“Never give up on your dreams”

Episode 5: My Heavenly Limitations

When I was a kid, I wanted more than anything to be an astronaut. I fantasized day and night about being among the stars in the gorgeous tapestry of space. My parents never liked the idea and told me to “have a solid back up plan”. Over the years the pestering wore me down. By the time I was in high school I had given up on my dreams.

I ended up inheriting my parents farm, It was a responsible financial choice. It was the right thing to do, it would make my parents proud. After that I married the girl my friends thought was hottest and got the car they thought was the coolest. I wore what my neighbors wore so I fit in and had kids because its what you do.

Now I’m forty sitting on the hill of whats now “my farm” looking at the stars above me. I finally have the wisdom to see that my need for safety destroyed my life. My need to fit in cost me every decision I ever made. My fear of failure cost me a future in the stars. The ironic thing is my parents have passed, and the friends I wanted to impress has faded from my life. The only thing i’m left with is a family that I didn’t really choose and a life I didn’t choose.

Now you’ve heard my tale so hear my plea. Follow your dreams no matter the cost. The only one you should be impressing is yourself. People fade but the person you become, the things you do, the legacy you leave it will last forever. Don’t be like me, follow your dreams.

Thank you for reading guys! Our next post should be on Tuesday at our usual time. I hope to see each and everyone of you again, enjoy the rest of your day, thanks again for reading! Goodbye!Β
