I’m a true believer.
I honestly believe that when you have an overwhelming desire to accomplish something, it can happen. I sound like one of those cheesy motivational speakers, but it’s true.
We each have that “something.” That nagging desire/dream/goal that won’t go away. That burn in your chest that is sometimes so overwhelming you have to stop and force yourself to breathe.
With most of you, like me, it’s the desire to create. And not only create, but to create something wonderful. Something magical. Something that can stand the test of time. Or maybe it’s just to create something that uplifts and inspires someone. Or even just to provide an escape for awhile.
It’s crazy how LONG you can be struggling and striving and working toward something, and not know if it’s even going to amount to anything… Day after day of facing doubt, seeing others succeed, and not knowing if you’re “meant” to do something, or if you’re “good” enough.
But I believe you have to trust in that inner desire. That inner spark—or gut feeling that’s drawing you forward. You’ve got to act on those feelings, because they can lead to great things.
It’s amazing what can happen when you seize that feeling and just… go for it. And sometimes, that desire/feeling is the only thing we have to go on. And sometimes, it doesn’t seem to be enough.
But I know. I know that amazing things come to people who persevere. People who take the steps forward even when everything/everyone around them says it’s crazy.
It isn’t crazy.
You will/can do it. And to me, it almost seems like a part of us already knows we’ll succeed. Isn’t that our gut? Like we’ve already lived it, and now just have to act.
I know this IWSG post is a bit different, but these are my feelings on the topic today! Thanks, Alex, for being so awesome.
Red. Head. Out. :D
