-accomplishment,

unbridled joy,

boastful pride,

all come together

in one harmonious fashion

When your dream becomes reality,

the endless hard work,

excruciating trials,

never-ending tribulations,

were all the catalyst

in creating your character

When your dream becomes reality,

new found worries arise

trepidation,

dismay,

the fear of never achieving

another goal again

But you’ve been down this road

you never gave up

against all odds,

all naysayers,

you prevailed,

you believed in yourself

and in doing so

that is

When your dream becomes reality.
