For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to do so many things in my life and have different careers. I’ve wanted to be a ballerina, a teacher, a nurse, and even a writer. As a kid, you tend to change your mind tons of times about what you want to be when you grow up. I think at one point I even wanted to be an astronaut. Yeah, that wasn’t happening.
It’s exactly that mentality that kept me from even attempting to reach my goals and making those dreams a reality.I think the main thing keeping me from doing so was fear. It was a fear of failure and a fear of what people thought about me. Would they think I was silly or wasting my time?
I had to get over those fears. As I got older, I realized that I couldn’t always worry about someone else’s opinion about me. I needed to think about what I wanted for myself instead of what other’s wanted me to do. If I wanted to become a nurse or be a writer, I had to just go for it. Obviously, I’m not a nurse or a writer, but I’ve come close. Lol. I’m a certified medical assistant and do a lot of the same duties as a nurse like check a person’s blood pressure, give shots, and draw blood. I’m not a writer, but I’m a blogger. I have people from all over the world read the posts in my blog and my articles published on The Next Family. These achievements may be as close as I’m going to get to the dreams I had when I was a girl, but I’m happy with that. That’s all that matters- you being happy with your accomplishments.
If while you read this post, you understand what I mean about having this fear , my advice to you is to get over it! Just do what you have your heart set on. Ever since starting my blog, I’ve had quite a few people tell me that this is something they’ve always wanted to do. (Yes I’m talking about you 😉 ) My writing has inspired that drive in you to want to do this. The rest is up to you. All you have to do is get started and the rest will fall into place. You will love the feeling you get once you’ve initiated the process of realizing your dreams and goals. This feeling will keep you motivated to continue until the very end. This dream is all about you and what you’ve wanted to do since you could remember. If you need a cheerleader to push you along, you can always feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Just know that I’ll always be there cheering you on. 😊
