While going through my unorganized closet today with items from the past 10 years of my life i’ve found many random things… letters to my future husband, tons of old birthday cards, shoe boxes full of notes we passed in junior high, candy from past Christmases and many shades of lipstick, haha. But my favorite thing i found was a journal entry from freshman year where i wrote “I want to be an actress, a writer, a photographer and a missionary. Yes, all at the same time.” Its exciting to know that my dreams have stayed the same and are (and still becoming) my reality. I am a (hopefully soon to be published) writer, a photographer in the beginning stages, my life is my mission field and i am saving up to move to LA to go after my dream of being an actress. I’m proud of myself, that’s not something i say very often or ever actually, not because i’m never proud of myself but just because i don’t find it necessary to voice it. But for some reason this was different, these are my dreams and my goals and my passions, and even though i havent accomplished them all i am still WORKING towards them, and that’s something i wanted to share. It’s so easy to lose our passion for our dreams when they are out of sight and seem so far away, but i promise, the feeling of seeing your dream come to life is worth the waiting and the working to get there. I pray you all hold onto your dreams and believe in them. Believe in yourself.
