12:31 am…. Here I am wide awake just typing away.
While my mind is going 1,000 miles per hour it’s in thismoment that I find a sense of peace and calm. It’s in this moment that Irealize that in order to be great I have to sacrifice sleep and I have to usethe time available to me to fight for my dream.
I must remember that I have to keep fighting, I have a goaland I have a plan. God has given me something amazing and often times I have toget the thought or idea out right away. I have to keep fighting. I have to keepbelieving that one day these late nights and early mornings will pay off. Thereis someone, somewhere that needs this! They need something real to hold on to,they don’t want any clichés or fancy quotes they want the real deal. Someone somewhere is longing for someone tospeak directly to their dream. They need a reminder that their dream isn’t crazyand that it’s just within their reach.
As I am writing this, I am currently fighting the urge towatch “Downton Abbey” or picking up the new book I just purchased last week. Iam always fighting whether it be a distraction or my own selfish desire toindulge in the latest social media feeds. But tonight I will fight the urge and stay upjust a little while longer so I can encourage you!
No matter where you are right now in your life, I wrote thiswith YOU in mind. I want you to know that your dreams matter! It doesn’t matter how big or small your dreammay be IT MATTERS! If I would’ve given up on my dream you wouldn’t be readingthis blog post right now. If fear would’ve won this blog would not exist. But it’ssomething about a woman who doesn’t give up easily, a woman who fights throughit all just to give you a piece of her heart. My fear almost stopped me fromfighting, my fear of being vulnerable, honest, outspoken and real almostcrippled the dream God placed inside of me. But when you know God has given you a gift,you have to use it. So here I am using my gift to encourage your heart.
You deserve everything that life has to offer you! You areworthy of a second chance and you are worthy of a life full of happiness andfulfillment. Your dream is worthfighting for and you must understand that it will take time and patience whengoing after your dream.
We go through seasons and don’t ever think for one momentthat because things are delayed that your dream deserves to die. There wereplenty of times that I would pick up my laptop and start writing but never publishmy piece. I felt like it wasn’t good enough and believe it or not I still havethose moments. But instead of being frustrated or discouraged I simply presssave and close the document. Not every idea or piece of written material workedout and I had to realize that it was the “maybe pile” that helped me perfect mygift and ignited a fire inside of me!Embrace whatever season you are in and know that if you just keep fighting you can and will make it! I can’t wait to see your dream come to pass! Keep fighting and don’t stop believing
