Realistically

Typically, I hate Sundays. But, I had some really fun and productive plans for today so I just cherished every moment. I forgot about having to go back to work tomorrow, so that I could simply enjoy family, nature and the next step towards my goals.

Yesterday I worked on editing a video by myself, which is the first time I’ve done that. I had an awesome time even though it can be frustrating. I dread doing work like everyone else, but I embrace the feeling that comes after it. I feel so motivated and successful even though it was just one tiny little step.

I’m a realistic person and I’ve always thought so. But I’m beginning to wonder if being realistic gets in the way of success. I’m starting to believe that the successful people are only successful because they believed in their dreams more than reality. If you’re being realistic, you take into count all of the other talented people, your weaknesses, “what-ifs”, and other life experiences.

Even though it may seem safe and logical to be realistic, it may actually be the worst thing that you could possibly do for yourself. I say, if you have a dream then it is as real as you are. If you put your time, effort and energy into something then eventually it will work out. But only if you ignore the harsh cries of reality and those who put all of their faith in that.

Life is as simple or complex as you make it. I get the feeling that your “reality” is like clay,   you can mold it to be anything that you want it to be. Even though all of your neighbors, family, and friends may want to roll their clay into a ball, maybe you want to mug out of it. There is nothing wrong with wanting to get the most out of your own time.

The next time that you want to be safe, or stay grounded…remember that “being safe” really just means that you are fed, clothed and sheltered. That can come in all shapes and forms. You don’t have to have an education, a stable job and a partner to be safe.

Now, I’m exhausted and I don’t have much else to say. I hope you all thoroughly enjoyed your weekend and aren’t dreading tomorrow as much as I am!
