13 Reasons To Follow Your Dreams {even when its hard and you're fed up}

I think we could all use a little positive affirmation this week-so I'm going the corny route. :)

1.Because no one else can.

2.Because when you look back on your life, you shouldn't have a single regret.

3.Because if you never take that leap, you'll always wonder if you could have flown.

4.Because you are unique, and what you have to give to the world {your song, your words, your art, your compassion}is a special gift that needs to be shared.

5.Because the alternative is a cubicle/greasy spoon/pinchy shoes/power suit...insert correct awful answer here.

6.Because everyone that came before you that didnt take their chance is rooting for you. Way deep down where their soft inside.

7.Because dreams are the color on our canvas. Without them...whats the point?

8.On a not remotely altruistic note-its good to prove the doubters wrong. ;)

9.Because even when its terrible, horrible, crazy, still feels right.

10.Because when you do you realize there is a lot more to life...a lot more to you than you ever imagined.

11.Because as long as you have breath, each day will bring another chance to succeed.

12.Because studies have shown that following dreams is good for your complexion and will insure a longer, healthier life.

13. I'll end with a quote from a female author who wrote under the male pen name of George Eliot, ironically to insure that she would be taken seriously and not considered just another female writer of 'romances'. heh. "Might, could, would-those are contemptible auxiliaries."

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

-Man of La Mancha/The Impossible Dream

Very good list! My dad has always told me that nothing beats a trial but a failure, and that's always in the back of my mind.

I love that list. We all should look at it from this angle every now and then. It's amazing what we do, truly but since we ALL are on the same path, it's hard to see what we ourselves accomplish.

I loved this. Sometimes it is so discouraging BUT the one thing I've found that is encouraging? The support of my fellow Romance Divas! Live your dream girl!
