Just Follow Your Dreams, They Said.

We’ve all heard it before. It’s one of the most common sayings and in today’s age it is more possible than ever to do. But you quickly come to the realisation that it’s not all about following your dreams; that’s easy, but finding it; that’s the hard part.

The saying serves a good purpose but it assumes that everyone knows what they want to do in life. It assumes that we have all unlocked the box that says hey you over there, yes you, this is what you want to do in life, now go and follow it! The truth is that very few of us know what we really want to do in our short time on this Earth. We go with the flow of the same society that we have been raised and in that flow we forget to stop and think deeply about why we do what we do each day. We forget to seek.

I’ve always liked the idea that inherently we are all here for a greater purpose. That each and every one of us are born with a powerful and unique passion burning inside of us. But in all our greatness, we forget to seek out this purpose.

In every child inside of us, we had a dream. As far off that might sound now at some point of time we all wanted to be something, and it was always something good. I wanted to be an astronaut. Maybe you wanted to grow up to be a firefighter, a police officer, a teacher, singer or dancer; we all had something. I dare say that, that is a good starting point to finding out what your dreams are. I also dare say that to seek what we do not know we must move outside of what we do know, we must challenge our preconceptions, we must try things we have never tried, we must face the fears that once held us back.

So to conclude, don’t worry about following your dreams; that’s easy. Worry about finding out how to unlock dreams that are already within; that’s the hard part.

Thanks for reading ❤

This post was a tough one to write about but I think I got the message through. I hope we all move forward in life knowing that what we are doing now is what we are and have always meant to do.
