I saw this image and couldn't help but feel that it hit the nail on the head for how I am feeling of late.
I still have dreams, big ones...
I still believe we live in a world where anything is possible... anything.
I still have a heart that is full and giving and accepting.
But, I'm struggling with people who seem to want to stifle my dreams,
my beliefs and my way of being.
When that happens, I feel so dead inside.
Like everything I knew and loved was wrong.
I fought hard for my dreams to become a reality and I work hard on them everyday
so they continue to be an inspiration and a reason to get out of bed.
So whilst I do ponder for a little while the negativity projected my way,
thinking maybe I need to change or slow down or not have so many aspirations,
I also remember that I am well and truly entitled to my dreams,
I am well and truly allowed to believe that anything is possible.
That I can explore, create, grow and soar... because that is what I was made to do!
So you know what, the reality isn't that I miss the kid who used to dream with no barriers,
the reality is that I miss the kid who didn't let others stop her from dreaming with no barriers.
My wish for you today and every day,
is that you know your dreams are worthwhile
and that you know you don't need permission from anyone...to follow them.
