Are You Ready To Fight For Your Dreams?

If you’re reading this right now, never forget you’re awesome.

Sometimes we have to do things we don’t like to do to get to the places we want to be.

And that’s okay.

As I write this, I have to get up at 5 AM to go to a job I don’t even like. But if I don’t go to it, I won’t be able to play rent. Sure, even if I quit I’d still be able to write, but I wouldn’t be able to provide for my basic needs. At least, not right away.

And that’s okay.

Even though I want to do this thing, and I want to write for a living (more than my life depends on it), I have to chip away at it little by little. I have to be persistent, audacious, tenacious. And I have to work harder than I’ve ever worked before, to do this thing I want to do more than anything else. I have to step into the unknown, secretly praying that it’ll all work out in the end.

And that’s okay.

Every single day is a struggle, so I have to constantly be better— because with one single shift in my mind, I could go from persisting to quitting. I could so easily go from going on to giving in.

And that’s okay.

Although I could give in to my doubts forever in the flick of a switch, I won’t do it. I won’t allow them to take me over and wipe my life away. Because while it may get hard, I know I have something real here, something to live for and something to persist towards.

And that’s okay.

No, fuck that.

It’s great.

Life is meant to be lived, rather than adored from afar. And you’re here to take what’s yours, and never give in to the thief of your dreams.

Because he’s waiting for you, right around the corner. And if you let him, he’ll steal it all away from you, piece by little piece, until there’s nothing left but ashes. Until there’s nothing left but ashes and the scent of death.

And that’s not okay.

Not to me.

I’m ready to give it all for my dreams — what about you? What’s holding you back?

If you liked this, why not give it a ❤ so others can see it too?
