the pursuit of ________

Redefine possible

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? How much does it cost to get there? What would you have to sacrifice to get there? a job? a relationship?

If you could be anything, what would you be? What would you need to become that? What would you have to give up?

Is it worth it?

To sacrifice & struggle in the name of all that you can become? To realize all that you have ever wanted?

Chances are, people will say no. It’s not.

So then why do you dream about those things?

Because they are convenient? Because we choose to? Because there is nothing better to think about than your wildest dreams & desires?

I beg to differ.

If you’re fortunate enough to love something, don’t turn your back on it.

Somebody once told me that if your dreams don’t scare you, you’re not dreaming big enough.

I say that if your reality doesn’t scare you, you’re not living big enough.

Book that flight. Skip that class. Make that decision.

Open your mind. Redefine possible.
