September challenge: Back to School
Lets be honest- when chasing your dream you're gonna have to fight for what you want.
For the past two years, I have had nothing but conflict circle around my writing dream. My family wants me to go back to college and focus on social work. And I get their confusion. I'll be the first to admit in high school I used my English class as a personal siesta hour.
I think that's why I am so grateful for my blogging and writing friends. They support and cheer you on like other. A big thank you to ya'll!
So, how do you fight for what you want when others believe its the wrong path. I learned from my writing teacher, you listen but in the end, you have to do what makes you happy. Focus on the love of the game-whether is be writing, painting or sports. The rest will work itself out with hard work.
I think Shaun White (2-time Olympic gold medalist snowboarder) summed it up best. In Vogue Magazine, he said, "It's funny because everybody asks me what I'm thinking about when I'm dropping in. And the thing is, I'm about to do something really focused. You don't hear anything. You don't think about anything. It just naturally happens."
Let your dream naturally happen. There's gonna be conflict but in the end, the struggle will be worth it.
