Dreams Don’t give Up! We do!
I took a trip last year to Regina, Saskatchewan to celebrate a graduation that was over 6 years in the making. I was unbelievably excited to watch a young woman, someone that I admire, walk the stage. I sat beside her 6 year old daughter – who was away from her mom for 6 months, living and going to school in Hamilton while her mom lived hundreds of miles away, working at achieving her dream – a dream that just wouldn’t die.
I watched my good friend ride that rollercoaster ride of emotions for 6 years, NOT giving up despite her frustration. I finally watched her achieve her heart’s desire, proud as can be. More than this though, I felt the amazement of the legacy of determination and success she just passed to her daughter at such a tender age.
That little 6 year old was the only child that was invited to join her mom on stage and she did so with such pride and honour. Like a fool, I was crying in the back row thinking how privileged I was for being there in that moment, understanding and knowing all the strength it took for her to achieve this dream; for her daughter and her husband to have supported her all these years; neither giving up on her. It was a moment I will never forget.
I’ve been there myself, with my own children years ago. They watched me walk on stage and dance for achieving one of my dreams that took 20 years to finally accomplish, and a second dream 5 years later. That absolute euphoric feeling was and is still amazing to this day. It’s almost a drug – that feeling of success and achievement of realizing one of your dreams.
It’s that time of year where many of us have children or family members that are graduating from school or university and we will all feel the pride in our hearts and in our souls for their success. Do you have that feeling for something you’ve accomplished? Or are you still waiting for that someday when it will happen? What have you done to ensure that your dreams are on your bucket list, despite having little cash, or little time or no one to support you?
It’s time to do it! The excuses are just that, excuses. We only have a short time here on earth, and our purpose in life is to get to what makes us happy. Don’t be ‘the one’ that gives up on their dreams. You can do it!
